Pool balls sinking into the pockets of five billiards tables, bullseyes landing on two dartboards, royal flushes sweeping the digital tables of five poker machines. With all the gaming available at Pumphouse Sports Bar & Grille, it's possible to forget to stop and eat. Possible, but not probable, since cooks here coat wings in more than 21 flavors, such as garlic oregano and buffalo ranch.
Equally hearty, the remaining menu includes juicy burgers crowned with cheese curds and bacon, brick-oven pizzas topped with taco fixings, and Wisconsin mozzarella deep-fried in tomato-basil breading. Beneath an antler chandelier, bartenders complement feasts with local craft beers from 16 taps, while five 50-inch HD TVs show the day's biggest games and coaches' best imitations of Edvard Munch's "The Scream." Live music graces the bar on weekends, while weekly leagues meet for billiards tournaments, bean bag games, and, in summer, volleyball on three sand courts adjacent to Pumphouse's outdoor patio and tiki bar.
