Enjoy the atmosphere!

The wine is average, the food ranges between poor and excellent, and the service is almost always slow. But, dining outdoors with a view out over the lake and almost-always live music help to make up for this. I'd say everyone should visit at least once and determine for themselves.

Good wine and fun atmosphere. Live entertainment keeps thing rollin! JoJo makes sure everything is up to standard. I have been eating here spring, summer, fall and winter. The Lake Erie view is excellent in all seasons.

We had a lunch and small wine tasting here. We had wrap sandwiches and fries. Food was good but the service was a bit slow, but they were very busy.

There were 4 of us and we went in here first on our wine-tasting adventure. The people were O.K. They weren't overly friendly, but they weren't rude either. There was only one other couple in there. We got a wine-tasting group of sweet wines, but all of them tasted like vinegar. None of us really cared for them, but maybe... More

Another couple and ourselves went away for a weekend. We selected Ashtabula and Geneva on the Lake in Ohio as it was only a few hours away. We toured covered bridges and wineries. However when we got here we were disappointed. We thought the place needed a good cleaning for starters. The waitress was by herself and the food is... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we pulled up for the dinner theater, but when we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised!!! They had completely transformed the room, the actors were in character the entire time, they did a wonderful job and the food was great!! If you get the chance.....GO!!!!! We are considering planning another overnight trip again... More

The wine burgers use to be excellent but now don't seem to be marinated in wine very long and quality of premade burger patty is not the same. The roasted red skin potatoes are still excellent.

We came to Geneva on a Sunday, it was a spur of the moment idea. Always love visiting here! My husband and I picked up my parents and off to Geneva, our main reason for coming here is to have food and drinks at The Old Firehouse Winery. We have never come here and not had a great time!

Ok, let's not kid ourselves....this isn't Napa. But it's fun and on the "strip" so you sort of know what to expect. Often there is live music and a good view of the lake. Suit and ties are not necessary.
