Saturday we had no peeps and nothing to do so took ourselves out for a belated anniversary dinner. I was busy searching for a new plant so we hit up Mulhall's Nursery before hand to no avail and resisted temptations a plenty and left empty handed. On to dinner then.
Not very busy for a Saturday night, mostly retired couples and few at that. We settled in with the house wine and appetizers. Shrimp Havarti for me and Brenda had the Cabbage Blue cheese soup. The Shrimps were perfect although pricey at $12 and Brenda's soup, a usual favorite was heavy with caraway making it not as palatable as in the past.
For the entree's Brenda went with the menu item Whiskey Steak while I broke my rule and had the special, in this case a 8 ounce Fillet. The entrees arrived promptly and were cooked to perfection but Brenda complained about the coolness of her food, mine came out quite hot.
Service was prompt and courteous and with the exception of a little over seasoning and temperature of the food, it was all good. Mostly we noted the quiet atmosphere and the age of the patrons. Might have been the time of day as we were finished by 7 p.m. Also it's a pretty expensive place to eat. I know the last time we were at Taxi's with the Fangman's, the ladies were very disappointed in their entree's of scallops (which was no longer on the menu) and the very skimpy portion for the price. I had complained to the owner overall about the service and portions in which he sent us gift cards for a future visit. Lori left their card with us last time they were in town so we used both cards and it still cost me $45 with the tip.
Overall a good meal, a little pricey, pleasant service, good wine list. My Cabernet was especially smooth and spicy (LaTerre).
