As Valentine's Day quickly approaches, about one third of people in relationships still haven't made plans for dinner yet.  If you fall into that group, don't worry you're not alone.

Seems like people procrastinate more and more these days, I'm included.  But if you were hoping to take your Valentine out to dinner this year, you better make your reservations NOW!  Many local favorite restaurants are already booked for the big romantic evening.

Many people will try to actually make plans with the sweethearts on Valentine's Day itself, so if your favorite restaurant is already booked up, you might consider going a day or two before or after, or on the following Friday or Saturday night.

I thought I'd save us both a bit of time and did a quick Yelp search for 'Best Valentine's Dinner' for Casper, WY and here are their top recommendations with phone numbers for your convenience.

Bosco's Italian Restaurant (307) 265-9658 - Yelp reviewers give them 3 1/2 out of 5 stars and is a very cost effective choice for good Italian food in Casper.

Silver Fox Steakhouse (307) 235-3000 - Yelp shows the Silver Fox with 4 stars, but this by far one of my personal favorites.  Good steaks and a great atmosphere make this a great place for a romantic Valentine's day dinner.

J's Pub and Grill (307) 439-5785 - Reviewers on gave J's Pub & Grill 4 stars on Yelp and you can even make a reservation online, which I think is pretty cool!  Especially for Casper.

FireRock Steakhouse (307) 439-5938 - Another local favorite, but can be a bit loud when the restaurant is crowded.  But it's crowded because the food is delicious!  Yelp reviewers like this choice as well rewarding it with 4 stars.

Racca's Pizzeria Napoletana (307) 337-2444 - top rated on Yelp with 4 1/2 stars out of 5 stars, one of Casper's newest restaurants offers a really good selection of Italian meal choices, for a price that won't break your heart.

You can bet all 5 of these choices will be packed this Valentine's Day, so make your reservations now, or risk finding yourself in the doghouse!  Happy Valentine's Day!!
