To celebrate a couple of summer birthdays we'd like to spend a few hours at the beach and then walk to a nearby restaurant where we can relax (not take-out) for casual food and drinks. The only 2 spots in easy driving distance to Boston that I can think of are Nantasket and Revere.
Last year we went to Schooner's on Nantasket and while the food was good it doesn't really have that party type of atmosphere we're looking for. Barefoot Bob's is fun but I'm not sure it has the quality of food we're looking for. We don't need drop dead deliciousness-a solid B+ is fine by me!
Are we asking for too much? Should we settle for mediocre food at Barefoot Bob's or are there any other options out there for us?
