Easy eating near the beach

You're sticky and salty after a day at the beach. Part of you wants to go home and shower before dinner; the other part just wants to eat.


You and the family won't have to change out of your swimsuits or shake sand from your flip-flops at any these casual outdoor spots. Best of all, they're either right at the beach or a short drive away.
