Where Everybody Knows Our Names Deux

With only a small mention on Facebook today, Clyde's of Columbia re-opened its doors.  We got there at 6:15 tonight to an almost full house.  (The restaurant filled up within the hour.)

We enjoyed the excellent service of our favorite server, Will, and said hello to a lot of old friends.  Oh, yea, and the meal was off the charts.

We started with Thai wraps...
We scarfed two down before remembering to take a photo!  :)

Then we shared a roasted beet salad with the most heavenly light dressing, water cress, and a little bit of goat cheese.

Then, my cute husb, had the "Throwdown Burger".  I usually don't eat red meat, but tasted this -- it was scrumptious!

And me?  I had the lobster roll which was as good, if not better, than the ones we had in Maine.

Anyone want my pickle and fries?

We are way, way overdue for dinner. One of these weekends when we're not doing grandchildren duty or something, we must get together again!

That food looks gorgeous! But why call it a "Throwdown burger"? I think I'd make sure I ate it all, not chuck it down on the floor!

and tell me Kathy - how is one supposed to eat those lobster rolls?? Surely not pick them up and bite them?? They'd be all over the place, including one's face! I'm not a fan of shellfish, but they looked most appetising!

OK, I just ate a huge bowl of oatmeal but this post made hungry anyway! Yum! I want that lobster roll. That is exactly what I would have ordered. Looks like they did a really nice job on the place and it's nice that your server was back!

Oh gracious! You've made me so hungry. This looks amazing. Yuuum!
