Default Anniversary restaurant ideas. Ft worth arlington

So my 12th anniversary is Sunday. Looking for ideas on nice restaurants in the fort worth or arlington areas for a nice dinner. We have been to eddie vs, bonnells, grace and lonesome dove bistro so I am looking for somewhere different. Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

Del Friscos in downtown is good. My wife and I did our 20th there 6 years ago. It ain't cheap but its a cool place and the steak was excellent.

Bob's Chop house in grapevine is great, Perry's in Southlake is also good and has a fantastic pork chop. I know people don't go to nice restaurants to order a pork chop but this is not your normal pork chop, google it.

Have fun!

My vote would be Del Friscos in downtown Fort Worth.

Also agree with tfrye regarding the Perry's pork chop.... it's the only high-end steak house I'll go to and not order a steak.... not that their steaks aren't good, just that the pork chop is that good.

We tend to lean towards Eddie V's on West 7th in Fort Worth. Happy Hour is back in play. If you go, get a reservation for the lounge. Happy hour is 4-7. Jazz band if playing starts around 7.

That pork chop at Perrys will feed a family of four. Great but big

I've heard great things about the Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, but haven't been yet. Bob's is really good. Rustico in Flower Mound is another good and smaller place.

Bob's hasn't been as great the last couple times I've been. Been wanting to try Perry's.

Try “Waters”. It’s another Jon Bonnell owned place for seafood.

Sweetie pies smoked pork chop has taken the place of their steak for me. It's amazing!

If the above steakhouses aren’t enough, try B&B Butcher. Haven’t been to the FW one but all their Houston restaurants are great.

Around here we do Keipersol or 4 winds in wills point but our Ft Worth place is Lucilles on Camp Bowie. We both like that place.

Ditto for Bob’s.

Agree with everything said about Perry’s…including the pork chop.

I agree, Mac's on IH20 and Greenoaks in Arlington is very good and not nearly as pricey as some of the others listed here. B&B Butcher is great.

Del Frisco's for steaks or Perry's for pork chops. Either one has always been great for us. Happy anniversary!
