Description: The Orange House is combination Bistro and Wine Bar. We offer small plates of various portions. You may snack on imported olives, nibble on a Artisan Cheese Plate, or if you are up for something a bit heartier...you can choose a Flatbread or Wine Bar Plate . We have an amazing selection of wines with over 100 to choose from and around 50 that are served by the glass . Our staff is focused on providing you with a great experience, so please ask about our wines and if a bottle is open, we will happily let you sample. We also have an ample selection of bottled beers and make a great cappuccino or latte! LIVE MUSIC!!.... including Jazz, Blues, & Motown can be heard every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. The staff is warm and inviting and we treat you like family. ******SIP INTO SOMETHING COMFORTABLE AT THE ORANGE HOUSE******

Have frequented this place and am happy every time I do. This night they had a jazz/blues duo playing to a packed house. The owners and staff are wonderful, accommodating and attentive. Great selection of wines and Ruth can dial you in with just a few questions about your likes and dislikes! We don't get to see her husband Bob too often as he is busy cranking out his unique little dishes of exotic meats and cheeses along with some surprises each night. Thursdays and Fridays have live music from 7 to close (usually around 10).

An absolutely awesome place. We've lived in town only a couple months and this has become our favorite go to spot. Ruth and Bob made us feel right at home the minute we walked in the door for the very first time.Great food and wine in a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

Nice , comfortable and relaxing without pretension. Was just visiting and noticed the wine bar ... Maybe I knew about the wine bar somehow I don't know but there it was with live blues and nice people and small plates and I was very happy with all of it . I will go back when I return!

We recently discovered The Orange House. The owners are very engaging and make you feel welcome. They make sure they introduce themselves if they haven't seen you before. It is a small and intimate place and makes us want to go back. My wife is a wine drinker but I am not. My choice is beer. The beer selection is great for a wine bar and goes well beyond your boring and tasteless domestic lagers. Thank you for making us both happy. The food is well thought out and very good. It is "just a bite" so keep that in mind. Think appetizers. Love the concept. Our ONLY complaint is that the live music is too loud for such a small space. It's difficult to have a conversation. That being said, the three times we have been there while they were playing the place was packed. One of the other reviewers called this one of Punta Gorda's gems. We agree.

We are new in town and found this fabulous wine bar on tripadvisor. Not only do they have great food and wine, but they also have the friendliest and most genuine owners I have ever met. They make sure EVERYONE feels welcome. If you can't decide which wine....no problem. Ruth is extremely knowledgeable and will let you taste her recommendations until you find what is best for you. Her first instinct is usually right. As for Bob, her husband, he takes care of the delicious food. They are a fabulous team. And then there is the music on Thursday and Friday. Outstanding!!!! This is a great, laid back, fun place to meet new people. Even the regulars make you feel right at home.
