Ten of us had dinner before an Oakdale Show and it could not have been more fun. Service was friendly and attentive, food was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful - laughter all around.

I like the location, close to our house. Outside bar was nice though some of the folks at the bar were pretty loud. Plenty of tables outside. Food was good, though a limited menu, at least for me. We will be back.

We had an overnight stay in Wallingford and found Tap & Vine on Trip Advisor -- it was a perfect find. Great service, great food & drink and we really liked the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Next time we're in the neighborhood, we'll be back!

HOME RUN. Small unassuming place with excellent food & drinks and equally superb service. Staff/owner greets coming in and leaving. Great and tasty menu. Specialty cocktails and German beer. Went back following day before we caught a show at oakdale. Highly recommended.
