Forget about the chains (like the one right next door). Come to The Dive for a real beach hangout. Kitschy decor will keep you amused while you wait for your food. Great burgers and tacos in a very relaxed atmosphere.

The Dive Bar is a local dive bar, and we like it that way! Staff is friendly and prompt, menu is varied and grilled cheese is always on special! Definitely a recommended stop.
