On the lighter side, the 5-inch holds 1/3-pound. Hot pepper relish blended from diced cherry peppers is available to add zing to deluxe clubs, roast-beef sandwiches, and veggie subs.

From the two bars at Bart's Lakeshore, panoramic views of Chickamauga Lake stretch for more than 5,000 feet toward distant mountains and the city skyline. These are among the many enticing surroundings at Bart's, where major sports unfold on plentiful LCD televisions, and patrons can play video-game versions of classic games like golf and bowling. On select Friday and Saturday nights, the 21-and-up smoking-friendly bar even converts into a nightclub where live DJs spin Top 40 hits and set their favorite sea shanties to techno beats.
Before busting a groove, chow down on snacks and entrees from Bart's epic menu of classic bar food. Complemented by spirits or cold brews, said feasts range from 8-ounce beef tenderloins wrapped in bacon to hand-tossed pizza topped with ground beef, mushrooms, and housemade marinara. Given its perch right beside the lake, Bart's also specializes in succulent seafood, including helpings of blackened grouper and jumbo shrimp stuffed with crab meat.
Pisghetti's keeps the spice of life alive and vibrant with a full menu of Mediterranean and Italian dishes.

After getting platonic with olive oil, garlic, oregano, tomatoes, onions, olives, and feta, a medium greek pizza ($10.99) romances taste buds with a succession of tasty slices. Cajun shrimp pasta ($10.99) sautéed in garlic and served over spaghetti shouts down grumbling stomachs, which are then surprised when they're sweetly poked by desserts such as baklava ($2.25) or tiramisu ($4.50).
