Most Inspired / Interesting Restaurant Atmosphere

The Lakely (516 Galloway St., Eau Claire) a farm-to-table restaurant in Downtown, takes the win in this question with its eclectic, local décor inside and charming courtyard patio outside —  even the world traveler is sure to feel at home here. The Classic Garage (2111 Third St., Eau Claire) features classic ’50s diner details like checkered floors, generous booths, and red, white, and polished chrome throughout the décor. Zip over to Altoona’s River Prairie Development to visit Cowboy Jack’s (1432 Front Porch Place, Altoona), where you’ll find a blend of TGI Friday’s unique décor and Texas Roadhouse’s legendary fun, Western atmosphere. — Jen Ekblad
