Reviewed October 8, 2012

We were all heading for a wedding, so our plan was to meet at a vineyard. There was no vineyard there, its was a combination micro brewery and wine maker. They charged for the tasting which is becoming the norm now. We all had breakfast and was quite surprised. The chef came to our table to talk about what he could make for us. We had several of his suggestions as far as breakfast pizza's. They were not on the menu but this is a guy that really enjoys cooking and talking to his customers. The food was great and so was the wine. They only had one bottle of Sangria left for the season. We just finished that at home and it was quite tasty. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it gave us great memories.

After just having lunch here today I must recommend this. Today I had the best, spicy Blood Mary ever along with their awesome Cheddar & Ale Soup. We all ordered different dishes, the wraps and hamburgers makes us want to return.
This is kind of off the beaten path, but now that Hobby Lobby opened across the parking lot, hopefully it will get more attention. It is a nice set-up with outdoor seating. The only drawback we all noticed was that the tables were small. There were 4 of us and with the large menus, silver, water glasses,just to start, room was sparce.
Will go again..

Good location. Good atmosphere. Food very average. Staff need better people skills.
Will go back but hopefully they will improve menu soon.

We visited here with a few friends who had been once before and enjoyed it, However this time not so much. we did the wine tasting while waiting for our table. The man behind the bar was not pleasant or accommodating at all. We belong to another wine club which allows you to switch what is on the tasting menu for the month to what ever you would like so we asked if we were able to do so, we were told that they only open what is on the tasting menu and we were not able to switch. He never asked us what we thought of any of the wine we tasted and only walked by to pour the next. Just not at all welcoming and come to find out he was one of the owners.
The food was also mediocre, very very salty. I am usually not one to post or complain however I have never been treated that way especially in a NEW establishment. you would think they would want to WOW every customer.

Best pizza outside of Italy baked in a hearth type oven. I sampled the beers and my wife sampled the wines. Definitely in our top three local restaurants
