Late-Night Eats in Cocoa Beach

You’re on vacation and you’ve spent your day hanging on the shores of Cocoa Beach. After a sunset happy hour filled with appetizers and drinks, you head back to your hotel to get ready for the night’s adventure. Perhaps you and your crew go play putt-putt golf or you head to Cocoa Village for Painting with a Twist. Now you’re in your Uber heading back to the hotel when hunger strikes, and lucky for you, Cocoa Beach has plenty of late-night eats.

Check out one of these spots in Cocoa Beach for grub at a later hour:

Sandbar Sports Grill

Sandbar Sports Grill is conveniently located in the heart of uptown Cocoa Beach next to Alan Shepard Park. It's a family-friendly place until 10 p.m. and a great solution for a last-minute dinner. The kitchen is open and offers a full menu until midnight, though, and the bar is open until 2 a.m.

Sandbar offers an impressive menu, and everyone in your party is sure to find something that looks good. If you're just looking for some bar munchies to enjoy with a couple of cocktails, check out the impressive appetizer menu. Along with standard fare like nachos and mozzarella sticks, Sandbar also offers alligator tail, miniature tuna tacos and more.

Other menu items include salads, sandwiches, pizza, and burgers. The menu also features specialty dishes and seafood, so if you're looking for a more beach-inspired type of meal, you’ll want to check out the shrimp, clams, oysters and crab legs.

There's also a full bar, and the bartenders there make a mean hurricane. Depending on when you visit, you might be able to catch some live music.

Bruno's Beachside Pizzeria

Open until 11 p.m. every night of the week, this popular pizzeria will satisfy any late-night craving. The kitchen makes its dough in-house every day and only uses the freshest ingredients, so you can always count on them for a great pie. Plus, what could be better after a long day on the beach than a great slice of pizza?

Guests can build their own pizza by choosing from the many fresh toppings that are available, or you can choose a specialty pizza, such as the "Chicken Spinach Tomato." For those who like it hot, there's a "Hot Wing Pizza" that is truly phenomenal.

If you're not in the mood for pizza, you're sure to still be able to find something at Bruno's Beachside Pizzeria. For example, the Stromboli and calzones are fantastic, and you can also choose from a menu of salads, hot and cold subs, chicken wings and pasta dishes.



Long Dogger’s

Grab a seat and prepare to indulge in some of the best eats in Cocoa Beach. This laid-back, surfer-style restaurant will remind you of a retro surf shack and tiki bar. The covered patio will allow you to feel the ocean breeze, and the drive thru is perfect if you’re looking to grab and go.

The menu is full of amazing bites and entrees. Serving mostly American dishes, you have many choices including burgers, hot dogs, rice bowls, wings, and some Caribbean inspired dishes. Gluten free? They have something for you too. Long Dogger’s Cocoa Beach stays open until 11 p.m.



Coconuts on the Beach

Located conveniently on the Minutemen Causeway beach access, Coconuts on the Beach is great place to grab a late-night bite. It’s in the heart of Downtown Cocoa Beach right on the ocean, so you’re bound to find something good to eat and have a remarkable time.

Coconuts on the Beach has tons of tasty bar food for you to choose from such as nachos, cheese fries, tacos and chicken wings. For the health-conscious, there is a tasty menu of salads that are refreshing after a hot day at Cocoa Beach. Wraps, burgers, and sandwiches are also available.

Oh, and you’re going to want to save room for dessert – the key lime pie is fantastic. Coconuts is open until 12 a.m.
