By FAR, my favorite place to go.. it can be a bit pricey, but very worth it if you are in a swimsuit.. One of the only "On the beach bars" with take out orders, to outdoor topside bar to tables facing the ocean.. The table service isn't my favorite, it really caters to tourists and LOUD families. The food is very good, they have really good happy hour and weekend specials as well.

This is the first place we go to when we get into town. A nice lunch and a couple cocktails right on the beach to get you in the beach mood and start your trip off right!!

Always busy. Parking often a problem. Food is good, bar is busy. Noisy. Under 30s will love it, others bring your earplugs. Not good for children

Good seafood restaurant, right on the beach. Located at the east end of the beach parking lot, about 7 blocks from Pelican's Elbow.

I've had many meals here, and it is a great place to stop in for drinks or a quick meal. From the Crescent unit, it is about a mile up the beach and a great place to stop-in after walking/jogging/running the beach.

Pompano's is a place that I frequently visit every time I stay. Do not miss the Reggae Rolls and, for those that enjoy an adult beverage, take my word for it, the Big Ed's Special is a must! Skip the drive and just walk 1.5 miles West from the beach at the Whale's Tail.

I love to go to the beach and not worry about lunch or dinner. Pompano Joe is an ocean front restaurant and you can eat in your bathing suits!
