If you are in Grafton, it is certainly worth a trip uphill to see the view from Aerie's Winery. If you are afraid of heights, I would not recommend it. We went here on Memorial Day and although there were plenty of customers, we had...More

If I am the 1st person to order my food, I don't expect to get my food last. The waiter (awesome) said my meal was on the house. 15 mins later he said it wasn't. He would have to pay out of his pocket. I...More

Sitting high on a bluff, the view of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers is fantastic! Seating is arranged so every table can see at least part of the view. Plenty of outdoor seating as well. The main attraction is the ambiance. Menu is limited. Main...More

While they do not actually make wine, they gave a good selection on hand. It's a beautiful spot with a perfect view of the river. Makes for a lovely day trip.

If you're looking for a laid-back place to grab a glass of wine and have a snack, this is the perfect place. Since it's on top of a huge hill, the outdoor seating offers glorious views of the Mississippi River and surrounding wooded land.

I would like to have prices for 20 for a 60th Anni. And do you think older people could make the drive up to the restaurant. Do you serve family style?

They also provide a shuttle when parking on top is full or if you choise not to drive up. I'm not sure of the shuttle schedule so I would check with them.
