With more than 30 years in the food service industry, owner Lisa Foust and her staff grill, fry, and bake up a mix of classic American and deli-style eats. Dining fishermen can toss napkin nets over laps before sending fork spears into the chicken Chesapeake, a grilled boneless chicken breast topped with crab meat and a shredded cheese blend ($15). The savory grilled, smothered chopped steak similarly sates with a pound of ground beef under a blanket of grilled vegetables, steak sauce, and cheddar and jack cheeses ($13). Satisfy stomachs with grilled Reubens and Rachels stacked with corned beef, Thousand Island dressing, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut and coleslaw respectively, plus a choice of any deli side ($8.50 each). Guests can also dive mouth-first into 14-inch pizzas ($8), 8-ounce burgers ($8), or a small vegetarian strombolis stuffed with spinach, tomato, onion, peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, and cheese ($8 for a small size).
Brew 22's executive chef plucks local ingredients to craft a menu filled with savory twists on classic tavern fare. The bulbous Brew burger ($12) busts up buns as proudly as the Hulk in home-economics class with a juicy cargo of Chapel Ridge Farms beef, Amish cheddar, and a fried egg. Roasted salmon ($16) walks a cedar plank before plummeting into pools of sweet-corn pudding and tomato confit, as hand-piped pork sausage ($14) slow-dances to symphonies of sauerkraut and an encore of roasted peaches. Cap meals with the chef's chocolate pretzel bathed in fudge and warm rivers of caramel sauce ($5).
Winner's Circle Saloon & Grille carries on the traditions of the Wild West with lively music and an extensive menu of Western-inspired American favorites. Limber chomping muscles for a marathon meal with starters such as Western Round Up fries, where hand-cut potato slices are topped with a mighty triumvirate of cheese, barbecue sauce, and ranch dressing ($6). Then sample from Winner’s Circle’s Sandwich Wagon, featuring the Circle Roll Up, which smothers fried chicken tenders with lettuce, tomato, cheddar, barbecue sauce, and ranch dressing in a soft tortilla shell blanket ($8). Cavernous appetites will enjoy the brisket platter, a slow-roasted beef brisket basted with Winner's Circle's own JimiJam glaze and sliced thin, making it especially useful for jimmying locks or creating elegant beef brisket origami ($18). While noshing on flavorful bites, wash tongues clean with a selection of 10 draughts, including Budweiser and Guinness, or pick from a list of bottled domestic and imported beers.
Within the cozy, plush confines of a 19th-century brownstone mansion, Alfred's Victorian crafts specialty Northern Italian dishes alongside hand-cut pastas. Appetizers rouse tongue-napping taste buds with dishes such as mussels Livorno, baked in a savory tomato garlic sauce ($8), and the three-cheese-topped french onion soup ($6). Pasta patrons can give a toothy salute to the Al Ragu bolognese, which smothers hand-cut tagliatelle in a thick tuscan meat sauce and an even thicker accent ($15), while anti-carnivorous cravings can be sated by bites of portobello Ariana, a savory amalgamation of fresh spinach, melted provolone, and toasted almonds ($17). Pescatarians can launch a table-mounted trident into Alfred's many seafood delights, including cioppino with clams, scallops, shrimp, and mussels ($27).
