A family-owned eatery passed down through several generations, The Beacon Tavern fits right in with the historic neighborhood it resides in. The tavern's owners and proprietors, all of whom still live nearby, emphasize that close-knit atmosphere as they serve recipes made from scratch and meats hand cut on site.

Aromas from double-cut pork chops, north-atlantic salmon, and pale-ale-battered cod fill the air as 16 draft beers and a lengthy selection of reds and whites dazzles palates. A kids' menu keeps energetic youngsters occupied with built-in games and helpful tips for convincing parents why they should be emancipated.

The tavern's main dining room accents steaming plates of food with exposed brick walls and tall wooden booths. In warm weather, The Alley seating area features alfresco dining with sights of the South Plaza neighborhood and mischievous birds dropping gum into the hair of passersby. Meanwhile, parties and meetings convene in the upstairs Monk’s Loft area.

For more than 20 years, the chefs at Spirit's Restaurant have been serving up cuisine to match their patriotic location, tucked inside the American Inn. The chefs offer a menu of hamburgers, sandwiches, and hearty entrees such as fried chicken and lasagna. But if you can't choose just one dish from this spread of classic American eats, opt for the buffet. Offered seven days a week, the chefs stock buffet trays with enough comfort food to feed armies of customers all day, every day, excepting, of course, the hours that they're closed or find themselves mysteriously transported to an alternate dimension.

Amidst dazzling décor imported from Egypt, Sahara Sheesha Lounge's handmade Egyptian hookahs billow out wafts of premium flavored tobacco from Al Fakher, Star Buzz, and the lounge's own hand-crafted blends. Amid handmade rugs and bamboo chairs, spacious couches cushion customers as they pair their puffs of flavored smoke with sips of tea, fresh fruit juices, and smoothies. The lounge also boasts a large projection-screen television for communal entertainment and eschews the greatest yodeling hits in favor of authentic midwestern music.
