We were seated in one of the smaller rooms, which was really cozy. It took a while to browse the menu and make a decision, because there were so many choices to pick from, and all were appealing!
I started with a Pina Colada, while hubby had a Bloody Mary...which apparently was delicious, because he had guzzled half of it before I could take a photo!
We had garden salads which were very fresh with a variety of crispy greens, grape tomatoes, purple onions, cucumber slices, and bits of shredded carrots topped with a light Italian dressing.
Hubby had the baked haddock with seafood stuffing, accompanied by mashed potatoes and a mixture of roasted tomatoes, zucchini, and summer squash topped with slivers of fresh parmesan cheese.
I opted for the Surf and Turf; a wonderful Sirloin steak topped with a homemade Worcestershire sauce and crisp fried onion rings, the mashed potato, vegetables, and:
A grilled lobster tail with drawn butter! The steak was to die for--so tender and that homemade Worcestershire sauce....well, it was easily the best steak I've ever had. And what's not to love about a piece of tail? I also have to mention the seasoned mashed potatoes that were creamy and delicious with their hint of garlic--and I'm really not a fan of mashed potatoes, usually. (I ate every last bite of these!)
With happy tummies, we went upstairs to enjoy the rest of the evening: Desserts and entertainment.
I was not disappointed by the blueberry cheesecake. It was light, creamy and scrumptious, garnished with a few sugared fresh blueberries and half a strawberry!
Hubby had the Tiramisu which was topped with a fresh raspberry. It disappeared rather quickly, and I heard no complaints!
After having our desserts, we were entertained by Paula Poundstone. If you've never seen her, then you have missed a great time.
She is so hysterically funny, I literally laughed so hard I cried!
She has the ability to involve the audience in her comedy and kept a full house (I would guess around 250 of us) in stitches for over 2 hours. And she manages to be that funny without resorting to raunchiness.
After the show, Paula graciously made herself available for photos, an opportunity I couldn.t resist! So here's me and my new BFF, Paula! All in all, it was a perfect evening; exquisite food and great entertainment!
The only criticism I have of the evening is that we were crammed in like sardines for the entertainment part of the night. I know they probably want to get as many ticket sales as possible, but there was hardly any space betwen the chairs. Once you were seated, forget about getting up again. I shudder to think what would have happened had there been a fire. Thankfully, there wasn't.
