Special Spots around Anchorage

We did make it to the Double Musky and it was great food. The outside of the restaurant was rather plain but the inside was like a horder's dream. So just order the food and ignore the atmosphere.
We did also make it to the Kenai Fjords tour and took the day trip (company sponsored). There were so many animal to see. Thanks for your suggestions.

Around the loop from Jackson to Yellowstone in July.

My husband and I are doing a whirl wind tour of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, starting in Jackson. I am looking for reccommendations of good eats, all price ranges, even road side stands. We have our hotel reservations from Jackson to the top of Yellowstone and back, so anything along the way will help. Thanks.

Special Spots around Anchorage

My husband and I are heading to the Alyeska Resort next week. We will have a car to hit the best spots. We are looking for the hole in the wall seafood restaurants or road side stand for the freshest lunches or snacks. Can anyone give us some suggestions? Is there also someplace we should visit in the area for a day trip?

Business Dinner in Charlottesville, VA

My husband spent $45 per person which includes a Caesar salad, a choice of Petite Filet, Griled Chicken, or Salmon. Side dishes of Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli. Dessert of Creme Brulee. Served with Tea and coffee. This is located under the Banquet Heading then Dinner Menu on their website. My husband decided to raise his price per person due to the quality and atmosphere as well as the compareable prices of other restaurants.

Business Dinner in Charlottesville, VA

Thank you for all of the suggestions. My husband decided to go to Downtown Grille. The group had dinner in the private room, with excellent service and wonderful food. The Grille offers a choice of dinner options for large groups which made it easy to plan and calculate for accounting. He highly reccommends the restaurant and will use again the next time in town. And if staying at the Omni it is just steps away.

Business Dinner in Charlottesville, VA

My husband is taking 28 of his managers to dinner. But where should he go? He wants a good restaurant that ChowHounds would frequent. Price range should be around under $25 per person. If possible, they are staying at the Omni and would like to walk to dinner.
Thanks for your help, can't wait to see what you come up with.

Family trip to Lancaster, PA for Dutch Wonderland...

Thanks so much for the suggestions. We are going this Friday, so depending on how tired the kids and grandparents are, we might make it to the gallery crawl. So downtown is the place for good food just the kid friendly kind is the best for this situation. We will look into the Alley Kat.

Family trip to Lancaster, PA for Dutch Wonderland...

We are heading there this weekend and as wonderful as amusement park food can be, I am looking for a real meal with the kids after the park. It will probably be dinner time on Friday. Do you have any suggestions for a meal in the area, and not the all you can eat buffets. Thanks for your help, my Chowhound friend always suggest the best places!

Need Suggestions for NS Dining.

We made it by the Lick A Chick restaurant as well, couldn't go by without trying it out. The name was what caught our eye along with the Lick A Treat Ice Cream Shop across the street.

Need Suggestions for NS Dining.

I would like to thank all of the chow hounds for their suggestions. We had a great time and traveled 1500 miles around Nova Scotia. We completed a figure 8 of the island and ate some wonderful food. Here are my suggestions and comments regarding our stay:

Halls Harbour Lobster Pound - food so good we had to come back again the last day of our trip to have seconds. We had wonderfully cooked fresh lobster - love that you can pick your own and carry it to be cooked. We ate 8 pounds of lobster in the two trips! The entertainment value of the tide is a great thing to witness!

Digby: Fundy Restaurant - It was alright, not the best meal but the view was neat to see all of the scallop boats in the harbour.

Halifax: We stayed at the Marriott Harbourfront - great place if you are looking for convience. We ate at Salty's Restaurant on the patio. Food was alright as well, another great view and easy access since it was right next door. Best thing was COWS ice cream, it is worth the wait. The line never went away, I guess that's why they are open from 10am - 12pm. Extra creamy, full of fat, ice cream!!!

Pictou: We took the suggestion of a Chowhound and ate at Murphy's Fish and Chips. Great fish, lightly battered (like tempura) crispy on the outside and large moist fish inside.

Musquodoboit Harbour: Another suggestion from a Chowhound - Harbour Fish and Fries, a little red house on the side of Hwy 7 across from a little train museum. GREAT LOBSTER ROLL. It was served in a bun like a hot dog roll - little bread and lots of lobster, with the addition of a little piece of lettuce for crunch. Again, so good we came back to seconds. Fish and chips were good, more like a funnel cake batter - crunch on outside but a bit thick.

Cheticamp: 15559 Main St. Hometown Kitchen Restaurant. We stopped for lunch and we had the best BIG mussels on our trip. And they served it with garlic butter, in my opinion better than just plain butter. And the price was great at $6.95, should have ordered 2.

Ingonish Beach: Stayed at the Keltic Lodge. Beautiful place, just a warning - no A/C in the main lodge. The casual restaurant was ok for dinner, nothing to write about.

North Shore: We stopped for a mid morning snack at the Clucking Hen Restaurant on the side of the Cabot Trail Road. Red house again with a screened in porch. They had a little bakery counter where we got a "Dumpling" it was like a cinnamon roll but instead of cinnamon it was strawberry rubarb filling and an extremely soft roll of bread. Very good!!!

Baddeck: We stayed at the Invernary Inn - Great place on the water. We ate that night at the Baddeck Lobster Suppers. For $30 per person you get all you can eat mussels, chowder, salad and dessert as well as a 1lb. lobster.

So thanks again to all the Chowhounders for their suggestions and I hope this will help the next foodie as they travel through Nova Scotia.

Need Suggestions for NS Dining.

I have read other suggestions for dining in NS. Some seem to be a few years old. I would like to know where to eat while we are visiting at the end of July. We will be making the loop and traveling through Halifax, Yarmouth, Digby, Pictou, Cape Benton & places in between. I would like to know of any lunch stops - good local spots, seafood especially. Then also the best dining for a nice night out. We know we will be filling ourselves with as much lobsters and scallops we can find! Thanks for all of your help.
