The Knife and Fork Inn is one of the oldest AC restos (it was big during Prohibition) and is still going strong after a reno in 2005. It's got an awesome wine list and the cooks make killer steaks and seafood.
Normal pizzas fail in comparison to the inventive pies served at Tony Boloney's. Toppings include chicken and waffle; fig, homemade goat cheese, and local honey; and macaroni salad -- why forgo pizza for other food when you can simply put said other food on top of a pizza?
Gilchrist's has been an AC staple since 1946 got its breakfast and lunch. The most popular item on the menu? The blueberry pancakes of course.
Back Bay Ale House is a little piece of the Key West and home to Basin Mason Margarita. It's open mid-February to the end of the year.
Bring quarters for the jukebox at your table and be ready for a long night because the bar is open 24 hours a day. (The kitchen is dishing out grub until 3am.) The spaghetti has meatballs as big as peaches. Best for loud, rowdy types.
With $3 beers, 50-cent wings after midnight, and rooms above the bar for rent starting at $25, we're pretty sure this classic Boardwalk Irish pub is run by Prohibition mobsters. So if you run into Nucky Thompson, we told you so.
There's no mistaking this Atlantic City deli's raison d'être: a giant sign above the 1940s corner diner displays a neon-lit sandwich above the words, "home of submarines." You're not just here for a legendary foot-long though, you're here for the Italian Sub. Layers of peppered salami, ham, and thick-sliced provolone join the requisite toppings of lettuce, tomato, onion, and hot pepper relish before the whole shebang is drizzled with oil and dusted with oregano. A half-sandwich could easily constitute a meal at White House, but get the whole one anyway.
Angeloni’s II is a mom-and-pop shop that only serves the freshest food and has the largest wine list in the area. It also caters parties of up to 50 people.
The husband and wife team is all about giving guests the best meal possible at one of their three restaurants in the area. Their Café's got lots of comfort food and an awesome happy hour from 4-6pm everyday.
