If you’re in Coney Island with a group that’s more interested fish bowl cocktails than the fish in the actual aquarium, go to Place To Beach. It looks like all the other stands serving lobster rolls and beers right on the boardwalk, but this place has a full-service back patio with an expanded menu of seafood-focused bar food, like fried calamari and fish and chips. They also have Happy Hour during the week, nightly drink and food specials, and DJs and live music on the weekends.
