Good food and music

Very nice spot for fine dining and music on the patio. Try the Carriage House Red Wine. Patrick and Susan, the proprietors, are always glad to welcome you.

Enjoyed good wine in a rural East Texas setting. Live music and good friends. It doesn't get much better.

We came here for my moms birthday. The environment is cozy and warm. The service was amazing. We've been to quite a few of the nicer steakhouses in Dallas and Fort Worth and to me this pretty much tops them all. The menu was diverse and delicious and the special this night was meatloaf stuffed with bleu cheese and wrapped... More

A family wedding brought us to this vineyard and inn. The Murchison house was beautiful and those who stayed there had great accommodations. Fortunately, they shared these with us as our cabin was inhabitable. The first sign that this was not going to be a good experience was being told there was no key to the cabin due to another...

A bit pricey but excellent ambiance. Love the cheese plates. Wine samplers available. Best time is during Fall and Spring when you can sit outside.

Had a great time here, both for a wine-tasting, and then for dinner with coworkers. A good selection of truly fine, locally-grown wines, a really nice & attentive, helpful staff, and absolutely delicious food- my coworkers are still talking about our wonderful dinner here! The B&B is Gorgeous- hope to be able to return with hubs and stay there! HIGHLY... More

If you enjoy a good atmosphere, Tara is the place to be. The wine made here is fantabulous.......I really liked the Texas Twang wine. The sangria was good. A cheese plate was served with different flavors of cheese, crackers, salami, and olives. The Tara burger is awesome. Our friends really enjoyed the blue-cheese burger and a Romaine salad. their house... More

This is a beautiful vineyard with a great atmosphere. Felt like a little piece of Napa right outside of Dallas. The wine was fantastic. The Deck wine was my personal favorite. Unfortunately the service was horrible. We had the worst waitress ever. Some people should not work with the public. However the owners were onsite and became aware of the... More

Fine wines, great staff, wonderful wine maker willing to spend time talking wines with us, cozy atmosphere, food available looked wonderful (did not stop to eat though), taste and buy, or taste and sit a while, no pressure. All around wonderful experience, and we bought over 1/2 dozen bottles.
