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.

This Suncadia based restaurant adjacent to the Rope Rider golf course offers a reasonably diverse menu, good wines, and bar options. Service was friendly.

We held our 50th anniversary luncheon at the Hoist House Restaurant close to the Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, WA. That wait staff gave excellent service, the food was delicious and the view was outstanding. In addition the Swiftwater Cellars wine proved to be an excellent choice. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and delicious way to celebrate... More

The winery is stunning in every way. The building, the site, the area, all of it. Once inside you'll be treated to some of the friendliest and enthusiastic staff imaginable. While the menu is not extensive, they focus on quality and rarely disappoint. Friday and Saturday nights they have live music and the acts are almost always very good. And... More
