Nestled on a land bridge sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Weir River, Barefoot Bob's Beach Grill channels the vibes radiating from Nantasket Beach across the street to surround patrons with tiki-bar style. In a bamboo-lined dining room, numerous high-definition televisions cast a glow on waiters toting seafood samplers, where broiled fresh haddock and scallops buddy up to shrimp before stealing its lunch money, as well as surf 'n' turf combos with Black Angus steak tips crowned by three jumbo stuffed shrimp. Thin-crust pizzas customized to please taste buds comprise a shareable lunch, whereas sandwiches and wraps, such as the north carolina pulled pork with jalapeño-jack cheese and cider-vinegar-infused barbecue sauce, convince hands to never let go. In warmer months, an outdoor patio offers ample opportunity for palm-shaded alfresco dining and tossing table scraps to hungry-looking lifeguards across the street.
Sea Dog Steak & Ale's menu catalogs hearty pub food and a deep well of beer. Every item on the menu pairs almost perfectly with one of the pub's 10 locally crafted brews served on tap, whether it's the milky Sea Dog Stout and the marinated grilled steak tips, the malty Winter Ale to wash down the chorizo-crusted haddock, or the crisp flavor of the Raspberry Wheat Ale as a palate cleanser after dinner. Sea Dog's chefs also grill 8-ounce filets mignons, which are as heavy as Willy Wonka minus his candy weight. The patties of seven specialty burgers blend ground beef, short rib, chuck, and brisket, all piled with toppings ranging from balsamic-marinated onions to root-beer barbecue sauce.
The alehouse's nightly crowd adds to the convivial ambiance of the pub by sharing drinks on its outdoor patio or in its rustic wood-paneled, chocolate- and almond-colored dining room. Frequent visitors can join the wine or mug clubs, which toss in benefits such as personalized mugs, T-shirts, and a spiritual connection with America's most famous beer drinker: Benjamin Franlin, the inventor of both mugs and T-shirts.

One of South Shore Living's "10 Influential People You Should Know" in 2010, Jimmy Liang evenly divides his time among his five Boston-area restaurants.

Diners also entertain one another during karaoke sessions that go until 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday and Saturday night.
Fowler House Cafe serves casual pub food amidst rustic tavern elegance, surrounding diners in high-backed hardwood booths, exposed brick walls, and high wood paneling. Staffers work to maintain its neighborhood sports-bar atmosphere, whether pouring pints at a central wood-topped bar or balancing plates of pub grub crafted in house from scratch. In the kitchen, chefs dress platters of buffalo tenders and wings in varying degrees of hot sauce, marinate black-Angus steak tips, and fry native scrod. Creative types can unleash their free will onto pizzas, which readily receive customization with more than 20 toppings such as pineapple, eggplant, and sausage. Diners can bite into a cheesy slice and view the vigorous clapping of proud coaches on high-definition TVs perched throughout the space.
