Ocean Mist Restaurant Review

: Ocean Mist was a beach bar first, a concert hall second, and a restaurant only relatively late in its existence. Fortunately, it results in an ideal confluence of location, entertainment and dining. Show up early on a summer's day, get a table on the back deck (which literally stands over the surf), order some fish tacos and a rum drink from the outdoor bar, and relax until the band takes the stage. The menu includes the usual pub food like salads, burgers and grilled pizzas with an emphasis on Mexican cuisine, some of which nod to the sea, like crab and avocado quesadillas. As you might expect at a beach bar, the beer selection is pretty extensive. On the flip side, start the morning with a breakfast burrito or your choice of about a dozen different varieties of eggs Benedict.
