The Low Down


Look Good: Request a table on the outdoor terrace for Sunday brunch which features the signature duck gumbo and 99-cent mimosas until 3pm.

The Extras: The lush landscaping, citrus grove, kitchen garden and picturesque grounds make Rainbow Lounge a popular spot for weddings receptions and private parties. Call for reservations and catering menu prices.

When to Go: "Supper Sunday," starting at 5pm each week, features casual comfort food specials from $15, plus half-price wines by the glass. Entree options include braised buffalo short ribs, grilled bock brined pork chops, smoked duck hash, steak frites and vegetable lasagna.

Know Before You Go: Regulars will be relieved to know that the famous Tied Fly Bar (a 20-foot wood bar carved into a trout stream) made it over from the original location.

Good for Groups: The restaurant has extended hours during the holiday season, including Monday nights. There are four party rooms available.
