The food was greasy bar food and the wine was not that great. I am not by any means a wine conisseur, but all the wines we sampled were not that great. Most of the grape ones tasted like communion, so if you said some prayers while you were there I would think that would count as going to church?!?... More

Thank you for coming out and seeing us at the winery. Our wines do tend to stray towards the sweeter "communion wine" side of the tasting scale. That being said we do have a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon and our new dryer white wine called Lake Effect. If the opportunity to try our wines again arises these are some great... More

This winery had low priced wine samples so we knew for sure the wine to purchase. The food is FANTASTIC! Highly recommend it and will definitely go again. The music group was just setting up when we left and they sounded great! Love the atmosphere too.

The service was HORRIBLE!! They didn't even come up to see how we were. Never offered a snack or something with our wine sampler. The waitress walked right by us and it was obvious we were trying to get here attention. The wine is the worst I ever had! I actually left most of the sampler there and walked out.... More

Looked like a ghost town in Geneva on the Lake in March especially with the lake frozen over. Stopped here before checking into Lakehouse Inn for a snack and wine tasting. Woman at counter very helpful and definitely not overwhelmed with customers. We ordered a combo fried appetizer and wine. She recommended we get a bottle which actually was a... More

Very relaxed winery with an awesome view of the lake. The winery has great scheduled entertainment throughout the year.

It was New Year's day and only one person was working. He ran the whole time and was so courteous and great to everyone there. Even took time to give water to my service dog and compliment me on her great behavior - and he was covering two floors!

Thank you for taking time to share your experience. We have heard from many how busy Mike was on New Year's Day. This is the busiest we have been on this date in more than 5 years. It is wonderful to hear that even though he was busy he was able to make your experience a good one. More

The atmosphere at the Winery was fun, outdoor picnic area with a live entertainer playing guitar with a recorded soundtrack. The wine is fun, the food is totally "bar food," so don't expect an elegant meal. The picnic setting right on the lake makes for a lovely place to have a casual dinner.

Our first visit to The Old Firehouse was on the Tannebaum Tour. They clearly promote many events during the Holiday season and actually, it seems, through the entire year. The lakefront location is definitely their strongest feature. We walked along the path to enjoy that view despite the chilly day. Heading indoors, we found the staff is friendly and helpful,...
