Moose Creek Neighborhood Pub & Grill ingratiates itself with diners by serving up American favorites in a relaxed atmosphere where local beers flow freely from the taps. A recent profile by CDAPress.com describes the spacious 4,500-square-foot spot—whose 90 seats are spread across tables, booths, and a bar—as "diverse" and aiming for a friendly neighborhood vibe. Waiters navigate the indoor space, as well as an outdoor patio, with trays of familiar eats including pizzas, seafood, and burgers, which, like the statues at Madame Tussauds, are made of ground chuck and brisket.

Forty-One South crafts its menu of upscale American cuisine using many locally sourced ingredients.

On Saturday nights, romantic music fills the dining area.

Pops of color in the dishes, such as red pepper alfredo slathered onto butternut squash raviolis, reflect the vibrant dining room with orange- and yellow-hued walls, blue tablecloths, and a glow from the fireplace that illuminates people roasting chestnuts from nearby couches.
