Marc Murphy’s surf-themed eatery, beloved for its lobster rolls and mac-and-cheese-drenched hot dogs, branched off uptown in early 2011. At 165 seats, location two is a behemoth, but it’s maintained the original’s beachy, laid-back vibe. To grow into its bigger britches, a few wraps were added for the lunchtime stroller crowd, as were a handful of entrees like a Cajun shrimp and grits. The bar got a few new bottles to fill up its expanse of shelves—interesting wines and artisanal beers have augmented an already impressive list. Dinner here is good-time summer camp romp (Tater tots! Tacos! S’mores!) and strives to induce a most worthwhile coronary. To beat back the heft of a meal that gears up with a deadly rich crab dip or a sextet of deviled eggs, order a Lionshead Pilsner. One of the recent additions to the tap, it’s a light beer that’s not short on taste. But Ditch Plains is not all junk food: delicate dishes like a roasted branzino in salsa verde are refreshingly winning.
