Dylan’s Beachside Restaurant
81 Ocean Boulevard
Hampton Beach, NH
Tel: (603) 929-2077

HAMPTON — Whether it’s a lunchtime pizza or dinner for the family after a day at the beach, Dylan’s is the place to be to curb that seaside appetite and still go easy on your wallet.

Located at the corner of Ocean Boulevard and “K” Street, Dylan’s offers year-round dining in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

Owners Dan and Mike Traficante have been treating locals and visitors alike to their own brand of cuisine for the last 31 years, 16 of those years on the beach. Dan and Mike share the distinction of owning one of the longest operating businesses along the boulevard. Just upstairs from Guido Murphy’s, Dylan’s offers a wide array of lunch and dinner choices for even the most discerning palate.

A brick oven newly built last year offers visitors some of the best pizza on the beach. Lobster, shrimp and Seafood Bellanona pizza are all on the menu. For those feeling less adventurous there are all the traditional pizzas as well, such as pepperoni. Either way, the oven is sure to yield a pizza that won’t soon be forgotten.

“The pizza has been very well received,” said Dan.

For years Dylan’s has offered the freshest seafood with an Italian flair. From live lobsters, steamers, swordfish and tuna to fried favorites such as clams and haddock, Dylan’s offers a wide array of seafood excellence.

Not into seafood? How about pasta? Dylan’s pasta offerings are unsurpassed on the beach with more than 20 different pasta dishes on the menu.

“There is something for everyone here,” Dan said.

During the summer season, Dylan’s is among Hampton’s finest dining establishments. Eating outside on Dylan’s balcony is an absolute must during this time of year, with a spectacular view of the beach and ocean beyond.

In the winter, Dylan’s remains a destination for both locals and visitors who cant get enough of what the Traficantes have to offer.

For those looking to entertain a large group of people, Dylan’s offers a 125-seat function hall that will cater to your wedding receptions, business meetings or bar mitzvahs.

Dylan’s is located at 81 Ocean Boulevard. The restaurant offers delivery to a limited area. To place an order or for more information contact Dylan’s at (603) 929-2077.
