“Great old school beach bar. There's no place quite like it. Packed during the weekend with partiers old and young. I like the Bloody Mary. The food is surprisingly good too. Bands in the afternoon and night. Check the website.”

Seafood Restaurant

“Super restaurants for seafood and oysters, Best happy hour in town BEST to get there early. It is not uncommon for a line to start forming a half hour before opening. Happy hour is 3- 5pm . Oysters are always fresh and ice cold. Drink specials are great and their happy hour specials are generous portions of food beyond what you would expect for the price.”

Restaurant
“This place is a bit tough to find, and the parking situation is bad (park across the street and walk), but the beer is sooooo worth it. The menu offers a nice eclectic selection of Asian, American, and comfort foods to pair with the beer as well. In the winter time, be sure to get the corner table by the wood stove, and try a 12% ABV monster.”
