    Chad's: Bring your flair for Martini's!

    You will find Chad's in an old Victorian which lends to a warm dining experience. I have been her for New Years Eve, dinner for two and even a Smoker (cigars). The service and food has been excellent every time!

    The atmosphere is fun and is soley due to the staff. They are upbeat and will do anything they can to accomodate.

    Chad's is not only well known for the service and food but also their Martini's.

    This is a very popular place with many people packed in for both happy hour and dinner so reservations are suggested. If you must wait the bar area is a very lively social area and, well, the Martini's will help you pass the time.

    Favorite Dish: If you are two, Chad's Sampler Platter is excellent. It contains two of each: Ceasar's Salad, Blackened Filet, Carmalized Halibut, and Chicken Tchoupitoulas. This is more than enough food for two and usually a doggie bag is in order.

    If no one wants to join me for the Sampler than I order the Carmalized Halibut.

    Don't forget to order your Chocolate Jack Daniel's Souffle with your entre because it takes the time you eat your main course to bake it. It is well worth the time, I assure you.
