Specials for the weekend of August 22-23

August 22nd, 2014

You will not want to miss out on the Alaskan Halibut this weekend. I may not be able to run Halibut from the cold and clean Alaskan waters again this year as the season is coming to a close. The fish is a beautiful, snow white color with wonderful, fresh flavors.

Or perhaps you would prefer the Certified Black Angus beef short ribs that we slow-braised in Barbera red wine with aromatic herbs and spices. Either way, the entree specials are awesome.

The special appetizer this week is cast iron-seared, fresh Brussels sprouts caramelized with balsamic and bacon. Yum!

LOBSTER RAVIOLI IS BACK! Our baked two color lobster ravioli with the to-die-for tomato-crab-cream sauce is back on the menu starting this weekend.

Enjoy! – Scott -

August 15th, 2014

The specials this weekend are really not to be missed!

The soup is an all time fan favorite, the lobster bisque. For a special appetizer I am making crispy risotto cakes with baby spinach, cremini mushrooms, and prosciutto. I created a new item with the sea scallops on a bed of penne in a smoked gouda sauce. We also have locally-raised Duroc pork chops from the Good’s farm combined with fresh grilled peaches. Rachel’s lemon dessert will be the perfect end to the meal. You pretty much need the whole prix fixe this weekend! The oysters from Vancouver Island are even a treat this weekend.

It is going to be way too hot this weekend for you to even think about cooking at home. After you take your kids to the fair, the only way to relax is to eat here. Let us do the cooking and cleaning!

The specials this weekend are all-American inspired with all-American ingredients. The first of the season Alaskan Halibut is amazing, really special stuff that you will not want to miss. The steaks are outstanding with a glaze I made by reducing a pitcher of Manhattan cocktails down to a cup of sauce. I also have local sweet corn and Alaskan King Crab risotto for the appetizer. I am certain you will want to come in twice this weekend to try both specials!

Specials for the weekend of July 5

July 5th, 2014

We have some great specials this weekend that celebrate the rustic, smoky, and spicy American flavors! You are probably really tired of cleaning up the dishes and grilling hot dogs in 95 degree weather. So tonight is the perfect time to bring out your family.

We will be open normal hours the rest of the weekend.

Also I wanted to thank my wife Rachel for the putting up with me over the last two decades. Wednesday was our 20th Anniversary! Four great kids and ten years of the restaurant being open is a lot to take. Thanks for making my dreams real. (Well, most of the time anyway!)

Enjoy! – Scott –

June 27th, 2014

I believe that I have some wonderful specials this weekend that feature items that I don’t often use. Florida Grouper with Mango Salsa, and Angus Beef Short Ribs that I braised in root beer spices. Plus corn meal cakes with shredded pork and mole sauce.
So I know that many people have been waiting to come in on a slower weekend. Well, that’s this weekend! Over the last ten years, the weekend of Country Stampede has been our slowest of the year. So you can probably walk in tonight and tomorrow, and have a quite dinner in our new location.

We will be closed on July 4th. Normal hours for the weekend, I will start the specials for next weekend on Thursday.

Enjoy! – Scott –
