Bella Luna Wood-Fired Pizza

Neapolitan-inspired, thin-crusted pizza is baked at 900 degrees in a wood-fired oven and topped with artisanal ingredients locally sourced by nearby farms. Chef Colin rounds out the menu at this farm-to-table restaurant with handmade pastas, fresh salads and sandwiches, and decadent desserts. The bar features a wide selection of local microbrews and hard ciders on tap, in addition to choice wines and artisan cocktails. You can bring a slice of Bella Luna to your party or event by reserving Bella Festa, a fully restored 1950s classic truck complete with a wood-fired oven and four-tap draft beer system. more

Benny Sorrentino’s Pizza

Benny’s is known for their incredible 28” pies, which they claim are large enough to feed two whole families. Not to worry for those who can’t handle such an enormous meal, they also sell pizza by the slice, although the slices alone are so large they have to be served on two plates. Their menu features classics like cheese, pepperoni, and sausage, while their specials spice things up with new and fresh offerings like pulled pork and jalapeños or garlic mushroom. They also offer a wide variety of drinks ranging from every soda imaginable, lemonades, teas, and juices to a list of domestic beers and ever-changing local ones. more

Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack

Walking into this restaurant feels just a little bit like walking into a funhouse, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Chandeliers made out of Mickey’s grenade bottles, old doors hanging on the walls, and a rubber chicken standing guard over the bar are just a few of the things that makes Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack so unique. Known and loved for their famous Sticky Nuggs, fresh fried chicken served with one of their delicious sauces in a Chinese takeout box, Billy Jacks knows food. Here you will find a variety of choices that includes salads, fresh oysters, and house-made donuts. Every Thursday is “Nugg” day where their signature dish is only $4 — not a deal to miss! They also offer weekend brunch with choices like chicken & waffles benedict, biscuits & gravy, and breakfast nachos, as well as unique drink specials like mimosas, Bj’s bloody mary, and frooty tang.  more

Clementine & Ruby’s Lounge

This concept is infused into every part of the business, from the changing menus and art-lined walls to the band line-up. Clementine always tops the list of great places to see music in town. With two stages for live music performances - upstairs or downstairs at Ruby's Lounge - they bring in local bands and bigger names on a regular basis. more
