Food Scene
I have not had a bad meal there ever. From appetizers to entrees to pizza to dessert to cocktails - they are exceptional. Great beer garden also. $$
Basta Pizzeria Ristorante

Wide assortment of cuts of meat, great cocktails, and they have a beer barn! It's a fun place to go with friends - they have lots of TVs so this could either be a distraction or a bonus to catch an athletic event. Their beer garden is also quite nice. $$

The interior is quite unique and is reminiscent of a speak-easy, the time period music is either a love or hate at the beginning. The food is of good quality and cocktails are excellent (great place for an old fashioned). $$

If you choose to sit at the "bar" you can watch your food being made by the line cooks. Cocktails are very good here. There is a variety of menu options to serve your budget plus there is a nice beer garden to take advantage of during the warmer months. $-$$

The food here is ok, it's not my top choice to go eat, but it is a unique experience. You make a line and order at a window and they will give you a buzzer that will notify you that your food is ready to be picked up. You will have a server that will take your drink order - so you pay twice here which probably isn't ideal, but the ambiance is great and there are lots of events that happen here. Cocktails are decent and it's a great place to order a microbrew. They have a spectacular beer garden and the whole place is quite family friendly, fits large groups of people, and you can even organize an event here. $-$$

This is a novelty - I think the food is over priced, but you get a beautiful view of the city. Drinks are also on the expensive side but again this is a novelty. $$$

Decent food at a decent price, and they have a large beer list (their cocktails are good too). They have a beer garden and a roof top, it should be noted that food is not served on their rooftop, but they will have live music out there during the warmer months. $-$$

The food and drinks here are of high quality. There is a nice beer garden for the warmer months. Also , TV's in the bar area for any sports you may like to watch. They project games in the "library" section. $$
