With cue balls clacking on the pool tables and a game almost always on one of the multiple TVs, one might think that The Altitude Bar and Grill is just a sports bar. If the diverse pub menu is any indication, though, it's much more than that. The kitchen churns out hearty appetizers that include wings smothered in sauces ranging from mild barbecue to zesty teriyaki or breaded zucchini and mushrooms. Kitchen staff make their third-pound beef patties by hand each day, and transform them into burgers such as the Steakhouse, topped with A-1 sauce and crispy onions, and the Tex Mex, featuring chipotle-barbecue sauce and individual cattle brands to demonstrate authenticity. Grilled chicken sandwiches and fresh salads, meanwhile, provide healthier alternatives.
At Felt, the satisfying clack of billiard balls rings out, conjuring the spirit of Minnesota Fats as players take aim during games held at one of 23 tables. Whether practicing trick shots at a 7-foot Valley pool table, settling bets at a full-size 9-foot table from Gold Crown or Diamond, or pretending to understand how the British think at the lone snooker table, players fuel their competitive spirit with food and drink from the hall’s bar and kitchen. Half-pound deep-fried chimichangas and all-day breakfast spreads complement draft beers drawn from one of 10 taps or cocktails mixed using spirits from well-stocked racks of liquor. As players munch or sip, they also feed their minds with the highlights that flicker forth from the bar’s flat-screen TVs.
Since 1984, Champps Americana's kitchen has sizzled with made-from-scratch dishes, satiating sports fans and families with a comfortable atmosphere. Amid sunlit dining rooms, diners seated at wooden tabletops can root for their favorite pixels on flat-screen TVs broadcasting live sports. In the kitchen, chefs prepare pastas with grilled chicken and roasted artichokes, pile buns with barbecued pulled pork and spicy buffalo chicken, and fill soft taco shells with grilled steak. Behind the bar, bartenders whip up specialty cocktails and margaritas and fill goblets with wine and local craft beers on tap.
The menu at Angel's Share WinePub invites one deceptively simple, decidedly delicious question: what to order? The pub?s drink menu alone lists more than 100 wines available by the glass and bottle, not to mention eight regional microbrews on tap. Bartenders also craft classic and specialty cocktails using regional produce, house-made syrups, and good old fashioned gumption.

People first started patronizing Delizios' location back in 1890, when it was O'Briens General Store. The spot evolved with the times, though, first into a saloon and then, just as the car was growing popular, into a gas station. Today, after a nine-month renovation, Delizios' kitchen sits where the drive-through filling station used to be, and the dining room resides where the garage's "grease pit" once was.
You'd be hard pressed to find traces of the eatery's automotive past in its cozy dining room, though, which opens onto a breezy patio with views of Bega Park. In its cozy confines, diners sip their choice of the more than 70 wines on the wine list, and feast on Italian-inflected plates, such as choice cut tenderloin medallions with gorgonzola, or fettucine alfredo topped with grilled chicken breast. On weekends, the same Italian touches enhance brunch plates such as eggs benedict with crispy prosciutto, or banana's roster French toast served in a sea-worthy gondola.
