This Rocket sit right across from the main beach. The view is great and the food very good as usual. The server was attentive and kept our drinks full. They have the best tasting turkey burgers around. Great place for lunch.

To be fair, we only had coffee. The service and atmosphere were good. The coffee, as was explained, was just your ordinary everyday brew, but it was good.

Johnny Rockets always serves up a good burger. This one has a unique location. It's always busy yet the staff never seems harassed. They provide very good service.
