WIAW At Our Favorite Restaurant

I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before but our favorite restaurant to go to for a nice dinner is Flemings. We had some gift cards and a coupon that we had been saving and decided to celebrate Saturday’s races with a good meal.

Shortly after we sat down the waiter brought over a bread basket. It came with some delicious spreads, although I don’t remember the flavors. I just know they were good.

Of course but this point in the day we were ready for some wine, and there were they huge bottles on display behind our table. I couldn’t really get a good picture without looking super creepy…

We decided to share the “Flemings salad” and calamari to start. They split the salad on two plates for us (I really appreciate it when restaurants do that).

We both got filet mignon. It was huge and so good. By this point I was starting to get full but I was still able to eat most of it.

We shared two sides and they ended up being a little too heavy and cheesy for my liking. Mac n cheese and Flemings’ potatoes.

After dinner it was time for the most important part of the meal: dessert. This is the main reason why we love Flemings. You need to let the waiter know ahead of time if you want the chocolate lava cake because it takes extra time to prepare. We always say that we would be happy going here and just getting this dessert.

 We were stuffed by the end in the best way possible! Once in a while you just need to treat yourself to an indulgent meal:)

Have you ever eaten at Flemings?

What is a dessert that you would be happy eating instead of dinner?

    • Very true, but I have found that when I have “real” dessert now the sugar leaves me a little shaky! I think if the dessert is really good that once in a while its worth it:)

    • Sorry for taunting you! I swear I didn’t mean it:) Steakhouses are my favorite place to eat out. As long as I know that I am getting a good steak, and I can pick some sides, I know I’ll be happy with my meal.

  1. Never heard of it, but sounds like a fun place! Any place that serves bread is a place I will go and come back to!

    Um….pretty much any dessert would do over dinner:) I am a sugar lover. Ironically I never ever get dessert at restaurants though…usually either I’m too full, or I don’t want to pay for a super over priced brownie when I can make one at home hah. But when I am rich…one day, I will buy dessert before dinner!

    • I usually don’t eat dessert out either! I am happy to bake my own stuff so I know what’s in it. But Flemings is one place where I make an exception:)

  2. I’ve been talking about going to Flemings for awhile and have yet to go! You literally ordered the same things I would have- salad, filet, mac and cheese, and dessert. I would be leaving in a food coma but it would be 100% worth it. I miss steak. I haven’t had it since I moved.

  3. I am so glad I am reading this right before my lunch break because my mouth is watering!

    There are few things in this world that I love as much as a good filet mignon! It’s the best special treat! The perfect way to celebrate your awesome racing weekend!

    • Ha! My husband is not good at sharing either! At least when they split the plate for you, you will know that you actually get half!
