Set in a space hosting saloons and pubs since 1885, Townline's kitchen churns out a breakfast menu as well as a main menu featuring gourmet pizza and other pub grub. Sports-tuned TVs captivate patrons who supplement pub fare by exploring the bar’s copious list of draft-beer offerings. In addition to giving to community charities, Townline's genial staff spreads its characteristic generosity by frequently honoring competitor's coupons and serving a free drink to those celebrating a birthday or new pompadour haircut.

The cozy interior of George Street Cafe, once known to locals as the Chatterhouse, makes it an ideal place to hang out for a drink or dinner, or munch on items from the lounge menu during the in-between times. Regular events include a rousing karaoke night, vinyl night, and ladies' night, as well as 35-cent wings every Tuesday. Customers can pair their snacks with a glass of wine, or a beer drawn from one of the lineup of taps along the bar. George Street Cafe welcomes family gatherings, private parties, and business meetings.
Karaoke tends to be a special event at many bars, but not at The Bluff Pub and Grille. Here karaoke is welcome any time a patron feels like crooning aloud a favorite song or a business rival?s credit card number on the restaurant?s TouchTunes machine. Professional musicians, meanwhile, often stop by in the summer to rock out on The Bluff?s deck, nestled beside stunning views of the bay. The culinary team takes full advantage of its water view location with plenty of tasty seafood options, including omelets filled with shrimp, crab, and house-made garlic-chive cream sauce. For dinner, chefs whip up everything from broasted chicken with house-made stuffing to handmade pizzas crowned with fixings such as jalape?os and sauerkraut.
At Richard Craniums, the scent of no-frills tavern food mingling with the casual atmosphere encourages camaraderie with plenty of distractions to accompany the tavern food. Patrons cluster on couches in the upstairs lounge, noshing on jalape?o poppers or chicken wings in 12 flavors while they watch the big game or community-theater reenactment of the big game on projection televisions. Downstairs, sportsmen lit by the flicker of big-screen televisions test their mettle at pub games including darts and pool. The staff encourages commemoration above all else; patrons can grab a marker and leave their stamp on virtually any flat surface, and the bar will fill and cap beer bottles personalized with a photo of the customer?s grinning face.
