Restaurant Impossible Visited ... Alexis Style

It's not often Rick and I agree on a TV program, but Restaurant Impossible is one of the shows we both enjoy!  Now you all know I love to cook, I wouldn't call myself a foodie but I do love to try new recipes and also restaurant.  Last week we watched Restaurant Impossible on the Food Network to find it was a restaurant here in Washington State.  Rick looked it up and found it was about 40 minutes from us.  He was so thoughtful and made a plan for us to go this Sunday when we both were off from work.

I was so excited to ONE go out and TWO visit a famous place!  Now we haven't gone out in many many months for dinner due to a very limited budget.  

The Waitress from the episode & me!

We went to Whiskey Creek Steak House in Keyport, Washington (close to Bremerton).  It was a very cute restaurant, they did a great make over and it was so cool to see what you saw on tv in real life.  It was really small, which on TV I never would have guessed that.  You could tell the 10 grand was not used on the bathrooms.  They were a little run down and I must say it scared me a little that a space heater was blowing on my rear while trying to pee :).  They had a great menu to choose from, we didn't order a steak but people around us did and from what I saw everyone ate every bite.  I believe there was only one cook in the kitchen so it took a little bit to get your food but really I didn't mind it was nice to hang with the family and talk to the staff. LOVED our waitress who was featured on the show and she made us laugh the whole visit.  The prices are a little expensive, we ordered 3 items (boys shared due to not feeling the best) so our bill came up to around $50 which in the previous months would be around 80% of my weekly food budget so it was nice to splurge!  Rick and I thought it was a great place and we actually are planning a date night when we can go back with out the kids, then Rick can order that steak he was drooling over!!




On our way home we decided to head over to Seattle to take the long way home.  That way we could take the ferry and let the kids run around and have a little fun!


Hope you all had an amazing weekend and a wonderful day!

  1. Super cool! I've only seen that show a handful of times, but I definitley liked it when it was on. I almost always catch Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay, though :)

  2. I have never seen that show... but Hubs watches a lot of the shows like Diners, Dives and whatever. Everytime we travel to a place with one of the restaurants he has seen, we have to go there and eat. I think it is kind of fun

  7. What a nice thing that you got to do together. Looks like a pretty place and like all of you had a great time.
    I think you did a great job getting all 4 of you dinner for $50. But I'm even happier that you'll be able to go back and Rick can get his steak now that you are both working. =)
