The Beach House Restaurant is located about five miles south of the causeway on the Boulevard. . We stopped in early in the season in 2017 and had a fantastic meal. It is a BYOB so bring a bottle. Check out their early bird specials. You beat the rush and get a good deal.
We stopped in for an early lunch. They have a great selection of sandwiches along with salads, wraps, tacos and more.
The Delaware Avenue Oyster House and bar has a great selection of fresh shellfish.
Sept 2019 – I stopped in for a quick bite at the Daddy O Restaurant. I’ve passed by the place hundreds of times. I had heard mythical stories about the cost to eat there. A quick check of the menu showed that you could get a Daddy O burger for $18. Ok, that is a little high for a burger but not outrageous.
We visited the California Grill for some takeout. We’ve eaten on their patio before. The food is mostly Burgers, wraps, hoagies and steaks. The food and service have always been good.
