Solid beer, OK food

We were on the way out of town, and decided to stop here on a Friday night. The place was filling up nicely, but we got a seat quickly. This place has a great, upscale atmosphere! Our waiter was extremely friendly and patient. First, I had to try a flight of their beers. All four I had were... read more

I don't like to post negative reviews unless the place totally deserves it... I've been to much worse so this is merely my opinion and you must check it out for yourself. Went here on a whim and a suggestion from someone who is a picky eater and may not know better. My other half had the beef brisket sandwich.... More

This was a wonderful place to go for a ladies night out. The salads were wonderful as well as the chicken Marsala.

This is a stand-alone restaurant with more than enough parking located near the Hobby Lobby on Randall Rd. When you walk in to the front door, you walk past a number of wine casks. This is most definitely set up to be more of a wine tasting or microbrewery for beer, so if that is your thing, Village Vintner may... More

Been here a couple of times. Everything is good but I always feel that the menu is limited and we choose the same 2-3 items. Fish Tacos were very nice. The mac and cheese was just ...just.

First time we came here it was awesome.. Second time we brought friends with kids and it was problematic.. They were really busy too and the food was not as good as the quiet experience we had when it was the two of us.. The food was way better the first time too,

We have been to this restaurant before and it was tolerable. Not anymore. Horrible Wine so make sure you taste first (if you go) and be sure they bring the bottle! Wait staff was really slow and inattentive. Management laughs at you if you complain. (not kidding) Badly run restaurant. If you want good wine and food make the drive... More

We've dined here quite a bit and they have a good selection of foods for us and our 4 and 6 year old kids. Food is always spot-on and prices are very reasonable. I'm not sure why they don't put a restaurant on the signage because I didn't even know they offered food until after I walked in a while... More
