Venice Ale House is right off the Boardwalk, serving lunch, dinner, and lots of beer on tap - it could easily be a sticky, overpriced tourist trap. But, maybe because it’s slightly further down the Boardwalk and most tourists have already settled on the place they’re going to spill their beer on the floor, it’s actually a relaxed spot for day and early-evening drinking (it’s only open till midnight on weekends, and 9pm weekdays). The food menu is weirdly health-focused, but the beer is great, it’s easy to find a seat, and you’re right on the beach.
