Starting this weekend on March 28th Royal Oak Restaurant Week will be in full swing through April 6th with more than twenty restaurants participating in three-course lunches and dinners for either $15, $25, or $35.
The restaurants range from fine dining to diners and everything in between, and the three price tags work for sandwiches, steaks, pastas, and more. To get the best deals, check out the menus beforehand as some restaurants are only serving dinner, and others have meals at $15, $25, and $35 all on the same menu.
Restaurant weeks are the best time to try more expensive restaurants, but be aware that portion sizes have likely been made smaller. Likewise, make reservations when possible and count on longer wait times, especially at popular restaurants during peak hours, and remember that servers have to work just as hard when serving a $15 meal as they do a full-priced option, so tip generously and be patient.
