    As they say, I'm sure others will weigh-in but here's my personal favorite.
    I believe it will fit all your requirements;
    Ron's Landing - http://www.ronslanding.com/

        I third Ron's. Although it was better when Ron was in the kitchen, it is still very good and sounds exactly what you are looking for.

      the ashworth by the sea is good. you can walk to all the stores, arcades, and restaurants as the boardwalk is approx 1/4 mile long. ate at ron;s landing last year. was great. their is also a clam shack called "Jack's". If you want to drive back inot seabrook, Browne's seafood is a fun place to go.

        Great, thank you everyone, looks like Ron's it is. How far of a walk is it form the ballroom? Any specific recommendations from the menu? Thanks

          Might be about a 10-minute walk from Ron's to the Casino Ballroom. My recommendations are anything from the "Signatures" section of the menu (classics they have served over the years - although many of my faves were not retained). The specials are always great - and they serve an excellent martini.

            I can only echo RandyL's recs. I usually order off the specials or "Signatures" and being a martini drinker I can testify that theirs is done right. Two other things that I always order are theirs Maryland Crabcakes and Key Lime pie. Both are as authentic as you'll find in N.E. Being anal-retentive, I Mapquested the distance from the Casino to Ron's; it's 9/10ths of a mile. Also, if you'd like the panoramic view from the upstairs dining room you can request it but they will only try to accommodate with out guarantee. However, earlier hours reservations stand a better chance of that happening.

            All the best & enjoy,

            If you're open to Chinese, I would hit up the Ocean Wok (http://www.oceanwok.com/) over by the bridge to Seabrook, about a 10 minute walk from the Casino.

            I would also recommend the La Bec Rouge, for more traditional American food (with a decent sized menu (http://www.lebecrouge.com/). This is about a five minute walk to the Casino and they have a really nice deck overlooking the beach, if you don't mind the smokers).

            Then again, if you're in Hampton Beach then why not eat on the Boardwalk??? There's a pizza/wrap/etc place past the McD's (near Blink's) that serves great pizza and wraps, along with other boardwalk items and is only a 3 minute walk from the Casino. The only downside is that there isn't any seating so you need to either find a beach bench or eat while walking.

            Good luck! Wish I was back on the strip!
