Overlooking the Indian River is the second floor of Ryan’s Pizza, a popular restaurant located on the eastern edge of Cocoa Village. Ryan’s boasts a friendly and attentive staff. Along with a full bar with a vast beer selection, delicious pizza with ample portion sizes, and multiple high-definition televisions showing any sports one could want.

The View

Without a doubt, the crowning jewel of the upper deck is the perfect view of a blue Indian River. Along with Merritt Island just on the other end, sailboats breezily go by and occasionally dolphins can be spotted. Palm trees gently sway by the shore where people play volleyball or go fishing just off of Riverfront Park. 

Ryan’s is just a short walk away from Cocoa Village’s many shops, breweries, and historic buildings. The proximity makes it a popular location for families and friends to congregate after a day spent shopping in the village. 

Truly an experience that completely encapsulates living on the Space Coast near the Indian River. Ryan’s Pizza in Cocoa Village is a must-go for any Central Florida enthusiast.
