Wonderful food

The recommendation of Sebastian in regards to the pistachio crusted sea bass was perfect; melts in your mouth. Owen provided superb guidance to the menu, as well as, the wine selection. My one recommendation would be a selection of craft beers.

Atmosphere, service, wine selection, quality of food - all outstanding. Compares with top restaurants anywhere in the country. We enjoyed every minute we spent there and will definitely visit again and recommend to others.

My husband and I, along with another couple, spent a weekend at the B & B and dined at the restaurant. Outstanding food, super service and very personable. The breakfasts were outstanding and the dinner was best hand down of any restaurant we've eaten at. They cater to the customers' needs and go out of their way to satisfy. We... More

Wife and I were traveling and wanted a nice dinner as we passed through Tyler. I asked Google for the top 10 restaurants in Tyler & Trip Advisor sent us here. It's a beautiful winery/restaurant/bed & breakfast. We only tried the restaurant but will make plans to return to the B&B and winery. Excellent service, made special by Jamie, who... More

Just south of Tyler, it is well worth the trip. Every item on the menu is fabulous. The wait staff is well trained and the ambience is relaxing and elegant. There is also a wine tasting room for their very own locally produced wines. Do not miss a chance to visit this unique place.

If you want good steak or fish go here! Also they make a killer Bananas Foster! It's a more expensive meal but worth every penny. Make reservations and dress is business casual or better. Great date night place. There is really nothing negative I can say about this place and we have been there countless times.

My wife and I enjoyed the filet mignon for lunch on Valentine Day. The meal was very good and everyone enjoyed the time at Kiepersol. After the meal we visited my good friend and owner Pierre De Wet. He and his staff has done a excellent job with the restaurant and winery / distillery. If you like a smooth bourbon... More

The staff were extremely accommodating in getting us a last minute dinner reservation, we were welcomed by Pierre as we arrived - a most gracious host! Dinner as always is a highlight of our visits - Duck Cigars and Filet's plus a bottle of Barrel 33 and Banana's Foster - what an awesome treat! East TX best!

Just returned from celebrating hubby's birthday at Kiepersol Resturant. You can always count on Kiepersol to provide the best food in East Texas, plus having excelent service. Our server tonight was Owen. We took a close friend there, who lives in the Hill Country, last fall, and he didn't know any resturant this far inland to serve such excellent sea... More

My husband and I recently moved to Jacksonville, TX (just south of Tyler, tX) from Austin. After visiting the Kiepersol Winery and Distillery, we had lunch at Kiepersol Restaurant. Delightful experience. The food was perfect and Owen, our waiter was superb. Owen was careful to ensure that we were well taken care of without being intrusive. He was friendly and... More
