“wine prices jacked up”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We visited last summer and last fall, 2012.

Our first trip we didn't mind the wine prices, but later bought a couple Groupons to return with friends- and guess what?! EVERY bottle of wine had been jacked up $4-$6 each ! Grouponers beware!
Twice they were out of the menu items we had wanted-poor waittress- at least she cared- found out the owners were sitting two tables away from us and they didn't bother with even a word. Classy.

We ordered a few bottles that were out of stock, and after 2 weeks decided to call and see why we were never contacted to pick them up and were told they had sold it and needed to re-order AGAIN!! And at the new 'jacked' prices- WOW!!

They only hurt themselves by this arrogant behavior. Not very buisnesslike, makes you wonder why the orchard was sold off, right?

There are plenty other places to go sample wine and local cuisine.

Don't bother stopping at this one!

Terrible buisness ethic.

Could have probably gone to the dive bar right next door and actually had food and drinks listed on their menu!

Oh, before I end, one trip there, we were booted outside because a larger group showed up! And yes, we had reservations ahead of time.

Wouldn't have gone back, but had the Groupons and thought it couldn't be that bad a third time, right??

“Pay more Attention to Your Guests Please...”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

These people better call Restaurant Impssible, because they're on life support. It is not a winery, & is barely a restaurant. Several of the items on their menu were not available. It took over 10 minutes just to get someone to bring water & drink orders. We received salads promptly, but it then took an additional HOUR to receive our dinner orders. The food would have bern mediocre if served warm or the spaetzel was not burned. (How do you burn spaetzel, by the way?) No apologies, nothing comped, & we weren't even checked on in the meantime with an ETA on our dinner. I feel so bad leaving a review this negative, but only hope it will inspire the owners to instill some change, or save prospective patrons from wasting their time. :(

“worst restaurant experience any of have ever seen”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Never have any of us been treated so badly, rudely, and inappropriately in a restaurant or any other public or private place. It was so bad, that it borders on comical. We had one hour from arrival to departure based upon an afternoon theater reservation, and made it known. Waitress argued about a groupon voucher to start with, 2 of the 4 items we wanted were not avalaible, very small salads arrived with quite a bit of water on the plate, toasted bread sat in the water, but we said nothing about it, oh well. After a 45 minute wait, our food came out leaving us with 6 minutes to eat, less time if you figure in paying the bill. Two of us ate about 3 bites, two of us refused the food. The waitress yelled at us and then the chef came out of the kitchen and was down right abusive. Unbelievable! I have never been treated like this by some one I have never met in my 57 years, seriously! We were told to NEVER step foot in their establishment ever again. Okay, no problem with that. Oh, you might want to bring your coffee with you, because it isn't offered again after the first cup. The play at the Festival Theater made the day wonderful, despite the ridiculously awful start at the Winery and Grill. Shame on them . . .

“Try the Soup!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We visited the Grille on a weekday evening. My husband and I shared an entree and had the cream of asparagus soup. Outstanding soup! Not too fatty or cornstarchy thick. Great flavor. Service a bit slow and they close at 8 PM. So beware.

“Octoberfest”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The food was terrible. It was german sausage that had been grilled and burnt! It was black and dryed out. Friday night at 6:30PM, 2 other tables in the whole resturaunt and it took 25 minutes to get our food. When we asked the waitress about the food, She responded we do all the food in order. and then when she brought the food she told us we had only waited 23 minutes.
