Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

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.
Blackjacks Grill welcomes families to tuck in to a menu filled with hearty housemade chili, grilled steaks, sizzling fajitas, and sauce-slathered spareribs. The frontier-themed menu ventures into Tex-Mex territory with build-your-own quesadillas and pillow-size chimichangas while dabbling in lighter fare with blackened tilapia and grilled chicken breast. As they explore the flavors of the South, guests enhance their feasts by watching football, playing arcade games, or plotting strategies for Oregon Trail.
Ben & Jerry’s shops offer a variety of frozen concoctions, but their signature ice cream takes the cake. Flavors come with names that no tongue can resist—Cherry Garcia, Imagine Whirled Peace, Triple Caramel Chunk, Chunky Monkey, Chocolate Therapy, and New York Super Fudge Chunk. Cups of Greek yogurt might introduce themselves as Banana Peanut Butter and Blueberry Vanilla Graham. Sorbet flavors include Lemonade, Berry Berry Extraordinary, and Mango Mango—none of which can be purchased in stores, not even with a sorbet prescription. Low-fat, fat-free, and dairy-free flavors are also available for the figure conscious or those still suffering from butter-fat-related night terrors.
