Yes, there are several restaurants an easy to find mostly up near 3rd street. I would walk North to the pier. Nice pleasurable walk wide sidewalk on beach, but be aware of bicycles on the path.

Lighting is adequate in evening hours but there are also many transient people looking for opportunities.
