We were at Grand River Cellars for Valentine's dinner. Our server Andy was terrific, very attentive. We ordered from a special Valentine menu and the food was great. The band that night was Blues deVille and we loved them. We have been to Grand River before and will be back again.

We enjoyed our dinner on the outside patio. Unfortunately, we could not stay to hear the band due to the distance from our home. We would definitely come back when in the area

We stopped here last Friday for wine tasting and lunch. The service was great. Shirley was so funny and friendly! We were celebrating our anniversary so Shirley had the cook make a heart out of ranch dressing on our bacon and banana pepper pizza (which was delicious!) The fireplace was going which was very romantic and they had a cute... More

We arranged to get together with out of town family. Grand River accommodated our group on the patio on a busy Saturday night. The wine and food were good. Vegetarian pastas and salads, as well as meat offerings. We never felt rushed to leave. Live music on the weekends. Parking is ample. The winery is on the van transport route... More

We love eating lunch on their patio while sharing a bottle of wine or a couple glasses of wine. Their sandwiches are especially good and different than what many restaurants serve. More like what a fancy cook at home might make. Their wines are good, even very good, but I would not say they're great. But their Riesling is consistently... More

Nice winery and wine choices, but as we were meeting friends for dinner, we were underwhelmed with tge food choices and the actual product delivered. I'd recommend you visit midafternoon for wine tasting and appetizers. Also, the place filled up with the regulars for the live entertainment so it became too loud to carry on a conversation.

It was something called a "Turkey Trot". We had the option of doing that or trying wines. We tried wines, and the... More

Guess we should have done our research. We were there on a Saturday afternoon. The table we were seated at was reserved for 7:00. It was 4:30. No one waited on our or acknowledged us other than the hostess who said you can sit here but it's reserved for 7:00. Several servers walked past us multiple times but no one... More
