Bar favorites, burgers, and finger-friendly grub pepper the chilly Coldbrew's menu. Start with an order of chips and salsa ($2.95), mozzarella sticks ($5.95), or shrimp-scampi skewers ($6.95). Smaller selections such as the rib basket ($8.95) and the bite-size corn dogs served with mustard dipping sauce ($6.95) appease quieter appetites. Aside from fried fare, Coldbrew's also offers a variety of homemade soups and fresh salads. Try the grilled-chicken salad bedded atop mixed greens and tossed with tomatoes, cheese, and croutons ($7.95) or the glazed salmon ($9.95) with citrus-honey glaze, mixed greens, tomatoes, and sweet carrots. The exhaustive burger, sandwich, and wrap selection covers all bun bases, with everything from a low-calorie black-bean burger ($6.95) to a spicy buffalo wrap with blue-cheese dressing for dipping ($7.95).
T J's owner and former Atlanta Flames hockey player Tim Ecclestone founded his restaurant on the fact that, for decades, sports fans have gathered to enjoy big games over burgers, hot wings, and beer. He spent one of those decades helming Timothy John's, a Sandy Springs party spot, and has dedicated two more to running his current show—T J's Sports Bar & Grill. There, a kitchen works overtime on game nights to sling a menu of char-grilled burgers, piled-high sandwiches, and pizzas to throw at the mob of 60-odd televisions when the ref makes a bad call. Behind the bar, bartenders kick open the kegs and pour tall glasses of Miller Lite, Budweiser, Coors, and Michelob Ultra, all represented by bright neon signs mounted on the eatery's walls.
Players Sports Bar and Cafe thrills visiting taste buds with classic pub-style dishes, fills ears with musical notes performed live, and keeps eyes busy watching the sporting competitions on televisions throughout the establishment. Show fellow dining companions how much you care by lick-testing every morsel of a shared appetizer such as filet mignon egg rolls alongside plum barbecue sauce ($9.95), or tackle one of 17 wing flavors such as american jerk, thai, or chipotle ($7.95 for 10 piece appetizer or $12.95 for 20 piece entree). A sophisticated patty melt appears swirling a cape of swiss cheese and juggling grilled onion accessories as it stands on debonair rye bread ($9.95 value). Soups or salads and sides accompany primary proteins such as a 10-ounce Angus beef rib eye ($11.95 value) or crab-stuffed shrimp ($12.95 value). Friday night visitors can sweet-talk aloof pool balls into corner pockets while tapping cues to live rock on Fridays and rotating live-music styles on Wednesdays.
Jerseys keeps patrons fueled and fired up with a menu packed with provender. Spirited guests can peripherally peep at more than 40 TVs and at onstage nightly entertainment as they sate hunger cravings with apps such as a platter of warm, cheesy, chipotle tater tots ($5.99) or the Jerseys sampler plate—a smattering of phalanges-friendly fare including tenders, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and potato skins ($11.49). Wings—standard and boneless—come in a variety of sauces and quantities, from a six-piece serving ($5.29) all the way up to a 50-piece explosion ($35.79), with saucy surnames such as lemon pepper, sweet Thai, Diablo, and spicy ginger soy.
