We didn't quite know what to order, but our lovely waitress graciously helped us choose. She had no problem recommending that Geo try the ribs and I the shrimp and basil fettuccine. Good choices for sure, and certainly good selections for us to try... but I suspect that everything on the menu has merit... after all, it was hard for us to choose.
We loved the elephants... and they were everywhere. Did I mention that there were animals all over the place? There is even a taxidermy tiger. Now personally I am not too much into the taxidermy thing, but I do find it interesting to see what an animal looks like, up close and personal, sort of.
The desserts are usually $2.00 each, but they were half price that night, so we splurged and tried them all. If the prices at the Safari Room are a bit out of your budget but you still want to hit the downtown scene sometime, remember, they have special deals from time to time. Some of their specials even include accommodations overnight. All you have to do is check their website, or call and ask about dining specials...which they do have, making a visit here quite affordable for the person who lives local, particularly during "happy hour."
The Davenport Hotel has specials worth checking out from time to time as well... and of course there is always valet parking!
HEre are some animals in the lobby of the Tower...
a hippo and a rhino....
and I am not certain, but I think this pool of water is smiling. If it is, it must be because we had a lovely time at the Safari Room at the Davenport Hotel Tower!
