At Smokehouse BBQ's small, rustic shack, the cooks do barbecue right, slow-smoking their signature ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, and turkey legs for diners to slather with their spicy or original sauce. They pile their meats onto sandwiches or arrange them on plates gussied up with homestyle sides such as potato salad, coleslaw, and baked beans. Diners can also order meats by the half-pound or pound for a family feast or to provision a party, and the spot's "trailside packs" also make for easy group meals or a mountain troll's school lunch.
The thud of well-aimed balls precedes the satisfying crack of crashing pins, a sound that signifies victory for competitors spread across North Bowl's family-friendly lanes. A retreat for seasoned and novice bowlers alike, the alley keeps competitions balanced with lightweight balls and bumper lanes available upon request. Booming music and flashing disco lights herald a shift from open bowling to neon bowling—special sessions on Fridays and Saturdays when athletes face off or dance off in a nightclub atmosphere. Parties and leagues bond bowlers of all ages via lively recreation, and fundraisers enlist the sport to benefit worthy causes. On-site snacks and libations fuel sporty endeavors until closing time or the nachos gain self-awareness.
Inspired by New York shops, Bagels Alaska treats its patrons to delicious bagel-based delights made with traditional, boiled and hearthstone-baked dough. Baristas squeeze gourmet espresso shots from locally roasted beans, and hot breakfast sandwiches feature more egg, meat, and cheese combinations than an omelet-themed Rubik's cube. Alaskan calzones envelop Alaska-inspired fillings—the Fairbanks, for example, contains the city's three officially sanctioned ingredients, tri-tip beef, horseradish, and swiss cheese. Fans of both pizza and bagels can savor both simultaneously by ordering one of the café's hand-tossed, stone-fired pizzas, which recline on a bagel crust in 11-inch individual portions or 20-inch larges.

Blues Central lives up to its name by presenting nights of smoky blues music and preparing a menu of bar fare as rich as the tunes. On Friday and Saturday live shows, guests gather in front of the stage to soak up neon light and listen to the ghostly wail of guitars, a tradition that began when the establishment opened in 1964 on top of the remains of a haunted music school. Open for lunch daily at 11 a.m., Blues Central hosts happy hour Monday–Friday, 4 p.m.–7 p.m., and lists upcoming acts and specials on its event page, including T Harvey Combo shows and open mic night on Sundays at 8 p.m. Onlookers down brews and feast on chicken wings, seafood, and nine types of French dip sandwiches filled with the likes of meatloaf, barbecue pork, and slow-roasted beef with plenty of au jus for dunking.
Black-and-white photographs of old-timey locomotives and steamships aptly signal what?s to come from meals at Seward?s Folly. Here, the culinary team culls ingredients equally from land and sea to create gourmet, chophouse-inspired specialties. Land-wise, cooks marinate charbroiled burgers in Kentucky bourbon and flavor smoked prime ribs with peppercorn and au jus. The sea end of the spectrum, meanwhile, includes Alaskan oysters paired with pepper vodka cocktail sauce and fettuccine tossed with prawns, andouille sausage, and creamy Cajun sauce. Complemented by an extensive wine selection and 16 brews on tap, feasts can either unfold on Seward?s breezy outdoor patio or amongst the bar?s nine televisions.
