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).

Rebel’s Rock evokes a traditional Irish county pub, where a cozy atmosphere complements made-from-scratch dishes and a draft-only beer selection. The menu lists three poutine variations, including Dawnes Mess, an Irish interpretation sporting three irish cheeses, Trimelston beef gravy, and a charming brogue ($7). Requisite Irish eats abound, from shepherd's pie ($10) to fish and chips, made with beer-battered North Pacific haddock ($10/5 oz.; $14/10 oz.). The Rebel burger flouts the rules with its combination of a juicy patty and house-made square sausage and its fondness for drag racing ($10).
