Onsite at the Barbara Worth Resort, Caddies Sports Tavern offers a casual alternative to the linens and champagne brunches of the resort's Fields Steakhouse. Along with a wealth of draft beers and a full selection of spirits, a menu of wings, juicy burgers, and cheese-crusted pizza makes mealtime a cinch. The food is delectable and the beer specials are enticing, but for many, Caddies' appeal is in its warm, no-frills atmosphere. Friends meet, cheer, and munch here, the glossy bar top glinting in the light of the myriad flat-screen TVs. These screens loom above large windows, accenting the interior's den-like wood walls with live updates of sporting events and where Waldo currently is.
Charli Marrone's Italian Bar & Grill wants you to forget about their pizza. Well, maybe not to forget it completely—just to put off ordering a savory, cheese-laden pie until after you've explored the sumptuous Italian flavors on the rest of their menu. Those flavors range from fresh pasta, to tender steaks accented with a blue cheese demi-glace, to seafood tossed with buttery, lemon-laced white-wine sauce. Bartenders serve up draft beer and specialty cocktails to pair with each course.
Classic Mexican seafood is the specialty at Huerta's Restaurant. The kitchen produces cheesy shrimp enchiladas, crispy fish tacos, and whole fish paired with such sides as refried beans and rice. To kick off meals on the right foot, the restaurant?s popular shrimp-cocktail appetizer is served in a fancy glass or a replica of the Stanley Cup.

Ristorante Mamma Gina transports the tastes of northern Italy, where its parent restaurant stands in Florence, to the stomachs of eager diners. During dinner, the zuppa papa al pomodoro swathes palates in the warmth of herbal tomato flavors ($8.25), and the lemon-vinaigrette-marinated, thin-sliced artichokes of the carciofi empolese gently rouse taste buds to attention ($11.90). Over the crisply baked eggplant of the melanzane al forno, families can bask in conversation or arm-wrestle their grandparents ($23.90). Meanwhile, lunch-goers enjoy a menu of treats such as the grilled panino filetto, a combination of filet mignon and avocado slathered in light mustard dressing ($13.90).
At Nori Sushi Bar and Grill, chefs fuse traditional methods with new-wave techniques to transform fresh seafood into more than 20 specialty rolls. These include rolls stuffed with shrimp tempura and Red Dagon with spicy tuna, cucumber avacado, topped with cajun tuna and habanero masago that looks just as good on a plate as it would beneath a Christmas tree. But Nori’s selection stretches beyond sushi to full entrees, such as the teriyaki steak topped with a house teriyaki sauce. Diners enjoy the dishes inside the restaurant, which is adorned with bamboo plants and cat statues, or outside on the patio, next to the sand-colored exterior and underneath crimson umbrellas.
