I have gone to the Vineyard many times over the years both with friends and for business. I consider it to be a wonderful place for any special occasion. I also considerer it to be one of the nicest places to eat in the San Joaquin Valley.

I like salmon, so their salmon salad is perfect for lunch for me. The restaurant is a hub of activity for many people in Madera.
