Using chisels, electric chainsaws, and hand cracking techniques, mixologist Julian Goglia and his team complete what Jezebel magazine calls an “awe-inspiring ice program” to extract extra-large cubes from gigantic blocks. From behind his pinewood bar, mixologists incorporates those meticulously shaped cubes into classic and signature cocktails—from old fashioneds to moscow mules—crafted with top-shelf spirits and housemade syrups, sodas, and tinctures. To complement these libations, Executive Chef Mike Blydenstein uses locally sourced ingredients to create Southern comfort food and reinterpreted regional cuisine from scratch. Their classic-meets-modern dishes include cornmeal-crusted oysters with house slaw and crunchy buttermilk chicken with fingerling-potato hash.

It's pretty impressive that, as impatient as hunger makes people, a dish that takes an hour or more to prepare is still a restaurant's most popular. That's the case at Fletcher's, where their baked wings more than make up for the wait. They come in a choice of sauces, sweet heat being the perennial favorite. Those who don't have time to wait that long for food needn't worry, though. The fried variety of wings cut way down on the prep time.

The diverse menu also includes specialty pizzas, turkey lasagna, and shrimp and grits, all of which pair nicely with a drink from the full bar or working faucets. The entertainment is similarly diverse, taking the form of anything from poker games to live DJs.

O’Riley’s Food & Spirits’ cooks top tables with homemade burgers and wings as their guests listen to live music from local artists or absorb sports action from the large projection screen stretched across an entire wall. On select nights, the sound system quiets and spotlights focus on the stage to highlight the fast-paced observations of local comedians. A suite of six of felt-lined tables provide an outlet for skill-based contests, whether it need be a round of pool or competitive juggling of said tables.
