Nice spot for outdoors meal

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

Excellent selection of wine, beer and cocktails. They brew their own beer but always have a guest beer on tap. The waitress was very helpful and allowed me to try a few beers before I selected one. A sampling of beers is also a great option. You can also get a 6 oz draft instead of a pint. The high... More

Went for a Sunday night dinner with 8 friends. First visit for all of us, and probably my last. Patrons allowed 2 samplings each of wine and I chose red. Both were rather light weight, weak and showed "no legs" at all. I drank water with my dinner. With Cooper's Hawk having several locations, this is a tough market -... More

Had dinner there recently and my husband ordered the fish tacos. I had them before and they were somewhat spicy, but good. The tacos my husband was served were extremely hot and all you could taste was jalepeno. The waitress offered to have them re-made with the sriracha sauce and mango salsa on the side. I tried the mango salsa... More

The look of the restaurant is great with the oak barrels on the racks as soon as you enter the door. I tried three of the red wines and was pleasantly surprised as I am not typically a fan of Illinois wines, but these were defiantly an exception. The food on the other hand was average at best. The pizza... More

We were there for tastings and a light dinner on a Sunday. It is very cool since they have both a winery and brewery at the same location but in different buildings (which is required by law I understand). I had not heard much about this place and don't live too far away - it does not appear to be... More
