Tuscaloosa is full of places for a great dining experience. Here's where you should make a reservation your next night out.

You made a great choice when you bought a home from Tuscaloosa homes for sale, getting good value and a beautiful home in the bargain. Perhaps you checked out the local amenities for good schools, shopping, places of worship, entertainment, and dining before you decided on your home. If so, you know there's a lot to enjoy within a short driving distance.

If you're planning on listing your Tuscaloosa home for sale, you might ask your real estate agent to mention some of your favorite Tuscaloosa restaurants known for pairing wine with dinner to potential buyers, along with other amenities.

Have a look at what our real estate agents have compiled as some of the best restaurants for wine and dinner in Tuscaloosa.

  1. Dillards Chophouse. 2330 4th St, Tuscaloosa
    Widely touted for its exceptionally friendly service, Dillards Chophouse is a high-end steak house, serving Filet Mignon, Prime Delmonico, and Prime New York Strip, among others, as well as Surf and Turf. As you'd expect with a fine dining establishment, Dillards offers an extensive wine menu, plus Wine Wednesdays, with 50 percent off all house wine bottles, and coming soon this year, a monthly wine dinner.

  2. Evangeline's Galleria of Tuscaloosa. 1653 Mcfarland Blvd N, Tuscaloosa
    Evangeline's is known for New American cuisine paired with the perfect wine in a romantic setting. This upscale restaurant aims at artful presentation and exceptional food, along with good service. Seafood — especially the fish, and especially the Sicialian Grouper — is highly recommended. For dessert, the Creme Brulee is likewise good. For appetizers or to share, try Pork and Greens, with fried pork belly, crispy brussels sprouts, balsamic reduction, and parmesan.

  3. Chuck's Fish. 508 Greensboro Ave, Tuscaloosa
    If you like seafood, Chuck's Fish is the place to go. If you love sushi, this is also the place to go. Want a steak? You can get that too. Start your seafood dinner with Seafood Gumbo, followed by Chuck's salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, figs, pecans, bacon, white cheddar, croutons, and creamy vinaigrette; then main entree of Gulf Fish of the Day or Sesame-Seared Tuna. Move on to dessert with Blondie Sundae or White Chocolate Bread Pudding. If you're going for sushi, have a look at the saké offerings.

  4. Reggae Flava. 2322 4th St, Tuscaloosa
    There's a lot to Caribbean cuisine, and Reggae Flava delivers some of those island sensations right to your palate. Start out with a tasty Jamaican Patty, full of spicy meat, and easily eaten in a tender crust. Ever had Curry Goat? We recommend it -- tender goat meat is cooked into a mildly spicy stew. There's also Jerk Chicken, Oxtails, Curry Chicken, and traditional sides such as Rice and Peas, Callaloo (like spinach), and Fried Plantains. Reggae Flava offers a traditional favorite, Red Stripe beer, to wash your food down, but there's also a nice selection of wines if you prefer.

  5. River. 1650 Jack Warner Parkway Unit 1005 A, Tuscaloosa
    Known for great service and excellent food, River consistently gets rave reviews. Start with shared plates — Charcuterie Board, Spring Salad, or Lobster Mushrooms — then move on to the fish, with a choice of Alabama Catfish, Shrimp and Grits, or Salmon, — or try the Prime Ribeye or Fried Chicken. Accompany your meal with a bottle or glass of wine. Check out the happy hour for 20 percent off Rosé bottles, and $5 for a glass of select wine.

These are just five of Tuscaloosa's singular restaurants. Try them all, then venture out on your own and find your family's favorite dining venues.
