Valentine’s Day is a special holiday to celebrate your special someone, and that could tempt you to make dinner reservations.
If you haven’t made those classic Valentine’s Day dinner reservations, two local Collier County restaurants told WINK News, you’re in luck.
A day to celebrate your sweetheart can go horribly wrong if you forget to make dinner plans.
Jacci Jones, the manager of The Dock at Crayton Cove, and Pam Pischner, the owner of Grouper and Chips, said they’ve got your back.
“You haven’t made a reservation anywhere you can come here,” Pischner said.
“We did leave a third of the restaurant open for walk-ins though for those last-minute planners,” Jones said.
The Dock closed its door for three months after Hurricane Ian. After five and a half feet of water forced staff to gut the inside.
Grouper and Chips closed for a few days due to a little bit of water inside and no electricity.
But they’re happy to say they’re both back open and on the day to celebrate love, they’d love your business, even if you’re not great at planning.
“We want you to come on in, come down and see us. Don’t take reservations but come on and we’d love to have you here at Grouper and Chips,” Pischner said.
“It’s the start of season for us. Valentine’s Day is really the first day of our busy season. And we’re always excited for it,” Jones said.
Another Collier County dining option on Valentine’s Day is The Pelican Bend restaurant on the Isles of Capri.
They recently reopened after a ton of damage from Hurricane Ian.
