Have you ever walked into a place that you know is where the locals go, it's packed, and as soon as the door closes behind you, every one looks at you? Well, that's what happened when we visited Pete's on a busy Friday night.
The place was packed, and there's not a Hostess Stand, so we made our way to the bar. Waitresses were flying past, not saying anything, then the owner comes out from behind the bar and made us feel like family.
We waited by the bar for a table to empty out, and a couple of barstools opened in front, so we took them. I didn't realize that another couple were waiting for those seats until the gentlemen politely asked me to let him know when we were ready to get up so he and his wife could sit down....I felt terrible and offered to move since they were there first, but he said no worries and we all talked for a bit.
A few minutes passed and a table opened up, and all was well. Some guests at a nearby table chatted with us and gave us their thoughts on the menu. They had been coming to Pete's every Friday for 25 years.....and they were right....the chicken is the best you'll ever have.
They also have all you can eat fish on Fridays....so much food you'll do good to get through the first serving, and it was very good.
Beer is ice cold, the waitress was excellent, and the owner checked on us again a few more times during our stay.
If you're like me, when you travel, you want to try new places. We could have went to any number of Chain Restaurant's in the area, but I'm glad we tried Pete's. Most excellent.
