Since Jason has to work until 11:30pm tonight, we decided to celebrate New Year’s Eve last night by going out to dinner and then getting a few after dinner drinks. I knew that I wanted to go out in Decatur and a quick Yelp search told me that there was a new restaurant that sounded good – Harbor Bar and Fish House.
Unfortunately, this restaurant is in a sort of doomed location. Isn’t that weird how that happens in every city? There will be locations that restaurants just can’t stay open in. This space is cool, it’s an old house, but in the past maybe 5-7 years it’s been an ice cream shop, a Mexican restaurant and I think something else. I didn’t even know that it had been changed into a seafood restaurant. Nevertheless, we decided to give it a try.
Sorry for the terrible photos. I don’t know how to shoot pictures in a restaurant without using the flash or bumping up the ISO until they look incredibly grainy, which is what I did here with my point and shoot.
Jason started out with oysters. I don’t like oysters but I tried one to make sure. Yep, still don’t like them. I don’t particularly like them cooked either.
For my meal, I had the Thai Shrimp Salad. It was huge and came with eight pieces of shrimp. Nice.
While the food was good, our only problem with this restaurant was that they didn’t really have a lot of grilled seafood and what they did have was on the expensive side. All in all, a decent choice though.
After dinner, we decided to stay out and have a few drinks. We walked over to Mac Mcgee’s on the Decatur Square where some friends joined us.
I texted Alayna to see if she and Jeff wanted to join us since they live in Decatur and like to go to a lot of the same places that we do. Turns out they were on their way out the door to go to a different bar, so they changed their plans and met us instead.
I had three drinks at Mac Mcgee’s before calling it quits. Not exactly as wild and crazy as some of my New Year’s Eves in years past, but just as fun.
