Tower230 is a modern, upscale sports bar filled with charbroiled meats, frosty beers, and utter contempt for low-definition television. Intercept a menu as you settle into a sleek, chic booth and start with mesquite-chicken roll-ups (with monterey jack, red jalapeños, and bell peppers rolled into a flour tortilla and fried, with sour cream and salsa, $7.25). Split a 16-inch Meat Junky pizza ($17) with your forced dining companions, communally savoring the pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham, seasoned ground beef, and salami, or perform curls with a Tower burger—a half-pound, hand-formed patty stuffed between two grilled-cheese sandwiches, four bacon strips, and two fried eggs ($10.25). Tower's draft-beer list and massive bottle-beer collection feature a Michigan-made pint of Dark Horse Reserve special black ale ($5) and an imported bottle of Stella Artois ($4.50).
Established as an Irish restaurant and bar in 1910, the Flat Iron has operated in a former four-story hotel dating from the late 1800s while continually dishing up authentic entrees from the motherland of limericks. Flip open Flat Iron's menu to find flavors imported from the tops of MacGillycuddy's Reeks, such as the Flat Iron potato skins ($6.25), six deep-fried ovals mingling with mixed cheese, crumbled bacon, and scallions. Pub specials include the tried-and-true fish and chips ($10.95) and the traditional shepherd's pie ($9.95), showcasing natural deposits of ground lamb under gravy and cheese bedrock. Flat Iron's burger and sandwich selections include regional inspirations from Dublin, Ireland, to Dublin, Ohio; the Irish Bend burger ($7.50) is festooned with sautéed mushrooms and swiss, while the Charlotte chicken ($7.95) arrives smothered with thousand-island dressing and crunchy bacon. Barley-and-yeast connoisseurs can choose an imported beer ($3.50–$7.50) to continue their Gaelic jaunt, or reward American-ale summoners by drinking a domestic beer on tap ($3.50–$5).
