Valentine's Day is the second biggest day for restaurants behind Mother's Day and each year more and more love birds enjoy a night out for a romantic dinner.

Don't look now, but Valentine's Day is right around the corner and you might want to get moving if you haven't already made reservations. Several of the popular local spots are already booked up, but you might still be able to book a table for an early or a late dinner.

Several local restaurants are having special events for Valentine's Day. The Glenwood Tea Room has 2 seatings for the special night, but it is quickly filling up. 2 John's is also having a special menu item for Valentine's Day and Ernest will have special offerings for couples as well.

    Binion's @ Horseshoe

    This is a beautiful restaurant and you will find amazing food in a charming setting. I love starting the meal off with lolli-pop lamb chops or crab bisque. These are both great choices. For the entree, you almost have to get one of the spectacular steaks. The ribeye is my favorite. But I also like the slow roasted prime rib. It's mouth watering.
