Father's Day dinner at The Crab House, Tilapia with potatoes, corn, and boiled egg. Love this place!!!

Really enjoyed the outside experience of dining at The Fountain Detroit, in Downton Detroit. I had the Hand-Cut Fries-kennebec potatoes, thrice cooked with smoked sea salt and service with secret sauce, along with an Italian Sausage.  

Dinner at Southern Belle Bistro in Ferndale, MI - Turkey and Dressing with Potato Salad. Good price, great service. Enjoyed the food 


While on vacation in Florida had to hit up Shake Shack. I had the SmokeShack burger topped with all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry peppers, and ShackSauce, crinkle fries and grape soda. Look forward to Shake Shack opening in downtown Detroit in 2017.


I've always heard of people driving the Keys in Florida, so I decided to give it a try. While in Key West I decided to try the Southernmost Beach Cafe so I could look out at the ocean while eating. The birds walking around the out door cafe was a little strange, but I guess they had a right to be there also.

While at the Beach Cafe i had french onion soup, housemade battered groper fish with coleslaw and fries, and an apple blossom with ice cream for dessert. 

It was recommended that I stay in Marathon, FL on my way to Key West. Took the advise and stayed at a new Marriot hotel on the ocean with a beautiful view and a hammock that I chilled out on. While in Marathon I had dinner at the Island Fish Company & Tiki Bar. I decided to try Conch- the first dish was Conch Ceviche - key limed marinated sliced conch with a mixture of tomato, cilantro, onions, red & green peppers tossed with key lime vinaigrette served with tortilla chips. This is a dish that needs to be shared with more than one person, thankfully I was able to change it to conch fritters which I enjoyed a lot better. For dinner I had grilled shrimp wrapped in bacon, with yellow rice and sweet potato fries. A really great dining experience with an overview of the ocean and also after eating being able to walk along the water and see fish swimming.


I have been promising myself to start a blog of the locations that I like to dine at. I'll be posting pictures and my comments on the locations.
