Great back deck!

This is a fun little place to try some local vine and cider. The winery is located along the Illinois wine trail.

I sampled the five ciders by ordering a "Flight" which is five 2.5oz samples of each cider they sell. Two of the five were good. The others, not so much. The wines are average. The huge back deck is roomy but it backs up to the woods with no view of anything. The décor is nice and clean inside. The... More

Visited Owl Creek after a stop at Giant City State Park. My wife and I split a cider flight before settling on one to have. They were delicious on a warm day. It was a beautiful Saturday, so the place was packed. Service was a little slow, but the tasty cider and outdoor deck made up for it.

This is a quaint little place - was pretty packed when I was there. But the staff were friendly and quick to serve. Loved the layered decks but I was a little afraid at how rotted the railings were - DANGER! The band was setting up - very cool location on an old flat bed truck. One bathroom was inconvenient...

We visited on Saturday afternoon Labor Day weekend and enjoyed the Water Valley White, even though we'd planned on Whoo's Blush (it was out). One member of our party opted for Sweet Knocker hard cider and liked it very much. We also ordered the bread and oil for a snack and it was delicious. There was a singer with his... More

All is takes for me to think a place is charming is cute decor (love owls, so there you go), lovely location and add in a sweet cat and I'm sold. Include an interesting tasting-room attendant who was fun to talk to, and a beautiful sunny afternoon in scenic Southern Illinois, and what's not to like? We had a great... More
