Since 1984, Champps Americana's kitchen has sizzled with made-from-scratch dishes, satiating sports fans and families with a comfortable atmosphere. Amid sunlit dining rooms, diners seated at wooden tabletops can root for their favorite pixels on flat-screen TVs broadcasting live sports. In the kitchen, chefs prepare pastas with grilled chicken and roasted artichokes, pile buns with barbecued pulled pork and spicy buffalo chicken, and fill soft taco shells with grilled steak. Behind the bar, bartenders whip up specialty cocktails and margaritas and fill goblets with wine and local craft beers on tap.
Whipping up upscale pub grub with expertise, North Ridge Pub pairs reputable fare and a comfortable setting better than a leather couch fitted with a deep fryer. Amid a casual atmosphere that’s blanketed in lustrous wood finishes, patrons can enjoy a welcoming staff and varied dinner and brunch menus compiled with the freshest ingredients available. Hunger-addled visitors can sample specialty entrees such as the Cameron Steak, marinated with soy and pineapple ($13.95), and meatloaf with secret sauce, vegetables, and mac 'n' cheese ($8.95/$11.95). Seafaring visitors and Aquaman can opt for seafood offerings such as the shrimp picante with rice and tortilla chips ($12.95), and handy diners can test-bite a mitt-fitting crab-cake sandwich ($7.95). North Ridge Pub's fully stocked bar serves up high-octane drinks that help fuel discourse more efficiently than Socrates appearing on The Arsenio Hall Show.
Oliver Twist Lounge buzzes with an effortlessly romantic vibe thanks to its candlelit interior, which brims with sumptuous dark-red and maroon accents. Artistically crafted plates showcase Spanish-style tapas crafted from verdant veggies and spicy seafood, and more than 20 specialty martinis and an extensive wine list complement each savory bite. Chefs cook up morsels well into the night, and a jam-packed calendar of entertainment—ranging from live music to belly dancers—propels guests from their perches in the VIP room onto their feet or extremely limber elbows.
