Good Cocoa Beach restaurants for a bachelor party dinner?

Howdy, folks. I'm an Orlando resident and a groomsman in an upcoming wedding. That means I have to help plan the bachelor party, which so far consists of renting a bus and taking about 20 guys to Cocoa Beach for barhopping and a few strip clubs before heading back to Orlando. This is not my idea of a fun night out, so I figured I could at least recommend the group a good restaurant or two so we don't end up at freakin' Hooters. Obviously we wouldn't want anything fancy, and nothing too expensive. Anything too ethnic or exotic is out. The groom keeps kosher and isn't a huge fan of pizza. Is there a sports bar with above-average food, anything a cut above your usual Ale House or Chili's or (eurgh) Hooters, ideally somewhat close to the beach area with bars and strip clubs? We're all in our late 20s and early 30s, for what it's worth, and we'd all be well behaved, even when drunk. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Not a direct answer,but here is a good working list of local restaurants.

    South of you at the Pineda Causeway and A1A,is a strip center with one of the longest running strip clubs,a large sports bar,and Bizzaro's Pizza and full Italian restaurant.

    Arguably the best pizza on the east coast and where many Orlandians drive to.

    The crowd will range from Italian speakers,surfers,college,military,etc.

    From there ,north to downtown Cocoa beach, will be the district of clubs you are seeking.

    Most is in the County-not much restrictions.LOL


    Good luck.

    1. Coconuts On The Beach is right up your alley. Pretty basic beach menu, not expensive, and used to partiers of all stripes. Right on the beach, hence the name, at the end of Minuteman Causeway in the heart of Cocoa Beach.
