the Boardwalk offers various restaurants in a range of prices. You can find casual (walk up and order) fish and lobster items, as well as salads, sandwiches and burgers. There is also a nice sit-down restaurant with a bit higher price range.

The Upperdeck has AMAZING crab legs! They are more expensive, but you definitely get a ton of crap. Also try the lobster bisque!

Stopped in for dinner and drinks. The place was crowded and we opted to sit at the bar. I had the Lobster Bisque in a bread bowl and she had the Shrimp and Crab Egg Rolls - both tasted great!

Some of the best lobster bisque I have ever tasted at a reasonable price. We ordered through the service line then found a table, so we did not use wait staff.

The Boardwalk is known for their Lobster Bisque soup and it always proves to still be amazing. The back deck is the best scenic view for newcomers.

Yes, we have 2 and they accompanied us. There are a lot of restaurants on the boardwalk so they do not like them near there so we just skirted the edges.
