Frank's Steaks has all the respectable hallmarks of an old-school steak house: white table cloths, neatly folded napkins, and dim lighting setting the mood. But then there are the crayons. They aren't there to keep kids busy—they're there so inspired diners of all ages can scrawl art onto the butcher paper atop each table. The most compelling works are framed and hung on the walls of the establishment, a fitting goal for diners to strive for when waiting for their mouthwatering steaks to arrive.

The signature Romanian skirt steak is certainly worth putting a crayon down for—the tender, juicy cut comes dripping in a marinade of garlic and duck sauce. A 42-ounce porterhouse, meanwhile, easily satisfies two diners or two medium-sized tanks of piranhas. Desserts also come in generous proportions, featuring smooth sorbets, triple-layer chocolate cake, and ice-cream pies.

The soft glow of flames emanates from the stone fireplaces at Grillfire Long Beach, rippling over wall-mounted wine racks and settling upon diners with plates of herb-grilled pork chops and house-made chicken pot pie. Servers suggest wines from the wine list to complement these dishes as well as herb-grilled pork chop entrees, rich portions of macaroni 'n' cheese crowned with a layer of toasted herb bread crumbs, and the customer's iris color. Live music mingles with conversation during live performances on the weekends.

The chefs at Twain's Chicken & Ribs deep-fry chicken and shrimp and baste slabs of ribs in tangy barbecue sauce to populate a menu of down-home favorites. Diners quell poultry cravings with four pieces of fried chicken ($6.25) or feed a ravenous family with a meal of eight pieces of fried chicken, six fried shrimp, and two large sides, such as macaroni salad and creamed spinach ($24.99). A half-rack of ribs ($10.59) induces salivation with a zesty dry rub, and a basket of popcorn shrimp ($6.95) greatly enhances underwater film screenings.

The menu of Italian comfort foods already lends Mezzanote Restaurant a familiar vibe, but it's the family-style service that truly makes guests feel at home. During meals, platters of veal milanese, chicken parmigiana, and pasta in meaty bolognese sauce can all arrive at once. From there, diners pass plates and serve themselves from the trays while enjoying the lively group-dining ambience. For a pleasant end to the meal, parties can either indulge in the kitchen's homemade tiramisu and italian cheesecake or try to guess their server's height in millimeters.
