For more than 30 years, Green Street has been dishing out a full menu of beer-hall staples while invigorating ears with live entertainment five nights a week. During warm months, customers can lounge on Green Street's palatial garden patio while noshing on palate-pleasing appetizers such as sweet potato fries ($4.99), artichoke dip ($7.29), or the Combo Mombo—a platter of chicken wings, potato skins, southwestern egg rolls, and battered fried mushrooms ($9.99) easily shared among friends or devoured by one huge toddler. An onslaught of entrees includes the blackened-salmon caesar salad, which parades across the palate led by an 8-ounce filet ($9.49), or the chili verde burrito ($7.99) served as a special on Tuesdays, sating beginning of the week tortilla-entrapped cravings. An Angus bacon cheeseburger ($7.99) and a half-rack of grilled, barbecued baby-back ribs ($12.99) round out meat-centric menu options.
Silver Restaurant has transformed the interior of its vintage brick building, which was built in 1926, into three modern and distinct floors. Next to the dining room, an open kitchen provides patrons with glimpses of the chefs as they transform fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients into new interpretations of classic American dishes. Though the menu changes based on availability, dishes may include organic chicken thighs with heirloom vegetables, roasted squab with foie gras, and fig-wrapped kurabuta pork chops. Whatever the season, a selection of local beers and artisanal cocktails—with playful names such as the Toe Tapper and the Thyme Stopper—help wash down every flavorful bite. These drinks are often crafted at the mezzanine-level bar. If one were to head downstairs instead, they'd enter a cozy lounge with a wine cellar stocked with more than 3,000 bottles.
For nearly a century, couples have found a romantic hideaway at the Riverside Hot Springs Inn, quickly earning it the nickname “Honeymoon Hotel.” Founder William Godfrey chose to set the inn’s foundation alongside the Portneuf River in 1914 due to the wealth of hot springs nearby and the curative powers he believed they held. People seemed to agree, and in order to rid themselves of pains and worries, they traveled miles to ease their sore muscles in the hot baths and dispose of overly musical snowmen.
Today, guests continue on with that tradition, dipping in the inn's more modern hot-springs tubs, which reach balmy temperatures of up to 106 degrees. Inside the inn, muted and neutral colors and period accents give the rooms a charming, romantic feel. This decadence extends to the Portneuf Grille & Lounge, formerly a confectionery, where chefs sear USDA steaks and craft eclectic vegetarian entrees. On Thursday, the dining room fills with live music, and on Friday, guests can sample the hotel's signature cioppino as they sip Northwest wines, specialty cocktails, or microbrews.
Huntsville Barbecue Company's pitmasters expertly mix dry-rubbed meats with savory seasonings, slow-smoking each cut to release its full flavor. Inspired by Texans’ rich tradition of picnicking, the menu teems with home-style side dishes such as broccoli slaw and potato salad, which can be enjoyed in a cozy, history-filled setting called Jolly Boy or delivered to lunar hootenannies via the company’s catering department. From Tuesday to Saturday, dine-in visitors can build single-meat meals from classic beef brisket or load Texas-size samplers with five smoked delicacies, such as seasoned half-chickens, spicy sausages, and pork spare ribs.
