Cooks at The Flinn Springs Inn sizzle up hearty pub grub, including cheeseburgers and tacos, as tap masters pour cold draft beers or expertly mix cocktails within a bar and grill replete with exposed-brick walls and leather-topped barstools. Guests can play a game of billiards inside, or make their way to the sprawling outdoor patio to watch live music and college-level math lectures on the stage or hurl horseshoes in the regulation pits. After dancing, singing karaoke, or playing beer pong all night, patrons can return the next morning for pancakes and bloody marys.
Cafe Luna is a family-style, family-owned, galactic culinary ambassador that delivers refined recipes in an elegant atmosphere of pale brick walls, scarlet curtains, and sinewy metal architecture. Appetites are introduced to a menu piloted by raw filet mignon carpaccio with fresh arugula, capers, and shallots ($13) that leads pasta and protein passengers. Handmade pasta sheets form the signature rosetta, rolled with ham and swiss before being sliced and baked in a creamy parmesan ($15), as well as the capelli di gamberi, mingling angel-hair pasta with sautéed prawns ($21). Large hungers can be substituted by the sautéed flavors of vitello marsala, a veal scaloppini in a creamy marsala wine sauce with mushrooms ($21).
At Cheers Bar & Grill, customers sizzle up everything from steaks to burgers and brats, served any way a guest orders. Though they keep pints flowing all day long, the bar transitions into a 21-and-older establishment once the grill shuts down for the night. After that, the remaining crowd bonds over drinks from the full bar. At 1 a.m., the kitchen shuts down for the night to prepare for another day.
Pitchers Sports Bar's cordial bartenders oversee a whistle-wetting selection of 20 draft beers and an array of cocktails, and its kitchen pumps out a broad menu of laid-back savories ready for pairing with a pint or a playoff game. New York–style pizza ($7–$15 for cheese only) comes to tables sporting any of a wide variety of toppings ($0.70–$1.60 each, depending on size) and an appetizing new-pizza glow. Throw yourself into a fork-fueled feast with a chicken caesar iceberg salad ($7), or wrap your mitts around a western bacon burger ($7) or classic club sandwich ($7) to keep them from sending base-stealing signs to strangers at other tables. The bevy of brewskis includes most of the heavyweights of hoppery as well as craft selections from Stone, Ballast Point, and others.
Open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, Lestat's Coffee House curates a menu of café favorites, from sandwiches and salads to coffee, tea, and smoothies. Brave baristas concoct the espresso latte ($2.50–$3.75) and the cappuccino ($2.25–$3.60) using Diedrich coffee. A special menu of house hot drinks soothes the senses with combinations including caramel and Mexican chocolate in the Dulcé Mexican mocha ($3.50–$4.75) and peppermint, chocolate, and a disarmingly attractive sense of sarcasm in the Peppermint Patty ($3.50-$4.75). On the chillier side, fruit smoothies, such as the pineapple-, mango-, and banana-packed Hawaiian Vacation ($4.50), set apart surf-ready stomachs, or sustenance seekers can fill the hungry stomach inside their regular stomach with a succinct menu of sandwiches ($4.50-$7.95), house-made soups ($4.25–$5.75), and salads ($4–$6.50).
