It’s been a long time since I’ve been in one of our local casinos, due to Covid, but also, I honestly can’t take the smoke. So I was thrilled to hear that there is no longer any smoking whatsoever which made the decision to have dinner at Pom in Fantasy Springs Resort last week easy since we were headed to Fantasy Lanes to check it out.
The restaurant was fully booked, and the wait was over an hour; however, a couple of nice guys at the bar were heading into the concert, and we snagged their seats.
We started with the unique seasonal Old Fashioned, which had a splash of apple instead of orange. It was made how it should be with one large ice cube, and the bartenders were excellent.
For dinner, I had the Cobb salad with chicken, bacon, egg, avocado, blue cheese, black olives, tomato, and blue cheese dressing. It was a nice presentation and very fresh and tasty.
Michael had the 14 oz. Rib Eye Steak with garlic whipped potatoes, tobacco onions, and a burgundy demi-glace. It was cooked perfectly, and as with the salad, it was a nice presentation.
We took our cocktails outside, just past the bar where the Rock Yard is. It’s a nice open-air concert area, and there was a decent band playing. They’ve got a Boston Tribute band on the calendar and a Bruno Mars Tribute band this weekend. During the week, they have a variety of different groups.
The main concert venue has everything from Dionne Warwick, Temptations & Four Tops, Bill Burr, Los Hurachanes Del Norte, Il Divo, Righteous Brothers, to Pit Bull and Toto. Pretty much something for everyone.
We’ll be back!
