This winery has great wines. The staff was very friendly and the place was clean. A lot of parking and seating outside. Definitely a place to stop if you like sweet wines. Try the peach wine. WOW is it good.

When we entered the tasting room/Bistro area on a Saturday afternoon we were asked if we had reservations even though there were empty tables located throughout. When we indicated “no” we were seated immediately. The staff is very friendly, and they take the time to tell you about the wine and the Bistro menu items. This winery does charge for... More

I'm not a sweet wine drinker at all, but some of their wines are actually OK. I definitely prefer dry wines. You can taste 5 wines for $3 or pay $5 and keep the glass. Not a bad deal. The ones I liked were fruity, semi-sweet. Not sure I would like a full glass though. My daughter who prefers sweet... More

The parking is good and no hurdles for entry. All is wheelchair accessible. We have been here several times before and have always been very satisfied with lunch or later in the day. Large rooms for big events and wine tasting. Wine tasting is very reasonable and sandwiches were good. We have been here for events when there was a... More

Despite the signs it wasn't very easy to find the winery. "It's off the main road, into the wooded area, and then on a winding road that looks like a dollar sign", told me some friendly couple in Kickapoo. That helped. The Kickapoo Creek Winery is very memorable because of the staff who are very easy-going, cordial and hospitable. I... More

My sister and I visited for an overnight get away and decided to give this winery a try. Our lunch was awesome, the food was great and there was a great variety of sandwiches, salads, and pastas to choose from. This winery is very casual and doesn't offer much aside from lunch and a tasting. There is no shopping or... More

We made reservations for our Saturday birthday lunch and was seated upon our arrival. The lunch was very good. The wait staff seems a little unorganized, but just go with the flow :) After lunch we enjoyed wine tasting at the bar...very nice. Plan on going again.

Not a fan of the wine- food was great and the trinkets for shopping was a bit cute. After that I was not impressed- the place was not crowded at all....however the tastings that we paid for was slowly served - we were looking forward to hanging with our people not standing at a counter!!

Our group attended a mystery dinner held here in the evening. As part of our experience we were given two corks to trade in for a sample of wine and then could purchase by the glass or bottle. We enjoyed the offerings and most bottles were in the $20.00 range. White wines were nice, the dry Reds were not really... More

I recently (4/29/16) held my wife's retirement party at Kickapoo Creek Winery for abut 80 people. I reserved 1/2 of the venue (the half that contained the bar). For the event I chose a 1 hour social hour with appetizers and a plated dinner menu with a dessert selection. I have to say that all the guests said the appetizers... More
