Where to Eat & Drink Alone on Valentine's Day

View as Map

It's Valentine's Day and people are shamelessly strutting their coupledom all about town. If all you want is a night to wine and dine without all the fuss, why shouldn't you have it? Here's a map of some of the best places to go solo on Valentine's Day. Beware twosomes, some of these places are for singles only. You may want bottomless Sangrias at the OTC, for example, but unfortunately, they are only for the unattached.

Michael's Genuine Food & Drink

Copy Link
A great no fuss zone if you need some comfort food. Stop by for dinner between 5:30 and 11 p.m. and a few drinks between 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. during Happy Hour.
Here’s where you go if you want to revel in your ability to drink bottomless sangria for $20 while those less fortunate coupled-people cannot. The deal here is: “only if you’re a dateless single who’s looking to mingle”.

The River Oyster Bar

Copy Link
This place might be oozing with cuddling in the late evening, but run over before then and you can enjoy half-priced oysters and drink specials from 4:30-7p.m.

Wood Tavern

Copy Link
When you’re all done eating, stop by Wood Tavern and have some drinks. While the betrothed are busy staring into each other’s eyes, you, my friend, can spark up a convo with the pretty bartender.

Toni's Sushi Bar

Copy Link
What’s a Valentine’s Day meal without some aphrodisiac food? Grab a seat at the sushi bar and scarf down some fishy goodness. Maybe some sushi will get you in the mood for mingling later.

Lagniappe

Copy Link
The dreamy vibe at this place might hint at Valentine’s Day, but a table in the garden, some live music, one or three bottles of wine later and you won’t even remember what day it is.

Meat Market

Copy Link
No need to worry about sitting at the table alone here. Grab a seat by the counter and enjoy one of their signature steaks or fish dishes such as the Cedar Paper Salmon.

Cascata Grille

Copy Link
Pfft Romance Shmomance… well, if you do want a little romance, try Cascata Grille’s cozy bar or sit on the terrace and experience dinner by the waterfall.
Happy hour? Old news. Try unhappy hour at Fix, where the single folks get 2 for 1 shots from 6-11 p.m. Don’t forget to try some of their bar bites like, The Burn or Selfish Sweet Chili Shrimp Tacos.
