Default Another Great Lunch OBrien's gets **** Stars

I had a lunch appointment today, and we went to OBriens Bistro. DANG.

Very nice place. I had sauteed Shrimp and Scallops over Angelhair, with a heavy cream seasoned roasted garlic sauce. It was an extremely great lunch. I would recomend it to anyone. The atmosphere is very good as well. Nothing about my experience was below 4 star.

It is located on the north side of Bayou Blvd. between 12th and 9th, in a small strip mall.

I work in Pensacola and I have to eat lunch out everyday or not eat. Over the past year I have found my favorite places for lunch and I found a new one today that I am sure I will revisit often.

Garbo,

Great place! I love going there and ordering the special before they tell me what it is. It's like getting a present in the middle of the day. Have not been disappointed yet.

Not many places would I order the special and not know what it was before I ordered, but I could see doing that there. It is obvious that there is a huge amount of attention payed to the details at that restaurant, and it shows up in the food quality. I was very impressed, I don't believe that their are any shortcuts takenin that kitchen.

Geez Garbo- you been missing out on that one. BTW- The hot gal that's the hostess- My wife's identical twin sister. Yes my wife is sexy hot at 33 and 3 kids later. :baby :baby :baby I am very lucky. Actually it was my wifes sister that had the hots for me in high school. OH- the twin fantasies...but nothin ever happened. :banghead Probably glad it didn't cuz that might be a problem now.

Nothing wrong with fantasizing, right? Maybe? Ok- it's wrong. But just a little. :doh

If we are talking about the same host that seated us, you are a very lucky man.

Gosh- forgot to mention- The owner/chef Jim is a very nice businessman and really takes care of his employees. He has provided them with tickets, accomodations, days off, vacation time and free food. He once paid for the hostess (my wife's sister) for a fully funded trip to Vegas for her and a pal. Jim also uses only the best ingredients- from seafood-to meat- to produce. His cakes and pies are the best, too.

Glad you enjoyed- I will tell Jo'el (the hostess) of your compliments and to pass them on to Jim.

Please do pass my highest regard to both of them. Places such as that are not on every corner. Jim has done well.
