First time there, ive had thier wines before so figured we would try the food. Beef medallions were perfectly done but potatoes were bland.. Service was great and we joined the wine club too. We wanted to do some samples but ghere was a bridal party which took up the whole area..so we will definitely come back to do.

My husband and my in laws went here for lunch on a Saturday. My husband and I shared a flight of beer and it was really good! We also all had food off the lunch specials which were very reasonably price (~$10 per entree). Everyone really enjoyed their food and experience.

This hidden gem is awesome! It's the only local place to have Not-Your-Father's-Rootbeer on tap (the bottled NYFR has a higher alcohol content & tastes like beer). We love their brick oven pizzas & their entrees. It's pretty tight for large groups but great for groups of 2-4. Great staff & service.

Fabulous restaurant and wine/beer tasting with an adult atmosphere for gathering friends and delicious libations. Great menu with several varietals.. highly-recommend the mussels, burgers, wood-fire pizza (you can sit close to the oven and watch the pizza maker in action). Wine selection is diverse with unique blends, both reds and whites. Staff service is exceptional and personable.

Great restaurant, Food is great, best ribs around and always something new. The beer and wine are just an added bonus to a great place.

We are not locals, actually drove 1 hour 10 minutes to try this place. Our server was incredible, very friendly, always smiling and showed actual interest in our experience. The good was perfect,not one complaint. The only thing that disrupted our dinner was at any given time there were anywhere from 3- 8 servers standing 1 table away from us.... More

I loved everything about this place! Everything on the menu sounded amazing. Settled on a wood fire pizza and it was amazing! The wine was also amazing. Couldn't settle on one so I choose a flight and all were delicious. The atmosphere was nice and service was great. I will be home my back to try more delicious food and... More

Stopped by for quick beer sampling (decent variety but a little hop heavy for my tastes) and it turned into a good wine tasting. Only negative is the owners really need to look at the system for preparing flights. The wasted time and movement must be a killer during busy times, and I'd have to quit if I worked here,... More

I'd give 5 stars but their sampling process (flights for beer or wine) is very complicated. I like that each beer or wine is labeled, but there has to be a better way to label them then to have to find each type of sample's label and affix it to the glass or under the glass for the beer. I... More
