Three Flags Tavern Dinner

I finally got my birthday wish and made it back to Three Flags Tavern for dinner. Luckily, my parents are big fans and didn't mind going again.

The menu seemed filled with comfort foods, but again I went to the chalkboard in front of me where I first noticed wine specials and realized there was a fish special as well. I can't help it!

I was surprised that both of my parents went for the fried chicken and it was amazing! I admit that I didn't really believe my friends about this dish and I have a terrible memory. It is large enough of an entree that two people can share easily so it must be good for my parents to order their own.

I was also impressed that Patience cleaned her plate since the Shrimp Etouffee appeared just as filling.

The server was kind enough to bring my stepmom and I a birthday treat. Luckily, it was chocolate and my family let me hoard it for myself.

Even though it was a Sunday night, we were quickly surrounded by noisy parties and babies. Odd mix. So I guess it's more tavern than upscale dining? At least it's worth going to for the food and cocktails.
