I get to AC every couple of years, mainly to meet up with some old friends as a sort of equidistant reunion point. I'm not big on gambling, so I ususally do my obligatory hour or so in the casinos and then wander around (I've walked to a lot of places in AC at all times of night and never had a problem, but I do tend to stick to main streets). Here's my recs, all within a 15 minute walk of the strip:
Tony's Baltimore Grill - Yes, Top 10 NJ pizza
Irish Pub - My favorite AC place.
Gilchrists - 50's ambiance breakfast and lunch
Angelo's Fairmount Tavern - I usually manage to drag my friends here instead of the casinos. Old School Italian.
Pic A Lilli Tavern - Great greasy chicken wings and fingers
White House Sub Shop - I think it's good, but it's reputation is way greater than it deserves. Go once.
Then, to bring home great Italian bread, Rando's bakery and Formica Bros bakery. Both a walk back in time.
Ken, another good watering hole outside the Casinos is the Chelsea Pub, between Atlantic and Pacific Aves. near the TROPICANA.
