Immersed in pictures of hockey stars, Center Ice Sports Bar & Grill unfurls a menu of savory American fare and a bevy of beverages. Treat your tablemates to an order of potato skins to see synchronized tongues climb aboard four starch-laden boats carrying gooey cheddar cheese and bacon bits ($7.50). Or, troll your own fork-motor through the grilled salmon entree, served with veggies, a choice of potato, and soup or salad ($14.95). Diners may sit at the bar, relax in one of the booths, or practice their head stands on the 12-ounce Certified Angus cushion of the Center Ice burger, stacked high with lettuce, tomato, and onion, and drizzled with thousand-island dressing ($7.95). The veggie wrap is a green thumb's delight, with a grilled tortilla enshrouding steamed broccoli, tomatoes, cherry peppers, and cheddar cheese ($7.50).
Matt Dombrowski opened Magruders more than 22 years ago, and ever since, it’s been serving the public’s need for hearty pub food and drinks. The menu of crispy apps, build-your-own-burgers, and sauced-up buffalo wings complements pours from the bar, which diners can enjoy inside or out on the patio amid fresh air and attention-seeking trees. At the end of each week, the pub entertains guests with comedy, music, or drink promotions.
Back in business after a fire in 2009, the Boston Hotel boasts a menu of USDA Choice steaks and prime rib, as well as sea scallops and lobster.

A selection of draft beers helps wash down entrees or enliven open-bar parties. Lunch hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
"The Tub," as Bathtub Billy's Restaurant and Sports Bar is fondly referred to by its regulars, is part sports bar and part family restaurant. For more than 20 years, locals have made this neighborhood staple their go-to spot for food, drinks, and, above all, sports. Televisions tuned into the game can be found everywhere here, from the big screens above the bar to the smaller TVs tucked into each booth. Outside, Bathtub Billy's features a giant two-level deck that overlooks a popular outdoor volleyball court; inside, kids and adults alike can play arcade games, pool, and darts. The menu is what you'd expect from a proper sports bar, with hearty pub burgers, flatbread pizzas, supreme nachos, and deep-fried footballs.
Rookies Sports Bar & Grill rouses scores of sports fans with a menu of classic American pub fare, weekly trivia events, and 23 big-screen TVs. Nab a booth with a team of friends and throw in on a 24-count plate of Rookies jumbo wings ($16.95), tossed in one of 10 savory sauces and repeatedly told about bad airline food to prevent them from flying away. Eight-ounce, certified Angus beef burgers ($6.95+) heckle Zweigles quarter-pound hot dogs ($4.95 each) in a heated, home-grill rivalry, and serious scarfers or retired paleontologists dig into full racks of baby-back ribs ($18.95) slathered with house-recipe sauce and fall-off-the-bone attitude. Clamp jaws around slices of philly steak pizza ($8.95) topped with shaved prime rib, peppers, onions, and mozzarella.
Combining a full bar and contemporary menu with the amenities of a modern pool hall, Six Pockets appeals to hungry stomachs and competitive appetites alike. Eschew the finery of flatware for a more digit-friendly approach by dining on an appetizing array of finger foods, such as the five-piece potato skins ($7.99). Or, fall fork-first into a caesar ($5.99), or buffalo-chicken-finger salad ($8.99). Team sandwich produces a plate-worthy starting lineup of burgers ($5.99+), wraps ($6.99+), and clubs ($5.99+), and eight draft beers await to take the edge off of roaring-hot buffalo wings ($9.99 for 10 wings), or hair-raising run-ins with the ghost of Minnesota Fats.
