We are at the front room and ordered their happy hour specials. That's the way to go. Their garlic cheese bread is yummy. I like their red cabbage salad with their blue cheese salad. Red cabbage is tangy.

To be honest, I'm not sure. Might be a good idea to give the restaurant a call directly and inquire.
I am trying to make a lunch reservation for 12:30pm, PST. Can I do that?
