Whether you’re a wine connoisseur, a craft beer enthusiast, or a cocktail lover, we have something for everyone. Here’s a guide to some of our favorite pairings that you can enjoy on your next visit.

Wine and Dine

Chardonnay with Grilled Seafood

Our light and buttery Chardonnay pairs beautifully with our wood-grilled seafood dishes. The wine’s crisp acidity and subtle oakiness complement the smoky, savory flavors of dishes like our Grilled Swordfish or Shrimp Skewers, enhancing their natural sweetness and providing a refreshing balance.

Pinot Noir with Roasted Chicken

A medium-bodied Pinot Noir is the perfect match for our succulent Roasted Chicken. The wine’s bright red fruit flavors and earthy undertones meld seamlessly with the rich, herb-infused chicken, creating a harmonious balance that’s both satisfying and sophisticated.

Cabernet Sauvignon with Steak

For a classic pairing, you can’t go wrong with a robust Cabernet Sauvignon alongside our tender Ribeye Steak. The bold tannins and dark fruit notes of the wine cut through the richness of the steak, while the steak’s juicy, charred exterior enhances the wine’s complexity.

Craft Beer and Cuisine

Pale Ale with Spicy Dishes

Our Pale Ale, with its hoppy bitterness and citrusy notes, is a great match for our spicier offerings, like the Spicy Sausage Flatbread. The beer’s crisp, refreshing qualities help to tame the heat and cleanse your palate, making each bite as enjoyable as the first.

Stout with Chocolate Desserts

If you’re a fan of dark, rich beers, try our Stout with one of our decadent chocolate desserts, such as the Chocolate Lava Cake. The beer’s roasted malt flavors and creamy texture complement the deep, intense chocolate, creating a delightful symphony of flavors.

Craft Cocktails and Culinary Creations

Margarita with Tacos

Our signature Margarita, made with fresh lime juice and top-shelf tequila, is a natural companion for our flavorful Tacos. The cocktail’s bright, tangy profile enhances the zesty, savory elements of the tacos, while its slight sweetness provides a pleasant contrast.

Old Fashioned with Pork Belly

For a more robust pairing, try our classic Old Fashioned with our Glazed Pork Belly. The cocktail’s rich bourbon base and hints of orange and bitters perfectly complement the pork belly’s sweet and savory glaze, creating a luxurious, balanced combination.

Gin and Tonic with Fresh Salads

A refreshing Gin and Tonic is the ideal partner for our fresh, vibrant salads, like the Citrus Avocado Salad. The gin’s botanical notes and the tonic’s effervescence elevate the salad’s crisp vegetables and tangy dressing, making for a light and delightful pairing.
