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

Had dinner on Saturday with our son. Village Vintner is hard to find as it is set back far off of Randall Road just south of Algonquin Commons. We were seated promptly as they were not very busy at 5pm. Our server explained their in house brew specials along with their extensive wine listings. We tried Vintner's white Zinfandel. We... More

Having been to Napa and Sonoma and tasted some really fine wines (with my favorites being in the $15-$40 range), I have to say that this wine is not good. I tried a flight of red wines and they were all the same color, and none of them smelled great. Three wines were just ok (I'd give them a 4... More

We went for a beer sampler and a snack in the afternoon mid-week. The decor needs a bit more personality but the beer is fantastic. We tried a large sampling of their brews and admittedly enjoyed the majority of them. Most times, you get a sample of most everything a place has and you are lucky you find one or... More

This is our new favorite place. The beer and wine are great and they release new wine and beer each month. We have had a lot on the menu and every time it has excellent. Just ask them if you want something different and they can accommodate. The bar is great too, it is a good place to go and... More

We were a party of three who stopped for lunch on a Saturday. We ordered two wraps, a burger and few beer flights. The food was average, the beer was great and the service was good. I would go back and sit at the bar and have couple of microbrews, but I would skip the food.

My friend and I went for the promoted "Pizza and Beer" Sunday special. My friend doesn't drink beer and I didn't really have a taste for the pizza they were serving so we ordered off menu. The Bears were playing and the entire joint was enthusiastically watching the game - most tables and bar seats were occupied and it was... More

Beer and wine we had was excellent. Unfortunately the kitchen hurt my review. My wife ordered a burger medium well and it came out medium rare ( blood running out of it as it sat on the plate). The burger was taken back and instead of cooking a new one they cooked the original burger and sent it back to... More
