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.

It’s difficult to describe a typical trip to 3 Sheets Pub; on any given night, visitors might find themselves locked in a game of darts, dancing to a DJ’s selections, or just hanging out with a guy in a cheese hat. Pitchers of domestic and craft beer flow freely, along with hearty sandwiches and finger foods. Flat-screen televisions encircle the room where the bar quenches thirst, and a red, neon haze filters through various liquor bottles. 3 Sheets Pub also looks after its patrons by offering a free shuttle service that spirits guests home on Friday and Saturday evenings.

You'll never wonder who your server is at Ojeda's Steak House & Bar; they're all sporting bright red ties and friendly smiles. And though the restaurant is dark and intimate, with half-moon booths padded in quilted leather and dark wood paneling throughout, the food's got a hearty personality. Lamb chops and pork chops come crusted in poppyseed and pretzels, while hearty steaks earn flavor from garlic butter and herbs.

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).
