The sun has finally come out and we are celebrating with a zesty new sammy tonight! Chef Justin has put his own spin on the classic Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich. Crispy bacon is perfectly married to a tenderly grilled chicken breast and served with a generous slathering of our unique zippy Ranch Sauce. All of this nestled in a buttery panini? What more could your taste buds desire? Savor your sammy with a creamy glass of Laurelwood Brewing‘s Tree Hugger Organic Porter or a bold Sangiovese from Sun River Vintners. Yum!
Continuing with the comfort food theme, our Soup of the Day is Tomato Bisque and features tons of Fresh Basil and zesty tomatoes with that right-from-the-garden aroma. Add to that some grated Parmesan on top to create a velvety effect and this soup will make your day! Match it with a pint of light Tres Gavachos Kölsch from Snipes Mountain Brewing or a glass of L’Ecole No. 41‘s soft Sémillon and enjoy a refreshing beverage with the rich soup.
Finally, swing by for Monday Trivia Night! Themes for tonight’s trivia include Russian Military Movies, March Madness, Lady Rappers, and “12 Inches of History” (a category chosen by last week’s winners). Show up at 6:30 p.m. (or earlier to get a good seat) and join in the nerdy fun!
Our fabulous Fresh Sheet special this weekend is Chef Justin’s mouthwatering Grilled Pork Chop. A hunky dish served with house-made Mustard Cream Sauce, sautéed Spinach, and fluffy Mashed Potatoes, this is gourmet comfort food made to stick to your ribs on a chilly day like today. Your chop and rich sides will pair perfectly with a glass of Pike Brewing‘s rare Fresh Citra Hop Ale, Wolf in the Woods, or the soft Davenlore Recovery Red blend.
This weather also calls for a cozy bowl of homemade soup, don’tchyathink? Good thing Chef is making his feisty, slightly spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup. Tender bites of gently shredded chicken swim in a hearty broth with crisp, freshly chopped veggies. Garnished generously with cilantro and served with locally-baked tortillas, this dish will warm your hungry belly and your foodie heart. Match your bowl with a glass of Oakshire Brewing‘s light Watershed IPA or a bright, citrusy Pinot Gris from Canoe Ridge Winery. So bundle up and come on in, we’ve got a plate/pint/party waiting for you!
Seafood lovers are in for a treat this weekend! Nothing compares to Chef Justin’s Blue Marlin Steak entrée. These tender filets are marinated in a complex and delicious mélange of herbs, then grilled and served over our unique Roasted Kennebec Potatoes and plated with gorgeous Sautéed Baby Kale Greens. Pair your delicate marlin with Canoe Ridge Pinot Gris for a soft, floral bouquet or a pint of Topcutter IPA from Bale Breaker Brewing to enjoy that crisp hop bite.
Also, our luscious Soup of the Day is Chef’s rich Vegetarian Zucchini Soup. This creamy composition will have you craving more spring veggies and the perfect seasoning makes a bowl of this soup more than just a meal. Match your bowl with a buttery Chardonnay from Kiona Vineyards or River City Brewing‘s Golden Girlfriend Ale for the ultimate flavor relationship. Enjoy!
Tonight and tomorrow, Chef Justin is celebrating the newly returned sunshine with a flavorful mid-week special: crispy Pan-seared Salmon served over Roasted Root Vegetables with a side of savory and tender Spinach.

Pair this fantastic plate with a pint of crisp Lighthouse Lager from Ice Harbor Brewing (made right here in Kennewick, WA) or a glass of buttery, rich Kiona Vineyards Chardonnay. Raise your glass to warmer winds and kinder weather!
Lastly, our Valentine’s Day Dinner reservations have officially filled up! Thank you so much, Fox and Bear patrons, for deciding to let us wine and dine you. Our flavors will seduce you no matter what and we look forward to filling the pub with a night of love.
