Ryan’s Village Pizza & Pub

A familiar family-owned pizzeria in Cocoa Village is making upgrades you can’t miss, nor would you want to. Prior to the debut of Ryan’s Village Pizza & Pub in October 2006, the Ryan family had no previous experience as restaurant owners, rather the idea came about from a passion the Ryan siblings had for making pizza. Mike Jr. proposed the idea of opening a pizza restaurant to his father, Mike Sr., who was in just the right place in his career to embrace this new venture. Ryan’s first operated out of a small portion of their current location, which they fell in love with upon first sight. Originally only large enough to seat 50 guests, Ryan’s soon expanded into the bar next door in order to accommodate an additional 100 guests. This is the Ryan’s you know and love today.

The next chapter for Ryan’s includes relocation to Parkside Place at 4 Harrison Street. This relocation to the eastern-most end of Parkside Place, the recently redeveloped plaza adjacent to Riverfront Park in Cocoa Village, will offer an expanded menu, second floor open-air seating and bar, 20 additional employees, and a spectacular view of the Indian River. This new location boasts nearly 10,000 square feet, room enough to seat approximately 290 guests, and features a custom shamrock brick inlay contracted by Gary Kikillus, a.k.a. Rock Angelo. This project resulted in the utilization of many local businesses, which is fitting as supporting their community is very important to and exemplifies the Ryan family. Ryan’s welcomes cruise passengers, boaters, residents of Brevard County and beyond. As a family-owned business, Ryan’s welcomes you to their family.
