Decent lunch with beautiful views

We stopped at the winery for a wine tasting, then had a bite for lunch at the restaurant. The menu is simple, sandwiches and soups (or at least for lunch). But the food we had was decent. I had a reuben sandwich with german potato salad, which was well made and tasty (both of them). My husband had... read more

With great views, a nice place to visit. Food is general good. While a bit "out of the way", a worthwhile trip, especially during nice evenings when dining outside is comfortable as to temperature and without nuisance insects flying around.

We visited Castel Grisch primarily to taste their wines - we were told they had Baco Noir, a favorite of mine - and stayed for lunch. It being a glorious day in September of 2013, we ate on their patio/deck. The German food was delicious - my husband and I kept tasting from one another's plate - and we had... More

This was a perfect reward after hiking the waterfall at Watkins Glen Park. Cute and friendly winery with some nice wines (love their 2013 Riesling). They also have a great restaurant with a gorgeous view. We stopped by for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The home-made desserts really hit the spot too. That apple strudel with home made whip... More

After stopping at a few wineries on Seneca Lake, we were looking for a simple place for sandwiches. Castel Grisch was more than we hoped for with wonderful views over the vineyards and to the lake below. While a bit off the main Rt-14 corridor, it is worth the side trip. They offer their best wines to enjoy with lunch.... More

After reading an article regarding another winery in the finger lakes having Mothers Day brunch, I called to make a reservation but they didn't have any available. My fault as it was the Friday before. So I googled to try to find another. Again, same thing. I was able to find one more winery, Castel Grisch. Everything was perfect! Great... More

During the "dead of winter" a bit difficult to get to but certainly worth the ride. Enjoyed a tasting with about 50 others on our bus trip from Oneonta, NY......had the opportunity to taste some fine wines and a few cheeses as well.......variety included some dry wines as well as a nice fruity wine. We had been at Castel Grisch... More

Nice setting overlooking Seneca Lake with limited, but good lunch offerings. Also offer unique bottled craft beers. Combine with wine tasting.

We found this restaurant kind of by accident while we were in Watkins Glen. We tasted wine in the tasting room. The wines there were decent, though only one was to my liking. We proceeded to have a late lunch in the restaurant. We didn't have to wait as we were there at an "off" time. Our waitress was wonderful,... More

Plan to visit this one even though it's off the beaten path. Although we arrived after food service had ended this would be a great place to visit to have a meal or snack. The view was fabulous and they have an outside patio. Very friendly and helpful with wine tasting...they even had cheese to snack on during the tasting!

Hi boysx3! Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're glad you had a wonderful time. It's really encouraging that people come out of the way to see us, we know we're a little off the main road, but it's nice when people make the effort to find us! You should definitely come back for lunch one day,... More
