Wow, it’s 2016 already.

2015 was filled with great restaurants, plenty of wine, and some killer craft beers. At the end of 2015 I asked if any of my readers wanted me to do a year end roundup of some of my favorite places and quite a few of you on the Facebook page responded yes, so here goes.

The restaurants are in no particular order, as a matter of fact, if you think a place deserves to be higher on the list, then vote and give it a thumbs up in the list, the more thumbs up a place gets, the higher it will rank.

I’ve also provided a brief description of each restaurant and a pricing guideline based on my experience at each location.

If you want to know more about the restaurant click the picture and you will be linked to that restaurants website.

Leave a comment, I want to know what restaurants were your favorites this year too!
