Where to Eat at Rockaway Beach

@sosjtb Thanks for the NYC Beach Bus tip! I know Manhattanites are left without that option since Rockabus stopped running, but Brooklyn beachgoers are lucky to have the easy transportation.

I didn't encounter the whole fried perch—special only, I guess—but it does seem like they have been serving a fried fish sandwich/torta as a regular menu item this summer.
