The best option of all is to come by boat — since The Wharf has its own landing dock. Operators of fishing boats, kayaks, jet skis and yachts are welcome to dock and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Boaters from all over the area call this restaurant a favorite destination. Last summer, writers and photographers from the New York Times visited Rockaway Park and discovered The Wharf. They spoke to diners at the restaurant, who said that it's "a beautiful place to eat, watch the lovely sunset, have a couple of drinks … The staff is wonderful, the food is good. It's like a little mini-vacation." Others who visit the establishment comment that "there's no other place quite like it"
