The service was quick and all of the food was good but, the ranch, that they said was homemade, tasted like it had a whole clove of garlic in it. I would definitely not eat the ranch again, but I'd go back.

Hi Mike, Yes, we do offer a $13.95 early evening menu daily (excluding holidays) from 4-6pm. It's a 'you need to know about it' kind of menu, so ask for it the next time you join us! Looking forward to serving you soon.
