    Continental

    Continental located in the Pier Shops at Caesars is a Stephen Starr restaurant with the description of the cuisine referred to as “Eclectic Global.” With a menu varying from brunch, lunch and dinner with a variety of options for all palettes. Continental is easily one of the most versatile restaurants in the Pier and along the boardwalk alone. With dishes as low as $9 and at the most $22 with an “upscale casual” attire it’s a great choice for a nice night out without having to break the bank. With an equally as affordable drink menu and amazing happy hour specials Continental is a fan favorite in Atlantic City.

    VUE

    The VUE located on the 23rd floor of The Claridge a Raddison hotel is Atlantic City’s newest hidden gem. Barely a year old The Vue provides not only great drinks and food but an atmosphere to match. With small appetizer like plates not reaching over $14 and a happy hour four days a week with $5 drink specials there’s no better place to watch the sunset than this rooftop bar. Completed with cabanas and fire pits and a beautiful indoor bar if you haven’t checked out The Vue yet be sure to do so!

    Landshark

    Landshark is a great choice when in Atlantic City because unlike a lot of places it provides options. Want to sit inside and enjoy fried food and cold drinks? Thats fine! Wanna sit on a deck with a view of the water and the smell of the ocean breeze? You can do that too! Or did you wanna sit on the beach with a frozen drink in your hand while a DJ plays the songs of the summer? This too is an option. Landshark is a good time whether you’re looking to get a quick bite, or lounge all day and enjoy the sun.

    Wonder Bar

    Wonder Bar is as local as it gets, with a great variety of delicious bar foods, the best service and amazing football sunday deals throughout the season. With yet another beautiful bay view and an amazing place to watch the sunset Wonder Bar is another fan favorite all year around. With indoor and outdoor options no matter the season Wonder Bar is a great go to especially if you want to stay in the local scene and avoid long waits and casino parking garage fees! Check out Wonder Bar on Sunset Ave!

    The Deck

    The Deck located on the marina of The Golden Nugget is the definition of serenity in Atlantic City. Getting dinner under the lights while watching the sun set on the marina is a way to make you feel like you’re on a tropical island and maybe not Atlantic City, NJ. The deck always provides good food, a good time, and really good live music so if you haven’t been yet, you need to get on this little piece of local paradise!

    Angelos Fairmount Tavern

    Angelos Fairmount Tavern is easily the best, and most affordable Italian Gourmet in Atlantic City. With a cozy atmosphere and welcoming staff you can’t help but feel like you’re home eating your parents home cooked food when you’re at Angelos! With all their small plates varying from $8-$10 and none of their dinner plates exceeding $25 at most if you’re looking for a nice dinner night without sitting on the water or on a beach this is definitely a great choice!
