We had the best time at 868. The food at the sit down restaurant was delicious and the Grandale wine was our favorite. There have great outdoor seating with fire pits. Would definitely recommend for groups or couples. We will be back!

Staff wasn't very nice, fairly pushy. Didn't care if we tasted or not. Nothing looked even great, so we ordered one glass of wine and sat and drank it but it was nothing special. I got the impression that it wasn't a hopping place anyway.More

Yes. They have plenty of pic nic tables. You can't eat under the covered music area with outside food though, just the grassy area. Hope this helps 😊
