In no particular order:

Brixx – Brixx is originally from Petaluma and just expanded into Cotati right next to the Tradewinds. As a bonus you can now order food from Brixx while in the Tradewinds! This is a slight variation on the standard pizzeria with a bigger menu featuring a wider selection of appetizers, sandos and salads. There's plenty of seating along with a nice bar as well as pizza! They have a lot to choose from in either 8” or 12” with prices on the 12” from $15.95 to $16.95.
Mary’s Pizza Shack – A Sonoma County favorite, the shack is much more than just pizza these days. With a nice patio, full bar, happy hour, online ordering and room for parties; Mary’s has it all. The menu features kids’ selections, soups & salads, pasta, sandwiches and pizza. Most of the large (16”) pies go for $22-$23.
Straw Hat – This is your classic California Pizza franchise. The Rohnert Park Hat has been an after-game staple for many for years. They have plenty of room for parties, video games, a big TV, decent pizza at a good price and sandwiches. A large (15”) specialty pizza runs $21.99.
– A new entry to the Rohnert Park scene, Season’s opened back in February and this will be its first foray into the fall. Season's has everything a sports bar should — ample space, great TV coverage, an amazing pie and a bar with lots of beer on tap. The menu is nice with a lot of selections for pizza (including gluten free), salads and some tasty sandwiches. There's also daily specials and happy hour. The 12” pizza runs about $13-$15 depending on which specialty you select.
Round Table Pizza – The Rohnert Park franchise has been living in the Safeway shopping center for years. Even though each franchise is individually owned, most Round Tables are about the same. Decent sized interior space, soda and beer on tap, video games, pizza and a salad bar. Great for groups and party size fun. The 16” extra large runs about $26 for most specialty pies but keep an eye our for $4 coupons.
Chuck E Cheese – Where a kid can be a kid. Really this spot is for party time only. As most parents will attest you go visit the Chuck to entertain your kids, not to enjoy high quality pizza. They have tons of games and kid play areas. The food and drink options are pretty basic.
Honorable Mentions – We also have a Domino’s Pizza, Little Caesar’s, and a Papa Murphy’s in Rohnert Park and Cotati. It is mostly just a delivery or pick-up option for these locations so they are not including as in-depth as our other entrants.
