It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.
Do you offer daily happy hour specials? If so, which days, times, and what are the drink price specials? Do you offer any other drink specials?

Response from Akin A | Reviewed this property |

Is there elevator access to the 2nd floor or only stairs?
