Despite its inland locale, Pappy's Grill on 79 models itself after a seaside paradise in the Florida Keys. The dining room's walls open wide to let in evening breezes, which intermingle with the aromas of seafood and bar classics. In the kitchen, he hand-breads shrimp, beer-batters frog legs, and tops thick-cut bologna sandwiches with a sauce forged from a secret recipe known only to the spies hidden behind his grill. His bartending staff whip up island-style cocktails and fill 120-ounce towers with beer, which patrons can imbibe while keeping abreast of the latest Buckeye games or sporting events.

Park Lanes Bowling Center entertains visitors seven days a week with 32 tenpin bowling lanes and eight regulation billiard tables. Its Brunswick lanes feature automatic scoring, freeing bowlers from the bonds of score sheets and the difficulty of adding up Roman numerals. League opportunities are available for adults, and children's summer bowling camps are available for future adults. On Friday and Saturday evenings, lanes radiate under glow lights for lunar-bowling sessions and the snack bar serves up hamburgers, nachos, pizzas, and ice cream to fuel frames.

Gatsby?s offers its patrons plenty of entertainment, from the cheers that erupt from boisterous sand-volleyball games on two courts to the resonating vocals of live bands. Guests can watch live performances from their seats as servers cart around trays filled with ranch-chicken pizzas and jumbo wings deep-fried in housemade Jim Beam barbecue sauce. Other finger-friendly foods include a half-pound Gatsby?s burger piled with saut?ed mushrooms, onions, swiss cheese, and bacon, as well as a deep-fried and breaded pork tenderloin stuffed inside a Kaiser roll. Outside, a fleet of picnic tables provides ample seating, and a nearby sand court proffers games of volleyball to tiebreak sandcastle build-offs. Gatsby's offers two outdoor patios, and hosts a Bike Night on Saturdays.

The 35-foot electric-guitar art piece suspended on the dining-room ceiling at FM Food and Music All-American Bar & Grill reflects the restaurant's musical theme.

When Basil Restaurant opened in 2009, the Columbus Dispatch reported on owner Rhome Ruanphae's inspiration: his mother?s string of successful Thai restaurants?beginning with Thai Village in Chicago?s Wicker Park neighborhood?that she ran with her husband while he was growing up. Rhome borrowed his mother?s culinary mastery for Basil, which teleports taste buds to Thailand with a menu of authentic Southeast Asian cuisine. Chefs gather rice or egg noodles to lay the foundation for many entrees, such as specialty kee mow, a soft or crispy maelstrom of rice noodles with thai basil, tomatoes, and bell peppers. The menu also features a rainbow of curries, soups, salads, and appetizers to keep ravenous diners from eating their napkins.

The seasoned confines of a former antique shop welcome diners to Basil Restaurant, decked out with bare brick and a retro advertisement for ice painted on the back wall. As a glittering chandelier casts light on colorful curries, wine-dark panels of varnished wood gaze at diners from the wall, and exposed lengths of ductwork add a neoindustrial aesthetic without the overkill of steam-powered dessert trays or austere Orwellian maitre d's.
