Going to the Cape is a pain -- the traffic on the bridge, the way Route 6 narrows down to two lanes past Hyannis, never getting invited by anyone. Ever. Helping you get a taste of the Cape without leaving the South Shore, Beachfire Restaurant and Bar
Nestled cliffside on Hull's Nantasket Beach, BF's an oceanfront seafood/pub hybrid located in the 225-seat former Ocean Club space boasting sunset views from either two floors of window-lined dining rooms w/ porch seating or a rocky "Portuguese coast-esque" 23-table manicured garden patio replete with outdoor bar, steps down to the beach, and a giant-stoned fire pit, which is good for warming hands/discussing Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Fresh fare includes a butter cracker crumbed baked haddock with rice/grilled asparagus; pan seared salmon w/ a spinach pesto, green beans, and Kalamata olives; and grilled swordfish w/ corn salsa and Yukon Gold potato rosti -- but not rosti-farian, since Beachfire insists on washing their food. For pub grub there's grilled sirloin tips w/ a summer tomato salsa and rice; traditional fish 'n chips with fries/slaw; and a choice of four juicy char grilled burgers including Jalapeno Cheddar, BBQ and Crispy Onion, and Bacon Blue, which is how Kevin feels when it takes seven degrees to connect to someone.
Because ocean views go better with snacks/beverages, BF's slingin' oysters on the half shell, pulled pork nachos, and sauteed mussels w/ chorizo/banana peppers to go along with your standard repertoire of beers (UFO, Magic Hat), summery cocktails like mojitos, and their signature three-rum'd Beachfire Punch, also another way to experience pain if you happen to call Nantasket Nantucket.
