Chilli Peppers Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: Chilli Peppers is a fun, casual Southwestern-influenced eatery that will suit everyone in your party, no matter the time of day. Menus include standard fare like nachos, fish tacos and crab enchiladas, along with more unexpected offerings, such as a Cajun seafood sauté. There are plenty of appetizers, like chimichurri oysters; soups, from beef sirloin chili, New England clam chowder or the soup of the day; and salads for lighter meals. Hungry, just-off-the-beach diners will be satisfied with fajitas, quesadillas, and steamed-to-order seafood (also available late night). Little diners have their own menu of kid-size Chilli Peppers favorites. Don't miss the Saturday and Sunday brunch with a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar and the off-season Thursday regional tapas nights, which range from Irish- to Indian- to Southern-inspired.
