My wife and I love this place. I’m not normally a healthy eater but my wife just started a new diet. We had the cauliflower crust pizza and I have to admit. I really enjoyed it. This is a cool local place. We’ll be back!!!

Great pizza, rib tips, antipasto salad, everything. Done to perfection, and one mile from home. Neat clean place, friendly and close to the beach. A neighborhood jewel.

We ordered both the Hawaiian and bbq chicken. Both weren’t memorable. Consider something else. Not worth the 40 min wait or the bogo Tuesday pizza deal.

Look... its always the same recipe... Good people produce great food at all price levels. Surfside Pizza has new owners and they seem to have the right recipe. The pizza is great... the sandwiches are ridiculous... and the price is right... Check out their specials......More
