Riley's Pub & Grill is known for its barbecue ribs, which the chefs cook slowly until the meat falls off the bone alongside piles of cole slaw and seasoned potato wedges. They also pile burgers and pizzas with unusual toppings, such as pulled pork and pickles. The relaxed bar amps up during special events, including live music performances and bingo nights.

The Dog House's endlessly edible bill of eats accumulates a satisfying variety of burgers, dogs, sammies, fish, and fried chicken. Settle disagreeable hunger grievances with the justice of comfort foods such as the pulled-pork sammie ($7), then follow its order to pick up a hefty portion of fried pickles ($6) and deep-fried onion straws ($6). The St. Bernard chicken rescues hungry taste buddies with a fine cut of grilled chicken blanketed in cheese, bacon, and mushrooms ($9), and the half rack of St. Louis–fashioned Rottweiler Ribs ($11) fills diners with a satisfaction paralleled only by watching a Meg Ryan romantic comedy. Guests can also quell burger cravings with one of six options, including The Great Dane, a mammoth patty piled with blue cheese, bacon, and mushrooms ($8), or choose to ebb the rising tide of seafood desires with the hand-battered Fish and Collie Chips ($10).

In warmer months, the whimsical patio at McCarron's Pub and Grill?complete with the sounds of trickling water and lush landscaping?is the perfect spot for a cold one. When the weather cools, head indoors to catch the sounds of frequent live acts and enjoy homemade comfort food from the kitchen, which specializes in burgers, sliders, and sandwiches. On Fridays, McCarron's plays host to karaoke, as well as a weekly fish-fry, so visitors can chow on lightly battered and fried filets before getting up to belt out renditions of Gone Fishin'.

Chef Dennis Lewis of Ursula's Wine Bar & Cafe draws from his cornucopia of seasonal produce, sourced from local farmers, to craft his monthly changing menu. It’s a menu that has earned OpenTable Diners' Choice Awards for "Best Food" and "Best Overall" experience. In the kitchen, Chef Lewis chops greens from local producers, including Twin Pine Farm, Grandmas Bakery, and Pine Tree Apple Orchard, to toss with blueberry-balsamic vinaigrettes and curried, creamy coconut dressings. His monthly updated menu has included appetizers such as goat-cheese gratin with sun-dried tomatoes and spicy red-pepper hummus with warm flatbread. The kitchen team also prepares entrees that are seasonally inspired, like reindeer lawn ornaments and air-conditioner window decorations. An example of this seasonal food is the pork loin rubbed with ancho-chipotle chili and served with pumpkin mashed potatoes and bacon brown butter. The dining area accommodates 39 guests, meaning there are more than three times as many varieties of domestic and imported wines—150 to be exact—as there are guests at any given time. There’s also an outdoor patio, where wine flights can be sipped while plane flights sip the sky overhead.

Wayfarers recline among plush furnishings and soothing décor while inhaling the pleasant vapors of The Hookah Hideout's 50 shisha flavors. Pack pipes with exotic tastes including strawberry, coconut, or chocolate mint before turning attention to action unfolding across the lounge’s myriad in-house board games. Split a single flavor between two people ($20), or call in a second hookah for a tasty combination ($25) and admire the room’s tastefully dimmed lighting or debate the etymological origins of the word “Yahtzee.” As patrons puff, the lounge’s wait staff ventures from table to table with menus of bottomless gourmet coffee ($4), and vending machines dispense hunger-busting snacks.
