What an unexpected delight! Moonraker has huge ocean-front windows to enjoy the magnificent view; we’ve been here before and this year it was even better! We couldn’t believe what we saw- humpback whales cruising the beach! The whales were easy to spot, just look offshore where the birds are. You’ll see the whales come up for air, as close as... More

Came down from Sacramento without the 3 kids for my birthday and ate at the Moonraker at the recommendation of a friend. Food was excellent. Service was above average. Ocean sunset view and good wine made for an excellent evening.

Awesome, it was foggy but still could see the waves, seals, pelicans and other sea birds, no whales this day but dolphins earlier in the day! Most all tables have a good ocean view. Cocktails good, our dinner very good. The menu had a good selection. Lots of sea food but if you aren't a fan of fish they have... More

Dropping a few bills first thing in the morning is protocol for this pricey dining establishment, but, if it's not an everyday practice, then most won't mind especially if you're a connoisseur of great food. My recommendation would be to try the crab benedict. It's a taste sensation like you've never experienced.

We had a wonderful view, and it looked like most tables have a good view of Rockaway beach. We chose this restaurant for lunch as they have several choices for gluten free, and I wasn't disappointed. I had the fish tacos which were good. The service was ok but there is definite room for improvement; both the host and server... More

This place has a beautiful View of Rockaway beach from the second floor. Really good breakfast! I haven't ate there for lunch or dinner. But a really nice place.

The moon racker has once again become the best restaurant in town. The food is fabulous and the view wonderful. The wait staff is professional. And if you would like a different table they will accomodate you. Can be busy so I would suggest a reservation request a booth and bring sunglasses. This has become a family favorite for us... More
