We found this place on Trip Advisor and, as always, the reviews steered us right! I had the best fish and chips ever, the wait staff was very friendly, and who can beat eating right on the water?! Loved the cute, beachy decor!

Rocca’s Surf Shack is locally owned and operated by Todd Collins and his family. Rocca’s Surf Shack is a surfer-themed, waterfront restaurant offering a spectacular view of the bay and Morro Rock. We specialize in fresh seafood, great burgers, refreshing salads, and most of all fun.Our killer fish tacos are out of this world and our famous Surfers Combo offers the best of both worlds–two pieces of our hand-dipped beer battered fish with our house made fresh potato chips along with our fresh and creamy clam chowder served in a fresh baked sourdough bread bowl.
