Beachside eateries allow visitors to enjoy a meal while making sure toddlers don't spring hermit-crab traps. Snack in sight of crustacean snares with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of casual seafood and non-alcoholic drinks at Lime Rickey's Beach Food in Marblehead.
Alongside the sandy shores of Devereux Beach, Lime Rickey's grill masters pacify hunger pangs with a seafood-centric menu overflowing with sandwiches and entree plates. Shellfish fans savor the lobster roll's succulent chunks of fresh Atlantic lobster resting inside the crusty-bread chrysalis, accompanied by a bag of potato chips ($16.95). Buffet tongues with deep-fried dishes such as the fish 'n' chips ($12.95) and the fried clam-strip plate ($13.95), or appease circular cravings with nests of onion rings ($4.50). A variety of classic sandwiches, salads, and wraps comfort lonely taste buds or grant nostalgic last meals to wisdom teeth awaiting retirement.
Visitors can share sips of the signature lime rickey, made with freshly squeezed citrus juice accented with a wealth of fruit flavors such as cherry, coconut, orange, and raspberry ($3.25). A wide wraparound deck welcomes outdoor diners to enjoy a side of sunset views with their meal, and weekend visitors can season bites with live music at no extra cost.
