Glenelg beach is probably the closest beach to Adelaide town. Whilst in my opinion it's got nothing on Sydney beaches, its well worth a visit if you love the beach life.
On a scorching 35 degree day, we headed down to Glenelg and had lunch at The Grand Bar which is part of the Stamford hotel there. It's located right by the beach and so you get the lovely sea breeze and can enjoy the view of the sand and ocean as well.
Each day The Grand Bar has a number of specials and on this day it was a burger and drink for $19.50 and fish and chips for $19.50.
The best part of the dishes were the chips - super crunchy and dusted with a coating of spices, I couldn't stop eating them even though it was probably super unhealthy.
The fish serving was generous with 4 pieces lightly coated with a flour batter and the chicken burger not too bad either.
Perfect lunch to enjoy by the beach.
