“Atami has a sushi bar and traditional Japanese restaurant menu in the front and hibachi in the back. We've been here many times and the hibachi chefs are very entertaining, although hibachi is a more expensive night out than most other restaurants in the immediate area.”

“Another one near the farm and it's a good one for burgers. Voted about a million times the best burger in the area, Koppe Bridge has been around for a long time and for good reason. We recommend the 1/2 lb burger loaded how you like it (share it with a friend if you want a 1/4lb because the thicker burger is much nicer!).”

“Where we go for burgers, mainly because their sweet potato fries and aioli are a favorite (as well as any of the other fries!). Century square is a perfect spot when the whether is good, there’s a green space for kids to run around and lawn games. On the weekends there’s often yoga in the mornings and live music at night!”
