Flanigans, Lake Worth, FL

After the Adventure at Red Lobster we decided on Flanigan's for dinner, and we were NOT disappointed.

We arrived at the restaurant just about 7:30, it wasn't crowded, and we were sat by the hostess right away. Because of the problem at Red Lobster we decided to "time" our servers and see just how fast or slow they really were. With in a few moments of being sat at our table, we were greeted by a server who said she'd be right with us. Less than a minute or so later, she had taken out drink orders and gave us some time to look over the menu. Long story short, the service was MUCH faster than the other restaurant we tried this evening.

Food wise, we shared some Joe's Rockin Rib Rolls as an appetizer. The wifey had the Dolphin Francaise w/ dirty rice and I had the Lemon Chicken Pasta. The fish was light and flaky and the dirty rice was filling and had a savory after taste. The lemon chicken pasta (as usual) was great. I love the lemon garlic dipping sauce it's got a really rich and unique flavor, that compliment the chicken and pasta nicely. The portion sizes were large enough for both of us to need to-go boxes.

For people who've never been to Flanigan's before, should know this this a laid back kind of establishment. There are all sorts of decorations on the wall consisting of picture of people fishing,having fun on the water/boats and other nautical themes. One of my favorite things about Flanigan's is that they have trivia cards (usually Trivial Pursuit) at every table. It's a nice way to spend some time while waiting for the food, or if you need an "ice-breaker" for any sort of date type situations.

Overall we had a great time out, which was a nice change from how the evening started

  1. Happy your date night ended on a high note! The only time I have been to Flannigans I enjoyed it.

  2. We used to go fairly regularly, but while it is a kid friendly restaurant, it's not exactly "baby" friendly. That being said, we've got a nice collection of cups from here. They're dishwasher safe too! :D
