I ate here several times during the summer, and the deck setting near the river is great. The food is delicious and they make excellent cocktails.

I know the head chef at the Storm Cafe. I contacted him and this he says the menu should be on their webpage. In addition they run specials on the weekend. Let me know if this helps.
