From the antler chandeliers overhead to the rustic furnishings and cozy, wood-burning fireplace, everything about The Tipsy Toboggan Fireside Pub encourages visitors to feel at home. Nonetheless, the chefs whip up a roster of elevated American comfort foods, from customizable mac 'n' cheese, Newport necks, house marinated steak tips, stuffed cod to buffalo chicken dip in a bread bowl.”
