Not much makes sense about Grand Tavern, but it’s still one of our favorite spots to take a break from the crowded beachside bars and restaurants - especially once you’ve hit your quota for oysters and lobster rolls. It’s in an odd location just west of Bradley Beach and has an appetizer menu with everything from crab risotto and ratatouille-topped ricotta toast to chicken nuggets. It also has an outdoor area that will remind you of someone’s backyard, except you won’t have to worry about someone’s uncle who claims to be a “grill master” overcooking your burgers, scallops, or dry-aged ribeye.
