Our 36th anniversary was last night. We went out to dinner at the Regency Room in the Hotel Roanoke.
We have tried to go on several occasions, but they were always booked. Of course, we always called on a holiday, when we had family visiting. Our waitress suggested we book two months before any big holiday, like Mother's Day or Valentine's Day.
Speaking of our waitress, she was also from Buchanan. It's not every day you meet a fellow Buchananite. Is that the correct term? Bacchanalia? OK, I know that isn't the right term! Or this town would be way more fun. She was friendly, outgoing and accommodating. Great service.
My filet mignon was tender, perfectly cooked to order and the wine reduction was sweet and just the right amount. Lee said the crab cakes were the best he's ever eaten. I mentioned that it was our anniversary and they gave us a lovely dessert, complete with Champagne!
The dinner was superb and I can highly recommend the Regency Room. We have eaten several times in the Pine Room Pub and it was great. But the Regency was exceptional. We are already making plans to go back and try some of the other entrees that we didn't choose.
