The neon lights, wooden tabletops, and televisions of Quackers Sports Bar and Grill create a fond and familiar scene for many West Eugene locals. The bar has been a popular neighborhood joint for nearly a decade, drawing crowds with pints of cold beer, hearty sandwiches, and daily specials. Bartenders bustle beneath towering shelves of fine spirits, stirring up mixed drinks and passing out plates of chicken wings from the kitchen. Meanwhile, guests compete in games of billiards or linger over drinks on the outdoor patio. Bar-goers can croon out their favorite song or car-insurance jingle during karaoke every Wednesday, while ladies strut their best dance moves and fist-pumps on Saturday night, when a DJ spins tracks just for them.

The fireplace in 45th Grill's cozy dining room offers a Dadaist simulacrum for the grill that fires each Angus beef burger and steak behind the scenes.

Those with even meatier appetites can opt for the 10-ounce top sirloin, dusted with a picturesque snowfall of blue-cheese crumbles ($17.95). The 45th Grill also offers chicken, seafood, and pasta dishes, as well as a Sunday brunch that starts at 11 a.m. See the full menu to scout out potential prey, and call ahead for reservations, as seating is limited.

Grand Central Restaurant and Bowling Lounge also has a second-level mezzanine, where guests can watch games from above or pretend to be gods of thunder.
