We have been going to the Wharf for a few years now. Happy to see it is up and running, after Sandy! Today was the 2nd time there this summer, and the 2nd time my husband ordered the lobster roll, Earlier this month we were out in Montauk, we had lunch at Gosmans Dock were he also had a lobster role. He said how much better it was at the Wharf, both times! And less expensive! The one at the Wharf is lobster, very little Mayo, very good and fresh!
It is not a fancy place, but if you are looking for a nice lunch place in Queens, to sit and relax awhile The Wharf is a good place to go! Also the waitress we had had many times is great!

A great view from a bar with shade and sun ! Our waitresses were friendly and efficient. The beers were all cold , onion rings greasy ( aren't they suppose to be ), shrimp very good. It is a BAR folks that serves food too!
We started at 3 and watched a beautiful sunset with Manhattan
in the background. Nice to see some great boat traffic. Seemed like a very local place , everybody knew somebody that knew somebody ! A fun time had by all. Also , they have dockage for about six boats.

This local restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are in Rockaway, there are few restaurants to choose from. This is a relaxed spot on the bay. The food is good and relatively inexpensive. You will feel like you are from the city, yet the view of NYC is priceless. Always a nice place for a relaxing meal.

Make no mistake, the view offerred by Wharf Bar & Grill cannot be replicated elsewhere in Queens. Unfortunately nearly every other Queens restaurant enjoys better management. On the night of our visit, they had run out of: lobster, martini glasses, non-alcoholic beer and silverware (no really). The 90 minute wait for fairly simple entrees (fish tacos where just the fish from the fish and chips wrapped in a tortilla and smothered in mayoinaisse) meant more time listening to the attrocious band. What they lacked in talent the establishment made up for sheer amplification. Being unable to talk to tablemates or enjoy screwed up drinks (gin and vodka are actually not fully interchangable) put a lot of pressure on that view of the harbor. Prices are cheap relative to NYC but then again you could stand and take in the view for free; this is the smart choice.
