The Bright Star Restaurant
This was a favorite eating establishment for Coach Bear Bryant and there is a lot of football memorabilia on display from players and other famous people like Sandra Bullock, who brought her father there to eat. As Jimmy was telling us goodbye last night, Lee Roy Jordan, who played for Alabama and then the Dallas Cowboys (and was inducted into the Hall of Fame), came in to eat. He and Jimmy are in the photo below.
They are known for fresh seafood, great steaks and delicious desserts, many with a Greek taste. One item on the menu that is popular is the snapper throats. Fresh seafood is brought up from the Gulf daily and hand cut there in the restaurant. My husband decided to try the fried snapper throats. The fish was very good, but there are a lot of bones, so if you don't like to pick fish bones try something else. There are many preparations to try!
Now, moving on to dessert. Our friends ordered the Baklava Cheesecake (shown below)....all I can say is WOW! I will be getting that next time!
