Restaurants On The Boardwalk

A short review of the most important restaurants you will find on the Boardwalk. You will find on certain older maps the restaurant Spoodles still, but that one has gone and was replaced by the award winning kitchen from Iron Chef Cat Cora: Kouzzina. It is a Mediterranean inspired Greek cuisine, with hints to the American and international tourist and in a nutshell you can say it is not expensive, very wide range of dishes and a lot of fun. It comes recommended, for sure.

Another restaurant that is high on our list of exquisite eating places, a somewhat higher price range but well worth it, is the Flying Fish. On a corner with lots of windows and views, the dress code here would be casual or business casual, but I have seen some shorts walking around here as well. Just make sure you don’t feel embarrassed sitting next to a table with guys in suits. Fish dishes here are highly praised by anyone we have met there and elsewhere.

Third known restaurant is the Big River Grille and Brewing Works. Located on the other end of the Boardwalk, near Jelly Rolls (piano bar) and the Swan and Dolphin hotels, it is a cool place to hang out and have dinner outside even. Check it out.
