Before film reels roll, guests can visit the snack bar for cokes, burgers, and chili dogs, as well as corn popped in the original machine from 1953.

With so many tasty craft beers available these days, it’s hard to settle on just a few. That’s why the bartenders of Idaho Hop House not only rotate the brews inside their six taps constantly, but also frequently update their store’s selection of take-home bottles. Though stocking beers the world over, such as the Belgian staple Leffe, the store focuses on American breweries, such as California’s Stone and Idaho’s Selkirk Abbey. Idaho Hop House’s culinary team emphasizes local ingredients in their versions of classic bar food, such as hand-battered onion rings and beer-braised bratwursts.

When you walk into Pinnacle Sports Grill, there’s a good chance your eyes will jump right to the giant video cube looming above a central brick-island bar. It’s a standout in this flat-screen-filled temple of football, baseball, and basketball, a statement that sports should be taken just as seriously as food. Like the athletes onscreen, the gastropub’s menu covers a lot of ground—pork tenderloin sandwiches, brick-oven pizzas, guacamole-bacon burgers, ale-battered fish ‘n’ chips, Kobe meatloaf, and New York–style cheesecake. If you’re brave enough to try Wild Bill’s hot wings—the hottest available—be sure to have one of Pinnacle’s many craft beers or cocktails within easy reach. As guests make pilgrimages to Pinnacle, they rack up points on the restaurant's MVP frequent-diner card, with every dollar spent on food and drink getting them closer to free meals and a chance to learn the secret Pinnacle Sports Grill handshake.

A personal TV accents every booth at Cheerleaders Sports Bar & Grill, where chefs kick out hearty steaks, half-pound Angus beef burgers, and a slew of entrees to sports fans. Taps at the full bar work overtime filling glasses with 37 draft beers under the watchful headlights of a Shelby GT500E Mustang, inspiring cheers that rise and swell through the spacious dining room with every touchdown, home run, or umpire fight that's broadcast from 1 of 61 TVs. Classics include hand-breaded finger steaks, chicken caesar wraps, and irish nachos and wings; for dessert, the chefs craft caramel pecan turtle cheesecakes and deep-fried Snickers. The aromas of breakfast fill the family-friendly dining room on weekends from 7 a.m. until noon.
