Atlantic on Pacific is a quick walk from the Boardwalk, and their raw bar is one of the best in town. They have a rotating list of about seven different types of oysters to order, so you can sample mollusks from different regions, including from the nearby Lynnhaven river, as well as shrimp cocktail, raw or steamed clams, and cold water lobster tail. If oysters aren’t your thing, they also have a great selection of bar food like Nashville-inspired hot chicken sandwiches and cheddar jalapeño cornbread. Their cocktail menu is also excellent—the Pungo Sour tastes exactly like a warm candle smells, in a good way, while the Mango Tango combination of tequila, aperol, and ginger beer are made for vacation sipping.
