Potentially, yes. Please call the restaurant to work out the details.
I would like to host a party of 20 for happy hour in September. Is there a patio or separate area that can accommodate a group? When is happy hour. This would be on a Friday. Is there a menu online? Is there another eatery in or near Sunriver to consider for the wedding couple's families after wedding rehearsal.

Our patio holds up to 40 people comfortably. Please call to make a reservation well in advance, as groups this large require special accommodations. Thanks!
