A must stop when you're in the area. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is fun and quirky. Wine is delicious with very unique choices.

My wife loved all of the wines they had. I personally wasn't a fan favorite of them all. I liked a few here and there. The bottle labeling is very creative with the dalmatians on it. The setting of the place in a firehouse is pretty awesome. Everything around was nice. However where you sample the wine is not a... More

Friendly staff, but not your usual wine tasting atmosphere. The wine variety was fair but none of the wines were for me. I did enjoy the mulled wine and grabbed some fast food for the road. This is not your usual sit and dine spot in my opinion, it seemed more like your teenager craving fried food menu options. I... More

A great place right on the lake. The Ferris wheel is a must to see. Patio seating with a wonderful view. Wine is good but nothing exceptional. The bldg itself is pretty neat.

We always make our way to the Firehouse when we visit from Texas. My wife and I stopped in for sampling and lunch. It was fairly quiet, very few people there when we arrived. We are not meat eaters so we made some special requests on the menu and they accommodated us no problem and even took a few bucks... More

We had read a bit about the Firehouse Winery in a flyer. We are pleased that we decided to stop. The wine was good, the view of the lake was beautiful, customer service was excellent, and the HUGE plate of nachos was delicious. On our next visit we will make this our lunch stop for one of their sandwiches.

Outside seating overlooking Lake Erie. Tasty, large salmon wrap. Excellent prices. Backdraft brew refreshing. Can't wait to return.

A lovely place to enjoy a midday meal in the open air and soak in the view and throwback ambiance of the town. The food is plentiful but average and the wine is mostly on the sweet side and a little rough edged, but for a lakeside venue it is overall, a pleasant experience. Better that most of the other...
