We met for a Friday Happy Hour here and we were pleasantly surprised to see the wonderful selection of wines. But we were taken aback by the high prices for a glass of wine, especially during Happy Hour on a Friday Night. We sat at a table in the back and the noise level was modest so we easily engaged...

Always a must at the beginning of date night in Old Town. Excellent cozy wine bar, glass or bottle, great accompanying lite fare or a few larger plates of food. Young and old. Local feel.

It's a small treasure that is not inexpensive. But, it's worth it. Ask the staff to order for you. You won't be disappointed.

We were looking for a light lunch and someone suggested we try the Grape & Bean. We had a great cheese platter and wine. Alison and her team make the dinning experience great fun. Highly recommend.

2 great locations. Especially love the old town spot. Great wine and some of the best coffee ever. Cozy with great service, not cheap but worth it if you're a wine lover. Cheese plates are great, entrees are good but not sized for the famished. But thats buffets are for. The owner David is very knowledgeable about wine and travels... More

After a long day, we sat in the late afternoon sun with a nice Chardonnay and a variety of appetizers. The deviled eggs, goat cheese and tapenade, and pimento cheese dip were all delicious.

you can sit outside to eat, and the food was not bad, but you're paying for the location and that's not cheap

Food prices a little high. Ordered the flatbread and it was tasty, but when received bill it was $24! We questioned that cost,but it fell on deaf ears. The service... More

We met up with friends on a summer afternoon and sat outside at one of the 2 tables. We enjoyed some light snacks, delicious wine and beer. The servings are on the petite side but they use very good ingredients. I love the interesting selection of beer and wine plus they do a great coffee. It's an oasis off of... More
