I had not been there for some time. In the old days you bellied up to the bar for the daily selection of wines by the glass. They were always good. The bartender who had been there for countless years knew the wines he was...More

This place has all the perfect ingredients for a fabulous wine bar, but we weren't impressed. Wine flights are more expensive than the equivalent glass of wine, so pick a glass and enjoy. Rather than the Russian roulette flight of wines. Happy hour 'buck an...More

The usual, walk around, look at menus. This placed looked interesting. They advertise "$14 French fries." A lot for fries - but it comes with a side order of steak. One of our party had that and liked it. Another hit was the charcuterie. Nicely...More

Without a doubt, Vineyards offers the best Wine and Beer menu in the region.Most places will be strong in one of these categories,but NOT both.You've got to experience it to believe it. Bravo Vineyards for raising the bar.
