Surf Burger’s chefs grill a menu of chicken, tilapia, and beef dishes fresh to order, and slather their fire-licked exteriors in the house secret sauce. The Big Kahuna hoists a 2/3-pound patty onto a kaiser roll sturdy enough to support layers of american cheese and standard burger fixings. Like an understudy in a kitchen-themed Broadway play, a grilled chicken breast can sub in for beef on the Surf burger stage, and the Surf Catch Creation reels in grilled tilapia, grilled onions, and bell peppers on a kaiser roll. Vegetarian taste buds indulge in the Eco burger, a black-bean patty smothered in swiss cheese. Chefs flank all burgers with baskets of Idaho russet potatoes, sliced to order and submerged in a sizzling bath of cholesterol-free canola oil. As patrons sip soft drinks, wine, or draft glasses of Blue Moon or Dos XX, their eyes gaze upon a tropical pastiche of surf movies, local artwork, and waiters practicing their hang ten techniques on dining-room tables.
Though Surf Burger features discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
Dave Bohannon had a simple idea for a restaurant: he wanted to open one by the water and craft a concise menu of uncomplicated, but immaculately prepared dishes. With this vision in mind, he and his wife Alice opened Surf Burger. She honed its decor with help from local artists, creating an interior where old beach-themed paintings line the walls and surf movies play against a soundtrack of island music. Not only do the couple and their children leave their mark on the eatery’s menu and interior decor, but on its guests, as well. They often venture from their respective posts to eat, chat, and get matching tattoos with diners, forging a sense of community and transforming one-time visitors into loyal regulars.
They bolster this friendly, low-key atmosphere with casual dishes such as burgers, chili dogs, and fish tacos, as well as sweet-potato fries and quarter-pound Cajun sausages inspired by down-home southern recipes. At a full-service bar, servers pour draft beers and blend frosty tropical cocktails, which arrive before customers seated in the beachy dining room or on the outdoor, dog-friendly deck.
