Philly Pretzel Factory churns out more than 100 million fresh, hand-twisted soft pretzels per year. However, the business wasn't always so big. Initially, it was a one-man operation, and the man in question--current president Dan DiZio--was just 11 years old.

As a kid, Dan loved soft pretzels so much that he sold them on a street corner using an authentic Philly recipe so popular that he often sold out before noon. Nowadays, he manages his inventory better, and the proof is in the pudding: since the bakery's 1998 launch, it has expanded to more than 100 locations. Each outpost serves Dan's signature golden-brown pretzels in assorted flavors, alongside pretzel sausages and bite-sized pretzels, ideal for people with very tiny mouths.

Though the cooks at Taylor's Williamstown reflect a range of culinary traditions with dishes from veggie quesadillas to sesame ahi tuna, classic bar treats remain the core of their menu. They slather char-grilled baby back ribs with signature glazes and top burgers with ingredients such as homemade chili and beer-braised onions. To help wash down feasts, bartenders maneuver around an outdoor cabana deck bar, as well as an indoor granite-top bar, filling glasses with 10 draft beers.

Inside, 15 big-screen, high-definition televisions broadcast the latest hockey, baseball, and football games. In-house competitions also brew during beer-pong tournaments with cash prizes and contests to see who can most accurately read Latin. Over on Taylor's Williamstown's two dance floors, DJs keep guests grooving to an eclectic mix of tunes until 3 a.m. four nights a week.

Barcelona Bistro's Spanish- and Mediterranean-influenced seafood and tapas earned the elegant bistro-style restaurant a Golden Fork award from South Jersey Magazine in 2012. The restaurant lives up to its accolades with a menu built around the varied tastes, textures, and astrological signs of shareable tapas plates, which include spicy bites of chorizo frito or cool forkfuls of clam in cilantro sauce. Tortilla española earns its stripes as a Spanish classic by showcasing fried potatoes and olive oil in a fluffy egg embrace, and entrees of grilled salmon, pan-seared trout, and bright jumbo shrimp exhibit the coastal influences so integral to Iberian cuisine. The BYOB restaurant's crisp, white tablecloths and dark wood seats create a sophisticated atmosphere to impress first dates, and outdoor seating on the brick patio creates a breezy atmosphere to test the tenacity of trick candles.

Housed inside a building originally erected as a log cabin in 1720, Barnsboro Inn has continually operated as a licensed tavern since 1776, pausing only during the prohibition era. These days, chef's' menu of elegant, fresh American cuisine complements the eatery's lengthy cache of craft beers, international wines, and meticulously preserved napkin rings. Upscale steaks and seafood entrees such as flat iron steak served with button mushrooms and chicken piccata with crab assuage hunger; burgers and sandwiches flaunt such accouterments as turkey breast or corned beef reuben.

Patrons make merry amid two bars and three dining rooms sprawled across Barnsboro Inn's historic digs. Inside, full-wall murals depict idyllic countryside scenes of horse-drawn carriages and straw-covered hovercrafts. When weather warms, staff members also dispense Boddingtons and Flying Fish ales on an outdoor patio, where an additional bar abuts numerous umbrella-covered tables.
