It's our wedding anniversary on Thursday and we are going out to dinner.

Have hit quite a few restaurants around here and has been hit or miss.

Can anyone in our area recommend a nice one we haven't ventured to yet?

We've been to
Don Joses - Kenai - love it
Louie's - Kenai - love it
The Bear's Den (now Caribou's) - Soldotna - ugh - spent over $100 and wanted all our money back
Buckets - Soldotna - loved it
Acapulco's - Kenai - UGH

LOL oh yes there too - love those burgers BUT it IS our anniversary so want something w/a little more of a charming atmosphere

There is SkiMos but ate there once and only once -- yish - they're for sale anyway

Went to Frosos-- not bad but kind of like a Gordon Ramsey nightmare menu hahaha

Paradisos is overrated - little food for a large price

Well...take her down to Homer and do the Lands End thing on the spit. Great food, great setting, get a room, enjoy the outdoor hot tub, walk on the beach, nuff said!

You won't find anything close as good as that in Kenai or Soldotna. Trust me.

well Louie's was amazing

If we were to make a trip for the anniversary we'd head to Girdwood and Double Musky - one of the best places we have ever eaten

We'd like to stay around kenai/soldotna.

anything good in the Sterling area Rance? outside of black jacks lol (though guess that's considered soldotna)

btw we saw the ice cream cone building got bought or leased - bout time though didn't look like he was getting much business

I agree with Rance. I do that at least once a season also. Throw in a visit to the Salty Dog. I also like the blank on first name - something Olive in Homer. Another place I like to eat at is 14 miles from Soldotna towards Homer. Not a romantic place but cheap food if you pay cash. Credit price and cash price. Horrible with names. starts with T lodge on right hand side. Sorry about the lack of complete names. Go for the night at Lands End!

If your going to Homer then Capt. Pattie's Fish House (bright yellow building on the right, on the boardwalk entering the strip area on the spit) is good if you can beat the tourist as there is a waiting time but like Rance said "The Lands End" is very good.
