Anaheim: festive restaurant for a b'day dinner?

Looking for suggestions for a fun, festive resto in the Anaheim area for a group of six exuberant adults. Good food, strong drinks (or extensive beer menu), and a tolerance for potentially boisterous behavior.

Yes, we will probably end up being THAT table, if you know what I mean. I plan to tip heavily.

We're middle-aged, so "young, trendy, hip" places are lost on us. ;-)

But the group is lively and silly, so solemn temples of dining are not appropriate, either.

A restaurant with some sort of goofy shtick might work.

All cuisines are fair game, but we do like our slabs of meat.

We can expand the radius to include surrounding areas.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. I'm thinking Park Avenue in Stanton would fit the bill nicely.

      Yeah, I had the same thought... or Cafe Hidalgo in Fullerton, as long as you stay at least ten metres away from their much-vaunted "cumin vinaigrette".

    2. Definitely Park Ave. Cool, rat pack atmosphere. Full Bar. Excellent food. They also have a back room where I have seen loud, boisterous groups be seated. :-) Been there quite a few times and haven't been dissapointed- brought my middle age inlaws there, they loved it.
