Former Chicago mainstays, the Hinchey family crowds their American-fueled menu with palate-pleasing entrees (available after 4 p.m.) and sandwiches, many of which pay tribute to the culinary styles and landmarks of the Windy City. The 1-pound, Chicago-style pork tenderloin tranquilly arrives on the dinner table, relaxed from its Jamaican jerk rubdown and served with mango chutney sauce ($19.95). A patron favorite, the grouper sandwich dips local grouper in beer batter before it is fried and dressed in tartar sauce ($9.95). Meat and noodle layers build lasagna ($15.95) empires, and turkey, ham, cheese, and bacon construct an edible Sears Tower ($8.95), which can be enjoyed without routine security checks and back-and-forth strolls through faulty metal detectors.
A one-stop dugout for tasty eats and sporty pastimes, Coach's Corner dishes up an epic menu of bar favorites in a communal atmosphere bedecked with eye-fetching memorabilia. Diners can recruit ravenous doppelgängers to take on a colossal double-stacked Grand Slam burger donned with their choice of two toppings ($11.99), or snugly fix fangs into the warm kaiser roll ensconcing the Home Run burger, which placates rumbling tummies with a fresh array of ground beef, lettuce, tomato, and onion ($8.99). Both burgers are served with a pickle, a choice of fries, potato salad, or coleslaw, and a choice of swiss, cheddar, feta, or mozzarella cheese.

At Chucktown Tavern, you get to hear your neighbors sing. The joint booms with karaoke every single night of the week as patrons try their pipes on numbers from the DJ's selection of hundreds of karaoke tracks. Melodies of popular tunes and weekend performances from local bands drift towards the kitchen, where head chef Hope Young and her kitchen crew fold locally grown produce into classic breakfasts, sandwiches, and seafood dishes. She stuffs burgers with filings such as marinara, pepperoni, pimento cheese, and jalapeños, piling the patties onto freshly baked breads. Glasses click together, spilling rivulets of imported beer and cocktails into cool rings on wooden tables. The revelry pours out onto the front courtyard, where patrons recline in padded furniture like kings or cool pieces of wood a king found and named.
Tiki Island plies patrons with island kitsch, live entertainment, and an array of tropical eats, including frozen drinks, surf and turf, and sandwiches. With an emphasis on local partnerships, Tiki Island serves up fresh oysters, shrimp, crab, and other fruits of the sea harvested from a nearby Neptunian orchard. Seared raw and served on a bed of wakame with wasabi and soy sauce, the sashimi ahi tuna ($8.95) is a popular "Tikitizer," but for those who prefer their meat gill-less, chicken tenders ($7.95), wings ($9.95 for a dozen), and sliders ($7.95) make the grade. From the sandwich menu, an all-beef Sonoran hot dog gets wrapped in bacon, fried, and gingerly posed on a sub roll with toppings ($8.95). Wash this salty dog down with a tidal-wave gulp of Blackbeard's mojito ($7.95, made with black-cherry rum), but beware the nefarious squid that awaits you at the bottom of your glass. The strawberry-basil margarita ($6.95), made with Tiki Island's own house-grown basil, and the St. Croix frozen lemonade ($8.95) also provide refreshing sippers ideal for summer.
