The restaurant has a casual surf design on the interior with a beachside view outdoors. Despite the low-key design, 3.14 has an upbeat atmosphere. Festive live music, movie nights, car shows, and accommodating staff all help to make sure you are well fed and entertained during your visit.

Pizza Time!

Other interesting picks include the Teriyaki with grilled chicken, the White Sands with ricotta, spinach and broccoli, and the Gulf Coast with pesto, shrimp and calamari. You can customize your pizza too by adding toppings.

Something really cool about Pi is that the chefs have their own signature dishes, like the taco pizza. Be sure to check their social media for updates or ask on-site if they’re serving anything special.
