After the months and months of planning, decisions become SO hard! Rehearsal Dinner can become an afterthought or something you just completely forgot to think about. Thankfully, where The French Farmhouse is located, you have some amazing options in every direction. Here are a few of our favorites!
Hannah’s is a great restaurant right off of the Historic Downtown Denton square. It has a great atmosphere and is so good for a group. Plus, you are within walking distance of the square! If you have family looking to find a post-rehearsal dinner spot for drinks or dessert, you are right by a bunch of fun options.
Located on the Denton Square, right on the corner of Oak and Locust! Barley & Board has a really great and unique menu with a huge beer selection. They also have a gorgeous party room for private events. Super cozy and amazing food. Plus, they just opened a second location in The Colony at Grandscape, if that is an easier location for you. However, we will always love the original!
Right inside of the Embassy Suites and Denton Convention Center, Houlihan’s is PERFECT if you have a bunch of family coming in from out of town and want to make the most of you all being in the same location. You can all stay in the Embassy, and just walk right downstairs for late-night dessert, and rehearsal dinner.
Just a block off of the downtown Denton square is 940’s! Since they opened their doors, they have been a Denton staple. It is such a cool restaurant that is nice, while still being comfortable. The menu is DELISH, and has something for everyone. One thing to note is that they do not have a separate party room, but have a party corner on the far end of their bar. They can host a group up to 20.
Most people in the area know about Babe’s! It is exactly what it sounds like- good, delicious fried chicken and sides. It is always a crowd-pleaser and never disappoints. There are a few locations in the area, the closest being in Sanger. But, if you are staying in Frisco there is a location there as well.
Haywire is really neat! It is located in Legacy West, on the border of Frisco and Plano, which is an incredible shopping area. Not only is it a great location for people from out of town, but Haywire has some delicious food. The first floor is a Whisky Bar, and the second and rooftop bar are beautiful restaurant seating.
Just a classic! Capital Grille is an amazing steakhouse and would be amazing for a nice sit-down dinner for you and your closest family and friends. It’ll definitely set the tone for your wedding weekend kickoff, and never disappoints!
If Italian food is your thing, you will be sold on Maggiano’s. They do family-style meals, which would be perfect for a group. Italian is one of those universal comfort foods, so you can’t go wrong!
This hotel is amazing for a big rehearsal group, especially if you are planning on having a room block here. Not only is it in a really cool area that would be great for guests to roam around, but you can have a group of any size! If you want just a small group, you can have dinner in the restaurant, or if you want a rehearsal dinner gone welcome party, you can ask about using one of their ballrooms.
Located on the original side of Legacy, Mexican Sugar is a really cool pan-Latin restaurant! The whole vibe is kind of upscale-cantina. The food is SO good, and Legacy is a hard area to beat. It is super walkable, and whether you are on the original east side, or in Legacy West there are awesome hotels for you and your guests to stay at.
YUM. Sixty Vines has such a good menu. They have a really good mix of shareables like charcuterie boards and appetizer plates, and full plates. The atmosphere is an amazing balance between upscale and comfortable- and there is really something for everyone.
Treat yourself and your guests with this one! Del Frisco’s is a classic, upscale steakhouse. Get your crew all dressed up for a great experience and incredible food!
The slightly more casual sister to Del Frisco’s Steakhouse (listed above). They have a really yummy menu that is perfect if you want the same Del Frisco’s quality, but steak isnt’t your thing.
No restaurant list is complete without a Brazilian Steakhouse. If you have never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, it is such a fun experience. It is an all-you-can-eat restaurant with tableside service. You will love it!
Another great Steakhouse! They have amazing food and, since it is located in WinStar World Casino, there is pretty much all the entertainment you could dream of right outside the restaurant. As an added bonus, there is a hotel! It definitely feels wild to out-of-towners that we would suggest a restaurant/ hotel in another state, but we are so close to Oklahoma. It is just a quick drive up 35. So, if you and your family are coming in from the north, this is a great home base for everyone with endless entertainment possibilities.
Delicious, southern home-style food! They have a great banquet room, and will provide the best southern comfort food the night before your big day! It is never a bad idea to treat yourself to your favorite’s on a big weekend!
Marty B’s is such a fun spot! They have a great family atmosphere with loads of entertainment, and a really great party option- the roof! They frequently have live music, which is always a plus. More importantly, their food is awesome.
