We just stopped to sample the wine. Loved the atmosphere. Wine was just okay. You get a cute free glass with the sample.

We had bought a group-on to Old Firehouse Winery. We went and received the dry wine sampler and the sweet wine sampler. We had a great time trying all the different wines and we also received a complementary glass and corkscrew. Laid back atmosphere.
We visited in December 2013 and there is nothing redeeming about this place in the winter. A Groupon attracted us initially, and repelled us when we arrived. The restaurant was dead and it was icy/snowy outside so we could not enjoy the outdoors. In all fairness, it does have a nice location lakefront on Lake Erie and the outdoor area looked nice so this is probably a much better destination in the summertime. Other reviews online commented that the entertainment is very good - they have an outdoor bandshell but naturally it was vacant during our visit. The wine was as to be expected for Ohio wines...generally fairly sweet, however they do offer a couple of semi-dry reds that were surprisingy very nice. We'll return again when the weather is better to give it a second try...unless your are a cheeseofile and want the largest basket of cheese cubes served with crackers that you've ever set your eyes on, you might want to wait until the weather is better to give it a try.
We stopped here to taste the wine and possibly have lunch. It was not very busy, yet the service was slow. We bought a tray of wines to taste. We did not like one of them and we certainly don't consider ourselves to be picky when it comes to wine. We were going to order lunch, but the server never made her way back to take our order, so we just left. They have a nice location, but I would not return.
We never really come here to eat. We have eaten here once or twice. Not really that good. Average bar food. The nachos are really good and huge. Share with at least two other people. The wines are what draw people here. We absolutely LOVE the Pink Smash! You get to keep the pitcher after your done. Bring it back on your next visit and get it refilled for half price or something like that.
