Whether you’re planning an evening out with that special someone, or having a fun night out with your gal pals or best buds, here are three great restaurants in Midland where you can enjoy a tasty meal on Valentine’s Day.

The Garlic Press

Since opening its doors in 1999, The Garlic Press has been a favorite of many Midlanders. The restaurant can impress even the most sophisticated tastebuds with dishes like potato-crusted flounder in a white wine butter and shallot sauce, or seared diver scallops with lobster Shiitake crepes, or hand-cut Black Angus steak coated with lobster truffle butter. Who can resist? Executive Chef  Joshua Washburn is also the owner, and has been running the restaurant since 2005.


If you’ve got a taste for Italian food, with a helping of romantic flair, Venezia just might be the perfect spot for you and your significant other. During chilly evenings, dine fireside while you enjoy classic Italian cuisine and homemade pastas, or seafood specials. When the weather permits, you can have your meal al fresco on Venezia’s patio. The restaurant has been owned and operated by husband and wife team Carmine and Karen Scarcelli since 1988.

KD’s Bar-B-Q

Have a girls night out, or round-up the guys for a night of finger-licking good food at KD’s Bar-B-Q. This smokehouse dry rubs its meats and smokes them over mesquite wood. Enjoy ribs, brisket, pork chops, German sausage, and turkey. Slather your meats in your choice of barbecue sauce, including regular, sweet, vinegar, and spicy. There’s also a bean bar where diners can grab beans, bread, pickles, jalapenos, and hot salsa to accompany their meals.
