Chef Phillip Miller adheres to two guiding principles when crafting his menu. First, every ingredient must be locally grown or raised. Second, it must be seasonal. These criteria have served Miller well at 1810 Tavern, where his specialties include caramelized scallops in red-wine cherry reduction and black-bean burgers topped with a spicy sriracha mayo. If both of the above sound incredible, don't fret over choosing just one; Miller's upscale spin on pub food includes an all-day tapas menu with smaller portions of each main course.
But the food is only one half of the equation. The other arrives in the form of top-shelf wines and spirits, as well as beers from acclaimed craft breweries such as Rogue and Flying Dog. This refined drink list finds its reflection in the building itself, a historic gem complete with exposed brick and a digital jukebox that dates back to the 19th century. Take your drinks out to the brick patio to enjoy weekly performances by local musicians.
Chef Mark Thompson knows the importance of sharing. He shares his culinary talents with guests dining on his tapas-style dishes, and his guests share those dishes with each other. This creates the warm, communal dining atmosphere at Boh?m Bistro. Throughout the menu, diners can expect to see cuisine influenced as much by the French countryside as the sultry South. His creations include classic boeuf bourguignon with short rib and red wine and fig-and-smoked-blue-cheese flatbread splashed with a balsamic glaze. Hushpuppy-crusted catfish and root beer-glazed pork chops combine elements of sweet and savory.
Siba Cucina immerses its guests in the sensory experience of dining in Italian villa, filling rustic brick and stucco walls with the scent of hearth-baked pizzas and flatbreads, butter and spicy tomato sauce ladled onto fresh pasta, and grilled steaks of salmon and filet mignon. Guests belly up to the wine bar for tapas and imported Italian wines or savor elegant dinners of lump crab cake, housemade meatballs, and pan-roasted sea scallops.

It was June 1, 1950 when the screens first lit up at Dependable Drive-In. And although film stars have changed over the years, the spirit of the movies has stayed as strong as it was on that long-ago summer day. Families and friends still pull into drive-in and select one of the first-run features showing on its four screens. As the action unfolds, Dolby Sound comes pulsing through the car, truck, or pumpkin carriage's own stereo system.
At the snack bar, friendly staffers serve up a menu as timeless as the drive-in's old-fashioned speakers (which have been made into nostalgic clocks available for customer purchase). Hot dogs, nachos, root beer floats, and other favorites all pair perfectly with movies about alien invasions or just one 90-minute shot of Keanu Reeve looking really intense.
