this place is like a secret- there's no signs. I was taken there by a friend and I have taken many friends there myself. The beer selction is above average. But the main thing I go to rockaways for is the burger. Their burgers are that of legend. If you are lucky enough to find rockaways you best be stoppin there cause it's one of those places you won't soon forget. The prices are very reasonable and the foodis great. The bartenders are friendly. In addition to the burgers they have a chicken salad melt that is out of this world.

Not really sure why this place is in here but when I was on my way out of town I decided to see where it was and do a drive by. Not really much of a beer place as I stopped inside. Nice place to grab lunch I will give it that, but the most intresting tap handle I could see was rogue and that was a loaner. A bit of the BMC staring at me. Nice atmosphere but it really did not come across as the type of place I would really want to hang out at for too terribly long. Overall a decent place but dont stop in here looking for beer, you will be dissapointed.

The name sounds like a health club but it is one of my favorite watering holes when I visit the capital city. Located on Rosewood Drive just a short drive from downtown or the football stadium/fairgrounds. Real popular with the college crowd. One of the best selections of bottled and draft beers in the state with well over 100 beers from all over the world, just remember that the ABV cap in SC is currently 6%(hopefully not for long). Their specialtiy is the pimento cheese burger which is to die for. Onion rings are also top notch and for you oyster lovers, they have them on the half shell and plenty of them. Parking can be a problem so get there early. Service is hit or miss.

Note: President Bush visited Rockaway during his 2004 campaign
