Description: 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.

“I'm definitely coming back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

I had a pleasant experience at this restaurant, with the happy beach-like music...everyone else in the restaurant seemed to enjoy it as well. The service staff was friendly. The food was amazingg! This, as well as the atmosphere, are the main reasons I'd come back and recommend the restaurant to other visiting people.

“Fantastic seafood, great ambiance.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

Roccas in Morro Bay CA is the best seafood in town. Great atmosphere, fun decor, bright, great service. For a fast food restaurant everything is homemade , so it takes a few minutes longer but well worth the wait. we had the shrimp tacos which were great and the coconut shrimp. they were the best we have ever had, fresh, huge, and tender, yummy. the potato chips are homemade and so delicious. and the prices are great.. It overlooks the pier and has a little grassy area right out the window for the kids to play. Highly recommend this restaurant. Can't wait to go back.

“Fun and tasty treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Stopped by this small spot on 1-7-12, a Saturday evening about 6. Very friendly staff. I had fish and chips with a bread bowl of clam chowder on an $8 coupon. My partner had shrimp and chips for $11. Given a choice fries or their homemade potato chips. Tried the chips and they were great. Both fish and shrimp were done to perfection; not greasy or over breaded.
Very nice seating with lots of windows for viewing the bay. The decor is California surf mode and very cheery. Good old surf music, not too loud, in the background. They use real tableware, not plastic. Very family oriented.

“Italian fastfood not as its best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

We've chosen this restaurant according to the great review on trip advisor. Unfortunately, the food didn't met our expectations at all. The spaghetti were ok, but drowned in an average marinara sauce and the meatballs were tasteless and watery. The garlic bread was convenience food style... The meal was served with plastic cutlery. The service was friendly and the prices moderate, but overall a disappointment for every European tourist looking for good italian food!

“Best food on the embaradero”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

We have a family reunion every year in Morro Bay. This year we found Rocca's and we ate there at least five out of the 7 days. The food is probably about the best I have had in a long time. Everything is fresh and the sauce is to die for. It is a family friendly resturant and the staff is friendly and fun. Rocca's we will be back next year.....
