Un-wined at the Beach restaurant is open in the old Chez la Mer spot at the corner of 2nd and Wilmington where Azzurro Italian Oven used to be. Though it sounds like a wine bar, in fact it's more about good food and occasional live entertainment.
This will be #2 for them. Their other location is in Northeast, MD.
And check out The Treehouse! It's high atop the building and is THE spot for viewing sunsets. The app menu is creative, featuring our favorite Bacon-Wrapped Scallops and the Old Bay Pretzel Sticks. other apps include their Crab Dip (you'll love the parmesan crisps!) and a huge pile of Southwestern Nachos. In the salad dept., the star of the show is currently the Summer Pear Salad. Obviously it's seasonal, so grab it while you can. There are 5 nice salads from which to choose.
Entrees at Un-Wined at the Beach offer something for everyone. I had the Carolina Burger (BBQ sauce added), and also the Archie's Alfredo which is particularly tasty with grilled chicken perched atop. Followers have sent me photos of the crab dip and the huge Crab Burger – the best of a burger AND a crab cake. This one's a don't miss for sure. Scroll through the photo gallery to see some of the other goodies.
Again – weather permitting, treat yourself to the treehouse! The view is great, and it's a fun, intimate atmosphere up there. We've enjoyed the treehouse in previous incarnations of this building, and Un-wined at the Beach owner John Bragg has cleaned it up and made it even more welcoming. He even kept the communal hi-tops.
Current hours at Un-wined at the Beach are Sun. noon-9, Wed. & Thurs. 3 – 9, Fridays 3 – 10, and Saturdays noon – 10. They are currently closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but call to verify. These things can change like the tides.
