Great find!

The usual, walk around, look at menus. This placed looked interesting. They advertise "$14 French fries." A lot for fries - but it comes with a side order of steak. One of our party had that and liked it. Another hit was the charcuterie. Nicely presented, great meal. Going nicely with the... read more

In spite of the good food,the too long unacceptable waiting time to get the main dish. Good atmosphere ,the waitress did her best ,the ktchen did not delivered our dishes .Other clients leaved because of that.

Great Choice for dinner.... we tried the wine flights... they have grouped selections in 3's whites and reds .... we tried one flight of each.... it was great... our server was very friendly and helpful with recommendations... We both had the Jambalaya for dinner... as they make it fresh I was able to have mine without chicken... it was well... More

I had purchased a groupon for wine and beer flights. They have great options and they both turned out to be great (tried on wine flight and one beer flight). The dinner options are also delicious, though on the expensive side. Service was great and the waitstaff were kind and attentive. I would go back.

As a wine and beer blogger, this type of place is up my alley. Great live jazz music, excellent local/regional beer list and amazing wine list. Try a wine or beer flight -there are several to choose from. On Tuesdays a wine flight and cheese plate is under $20. Food is quite good too, but go for the scene and... More

We went on a Sunday night to listen to the Jazz player. The atmosphere is nice, wine, beer and scotch selection is very good. We had a number of the appetizers - they were OK, but have had much better elsewhere. It is a nice place to spend a romantic evening listening to music.

Without a doubt, Vineyards offers the best Wine and Beer menu in the region.Most places will be strong in one of these categories,but NOT both.You've got to experience it to believe it. Bravo Vineyards for raising the bar.

Pros: - great great selection of wine and beers Cons: - it's branded as this modern sleek wine bar, all high class - but the atmosphere is for a much older crowd (80's music, 80's dishes, grandma's recipes, people in shorts and t-shirts) - none of those are bad but as a first time customer just not what I expected...

Our three meals were equally tasty, plentiful and arrived piping hot. Service for us was reasonably prompt, friendly and efficient although we seem to have beaten the influx just in time by arriving just before 6pm on a lovely Friday evening. We will definitely return.
