The Best On-Water Dining!

“I finally got us a table at Poseidon’s Paradise!  We’re booked for 4:15.”

“Whoo-hoo, the most talked about restaurant on the coast!  Uhm, isn’t that an odd time for dinner?”

“Their hours of operation change from day to day and that is the latest opening I could get before they shut for the evening. As it is, we’ll have to be out of there by 5.”

“Why are the closing so early on a Friday?”

“You know how they say it is the closest to the ocean experience anywhere?”

“Yeah?”

“The dining room is underwater four hours per tide cycle.”

    Maybe time to invest in a good pair of stilts for the place? Fun story and one that the coasts of MI can relate to. We don’t have a tide, but our water has been eating away at dunes that are causing homes to fall in and I’m guessing a few restaurants as well.

      A lot of members of my family live on the shore of Lake Erie and it has been very high the last few years, so I’m sure they can relate as well. And, of course, I’m sure many seaside restaurants are wondering if this will be their fate in a few years…

    Now that’s an interesting dining experience! Maybe you can wear your wet suit and go for a swim after dinner. I found your blog through a comment you left on Suzanne’s Picture Retirement. I enjoyed the creativity and scrolling through the comments.

      “We serve only the freshest sea food – in fact, some of it even swims into our kitchen” ;) Thanks! Suzanne often participates in my “Weekly Smile”.

      With every restaurant trying to out “close-to-the-water” each other, it’s only a matter of time… Of course, if sea levels raise, well, it’s only a matter of time that way as well.

      It seems that every seaside town has a competition to see which restaurant is closest to the “on the water experience”, so I think just a matter of time (or, in a matter of time it will be this way, like ti or not ;) ). Thanks, Dale.

      If this restaurant is on the Gulf Coast, yes! Another one is headed their way. And then there is the Covid hit as well. And, well, not a time to own a beach front business in Louisiana….
