Have had a few meals here and always enjoy. Both food and service have been great. Sometimes there can be a long wait if the theater has a show, so plan accordingly

Thanks for your question. Yes we do. We have 5 whites, 5 reds, and a rose all available by bottle or glass. It's a fairly decent selection for a family restaurant.
