Happy Birthday to ME!

For my birthday dinner, my parents took me out to eat at Sullivan's. It is a very pricey steak and seafood place (I don't think that is how they are advertised but that was ALL they had). It is in a small center with two other extremely popular restaurants and not enough parking. After driving around for over 10 min and finally being able to follow someone to their car, we got to park. My parents were already there and seated. The hostess told us she would get someone to take us to the table. Well we were standing right by her and she forgot all about us. Each hostess and host that came by she had them do something else. She finally remembered we were there (even told us she had forgotten us) and we were led to our table. The place was crowded but I think that was the style and mood of the place. It has a 20's style theme as if we were in Chicago or New York. They had loud music playing and it was hard to talk. One little funny was when my sister-in-law got up to use the restroom. She had placed her napkin down on the table. One of the servers immediately came by and refolded it for her. LOL!

Each item on the menu was a separate price, so if you wanted a potato with your $30.00 steak you had to pay $6.00 more. Same thing if you wanted a salad. My dad ordered a salad. It was not a salad. It was a head of iceberg lettuce cut into fourths and drowned with Blue Cheese dressing. That was it. Nothing else. Oh and just in case you did not like Blue Cheese…..well that is too bad as they did not have any other dressing. Not even Ranch. Only Blue Cheese. I think this was about the time my mom was not too pleased with the place.

When our meals came, they did not bring mine and brought my brother the wrong steak. We were told it would take over 20 min to cook another so he just ate what they brought him. I had ordered Tequila Lime shrimp. I finally got it and it was un-eatable. I only ate one (I got eight for $24.00). It was too hot. It did not taste like Tequila, Lime or even shrimp. Another worker, not our server told us that it is soaked in red pepper chilies. This would have been nice to know when reading the menu. So even after all this I still enjoyed my night. I am starving and have not eaten anything but that won't hurt me. I can tell you though; no one in our family will ever go to that place again. I think if it were not so busy, it would have been better. I just feel bad that for over $200.00 I did not get anything to eat.

This is a picture of B and me right after we were seated. Before all the mess-ups.

Here is my Mom and Dad.
