At this scenic summery spot, you can sit at an umbrella table on the beach, making it possible for parents to dine while kids build sand castles. However, be it summer, winter or any time of the year, Wall’s serves a menu of popular American dishes—including a Sunday brunch buffet, as well as dinner specials Monday through Wednesday. There is also a barroom that handles the nightlife crowd, and come midnight on a Saturday, it can be a busy, boisterous place—even when there’s frost settled out on the sand.
.Hours: 12 p.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday; 12 p.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday. (Bar stays open later.) Credit cards: Accepted
