For more than 40 years, the foodsmiths at The Pewter Mug have crafted a menu brimming with juicy steaks, succulent prime rib, and fresh seafood, complemented by imported and domestic brews. Grumbling stomachs hush at the sight of starters such as the Oyster Rockefeller plate, which tops five shelled delicacies with bacon and mozzarella arranged in the shape of an oil baron’s monocle ($10.99). Chefs meticulously season and slow roast tender cuts of prime rib before resting the enticing entree beside a starchy selection, such as baked or mashed potatoes ($19.99+), and succulent sirloins tip the scales at either 8 ($16.99) or 12 ounces ($18.99). A trove of seafood treasures arrive grilled or fried, such as the flame-kissed mahi-mahi, which swims through a sea of lemon beurre blanc sauce ($19.99), or the panko-breaded coconut shrimp, which are cooked to a golden brown and served with a chalice of sweet-and-sour marmalade and a diamond-encrusted trident ($22.99).
The cooks at The Spot at Vanderbilt Beach satiate beach-goers' tummies with a roster of made-to-order edibles, including 11 gourmet pizzas, sandwiches, and frozen treats just steps from the beach. Diners can sidle up to a classic disk with a cheese pizza ($12.99), or diagram volleyball strategies by substituting the meatball pizza's ($17.99) savory spheres for bikini-clad competitors. For a more compact lunch, guests can nab a sandwich, including the tuna melt ($7.95) and club hoagie ($7.95). Chicken philly cheesesteak ($10) stuffs buns with poultry morsels, and the famous philly cheesesteak ($10) sports traditional fixings and bread with celebrity-shaped scorch marks. Beer ($3–$3.50), wine, or sangria ($6) can refill barren coolers, and patrons pursuing frostier spirits can chill tongues with alcohol-infused ice cream, scooping up such flavors as chocolate martini and peach white zinfandel ($5.99 for small; $6.99 for large; $10.99 for a pint).

Or break in a new crazy straw by asking it to take the Wonderlic test or by sipping a Peanut Butter Cup, a thick and creamy blend of peanut butter, banana, and chocolate ($4.99).
