ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)- Nothing says love like scattered, smothered, covered and chunked.  Now you're hungry, right? Drop by Waffle House for a meal -- and while you're there, make a reservation to come back with your sweetheart on Valentine's Day.

For the 9th year in a row, select Waffle House locations are offering a different, romantic atmosphere for lovebirds. Albertville Waffle House Manager Tania Rockarts says they aim to make it a fun, memorable experience.

"We have a photo booth so you'll get photos, and we have a nice waffle house printed photo frame for them to go in. Candle light, table cloths, not your normal Waffle House, we make it as fancy as you can make a waffle house."

For the 4th year, the Waffle House in Albertville is offering this special service. Rockarts says she’s enjoyed watching the tradition grow every year.

"The first year we just did some table cloths, and a few flowers on the table, and each year it’s grown more and now all the way from lighting to the music, to the way the staff dresses that evening is completely different from what you’d normally see when you walk in on a regular Saturday or something of that nature.”

The Albertville location has already taken numerous reservations, and they anticipate many more. Staff looks forward to having a full house, and providing a romantic atmosphere for couples regardless of when they work.

"We’re always open, so for the people that work second shift that day, we’ll be here so they can still do something romantic for their spouse even though they didn’t get off until 11:00 at night," says Rockarts.

The restaurant will have special meals and desserts that evening, but will of course still provide the ever popular waffles and hash browns.

The chain that never closes will offer candlelight dinners on February 14 at select locations.  Here in north Alabama, there are five locations offering this service:

  • 80 Alabama Hwy 75 N, Albertville, AL  (256) 891-7822
