ST. GEORGE – Pirates once again invade St. George with the opening of Pirate Cove Pizza at 1091 North Bluff, Suite 801, in the same location as the former Pirate Island Pizza which closed in 2011. After the building sat empty for two years, a new ownership group, Black Beard Foods LLC, saw the potential and the opportunity to bring the operation back to Southern Utah with many enhancements.

Under new ownership, Pirate Cove Pizza hopes to bring a missing element to the Southern Utah entertainment landscape.

“Our owners are local and care about this community,” said Lisa Boulet, manager of Pirate Cove Pizza. “They realized that St. George needs an establishment like this where families can come and experience something truly out of the ordinary and enter a new world of Pirates, ships, hidden treasures and mystery.”

Pirate Cove Pizza will be an important part of the community already adding more than 75 employees with more being added prior to opening.

Pirate Cove Pizza offers an experience unlike anything else in the region. The restaurant is one of the largest in the state at just over 17,000 square feet and features a life-size pirate ship, dark caves, palm trees, forts, tiki settings and a serene enchanted forest. Each one of the features comes alive with full audio and animatronics similar to that of a theme park including talking skeletons, monkeys, birds and a pirate fight scene complete with firing cannons.

“In addition to the experience, one of the things we set out to do was to provide incredible food services so while children are playing the arcade, parents can enjoy an incredible meal,” said Janny Caldwell, also a manager of Pirate Cove Pizza. “We have really focused on the quality of the food and will be introducing items new to Southern Utah such as flat bread pizza, true deep dish pizza and meatball sliders.”

The menu will feature delicious pizza offerings including deep dish, flat bread and traditional pizzas.  Other menu items include sandwiches, pastas, salads, rolls, soups and desserts.

Pirate Cove Pizza can accommodate parties of up to 200 individuals in its upstairs dining room and can seat over 380 guests. A grand opening is scheduled beginning May 7 and will run for 2 weeks during which guests can enter to win pizza for a year with no purchase necessary.

    Glad to see a new locally owned restaurant opening in STG. I hope they succeed and inspire others to bring more restaurants and different menus to town. I think this is the second pizza/pasta joint to open in the last 30 days.

  • John Bigbootay May 1, 2013 at 9:01 am

    finally! I’ve been waiting for this day ever since Pirate Island Pizza closed!

  • Ruth May 1, 2013 at 9:05 am

    What is the other pizza/pasta joint? I am looking forward to seeing what they do with this place!

    • hudrockson May 1, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      @Ruth… Roy’s Pizza just opened on 700 south in Basilas old location.

  • Mary May 1, 2013 at 10:11 am

    So happy to see it reopen!

  • Gary May 1, 2013 at 11:14 am

    If they are as expensive as they previous one they also will have a short sail off the edge of the world.

  • JJ Slice May 1, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Wondering if Pirates actually ate pizza?

  • JJ Slice May 1, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    They should also take care to pay their landlord and not cheat the taxing authorities which were also problems that doomed the prior pirate establishment.

  • Mat May 3, 2013 at 10:00 am

    I think the prices will be fair this year, and the food quality is going to be so much better than before. Also you all must remember this is brand new owners they have nothing to do with what happened with the last owners, tax cheating not paying landlord whatever rumors there were, everyone is new and trying to bring back something exciting and fun to st george which this town desperately needs.

  • Daniel "Blu" Deep May 7, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    Aye…me harties, pirates do indeed eat pizza, it be a goodn’ with rum. Hmmmm…anything with rum! Where’s the rum?

    We be jolly…they be open fer business again.

  • Angie B. May 7, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Really hope their food is better because it wasn’t all that great before and I think that’s what primarily lost their business to.

    • Matthew Sevald May 16, 2013 at 12:40 am

      Just went there with the family the other day, and the food was rather lackluster – certainly nothing to write home about. I had the meatball sliders and they were way too huge for the greasy garlic roll “bun” they were served on. Each one fell apart as you tried to eat it; meat was bland and dry.
      Wait staff was polite but slow; didn’t come around to fill drinks nearly often enough – they’d be better just to leave a carafe of water if they’re not going to come around every 5 minutes to refill.
      The arcade had many broken machines, tickets were running out and only one busy attendant was around at the counter and not available to come out and replenish them. The prizes at the counter were extra cheap and cheasy, even for typical fare at such places.
      All-in-all, not someplace I will ever bring the family to regularly. Perhaps every several months when the kids have a hankering to see indoor trees and animal sounds and driving to the Rainforest Cafe in Vegas just isn’t practical. Yes, I’d rather drive two hours and spend the gas and money there than go to Pirate Cove Pizza again.

