Located within stumbling distance of the beach, this rustic honky-tonk has been kicking since 1941. The vibe is fisherman’s-shack-meets-Midwestern-cabin: Note the imposing moose head at the entrance, complemented by dusty nautical knickknacks and a roaring fire. Daily specials range from mini burritos to DIY grilled cheese, and the nightly entertainment might be bluegrass bands, punk karaoke or a “hillbilly burlesque” revue. It’s not unusual to see Saturday night’s revelers back at the bar on Sunday afternoon, nursing their hangovers over bacon Bloody Marys.
