    So many great veggie burger options (green lentil, portobello mushroom, black bean) and you can mix and match toppings, sauces and breads. Great options for vegetarians and vegans alike.

    For the most fun dive-bar experience, you'll have to join the perfect blend of hilarious tourists & hilarious locals at Finn McCool's on Main. Really good bad cover music. Know what we mean?

    This pub offers $2 draft beers for Happy Hour, every Mon-Fri until 8pm. Right by the beach, you can grab a drink after a day in the sun, and try some of the cheap food specials. Read more

    6 Nations Rugby Championship will be shown here. Tradition is important to this pub, the bar was shipped over from Dublin and they host live traditional Irish music performances. Brunch is 12-4pm.

    The side dish of Seasonal Roasted Vegetables are yummy. Ask for them with a side of Ranch Dressing.

    Recommend fish and chips, boxties, lux on parsnip pancakes. Chocolate box is a good desert, unexpected in a pub. Live music is awesome.
