The Tudor-Craftsman façade of the 102-year-old Glen Tavern Inn has many claims to fame: the former headquarters of Union Oil, a onetime speakeasy, and host to stars such as John Wayne and Rin Tin Tin. However; today, it’s inhabited by Enzo's Italian Restaurant, whose chefs recreate classic Italian recipes. They sling pies into an Old World-style pizza oven, which fires crusts topped with artichokes and pepperoncinis or chicken with pesto and feta cheese to a perfect golden brown. They also churn out pastas such as Sicilian-style rigatoni with sausage and creamy marinara sauce. Exposed wooden beams crisscross the ceiling in the dining room, where each weekend diners can applaud live entertainment or join in by playing their spoons.

The café also sates hunger with an array of handcrafted sandwiches in barbecue, turkey, ham, and fresh egg salad.
Ric’s seamlessly blends together the delicious vibe of fine food and drinks with the raucous spirit of a sports bar.

Off the Hook Mexican Seafood Grill turns to the ocean for inspiration, substituting salsa for saltwater to create dishes that evoke the Mexican coastline. The seaside breeze that dances across the outdoor patio sets the mood for plates of grilled rockfish, golden-fried prawns, and tacos stuffed with tender lobster and salmon. Similarly, seafood burritos replace the traditional steak and chicken with grilled shrimp and the traditional tortilla with a fried navigational chart.
