BBOnline recommends enjoying a meal at one of the following restaurants after a day of water activities and sightseeing in Hampton Beach.

287 Exeter Road
Hampton, NH 03842

Make reservations at Bonta, one of the best choices in Hampton Beach restaurants for modern Italian cuisine. For a quick lunch or for just some relaxation, stop in at The Mahogany Bar for a Caribbean martini or blue lemonito and a plate of braised shortribs, shrimp scampi ravioli or grilled lamb lollipops. Bonta offers brick oven margherita or Sicilian pizzas. Guests can also choose from several authentic Italian entrees like braised rabbit or lamb, roasted duck, grilled scallops and pan seared swordfish. Save room for a molten chocolate cupcake, lemon panna cotta, apple crostatta or maple blueberry bread pudding, and a dessert wine to take pleasure in before retiring to your room at a Hampton Beach bed and breakfast.

Ron's Landing
379 Ocean Boulevard
Hampton, NH 03843

Another great pick in Hampton Beach restaurants for oceanfront dining is Ron's Landing. To take a lunch break from sailing, head into the pub for a beer and a chicken quesadilla, swordfish kabobs or New England clam roll along with some sweet potato fries. If you prefer to wait until dinnertime and relax with a bottle of wine on the patio, then do so. To accompany your drink, appetizers at Ron's include clams, lobster and mushroom ragout, and bacon wrapped scallops. If you have a taste for fresh fish, choose between shrimp, scallops, haddock or tuna and get it grilled, blackened or baked. There are also menus for children and those watching their weight. Be sure to check to see what events are happening at Ron's Landing, since there are weekly activities such as live music. Ron's Landing also offers Sunday brunch for those spending their weekend at a Hampton Beach inn.
