Perry Rock Pub's menu tweaks classic dishes and subdues hunger pangs late into the night with hearty sandwiches, meat platters, and specialty pizzas. The ahi poke appetizer swept both the People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice categories at The Signature Event Dishes & Cocktails awards, uniting everyday tasters and arbiters of taste in praise of its combination of fresh fish, fried wontons, and garlic chips ($10.99). Cast out of its native country for public intoxication, the Drunk Cuban jovially piles plates with spiced-rum pulled pork ($8.99), and caramelized onion aioli adds extra gooey goodness to a shaved rib-eye cheesesteak sandwich ($10.99). Savory ingredients perform a synchronized dance atop specialty pizzas such as pesto chicken ($8.99).

Though deft at trick shots, Tyler Voorhees doesn't expect beginning pool players to immediately master the game's intricate physics and geometry. So he focuses on fundamentals during his private and small group lessons at Rockford Billiard Cafe, even filming his students so they can review their techniques with video feedback. From there, pupils can join one of the café's leagues, vie for the top spot in a tournament, or just play a pickup round on 1 of 17 tables. An in-house pro shop even stocks more than 150 pool cues for purchase, as well as onsite cue repair services.

Not everything at Rockford Billiard Cafe revolves around its namesake sport. Darts hit bullseyes, royal flushes trump other hands on video poker units, and catchy tunes resound from an online jukebox. To reenergize patrons after long stretches of playing or dancing, cooks serve up classic bar snacks such as buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, and pizza.

Packed with pub-style amusements and plasma screens, Sports Page Bar and Grill headlines a menu of delectable pub fare and cold drafts to savor within its neighborhood-bar atmosphere. Fourteen-inch pizzas run circles around hunger ($5–$7), and Wisconsin deep-fried cheese curds sate appetites by the basketful ($7.49). The Sportspage Deluxe's double patties with bacon and cheese join with fries and a 16-ounce domestic draft in a value meal or a search expedition for the missing ketchup bottle ($7.99). Sports Page's wing-slingers toss house-prepared chicken in a selection of glazes, including fire sauce, caribbean-jerk sauce, and garlic-butter-parmesan sauce ($0.50/wing).

Although the culinary team at Tempo Italian Bistro & Lounge specializes in traditional Italian dishes, its menu isn't entirely orthodox. Alongside classics such as chicken parmesan and lasagna, cooks top pizzas with cheesesteak fixings and craft Italian-style po' boys with meatballs and housemade marinara sauce. Feasts unfold inside Tempo's dining room or jazz lounge, where local musicians riff and wail until 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday. Besides Italian dinners, Tempo—located in the Best Western Clock Tower Resort—hosts daily breakfasts with hearty options such as cinnamon french toast and fruity mélanges of honeydew and cantaloupe.
