NYCReview

Located on Jamaica Bay, The Wharf is a cash-only restaurant with a huge outdoor patio that’s perfect for brunch with the family or a drink at the bar. The menu is made up of the classics—benedicts at breakfast, burgers and the like—as well as some seafood specials like fish and chips and a pretty sizable lobster roll. The ideal place to sit with a group is on the covered portion of the deck that extends even further out into the water, but the shaded outdoor bar area is where you come for a long, leisurely drink with yourself or one other person. It’s the low-key, but lively corner of the restaurant, full of friendly regulars, where you can grab a frozen Arnold Palmer cocktail and watch the ferry come in against the backdrop of Brooklyn.

Tacoway Beach

What was once called Rockaway Taco is now called Tacoway Beach. The good news? The fish tacos are still the best in town.
