    I'm a big fan of Starving Artist. NOT fancy, but you can sit outdoors fully under cover (a roof over the big deck) or inside in A/C. Sandwiches, salads, etc. VERY casual, very beach. Bonus: the same owners have Day's Ice Cream, which is right there--far better than Nagle's, imo!

    For something fancier, I have friends who like Seagrass, but I've never been.

        I highly recommend Seagrass- I have been there many times for both lunch and dinner. I love the Asian Tuna salad and the warm calamari salad and they usually have scallops or shrimp over salad- the scallops are amazing. They also have inside and outdoor dining and an extremely wonderful wait staff. Definitely my recommendation.

      +1 for Seagrass. Nothing mindblowinlgly creative, but consistently good w/ top quality seafood.
