Stevi B’s pizza-crafting professionals toss together hand-made dough, original sauce, 100% real cheese, and fresh, hand-selected ingredients to construct traditional and anomalous pies within a festive buffet setting. Ogle the menu before lining plates with handmade bread sticks and slices from specialty pies, such as the bacon-sprinkled loaded baked potato pizza ($6.99–$8.99 for carryout) or the mac ‘n’ cheese pizza ($6.99–$8.99 for carryout), a culinary fusion of alfredo sauce and elbow noodles that invoke childhood memories of singing about Yankee Doodle Dandy's mistake of sticking a blue box in his hat and calling it an authentic pasta dinner. Stevi B's dough-slingers will also custom craft your choice of pizza toppings. The smorgasbord of cuisine allows guests to choose from a bevy of regular round, crusted fare, a salad bar, and a slew of dessert pizzas that includes chocolate bavarian cream and apple crisp ($4.99–$6.99 for carryout). Buffet prices typically range from $3.59 for kids to $5.99 for adults, not including drinks ($1.59–$1.99).
The Tavern is a brand new establishment that takes pride in providing an all-American menu and an all-star atmosphere. The professional and attentive wait staff ensures pleasant experiences, while executive chef Mike Vinson supplies diners with heaping helpings of soups, salads, sandwiches, steaks, burgers, pastas, and more. Fickle appetites are convinced to stick around with appetizers such as the Frickle, deep-fried dill pickle slices paired with jalapeño ranch ($5), or the Foghorn Sliders, pulled, smoked chicken bathed in barbecue sauce and buried beneath cheddar cheese ($7). A black Angus burger will kick off an unforgettable meatsperience; the Tavern Monster is a prime example, with an 8-ounce patty smooshed between two grilled-cheese sandwiches with pepper bacon, a house bistro sauce, and all the fixings. Real madcaps of meat will want to attempt the Incredible Tavern Monster Double Stack, a burger as big as its name ($13), where successful, complete consumption earns diners a reward of a picture on the Wall of Fame and a pitcher of beer on the house. Less daring digestive tracts can opt for the grilled salmon dinner plate, prepared with a bourbon honey glaze and a choice of two sides ($14).
The sandwich-smiths at Momma Goldberg's Deli populate a mouthwatering menu with stomach- and hand-filling sandwiches. The steamed Momma's Love banishes hunger boo-boos with roast beef, ham, and hickory-smoked turkey cradled within a seeded bun (a $5.09 value), and the reuben stuffs waiting mouths with corned beef, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut accouterments (a $5.09 value). Pan-roasted slices of turkey mingle with a crowd of pepperoni, american cheese, and pickles atop a honey-wheat bun to create the Gobbler (a $5.09 value), and four of Momma Goldberg's salad toppings fill the Veggie Rider's pita encasement (a $5.09 value) like unhappy thoughts of carnival games fill a sentient stuffed animal's mind. To keep meals fully customizable, customers can temporarily don a sandwich architecture cap and draft their own edible skyscraper from an assortment of meats, cheeses, and breads approved by the local zoning commission (a $5.19 value).
Traditional Jamaican flavors abound in Island Paradise's casual dining room, where a predominantly Caribbean staff revs up the sense of authenticity. Amid bright red banquettes and paintings of the tropics, tables populate with coconut-dusted fish fillets, jerk chicken, and spicy marinated pork. After diners pass around entree plates of oxtail and curried goat, they can bury forks in a sweet Jamaican dessert or utilize the eatery's dangling bead curtains as guitar strings for a three-piece zydeco band.
My Father's Place dishes out a vast menu of Italian classics including pizzas, pasta, subs, and calzones.

The Spud-Nick pizza allows eaters to bask in the innovation of Italian cuisine with sliced baked potatoes, crumbled bacon, chives, cheese, and sour cream ($15.99–$17.99). Other pizza options draw inspiration from Hawaiian, Texan, Mexican, and Greek fare, and a single slice of pepperoni pizza ($1.69) satisfies classic cravings. Gear up athletic-level appetites for the lasagna dinner, which opens with a preshow salad and arrives with garlic bread at the sidelines ($7.99). Thoughtful chefs cover genoa salami and spiced ham with a provolone blanket on the cold italian sub ($5.29).
