On May 28, 1958, Bob Kinnan welcomed patrons to his new bar, Bob's Lookout, with 30-cent beers. Two years later, Bob's mother contributed a concise menu complete with hamburgers, fries, and a porterhouse steak dinner. These days, Bob's joint?now known as The Lookout Bar and Grill ??offers a much wider array of drinks and comfort food. To create their from-scratch meals, the grill's chefs draw on Bob's family recipes as well as their own, which range from jumbo mushrooms stuffed with sausage and cream cheese to burgers infused with Cajun spices.

Not everybody shows up to The Lookout for food, which is now as renowned for its cuisine as its entertainment. The award-winning eatery's outdoor patio stands amid palm trees and a flower garden, not to mention a children's play area, cozy hammocks, and a horseshoe pit. The Lookout's backyard even hosts its very own volleyball court, where visitors can play pickup games or devastate newly-built sand-kingdoms. More festivities await inside, including weekly rounds of bingo, karaoke, and eclectic live music every Thursday?Saturday night.

At Malone's Bar & Grill, a number of the booths, tables, and bar seats have an optimal view of at least one of many televisions decorating the eatery. That means nary a second is lost watching sports and TV shows while patrons down beers, burgers, and cheese curds, or opt for heartier steaks. Doubling as a bar and a memorable dining experience, Malone's pays homage to the neighboring movie theater with deals for guests that take in a movie on the same day as their visit to the restaurant. The owners of the bar and grill routinely give back to the community by hosting fundraisers and sponsoring events such as golf tournaments, motorcycle runs, and 50-yard dashes.
