I’ve been meaning to try Bookers for years! And, I mean years! I finally found a reason to go and it was for Valentines Day which seems a bit strange but it’s like a neat “holiday” dinner. There wasn’t a lot of parking in front of Bookers, but it wasn’t bad to find some within walking distance.
We decided to have their Valentines Special which was half of their BBQ Platter with some modifications. So, it came with half rack of Pork Ribs, Smokehouse Brisket, Smoked turkey breasts, with some sausages, baked beans and coleslaw. My favourite from the platter was the pork ribs which was fall off the bone tender and grilled to perfection.
With this special, it had a their Bucket of Crab which is a bucket of 2 clusters of snow crab with lemon and butter. The 2 cluster of snow crabs was so fresh and the shell was hard and crunchy. The melted butter was fantastic but it wasn’t necessary as the crab was amazing alone.
The entire experience was fantastic. The food was delicious, the environment was magnificent, and the service was top-notch!
