We came in for a beverage. Finally a server came to take our order. Both wines ordered were meh. Two of the six beers in the flight were drinkable. Disappointing. We won't be back.

Dropped in while in the area. Really liked the vibe. Great vineyard, brewery, with fine dining feel. I didn't have time to eat but the food that I saw looked delicious. I had a flight of beer. 5 oz. pours, a bit pricey for the...More

Village Vitner is a god place for a couple beers that they brew, wine that they make and if you are so inclined, a meal. My favorite is the Western Mac that has the beef brisket on top.

We joined the wine club but really enjoy the different beers. Food is good but more like an upscale bar food. Service is prompt. Enjoyed our visit and we'll be back.

It had been a while since we dined here but we're glad we returned. Service is friendly and warm, food is tasty and there's a nice selection. Great for casual evening out with friends as the music doesn't blare like most places with a large...More

My wife and I are big fans of the VV. We enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the bartenders and people that frequent this establishment. We are wine club members and I enjoy the beer they brew as well. Food is always great.
