With the economy in rough shape, the casual and fine dining scenes are becoming a fierce battle ground for customers. A perfect indication of this is when restuarants add happy hours. Happy Hours are a great way for restaurants to get people in the door, buying food, drinks, and maybe even an entree.
Flemings, a higher end steakhouse, has just added a happy hour. The menu, brief but well rounded, features five selections each of cocktails, wines by the glass and appetizers all priced at $6. The specials are available daily until 7 PM! You can check out their menu here.
Now, I’m not tripping at all on Flemings having a happy hour. I’m a big fan of discounted food and beverages, particulary at high end places where the service quotient is high. And with the economy the way it is, I can certainly see them doing what they need to do to increase traffic.
I’m giggling a little though, becuase the last time I was in Flemings, a server there made it seem like happy hour was the last thing they would ever do. I simply asked if they offered a happy hour. His reply: “No, we don’t have a happy hour. We open at 5!”.
As if 5 PM isn’t the perfect time to get the party started!
Anyway, for those of you that are blessed to have the budget to eat out and are looking for a deal, check out Flemings. I’m sure you’ll get great food and great service…all at a great discount.
