Their sangria is good. There staff lacks something to desire. They don't seem to care to keep your patronage. They literally started turning off the lights and music 30min prior to closing the last time we were there. They had scheduled closing at 6pm that...More

Not a large selection of wines. Friendly staff. They had a band that was good. It seemed like a good family atmosphere. Try the Sangria.

Laid back environment. Great atmosphere and views. Look for their sangrias and holiday, seasonal wines
