Hamlin Pub's grill gurus craft a hearty menu of burgers, meaty entrees, pizza, and salads while tap maestros fill chalices with libations from an extensive beer and wine list that include 15 draft brews. Kick off meals by taming a stampede of flying bison with a starter of buffalo wings ($6.99 for eight), which comes with one of six signature sauces spanning the spice-level gamut. Then, move onto a more sizable spread, such as the half-pound Angus classic burger ($6.49) or the classic Reuben, a masterpiece of corned beef brisket and sauerkraut painted with thousand island dressing on a rye bread pallet ($8.49) for a culinary creation more edifying than a mustard slathered American Gothic. Diners can tongue dive into Hamlin’s cheese pizza that's spun out with homemade dough and sauce ($6.99–$11.99) and is customizable with a bevy of toppings that include pepperoni, anchovies, portobello mushrooms, and jalapeños ($1.25–$2.50). The beer-battered fish and chips ($10.99) sates pub grub cravings otherwise quelled by meditating on bangers and mash or flambéing a pint glass.

Sleek red and yellow lighting illuminates crisp, modern décor inside 7 Bar & Grill's 6,500-square-foot space, where chefs whip up sushi, sandwiches, and steakhouse fare served in a dining room, an upscale lounge with a bar, and a patio. Twosomes and foursomes peruse the eclectic menu for nigiri sushi and specialty rolls such as the Great Lake, an amalgam of spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, and barbecue eel huddling under albacore tuna. Thai cream and guacamole hike down the Asian nachos' mound of wonton chips, uniting international cuisine like soup served out of a globe's hemisphere. 7's Cajun pasta slides sausage and shrimp between ropes of fettuccine, and a sheath of sweet garlic chili glaze protects 7's salmon. While imbibing martinis during special-occasion or casual dinners, diners can saunter past 16 flat-screen TVs en route to the eatery's upscale lounge area, which reveals a 360-degree view of the main bar and fellow patrons' napkin-folding habits. 7 Bar & Grill also hosts private events, including birthdays, holiday parties, and more, for groups as small as ten or as large as 250.
