After the wedding, we all had dinner at the Garden Grill.  We had the whole place to ourselves, which was nice.  It was fixed menu. 


Ceasar Salad with Chicken – this was the most mild Caesar dressing I’ve ever had and was fine to eat, not great, but edible.  I did not enjoy the chicken which was cold and mushy.  Too weird for me.  Ogre agrees.


Louisiana Corn Chowder Soup -this was actually very good. The chowder had carrots, potatoes, and corn -even the kids like it!  It must have been stewed with bacon as it definitely had a slight pork flavor to it.

Beef Filet – you didn’t get to tell them how you wanted your steak prepared.  Ogre’s was closest to medium rare, while mine was closer to a medium to medium well.  I don’t like steak that is not medium rare, I ate the very middle part.  The steak actually had a good flavor and the red wine sauce that was served atop it was also pretty good.  It was served with mashed potatoes, which were good, a plantain chip (which I don’t like) and green beans.

Cheesecake – Our kids love this cheesecake, which is the weirdest cheesecake I’ve ever had.  The texture is nearly that of cake and it doesn’t taste cream cheesy at all.  You have to imagine that it’s cheesecake and then you might be able to say, “Okay, I see it now.”

Service was very good and we had a great evening, particularly after the dinner dishes were put away and we danced the night away!
