We visited twice during a three day stay.

First experience: arrived just as they opened for the day. Food was good and service friendly but SLOW. To be fair I'm sure the kitchen was just getting up and running for the day. Food was of fine, "BW3's" type quality pub and bare fare. We left happy but not overwhelmed with "Wow"

Second experience: Sunday evening around 7:00 p.m. Food good, service still excellent and very quick. You are paying for the experience. More fantastic live music and the location seated on a patio with the lake view and breezes was fantastic.

Overall the food is good. Foodies need not apply but if you want tasty, perfectly great food then you should certainly be able to find something you'll enjoy on this menu.

Live music offered is very talented.

Firehouse itself (you enter via this building) and outdoor atmosphere an obvious win.

If you want live music & scenery (Lake Erie in background) then this would be a nice place to SIT. If you expect even minimal standards on service, food, & wine...then choose another winery.

The service was horrible. It took so long before the waitress even took our order (not busy) and then forever to receive the food. The wine is not great & the food so-so. So what's left? What, I ask, would take me there again?

Nothing.

Five girlfriends visited on a sunny, warm Friday afternoon. There were only half a dozen people besides our group. We did the wine tasting, both sweet and dry, and shared a meat and cheese tray as well as nachos with cheese and salsa. At this winery they appear to have the tastings prepared ahead in small plastic cups wih lids. You are not able to choose your wines as they are preselected. The appetizers were good; the service was okay, nothing special. We particularly enjoyed Reflections on Lake Erie and the Riesling. We visited four wineries in the area this day and although we enjoyed the Old Firehouse Winery, it was not our favorite.

my friends and I have gone to geneva on the lake for more than ten years and every year we give the old firehouse a try hoping that maybe this year things have changed but sad to say it didn.t.. we arrived and to our surprize there were lots of picnic tables availablewe sat down ,placed our order which was 4 sandwichs nothing fancy didnt even order fries. Our wait for the food to hit our table was 1 hour and 15 minutes . my sandwich was cold which i had them take it off my bill . when i asked the waitress why did this happen she informed me that they were waiting to be able to serve us together .so two plates sit there getting cold while waiting for the other two to be done doesnt make sense . so i guess we will give up trying
