Saga Hibachi Steakhouse & Sushi Bar's chefs appease appetites with freshly rolled sushi and classical Japanese cuisine prepared via dazzling tableside hibachi preparation. After scouring the oceans in an atmospheric diving suit, chefs utilize fresh seafood to craft maki such as the rainbow roll filled with spicy crabmeat and crowned with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and tobiko ($10), or the fantastic roll with spicy yellowtail, salmon, and avocado, and topped with lobster, jalapeño, and tobiko ($12). Hibachi dinners cook before patrons’ eyes as chefs sear salmon ($19), chicken and scallops ($22), or lobster and filet mignon ($30) before accessorizing meals with two pieces of shrimp, soup, salad, vegetables, rice, and noodles. Black-granite-topped hibachi counters, wooden accents, and intimate lighting all accentuate Saga's modern twist on traditional cuisine.

At Asian Picnic BBQ Buffet, diners gather around each table's personal hibachi grill to cook succulent meats and self-assemble meals infused with the flavors of Korea, Japan, and China. Culinary explorers can meander through a sprawling buffet line to fill their plates and travel suitcases with meats, seafood, veggies, and sauces before cooking personal creations back at their tables. Alternatively, the kitchen prepares predesigned Asian classics including crispy sesame chicken, sushi, and beef curry. Rich purple tones surround patrons as they relax inside cushy booths and debate whether chopsticks or tongs are best for a TV antenna impression.
The bartenders at Brewstone Beer Company have trouble picking their favorite types of beer, so they don’t bother. Instead, they serve domestic and imported pours from all over the atlas, grabbing brews from as close as Sun King Brewing and as far away as the great ale houses of Europe. Each flavorful beer harmonizes with hearty steaks such as ribeyes, new york strips, and sirloins. They also play well with the menu’s half-pound Angus burgers topped with avocado mayo, seared ahi tuna spiced with wasabi mousse, and pasta tossed with spicy chicken and grape tomatoes. Feasts unfold inside a spacious dining room, where a mural of electric guitars presides over roomy leather booths and flat-screen televisions tuned to the day’s sports.
For more than 50 years, the resident chefs at The Penn Monroe have been crafting classic Italian and American cuisine. Muffle neighing stomach horses with a starter of cheese-slathered banana peppers ($8.99) stuffed with hot italian sausage before sharpening incisors on a half-pound bacon-cheddar Black Angus burger ($8.50). Otherwise, grab, slice, or juggle one of The Penn Monroe's many hoagies stuffed with zesty vegetables and deli meats. The italian platter ($12.99) summons a triumvirate of ravioli, angel hair, and chicken parmesan to afford diners the privilege of sampling a wide range of Italian fare without rifling through a gondolier's lunchbox. A septet of televisions pepper the dining area, offering ample opportunities to view various sporting events or set up makeshift living rooms.
Sammy's Kebab House welcomes patrons into its world of Indian-Pakistani fare seven days a week. Diners sit atop wooden chairs as they devour meals ranging from kebabs to curries, all aptly paired with tandoori-baked naan. Art lines the dining area's walls, and a mounted flat-screen TV gives patrons somewhere to show off their channel-changing psychic powers. Sammy's Kebab House's chefs also prepare feasts for special occasions, which can be celebrated in the restaurant's private event space or catered to another location.
Though its sweet shoppe is a new addition, Charlie's has been serving ice cream for over 30 years, long enough to witness both I Love the '80s and its original source material. Try your tongue on one of Charlie's time-honored soft-serve treats in chocolate ($2/medium), vanilla ($2/medium), yogurt ($2.35/medium), or Dole ($2.35/medium) in a cake cone. Charlie's can also add any of 36 flavors, including butterscotch, espresso, cheesecake, mango, and many more into any of its soft-serve flavors. Or opt to sharpen your teeth on two scoops of classically flavored hard-serve in a cake cone ($2.25). Sugar-free options in butter pecan and fudge ripple help keep discerning diets in tact. Ice cream is also skillfully injected into cakes, pies, and cookie sandwiches, bridging the gap between Charlie's old and Charlie's new with a filling more satisfying than caulk. Swing by the sweet shoppe portion of the dessertery to pick up some home-style baked goods, such as cookies, brownies, crème horns, muffins, tarts, apple dumplings, cakes, savory pepperoni rolls, and more. Pie, cake, and other large orders must be placed 24–48 hours in advance.
