Valentine’s Day

by Susan Neuhalfen

If you’re looking for some good Valentine’s Day ideas for you and your sweetheart, there are a variety of different ways to spend the day while still staying close to home.

Shoal Creek Tavern
1701 Shoal Creek Dr., Highland Village 972-317-2250
This is just an all-around great restaurant. It’s casual, it’s fun, the food is fantastic. The biggest problem will be deciding what to have. Just make sure to share. For those still sticking to their New Year’s resolution, Jesse James has his own JJ mark on the menu with dishes that he recommends to stay on track. Start with the smoked Old Fashioned. You won’t regret it.

Savory Bistro

2650 FM 407, Bartonville Town Center 940-584-0255
At Savory Bistro on Valentine’s Day you will have your table for the night so there’s no feeling rushed, it’s just a calm, romantic evening full of great food and wine. They make sure it’s a special night for their customers by serving a wildly romantic chef tasting menu with paired wines. They are taking reservations and have since before Christmas so you’d better call now.

Cloud 9 Spa and Salon
1651 Justin Rd., Flower Mound 972-317-4384
His and hers pedicures are always a nice way to start a date night or how about his and hers massages (you won’t be in the same room, but you’ll be relaxing at the same time)? There are also facials and other amenities and the atmosphere is very comfortable for men so there’s no chance he will feel uneasy. It’s a wonderful way to relax together.

The Wildhorse Grill
9400 Ed Robson Blvd., Denton 940-246-1080
This Texas style ranch has a beautiful, hunting lodge atmosphere with amazing food. It’s warm and cozy and you won’t have traffic problems or parking issues because you’re in the opposite direction of the busy shopping areas.

Logan’s Fish House

721 E. Hundley, Lake Dallas 940-498-7711
This is a more casual date night, but just because you can dine in jeans doesn’t mean the food isn’t first class. You can dine on ahi tuna but you can also enjoy all-you-can-eat-catfish. Whatever you do, don’t miss out on the hushpuppies.

Prime Farm to Table

5810 Long Prairie Rd., #200, Flower Mound 972-539-1902
Tucked away in the plaza behind Compass Bank, the food is not only upscale but very unique. The menu is created daily depending on what is fresh from the local farmers so your food choices are always different and always fabulous.

Barley and Board
100 W. Oak St., Denton 940-566-3900
Located in the Denton Square the atmosphere is amazing and you can get anything from a cheeseboard to slow roasted port tenderloin. They also have a huge variety of beers and cocktails. Make sure you have reservations…and not just for Valentine’s Day.

Moviehouse and Eatery
951 Lone Prairie Rd., Flower Mound972-355-6363
The food is really good along with a full bar and endless popcorn. Enjoy the movies without kids this time and see something rated higher than G. You definitely need a reservation so go to themoviehouse.com/flowermound/movies to purchase tickets.

The Table
3701 Justin Rd., #150, Flower Mound 972-874-1010
If you’re looking for downtown Dallas quality without the drive, this is the perfect place. The food is extraordinary. They offer everything from pierogies and schnitzel to pan seared Scottish Salmon. This restaurant is usually booked well in advance…and for good reason. Make reservations now.

Hannah’s off the Square
1111 W. Mulberry St., Denton 940-566-1110
Located just off the Square in Denton, Hannah’s is described as casual, fine dining but it truly is a romantic, beautiful restaurant with extraordinary food. Call in advance for Valentine’s Day reservations.

Verf’s Grill and Tavern

2221 Justin Rd., Flower Mound 972-317-3390
The extensive menu at Verf’s carries everything from steak and seafood to pasta and enchiladas and all of it is scrumptious. They also carry a full bar and a long list of wines. It’s a meal you won’t soon forget!

If you want to try something different for Valentine’s Day, this is it. Race against the clock to put together the clues and escape one of the many themed rooms. All of their escape rooms were designed by a former Army Ranger intelligence officer turned undercover police officer so these rooms are based on real-life mysteries, offering you and your Valentine an unforgettable night. It’s also a great way to meet people if you don’t have a date.

Cinnamon Creek Ranch

Here’s a new twist to Valentine’s Day: Couples by the Creek which is date night at Cinnamon Creek Ranch (and it’s not just Valentine’s Day, they have it every month). Have a great time with archery including archery tag and archery hover ball. The food is spectacular, prepared by owner Joe Musacchio and it’s BYOB. At $100 per couple for food and archery, you just can’t beat that.

Coyote Drive In
1901 Midway, Lewisville 214-222-9208
Cuddle up with your date in the car for a drive in movie. Bring a blanket and some snacks and you’ll have a night you won’t soon forget.
