Everytime we are at Suncadia, we also go to the Winery once or twice. This is a great restaurant with the best food around. The steelhead is amazing and large enough to split for two.

This was our third Thanksgiving at Suncadia but we made our dinner reservations at the Hoist House to try something different. Dinner couldn't have been better. While it was a buffet the service was terrific! Our adult family of five felt welcomed; our server got a wonderful picture of us at the table. She was very prompt and helpful but... More

This is our second time eating at the Swiftwater. We did this a couple years ago, and it was fun to be back. We started our evening with wine tasting at the Swiftwater bar. Their wines are hit and miss to me. We shared 2 tastings of different flights. My wife's flight had 3 wines, and mine had for. The... More

We arrived early so we had a nice glass of zephyr on the patio. Beautiful but a little windy so next we had our wine flight and pulled pork skins inside. Heavenly. Dinner started with the clams! Awesome. Worth the 100 mile drive just for those. Then crab orzo and sirloin with mushrooms. Awesome! Brought a few bottles and dessert... More

Decided to visit Swiftwater with friends cause we ran out of options in the area. Just wanted to eat, we were starving. It was a Tuesday night in July and it was around 7:30 pm. Place had a few tables and we were pleasantly greeted by the host but decided to sit outside. There were a few tables outdoors but... More

Very pleasantly surprised. Amazing space! Great food/drink menu. Lot's of fun doing flight tastings. Lots of comfortable space to hang out with friends. Deck is perfect for outdoor dining (although bees are a problem in this area of WA). A must while in the area!

The food was good, but the service was off-putting. My server mentioned appetizers three times after I said I wasn't interested. They've clearly been instructed to upsell, upsell, upsell! The wines are mediocre, but drinkable.

We love this place. Great wines, beer and food. We often pop in for a flatbread, salad and beer or wine. Great service, food and atmosphere.

We sat outside on the beautiful patio area with a view of the mountains and the golf course. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. One of our entrees was delicious - the bratwurst had delicious flavor and was seasoned perfectly! The other entrée fell short of our expectations - not sure if they ran out of sauce for the margarita... More

I visit the Hoist House frequently with friends. The food is consistently good, and a very friendly staff. It can be very busy so I would recommend reservations.
