Owner Michael Ward and executive flavorsmith Art Ward craft a menu brimming with outside-the-box innovations on classic American fare. Bacon-infused potato skins ($4.89) make for savory starters or sombrero tassels, priming tongues for the Maryland crab melt's flavor volley of crab cake, tomato, crabby-patty sauce, and grilled texas toast ($7.69). Flame-kissed patties leap atop buns to create the kitchen's meaty colonnade of burgers ($4.19+), and traditional sliced rib eye, grilled peppers, and mushrooms nestle within the wheaty confines of a mayo-lacquered philly cheesesteak wrap ($7.49).
Throughout the week, Bounce-N-Around buzzes with activity as kids scramble and jump over the springy landscapes of inflatable bouncers. Arcade games test hand-eye coordination and aptitude at space invading, and electric kiddie rides—such as horses, cars, and helicopters—bob back and forth in their own area. A mini movie theater provides a scaled-down, all-ages cinema experience, complete with tiered seating.

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.
