I learned so much about this great new restaurant. The thing that stuck out the most is that it is completely community oriented--so much so that there is no closing time posted on the hours. They want their guests to feel welcome and not rushed to leave. They also partner with local charities--for their grand opening, they raised money for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. They also have a small freezer which means that they're always using fresh foods to cook.
They have lots of Specials and Celebrations:
~Daily Happy Hour from 4pm-7pm with $3 Domestic Drafts, $4 Glasses of Select Wines, and $4 Premium Wells
~Girls Night Out Specials: Wednesdays from 5pm to close there are $5 Martini and Appetizer Specials
~Live Entertainment: Wednesdays and Saturdays starting at 7pm
~Save the Date: Summer Celebration July 13-19
We got to try lots of the yummy foods!
We were greeted with a choice of a drink. I chose the Grapefruit Ricky, extra sweet.
It was so good that I had 2 of them!
First up, the appetizers!
These Shrimp & Crab "Nachos" were my favorite appetizer! At first I was cautious because there were jalapenos in it and I don't do spicy--but I just picked them out and they were oh so good!
These Asparagus Fries were also delicious! I love asparagus and anything fried just makes it taste better so this was right up my alley!
And J.T.'s Kettle Chips---you can go wrong with loaded potato chips!
Next up, the entrees
This Shrimp and White Cheddar Grit Cake was my favorite item all night. I'm not a huge grits fan. But the white cheddar in them made them so tasty!
The tavern burger was classic and the fries were cooked just right.
The chicken stack was unique in that the "noodles" in the Carbonara was actually made out of veggies! Yum!
Finally, it was dessert time!
Classic Creme Brulee! I was so excited to see this dessert! (I had previously tried to order it in the past week at other restaurants and struck out each time) The "creme" part was perfectly creamy and the "brulee" was just the right amount of crispy!
If you're thinking of checking out a restaurant and you're in the Waterford Lakes area, head over to Marlow's Tavern!
