I have eaten at the Old Firehouse Winery multiple times. To be honest I have had great dishes and then some mediocre dishes. The food isn't the reason why I come back. It's the atmosphere of being able to drink wine or have a cocktail and be by the lake and watch the sun go down and of course the... More

Visited the last week of June. Sat outside. It was a chilly night so they had heaters fired up which was really nice. Also enjoyed live entertainment on the outdoor stage. Beautiful setting with the lake, sunset, and ferris wheel. The food was good but a bit pricy for what it was. My son had an excellent burger. The wine... More

The winery was easy to find and near a tourist area. There was plenty of free parking. The building is really cute with a tone of firehouse memorabilia. The first group of staff members were chatting and didn't acknowledge my presence. I ask if I could walk around to view the place before being seated, they said sure. When I... More

This is an ok winery when it comes to the Geneva wine tours. A cool spot for firefighters to check out because of the memorabilia and all the patches stuck to the rafters. The wine is ok but they do make awesome wine slushies and wine mixed drinks! The view is great and the food is good too!

Stopped in here to taste wines. Locals invited us to sit with them. Gave us great information of things to do and see. Helped us get a place to stay for the night. Wines outstanding. Food was good also.

The wines are priced well. The tasting tray is out of plastic cups which I am never crazy about. The walls where lined with fire equipment. Pretty view of Lake Erie here. Not any communication from the staff. You just get your tray and go try the wines on your own.

This place is filled with firehouse decor... fire extinguishers as hanging lights, fire helmets as wall hangings and numerous fire truck toys. We had a sampling of wine with several that we really enjoyed. Another plus for my husband was that they also served beer.
