There's never a dull moment at Blue Ribbon Tavern. A colossal beer menu filled to the brim with craft and mainstream brews is a welcoming complement to the hot wings, which arrive covered in a choice from 10 different sauces. The bar also boasts a curated selection of whiskeys and bourbons. The menu features burgers and sandwiches, which are not only delicious, but convenient for those who accidentally left their monogrammed forks at home. Once patrons have conquered their appetites, they're ready to conquer the stage?on Karaoke Thursdays, at least. On Saturdays, the Tavern hosts live music.
Black Bear Saloon roars back at growling stomachs with pub-style American eats dished out amid the cheers and jeers of an energized sports bar. Perched along the walls, more than 25 flat-screen TVs broadcast big games as diners voyage through waves of russian dressing that flow between the Kodiak sandwich's layers of turkey breast, bacon, and swiss cheese. Late-night menus keep guests content past midnight, and entertainment events, such as live shows by DJs and local bands, accompany bites while snuffing out the other senses' plans to go on strike. Staying true to its outdoorsy influences, Black Bear also offers the Cub Campfire dessert—a chance for diners to make s'mores right at their table.
At the bar, 20 beer-tap handles stand ready to tip forward and fill frosty mugs, which staffers slide alongside plates crowded with classic pub entrees. Guests can rub their molars against pulled-pork sandwiches and Cajun burgers or nibble away at Pour House sliders or cheddar nugget appetizers. Diners looking for meatless fare can graze on caesar or roasted-vegetable salads.
Tufted leather booths, exposed-brick walls, framed bear portraits scattered throughout, and personal in-booth plasma TVs. That should tell you all you need to know about Black Bear Saloon, a laid-back spot with the demeanor of a steak house and the soul of a neighborhood tavern. Settle into one of the plush booths and sink your teeth into a Chef?s Presentation flatbread pizza, indulge in a rack of seasoned, rubbed, and slow-roasted ribs, or try a burger on a brioche roll with crumbled blue cheese and saut?ed onions. Any of the above should go down well with an ice-cold beer from the bar, especially while enjoying a game on one of 15 plasma TVs or one of the in-booth sets. Black Bear also features an outdoor patio that?s a perfect place to celebrate a victory or a referee?s new haircut.
The brewheads at The Craftsman Ale House serve up tasty fare alongside specialty microbrews, keeping with their philosophy to "drink local, drink craft." Open for lunch, dinner, and private parties, Craftsmen Ale House also treats eaters to happy hour specials, brewery events, tastings, and Beer 101 classes. Taps flow with eight rotating craft brews, and the beer list comes replete with more than 50 bottles and cans of specialty imports and domestic beers.
Undisputed Sports Bar and Grill entertains a wide array of customers. Being a sports bar, diners can compete in beer pong or settle in for broadcasts of NBA games and MMA fights while they enjoy wings and burgers. However, Undisputed Sports Bar and Grill also keeps patrons moving with music from live DJs, who spin everything from hip-hop and top 40 to rock and Latin beats. The bar has even been known to host glow parties and beach-themed parties.
