    Reasonable, Restaurants Within Walking Distance of Radisson?

    Arriving 7/26 with DH and DD's 13 & 16. Staying at Radisson and we have the Breakfast/Lunch plan. Hope to eat late lunch each day, and then take girls out for light dinner and/or appetizers. On a tight budget, unfortunately can't do fancy this trip, but would love to visit local eateries. Scott's Brats is on our list, but I know they close early, so that day will be early breakfast, Scott's for lunch and then Gilligans for a early sunset dinner. Otherwise, any recommendations? Also I know the Radisson has a great happy hour, but I was also wondering if there are any places that we could walk to on the beach that might have fun happy hours as well.

    Bugaloe on the pier comes to mind for a great happy hour. Walking for budget friendly meals has lots of options:
    Fishes 'n More has an early bird special for 22.95 +/- which is good all tuesday evening....you must ask for the EB menu after 7.
    Tango has an early bird until 7pm.
    Casa Tua.... great pizza and salads.
    Smokey Joes.... ribs and lighter fare.
    Taste of Belgium.... good menu.
    Iguana Cantina.... Mexican.
    Rembrandt.
    Salt and Pepper.
    Wacky Wahoo!
    Bingo.
    Bavaria.
    Bunch of others available.... enjoy!

    How tight is tight? We took 18 yr old gd to Pelicans nest for grilled grouper at $21 per. She liked it so much, we went again. It is on the pier between Holiday Inn and Playa Linda.

    We really enjoy MooMba beach bar for light meals and happy hour. The breakfast is a small buffet style with an omelet station for around $12. The happy hour is at sunset and they have very reasonable prices on drinks and food. It is located between the Holiday Inn and Marriott Surf Club. http://moombabeach.com/component/

    Thanks for all the suggestions! Looks like we will have to get creative, as Arubalisa previously suggested hopefully late lunches at the Radisson will fill us up enough that we can just grab some appetizers or snacks for dinner. Looks like there are some fun places to go for that. DH and I will be fine, it's those hungry teens that like to eat 24/7 that will be a problem!

    Another vote for Pelican's Nest. We had appetizers as a meal a couple times and they have any drink $4 for happy hour and all day bucket specials on Chills and Brights. Iguana Catina would also be a decent dinner spot is you like Mexican inspired food, it's across the street from Playa Linda, definitely walking distance.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    it is not a terrible walk from the radisson.
    my guess is less than a half mile.
    go down palm beach rd...walk past mcdonalds....cross at the lights
    and continue straight for about 150 yds.
    barneys is on the right near the now defunct kong fui supermarket and sole mare restaurant.

    i agree with LUVSUN of SCOTT'S BRATS that Barneys entrees are large enough to share.
    Barney's also has daily "bar bite specials" in the $10 price range.
