New England–style fresh seafood items, such as smoked fish dip and lobster rolls, accompany blackened ribeye and gorgonzola chicken pasta to tables at Longboards. Inside, hanging longboards and flat-screen televisions unite in their skinniness to forge a laid-back yet entertaining setting, similar to a monk's cabin placed in the middle of a red-light district. Behind the longboard-shaped bar, a libation wizard concocts house-made juice-infused cocktails and doles out craft brews to supplement a list of 16 bottled beers such as Avery White Rascal and Stone IPA. Porters, pilsners, IPAs, and ciders further solidify the eatery's credibility as a haven for hops.
Since no surfing-styled venue would be complete without an alfresco component, Longboards also maintains an outdoor patio replete with a mini wooden walkway and a decorated Airstream. Trees, lights strung overhead, and colorful longboard murals ensconce patio denizens in an atmosphere utterly bereft of dullness.
