Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has smoked beef brisket in-house nearly every night since 1941, painting each morsel with a tangy house-made sauce. Pulled pork, turkey breast, and polish sausage round out the menu with meals that are heartier than a burrito wrapped in Paul Bunyan’s plaid shirt. Boxed lunches and catered buffets brim with homestyle sides such as coleslaw, mac 'n' cheese, and jalapeño beans. Once the last pickle has been crunched and the last finger has been licked, guests can savor one of the restaurant’s most cherished traditions: a vanilla cone, on the house.

Pretzelmaker draws its inspiration from fifth-century German monks, who are credited with inventing the first pretzels to reward children’s good deeds. Today, freshly baked pretzels and pretzel bites, seasoned with flavors ranging from iced cinnamon-swirl to barbecue chipotle, along with the old standby salt, reward any craving. To enhance the scrumptious experience, Pretzelmaker offers a selection of dipping sauces, including cheddar and caramel.

The cuisine served at The Country Club would fit right in at a fancy club couched along a rolling golf course. Prime rib, broiled sea scallops, and lobster tails with drawn butter are a few of the chef's specialties. However, the atmosphere here is laid-back and welcoming rather than ritzy or exclusive. Friends gather at the family-run supper club for dinner Wednesday–Saturday. Afterward, many patrons enjoy sipping cocktails on the outdoor deck.

The variety on the menu at B.J. Clancy's is enough to make even the most decisive diner hesitate, debating the choice of fried Icelandic haddock over teriyaki chicken or a flame-broiled california burger. Nacho Bar, pretzels, and popcorn are served free at the pub, and all-you-can-eat fish fry events each Friday keep even the hungriest seafood-lovers satisfied.
