Whoever wrote that article is a twit and must have no real knowledge of the restaurants in Murray or no concept of "romance".
I haven't been to Tom's Grille in awhile so I really don't remember the layout but I would put Los Portales as being more romantic than Applebee's or Tumbleweed. I don't think romantic is having sports blaring on the multiple tv's all around the restaurant

First of all, Los Portales is always crowded and not the ambiance for the older crowd which I happen to be in. Los is full of families and young students looking to eat chips and dip for dinner. I prefer the older crowd sit down have a expensive meal and sit and talk experience.
Since you used the word twit I take it your young or you'd realize that Murray is a great town with lots of restaurants to choose from but My picks for romantic dinners is these three, take it for what you will.
Another thing is I got one response about Jasmine as being a romantic restaurant and geez.. sushi really no thank you not my favorite so I will again say I'm old school give me a steak and baked potato and glass of wine.
Thanks for everyone's comment but the article is my picks not everyone's choices

How do you get "youth" from using the old english term "twit" exactly?

Romantic restaurants in Murray? Are you kidding? Are you clueless? The closest thing Murray had was J. Edwards, but it was "way too expensive" for the fine dining clientele of Murray. Then again, the fine dining clientele of Murray wants their white beans, fried okra and paper napkins. Murray's idea of a romantic restaurant is the picnic table at Dairy Queen.

Jasmine is very romantic. The lighting is great, and if you think they only have sushi, then you've obviously never been there. Tom's is good, but Applebee's definitely would not have made my list. Tumbleweed is understandable if you are outside. What about Shogun?
As a "writer" you should applaud those who debate your article. At least they read it. You could have simply said you would take these viewpoints into account and write a follow up after visiting each one.
Like I said, you should thank people for taking the time to read your piece. However, with a disrepectful, and obviously close minded attitude like the one you've shown, I for one won't make that mistake again.

While I agree the writer must not have ever been to Jasmines if they think sushi is the only thing served there, and nothing makes me cringe like some dismissive yokel saying they need to batter it up and fry it, but the writer was not responding to "debate". She was responding to being called a 'twit'.

I have responded far harsher to people calling me names.

Where is the Lodge of Murray Steak and Seafood House? Saw that the Titians Caravan had stopped there.

You want the hard truth? There is NO such thing as fine/romantic dining anywhere in Murray. Hell, you would be hard-pressed to find one in Paducah. We are a simple folk here. And the people with real coin go elsewhere for fine dining.

I know she wasn't looking to debate. My point was that she should take pride in the fact that people took the time to read her article, and then discuss it (though it seems most were on the same side of the issue, whether or not they expressed themselves appropriately).

Beyond that, sticks and stones, AKT.

The closest thing Murray ever had to a romantic restaurant was a place called R.J Brewbakers in the late 80s.

It was downtown in the building that the Sheriff's office just moved out of.

As I remember, the right man made the evening romantic, not the restaurant. Sometimes a hamburger at the drive in can be romantic.

Well, the Lodge sign says Open... but I haven't noticed any advertising. Our fav for a quiet romantic meal is Brass Lantern in Aurora. Not too far from Murray - just North of 80 on 68.
If you haven't been lately, they have wonderful reasonably priced specials. Check them out on FB- they are trying very hard to overcome the old "special occasion" restaurant image they have had for years. Open Wed - Sun for dinner.

This insight coming from an individual from Mayfield, where a romantic dinner consists of taking a fresh bucket of oats to the cow barn.
