Eating in Nahant

I was hoping someone could recommend places to eat in or super close to Nahant. We are looking for a good place (nothing fancy - a relaxed, casual setting is preferred, but not a subshop!) to eat before heading to an evening event in Nahant. Also, if you have breakfast place recommendations, that would be great too. Thanks in advance!

  1. I think you'll be hard pressed to fine something in Nahant. Why not the recently reviewed Blue Ox in Lynn:

      Hmm. I may have to give the Ox a try, but the prices look a little high for what downtown Lynn can probably support.

    2. Floating Rock in Revere or Mittapheap in Lynn are very good and casual

      1. I'm a big fan of the Antique table on the Lynn Swampscott line, charming little place and the food is excellent.
        You can also print out a coupon for 5% off from the website

        1. How about Red Rock Bistro in Swampscott, right on the beach down the road from Nahant.

            not really a favorite here, seems to have meh food and service issues.

              Their food is just ok but the view is wonderful! I've eaten worse.

          2. Nahant has next to nothing for restaurants. The Tides is ok for a drink and maybe a simple dish, but I'd go someplace in Lynn (Monte's, Hayward's, Porthole, Mildred's, Antique Table, Blue Ox, etc.).
