I would absolutely call them ahead of time. They are a small place and I have made arrangements for a special menu addition with them before as well.

What is the alcohol selection there? My friend is celebrating her 21st on that day and we wanted somewhere relaxing and calm for her to have a drink or two!

I believe it is just beer and wine. A very good beer and wine selection. Their patio is excellent for a casual lunch.
