The View Pub - Winter Hours of Operation

Effective Monday, October 30, 2017 – Eagle Ridge will be adjusting our hours of operation better reflect the seasonal nature of our business. This would include the discontinuation of the Butcher Block & Kettle Buffet on Wednesday evening, but would still allow us to host guests for Sunday Brunch, Dedicated Special Events (such as the popular Pete Custode on November 9th) and Friday Evenings. The latter would remain at our normal business hours so our loyal patrons can enjoy Chef Gregg’s culinary creations, and share good spirits with their friends and neighbors.

Wednesday - 11:30AM – 6:00PM

We are excited to roll out a much anticipated NEW menu for The View Pub!  The Pub menu has gotten a fresh update including more "shareable"  appetizers like Bavarian Pretzel Sticks with Cheddar Cheese Beer dipping sauce and Bruschetta dip.  We have also freshened up our salads and burgers.  Gone are the Pizza Flatbreads, as they have been replaced by round pizzas!  The most noteable changes to the menu are in the Pub Specials.  Featuring a delicious Ribeye Steak and Shrimp Scampi. 

Happy Hour is now SIX DAYS A WEEK!  Happy Hour is Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday from 3pm-5pm.  Friday happy hour times remain the same from 3pm-6pm.
