Great happy hour deals for drinks and appetizers. Service was excellent and enjoyed all of the food that we ordered. Just keep in mind happy hour is only offered on the bar side which has limited seating.

You are asking the person that reviewed this, not the restaurant. Look at their website and menu to find the answer.
Ron B
Do you have a special 3-course menu for Mondays? If yes, do you know what the menu and price will be for Monday, Aug. 29?
