Best Places to Eat and Drink in Rockaway
A stay in Rockaway Beach is made even better when you make time to try some of the great local, family-owned restaurants that line this picturesque part of the Pacific Coast Highway. Rockaway is a small and charming beach town, and offers visitors an impressive food scene, especially for its size. We have put together a list of local favorites for you to consider the next time you book a Meredith Lodging Rockaway vacation rental. Check out our list of some of the best places to eat and drink in Rockaway:
Begin your morning with a strong cup of coffee and a delicious, freshly baked pastry (savory and sweet options!) from this local favorite. Make sure and try their Sand Dollar Hand Pie!
Prefer to grab and go for your adventure-filled day? Head to R&R Espresso drive-thru where you can pick up a great cup of coffee, baked goods, and other breakfast/lunch items.
Located on a dock at Rockaway Beach, this old-fashioned smokehouse serves fresh seafood in a no-frills atmosphere. Make sure to order the crab melt, or a bowl of their award-winning clam chowder. Outdoor seating is dog friendly.
