Yesterday evening, The Old Geezer's Dining Club met again. This time the Restaurant de jour was the Broadkill Boathouse restaurant in Milton, Delaware. The Broadkill Boathouse was formerly the Iguana Grill. I ate there once a few years ago with my good friend Bob Mc. It was not a pleasant experience.
Which was a shame because the location of the restaurant is ideal. It is right on the Broadkill River (thus the name) with a beautiful view of Wagamon's Pond in the center to downtown Milton.

Don, Bob and I had the prime rib sandwich special at $10.00. Superb! And you all know how fussy I am with food, especially prime rib. Not for me a pink, soggy, pulsating slab (or two) of meat on a bun. I need it cooked. My prime rib sandwich was perfect. With the prime rib sandwich I had steak fries. The best steak fries I've ever had. I can say that without qualification.
Teddy had a hamburger with sweet potato fries. Teddy, who is about as fussy as I am, had no complaints about his food. The hamburger tasted like hamburger (chargrilled - both of us love that flavor) and he especially liked the sweet potato fries which had some kind of special coating on it that he couldn't determine. He asked the waitress but she didn't know either. Thus that will remain a mystery.
Don had some kind of salad that looked like it had goose poop on it but he also pronounced it an unqualified success. Maybe the goose poop dressing was in memory of the former geese population that took up residence at the Broadkill River last year until someone from the state park snuck in the dark lonely hours of the early morning hours before and did away with the year round resident geese.

After dining at the Broadkill we all returned to Ted's house for his homemade peach pie with ice cream. Delicious! Thank you Ted.
A delightful summer evening with friends in the cozy little town of Milton on the Broadkill River. It doesn't get much better than this folks. We'll have to do it again.
