Wine and cheese

The cheese plate appetizer is the best ever. We've eaten there several times and it has always been very good. The servers are very helpful in selecting wines and we usually try a different wine with each course.

We ate here on our way to Tucson and again on our return to FW. I had the salmon both times. It was soooooo good. My husband had Pot roast the first time and fish and chips the second time, he said both were very good. I also did the wine tasting. Delicious. Purchased several bottles of various kinds. Will...

They emphasize their wine, which I didn't find to be the best I ever had, but quite drinkable. The menu is fairly extensive but not special or really upscale. The winery atmosphere makes the experience nice. Location near Messilla is a plus. Staff was very friendly and made a great impression.

Great restaurant and winery. We had a large business dinner here. Not really large enough to accommodate the amount of people in our group, but they did the best they could to make room for our reserved party. The food was great, reasonable, friendly servers and atmosphere was wonderful!

The atmosphere is pretty cool. But the food is only okay and the wine isn't wonderful. - I had a potroast and it wasn't anything special, and even slightly undercooked - I also had a Gewurztraminer that too sweet to drink with a meal. It would have been a nice aperitif.

We went just for the wine tasting - not a meal - and thoroughly enjoyed it. The deal was $6 for 6 tastings (about an ounce each), and this included their premium wines. Server Bobbie did a super job of helping us select the wines we'd taste and then the order we'd have them. He was very knowledgeable about the... More

When I walked in I thought "WOW"! I was very impressed with the atmosphere. The customer service we received was very attentive and friendly...the food was a disappointment. We simply expected better quality. The greens in our salad had brown edges, the dressing was not good and the meatloaf was cut and presented as if it came from a frozen... More
