With fish selections as varied as baked stuffed haddock and the Boston Big Boy—a fried-fish sandwich layered with coleslaw, french fries, and cheese—seafood certainly earned its place in this restaurant's name. But maybe an even bigger presence than the Big Boy are the restaurant's signature roast-beef sandwiches, which are piled high with medium-rare roast beef sliced to order. Dinner entrees include top sirloin and 1.5-pound Maine lobster, though seafood is also a mainstay in the restaurant's breakfast dishes like crab-meat benedicts.

Sandbar Sports Grill boasts an extensive menu fit for castaways in an eclectic beachfront bistro.

House specialty fish tacos ($3.99) please lighter eaters, and turf-friendly dishes such as the taco burger, served with sour cream, pico de gallo, guacamole, and melted cheese ($10.99), suit those still establishing their sea legs. Libation-seekers can plant their tiny umbrellas in a sandbar hurricane ($4–$9) in five categories of intensity.

Stretching itself across an 800-foot pier and inside five distinct restaurants, the 20th Annual Rockin' the Dock New Year's Eve Party welcomes revelers of all ages to its festive environs.

Slow & Low Bar-B-Que's master grillers heed the restaurant's apropos moniker, slow-cooking a menu of dry-rubbed meats over diminished hickory flames. Battered and fried pickle chips display cucumbers' progressive counterculture as they dip into dill horseradish sauce ($4.75), and a half rack of individually cut and brushed St. Louis–style ribs ($12.50). Cleaner hands can grip Joel's Crazy pork sandwich, packed with hand-pulled pork and slathered in a signature white sauce ($7.95), or pop morsels of deep-fried Malibu coconut shrimp into anticipatory mouths ($13.95). The restaurant's homemade desserts combat Candy Land's monopolistic sweetsarchy with sugary bites including slices of fresh homemade cheesecake ($4.95).

The cuisine crafters at Papa Vito's Italian Restaurant tirelessly hand-toss pizzas and dish out a menu of traditional Italian fare until 1:30 a.m. every day. Herbivores nosh on garden goods with a Gourmet Vegetarian pizza ($18.50 for 16"), dappled with fresh veggies and white sauce, while meat-seeking mouths and experimenting stegosaurs feast on the Old School Stuffed pizza ($19.95 for 16") filled with mozzarella, mushrooms, beef, and pepperoni. An order of Papa Vito's wings ($6.99 for 12) prompts duets, quartets, or sextuplets to slather tongues in spicy, barbecue, or garlic sauce, accompanied by a wading pool of ranch or blue-cheese dressing. While noshing and practicing for upcoming fractions quizzes glaze gullets with a glass of house wine ($3.75), draft or bottled beer ($3), or an imported beer ($3.50).