    One of the ways the new owners can turn a profit is to better utilize the gift shop area. The offerings at Pirate Island Pizza were always disappointing. They would be smart to offer a lot of varied items (instead of 10 million t-shirts) with low to high price points. Every kid leaving the place is going to want to buy something. I can’t believe there weren’t ever swords available, or the shiny gem rocks like you can buy in other places for $5-6/bag.

    They would do well to pattern the new gift shop, if there is one, after the one outside of the “Pirates of the Carribbean” ride. That place is always packed. Everyone wants pirate loot. Each time I walked through the gift shop at the Pirate Island Pizza place… I kept hoping and expecting to have that same experience and excitement as at Disneyland, and I was always extremely disappointed.

    For the boys: varied swords & scabbards, different style pirate hats including captain’s hats, scarf & earring set, hooks, eye patches, pirate coins & booty, different types and sizes of pirate flags, treasure maps, treasure chests.

    For the girls: jewels & sparkly rocks you can buy in bulk (fill up a bag), jewelry, pirate items in pink & crystals, mermaid stuff.

    It seemed like the last owners focused on selling to adults, and they COMPLETELY missed the boat.

  • Heather May 15, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I am so excited for this! My kids absolutely loved the first one for the idea and atmosphere. Hoping this one is even better! Can’t wait to try this out! 🙂 good luck pirates cove!

  • Mean momma May 27, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Unfortunately the food is not very good… The games aren’t as “little kid friendly” either. We were sadly disappointed. Hopefully as they are open longer, it will get better.

  • Big Bob May 27, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    I’m happy to see this place open again, but I must say 2 things that I hope the owner and management team will see here on this page…The pizza really sucks, there’s no flavor at all – very bland, worse than Pizza Factory in blandness, and 2, the tickets you win from scoring high points on any of the games is totaly jipped, especially in comparing rivalry, Fiesta Fun Center. I took my nephews there a few days ago and while the atmosphere has it going on, even the service was okay, but as far as everythig else, I was very disappointed.

  • Jade May 27, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    I’m still not satisfied, I have to agree with Big Bob. Your business has got to change its recipe and allow more tickets to dipense from the games when winning, period. No offense, I hope your business improves and makes it, but it’s time we see a Chuck E. Cheese come into town!

  • Melissa June 22, 2013 at 2:32 pm

    My family has been to Pirate Cove 3 times since it has opened. The pizza is soooo
    good! My family has eaten at a lot of pizza places to compare
    it to. Just try it to see for yourself.

  • tyler June 22, 2013 at 6:04 pm

    Anyone who says the food is good must be an owner. The food is horrible and the arcade is a joke. Our waitress did a cgood job but it could not make up for the slop they call food.

  • Murat June 23, 2013 at 11:48 am

    The stench of inevitable failure is strong here.

  • Max June 30, 2013 at 2:23 am

    Whoever posts here saying the food is horrible is a competitor with a failing pizza business in town, bella marias Maybe? I know they tried doing it with Russo’s pizza, and if you want horrible bland pizza go to bella marias…. yuck! The food here is pretty damn good in comparison to other pizza places and all i hear is good things about it from REAL customers…. Plus the owner is not in it for profit but to bring something fun to st george and different which we need! So keep your nasty comments to yourselves please, cuz I doubt some of you have even gone to eat there, like I said, probably Bella Maria owners.. ( :

    • Ken June 30, 2013 at 10:02 am

      Max I see you can’t stand that everyone is entitled to their opinion! Why should people keep their comments to themselves as you didn’t keep yours to yourself? If the owner isn’t in business to make money they he must be so rich that he doesn’t need any more money!

    • Murat June 30, 2013 at 11:33 am

      I call for an annual St. George-area pizza competition to settle these shenanigans once and for all (until next year).

  • mike April 30, 2014 at 11:07 pm

    This place is the worst restaurant I have ever been to. I was very disappointed with the way everyone treated me. The owners must be brain dead. I will never go here again.
