My wife and I enjoyed two meals at Brown Cow Pub during our visit. The menu is simple, but the quality and quantity were a pleasant surprise. The service, especially from Loraine was exceptional and the main reason we returned the next day.

We walked by another night during happy hour time and it was too crowded and we had our kids with us so we didn't go in. If you mean happy hour specials like reduced prices during a set couple of hours I'm not sure.
