Wahoo’s Sports Bar & Grill (Lighthouse Point)
***** Wahoo’s Sports Bar & Grill, 3128 North Federal Highway, Lighthouse Point, Florida 33064, (954) 786-2569.
To paraphrase the great comedian Soupy Sales, “There are more sports-bars in South Florida than there are Chins in a Chinese phonebook”…you know the game, there’s this Ale-House and that Duffy’s and this Flanigan’s and that…
Anyway…I recently found Wahoo’s Sports Bar & Grill in Lighthouse Point, which was like a breath of fresh air from the other joints. Wahoo’s has only been opened something like six weeks, so not too many people know about it yet. Just so you know, a poster named Mike on October 2, 2008 under the C.R. Chicks review (10/1/08) gave me the “heads-up” about this joint.
Take a look at Wahoo’s website at www.wahoossportsbar.com. The site has menu/prices/and plenty of photos which should give you a pretty good idea as to what this joint is all about.
Like I said before, sports-bars with large menus and loads of flat screen tvs on the walls are “a dime a dozen” down here in South Florida. For sure, Wahoo’s has the large menu (tons of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, meat/seafood/chicken/pasta entrees, desserts) and tvs…but what makes this joint stand-out from the others, is that its nautical-decor is very “interesting” and its food is terrific. A recent outing resulted in my “tasting” (someone has to do it) mini burgers, onion straws, french fries, roast chicken, parmesan chicken wings, coconut shrimp, chili, meatloaf, chicken francais and lobster/crab ravioli…I am telling you, most sports-bars don’t even come close to making stuff this good. As for service, ”very pleasant and efficient” sports-bar-service… My party of 4 (you knew that I didn’t eat all of that food by myself, didn’t you?) had a waitress named Michele who was absolutely terrific. As for prices, Wahoo’s “is not” and I emphasize the word “not” a $10.95 salad/baked potato/22 oz. ribeye steak sports-bar…that said, you won’t go broke eating at this joint, but a bowl of that chili is going to run you $5.95…chicken francais $14.95…lobster/crab ravioli $21.95.
You now know about a sports-bar that is heads and shoulders above its competition. The joint is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-11pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-midnight.
