Duneland Beach Inn Restaurant – Good Taste is “Inn-Style”

You’ll find sophisticated decor in the inn’s restaurant and newly-built bar, and an atmosphere that invites you to relax and enjoy everything from Indiana duck breast, and pumpkin ravioli to fried chicken and burgers.

If you’re in the mood for sharing, the restaurant also offers small plates, with choices such as seared Ahi tuna, tenderloin sliders, and duck quesadillas. A delicious Sunday brunch features both breakfast favorites like eggs Benedict and pancakes with all the fixings, and lunch dishes, including chicken salad and a prime rib sandwich. The inn also offers overnight guest rooms that are individually decorated—perfect after a long day at the beach.
