Nasty's Sports Bar gets its title from a nickname that the clean-playing but hard-hitting Nathan (of the family that owns the bar) earned on the football field. But the only crunching done at this eatery involves a set of teeth and the goodness of fresh Angus burgers. The family of restaurant and sports enthusiasts has put together a menu full of classic American grill fare, such as buffalo chicken sandwiches and boneless wings. They've also carefully cultivated an atmosphere of friendly energy that could power a barge through a river of syrup.
Sports reign at Loose Goose Pub & Grille, where the staff pairs its signature burgers and pizzas with a rotating selection of domestic and draft brews, including regional favorites such as Yuengling’s Lord Chesterfield Ale. Guests keep an eye on flat-screen televisions to cheer on the Buckeyes as they pour their own libations from 100-ounce beer towers. Between bites of potato skins or pretzel sticks, they can challenge each other to games on the pool table or take in the music of live bands on select evenings.
It's a good idea to arrive early at Movie Tavern, and not only if you hate missing the opening credits. Early birds can peruse the extensive menu of chef-crafted American cuisine, from kobe beef sliders to pizza and sandwiches. But even after the show begins, the snacks keep coming. Unobtrusive servers slip in during the show to deliver orders, and can be called on for more drinks or dessert with the push of a button. Guests can even sip margaritas or signature cocktails at the full bar before heading in to the theater. The family-friendly establishment also serves finger food for kiddies.
As for the entertainment, audiences get to enjoy all-digital presentations of first-run films any day of the week, plus Retro Cinema every Wednesday morning at 11:30 a.m. as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. Audiences also benefit from Movie Tavern's membership program. Anyone can sign up for free online to receive one free bag of popcorn, plus a free ticket every year on their birthday, special offers, movie news, and invites to screenings and other special events.
