On Monday, I was invited to experience the newly-renovated AMC Dine-In Theatre in Grapevine a few days before their opening. I have been visiting AMC 30 since it opened (when
Cinema Suites is the more luxurious and exclusive of the dine-in options with his 48 leather fully-reclining chairs, 21+ age restriction, exclusive menu options, and spaciousness (9 ft between each row). I loved the “cuddle factor” of these seats because the chairs are in pairs and the center armrest can be moved back. The accommodations are top-notch–worthy of the hype, but what about the food?
I started off with a Pomegranate Martini that was perfect in every way (hubs had a Grey Goose Martini) and we shared appetizers.

It did feel pleasantly strange to be eating such good calamari and a martini in a movie theater I also had a Mango Margarita that was good. For dinner, I really really wanted to try the Prime Rib sandwich but since they were out of that, I had the Brisket Quesadillas (which were AWESOME!). Next time I go, I will be perplexed about what to order because I fell in love with those awesome quesadillas but I still need to try the Prime Rib sandwich. The Smoked Salmon BLT sounds really good as well…
Smoked Salmon BLT Hot smoky salmon paired with hickory bacon, crisp lettuce and sliced tomatoes on our kaiser roll. Dressed with garlic basil aioli and served with potato chips. 10.99

I take my date nights seriously. Dates should be SPECIAL and this was special.
I give AMC Dine-In Theatres two thumbs up and plan on visiting again very soon. If you want to go check it out for yourself, print out the downloadable coupon below to receive a free dessert.
Hubby and I were treated to dinner and movie courtesy of AMC, my opinion is my own–because that is worth more than dinner and a movie
