With soups and salads, wraps and flatbreads rounding out the menu, Wild Wing Café is also well-known for its beer battered onion rings, fresh ground chuck burgers and sides like flame roasted corn and mac ‘n’ cheese.

There’s live music often and an outdoor deck for temperate days, while daily special events like trivia nights and two-for-Tuesdays wing deals keep Jacksonville regulars hungry for more.

Taps Bar & Grill calms rambunctious appetites with an expansive menu of freshly made American pub fare backed by potent potables including 24 beers on tap. The rotating draft brews ($3.50+), including Stone IPA and Stella Artois, flow obligingly from taps to lend hoppy flair to fried pickle chips ($6.99), while piquant buffalo wings ($8.99 for 10) dress up maroon-colored glasses of pinot noir ($6). Andouille spicy sausages, gouda, and cheddar cheese are layered over grits with pan-seared shrimp ($10.99), as cutlery trained in conflict resolution unites surf with turf on plates of new york strip steak and fresh Mayport shrimp ($17.99). Preteen sidekicks can fuel growth spurts with inoculations of mac 'n' cheese ($3.95), while age barriers crumble decisively in the face of ice-cream-laced brownie sundaes ($4.99).

The Sun-Ray Cinema at 5 Points, formerly known as Riverside Theater and 5 Points Theatre, is a historic single-screen movie theater in the Riverside section of Jacksonville. Originally opened in 1927, the large room was specifically designed to accommodate live theater as well, in the event that talking movies didn’t take off as expected. Over the years, the theater was opened and closed numerous times as a performance center, a night club and general cinema house, until the Jacksonville Historic Preservation Commission approved it as a Jacksonville landmark and remodeled the space several years ago. Colorful murals give vibrancy to the updated space, while comfortable seating and long wooden tables in front of each row act as wonderfully modern touches, allowing each guest to set down food and drinks easily. P, pulled pork sandwiches and a host of not-seen-everywhere snacks make for a unique experience inside.

Located on Jacksonville’s south side, The Comedy Zone has been hosting some of the nation’s finest standup comedians for decades. Tucked away inside the Ramada Conference Center and Hotel, the Comedy Zone is a quaint, dim, charming nightclub venue filled with cozy tables and chairs. The thick carpet underfoot cushions the space further and keeps noisy shoes and squeaky chairs to a minimum. The small, gleaming wood stage is back-dropped by a large brick wall, reminiscent of so many other famous comedy clubs. Over the years, the stage has played host to a variety of national touring comedians and lots of local Florida talent. A full bar and a variety of burgers, sandwiches and appetizers are available to order, and can count toward the room’s industry-standard one drink or item minimum. Of course, that means comedy fans must be at least 21 years of age to enter the Zone.
