For over 30 years, patrons hungry for fresh, local seafood and juicy burgers have made the pilgrimage up to the Poncabird Pub's second floor, clinking frosty beers and cocktails amid a welcoming sports-bar ambience. Underneath the rustic, knotty wooden rafters, 12 TVs broadcast baseball and football games, while sizzling grills broil 10-ounce patties of beef to mouthwatering perfection by helping them get over their fear of open flames. A spacious open-air deck frames revelers underneath fluffy summer clouds or twinkling night skies, and regular DJs infuse nights out with a pounding soundtrack.
The philosophy at Growlers Brew Pub is an open-minded one. That means their house brews can take nearly any forms. The usual menu includes more traditional concoctions such as the Broken Shovel Stout, a midnight-colored beer made with roasted chocolate and black malts; the Kingpin Kölsch, a Cologne-native with a subtle fruit aroma; and the Alleyway Amber, brewed in the traditional French biere de garde style. And then there's the more daring seasonal menu, where beers might be infused with Sriracha or Old Bay seasoning. And rounding out the menu is gourmet bar-fare, such as a fiery chorizo burger, a smoky grilled cheese with pulled pork, and grilled salmon with roasted garlic sauce.
Amid the satisfying clinks of cocktail glasses and the glow of neon lights, patrons at Laurel Station Bar & Grill feast on juicy burgers and steaks, lump crab cakes, and succulent steamed shrimp, all while enjoying the exploits of their favorite sports stars. Over 20 high-definition screens deck the brick walls, broadcasting all Sunday football games and most pay-per-view events, and an enormous projector screen unfolds sporting events and shadow-puppet cage matches in jumbo resolution. Guests belly up to the granite-topped bar for frosty draft beers, or book a private party room to ring in special occasions with good company and hearty pub fare.
All Stars Sports Bar's chefs sizzle up hearty pub grub within a lively eatery boasting a long, sleek bar and a roomy, wood-floored dining area. Recharge stomach batteries with a meaty burger or a cheesy mini pizza while admiring the gallery of wall hangings depicting athletic triumphs and mathletic algorithms. Ice-cold gulps of domestic draft beer, smoothly poured into glasses by one of the enthusiastic and often jersey-clad bartenders, complement chew-infused conversations about stats, fantasy football, or the ancient practice of mascot husbandry.
Crazy Lil’s banishes hunger with a massive menu of meaty burgers, spicy chalupas, and more than 10 kinds of macaroni and cheese. Dairy-loving diners can warm up with an appetizer of Chesapeake tots, topped with crab dip and cheddar jack ($11), before moving on to bacon- ($12) or broccoli-cheddar- ($13) trimmed mac 'n' cheese. The fromage-phobic may delve into non-cheesy specialties, including pierogies and bratwurst served with a spicy bourbon mustard ($11.50), or a chipotle-chicken chalupa, which tastily toasts palates as it twists tongues ($9). Peckish philosophers sate themselves on the paradoxes of Lil’s Hell Yeah burger, whose ground beef, bacon, and sautéed onions come in the mayonnaise-enriched grip of two grilled-cheese sandwiches ($12).
Inspired by early 20th century chili parlors, Hard Times Cafe aims to preserve the tradition of delectable, hearty fare served in a friendly, lively community eatery. Elevate taste buds to new heights with an order of legendary grilled wings in one of five flavors, including original Texas, chili-lime, honey-barbecue, and eternity ($8.99 per order). Hard Times Cafe serves four distinct varieties of chili. The authentic chili mac is served over spaghetti with your choice of accouterments ($7.49–$8.89). Burgers, sliders, and chili dogs are easily transportable by hand or hovercraft, and savory steaks and other suppertime favorites provide more refined nourishment options.
