Every dish at Showside Grill & Bakery passes through the gaping mouth of a four-eyed beast. The playfully painted service window is one of the many quirky design elements of the eatery's lime-green 75-seat dining room, a fitting backdrop for its eclectic cuisine and variety of live shows. Chefs Michael and Art Ward whip up burgers and hot dogs, seafood, and classic comfort-food favorites such as the open-face hot turkey on texas toast with gravy. The Monday-night Breakfast at Dinner event flip-flops the usual routine with a spread of eggs, hash browns, and pancakes. The prodigious dessert menu, like a slow-loris telethon, seems to stretch on interminably, running the toothsome gamut from truffles to mousse to classic cobblers and cakes as well as a long list of pies both traditional and inventive. Weekends add live entertainment to the mix, kicking off with Thursday-night karaoke followed by the beats of live local bands on Friday and Saturday.

On the first page of Four Seasons Restaurant & Conference Center's menu are two recommendations from the chef: chicken breast grilled in chardonnay, and a bacon cheeseburger. This balance of upscale and comfort foods is, in fact, a theme of the menu. For an appetizer, diners can enjoy calamari, quesadillas, or onion rings with a fancy touch?they're hand-cut, hand-breaded, and acceptable as engagement rings when lightly sprinkled with diamonds. Entrees, meanwhile, range from beef lasagna to flame-grilled filet mignon. Complementing the food selection is a succinct yet diverse wine list, with varietals from California, Chile, and Australia. And their full bar also serves a Raspberry Margarita which has been making waves.

When Jennifer Lemmons was choosing a name for her business, she decided to combine the names of two of her favorite things: Lorelei, her grandmother, and pralines, a delicious treat that inspires fond memories of her childhood. At Lorelines, she and her crew smother North Carolina pecans with their signature slow-cooked buttery caramel to craft authentic pralines just like the ones Jennifer used to enjoy during trips to her grandmommy’s house. Though pralines are the specialty, they also whip up other confections ranging from chestnut pralines and chocolate-covered espresso beans to peanut brittle, chocolate-covered sea-salt caramels, and coconut-apricot pralines.
