When sisters Carrol Ann and Tammy took over Roosters Daytime Cafe in spring of 2011, their aim wasn't a total overhaul of the eatery, but rather a subtle touchup. That's why the menu still offers homestyle breakfast and lunch favorites, such as chocolate chip pancakes and burgers. But that's in addition to healthier options, such as the greek omelet with spinach, tomatoes, and feta, or grilled veggie paninis. Carrol Ann and Tammy have also opened a new business under the umbrella of Roosters: Classy Cakes. Here, they craft customized cakes, pies, and other desserts.
Only a short burger's toss from the Atlantic Ocean, Locals Restaurant & Bar puts a contemporary spin on pub staples amid the glow of 15 plasma TVs.

A full bar brims with fresh oysters and clams to awaken the palate for succulent morsels of filet mignon and lobster tail on the outdoor patio. Beneath a thatched roof in the tiki bar, 30 beers flow from the tap, filling steins with a wealth of suds rivaled only by a soap baron's bank vault.
