“Rockaway - Go with correct expectation”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Rockaway is a great beachside bar/restaurant. Frenchy's does a great job with his menu, lots of fresh seafood, from Frenchy's own fleet. But remember this is a bar at the beach, so it's sandy, open to elements, and very popular. It's fine for kids during the day and early evening but turns towards dancing and the party crowd as the evening goes on. Live music, good drinks, lots of beer selection (not so much on wine).

Sunsets are spectacular as are the "ritas". I bring friends there for sunset cocktails and late evening dancing at the beach!

“Frenchy's”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Love Frenchy's, you can enjoy dinners at sunset or just go and have a good time with friends. I had the grouper sandwich (grilled) it was excellent.

“A Beachfront Dandy”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great weather and beach views were the order of the day. Only the food topped it. This place is know for their Grouper so we had to order the sandwiches. I ordered the large Buffalo style with a side of fries and slaw. And my wife ordered the regular with chips and slaw. Both were delicious. A Blue Moon and a glass of wine and we were in Seventh Heaven. We can't wait to go back.

“Location and atmosphere buys favor with food quality”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

The location us awesome, drinks on the beach, what a view. If course it's crowded but you should do it at least for a couple of appetizers. Buffalo shrimp were great. Conch fritters need to be homemade, no excuse here. These were all frozen and had little to no conch. Owners, charge a couple of bucks more, make them yourselves, add more conch. If you've been to Key West, the Bahamas it just Tarks in Hollywood Florida, these will disappoint. Shrimp pasta was tasty, grouper sand which was ok, supposed to be blackened but had little flavor and was too thin.service is fine, but again, location sells it.
