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.

A Matter of Steak's cooks specialize in simplicity. Their art is the hot sandwich, which they present in a few delicious forms. Be it a combination of steak and provolone, chicken and provolone, ham and swiss, or veggie and cheese, the contents are grilled and seasoned with salt and oil. They top these fillings with additional hot grilled vegetables, including peppers, mushrooms, and onions, or translate these creations to salads. And in addition to these delicacies, breakfast sandwiches leave the kitchen all day long, served alongside chicken nuggets, wings, and onion rings.
If you visited the buffet at Kyo Ichiban Buffet Restaurant once a day for six months, you would never have to eat the same meal twice. That’s because chefs whip up more than 300 items daily, drawing from Japanese, Chinese, and American influences. Sushi and other seafood—including crab legs on Fridays—complement a host of hibachi entrees and vegetables, all of which are grouped under a single price for adults and a discounted rate for kids. Guests can also choose to order from the restaurant's menu, a compendium of tangy Chinese entrees such general tso's chicken, peking duck, and lo mein. And, despite the kitchen's staggering scope, it doesn't shy from personal touches—chefs prep the honey crispy chicken from a family recipe.
Knives swish through the air behind the sushi bar at Ajisai Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi, slicing red snapper, yellowtail tuna, and other fresh seafood for sashimi platters and elaborate rolls such as the Tuna Dynasty, which combines crisp cucumber with crab tempura, black-pepper tuna, eel, cream cheese, and avocado. Hibachi chefs sear filet mignon, lobster tails, and other proteins on tableside grills, pairing them with sizzling rice and other sides. Natural-wood accents and a hanging chandelier lend the eatery a subdued yet sophisticated ambiance.
The chefs at Famosa Latino Cuisine assemble a voluminous menu of Mexican, Guatemalan, Caribbean, and South American entrees. Like a land bridge made of day-old baguettes, their bill of fare brings various countries together through food, showcasing Mexican burritos alongside Caribbean mofongo or Guatemalan pork chops. The dishes' artful presentations pop with vibrantly hued sauces and fresh garnishes of lemon, cilantro, and avocado, all of which pair palatably with fruity margaritas and daiquiris or frosty beers.
At Luanda Mexican Grill & Cantina, guests sip margaritas, homemade sangria, and Mexican draft beers as they dine on sizzling beef fajitas, crispy taco salads, and hearty chimichangas. Surrounded by copper-colored walls and homey, dark varnished wood furnishings, guests chat with friends as they enjoy lunches of grilled chicken and squash pollo yucatan, or dinners of pepper-topped jalisco steak.
