    Went for lunch with friends and it was wonderful. The Bistro overlooks the vineyard and the view is lovely. The food was plentiful and delicious. We started with a pimento cheese crab dip served with pita points. Two in our party got the "Trifecta" which consists of 3 courses each paired with a specialty wine. The selection was salad or soup, mahi mahi on a bed of vegetables, and cherry ice cream. One friend got the "special" which was pork shoulder on a bed of vegetables. I got chicken soup and a Cuban sandwich. All of our selections were delicious. The service was friendly and efficient. I can't wait to go back!

    Took 45 minutes to get our food. A band was playing outside. Couldn't hear the music - only the bass - a constant thump, thump, thump. It was like eating next to a car playing rap music for an hour.

    We enjoy great wineries in our home state, and love to find the best in the states we visit. I came across Childress Vineyard’s while doing a web search. I don’t put much credence in most online reviews but I was intrigued enough to visit their web site, and was happy I did. I made a reservation as suggested, and would recommend you do the same. Childress Vineyards is a must to anyone who loves good food and wine. I have added them to my list of favorite vineyards.

    The setting is beautiful with a fantastic view from the dining room. The menu, which is seasonal, has a good variety and very reasonable prices. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided excellent service. The only issue was one burger that was ordered medium came to the table very rare, still cool in the middle. The server immediately took it back to be replaced with a new plate and the hostess apologized for the problem. However, it took 20 minutes for the replacement to arrive by which time the others at the table were close to done eating. That dish should have been comped. The replacement order should have been expedited by the kitchen; the server checked on it frequently.

    The food and service were excellent. I didn't like the fact that our group could not have separate checks. I had to pay by my credit card and then get reimbursed from the other 12 people in my group. I plan lunches for that group every month and Childress Bistro has been the only one I have encountered in 3 years that wouldn't offer separate checks. Also, the restaurant will not take a reservation for a group larger than 12; this could have been an inconvenience.

    I visited the vineyard to celebrate a birthday, and it was worth every bit of the drive. This was my first time visiting a vineyard and I hope every other one lives up to this expectation. Great friendly service and wonderfully flavored food to compliment the extensive wine list. My only wish is to return on a clear day to be able to enjoy the Bistro outdoors.

    Great place for lunch, nice view and reasonably priced wines from their vinyards. Service was very good, friendly wait staff. Menu is limited but still a nice selection of tasty food, salads and sandwiches. Great views over the vinyards grounds. Gets crowded on weekends. Reserve ahead to get a table by the windows. Music and box type lunches outdoors are an alternative to the bistro. Makes for a pleasant afternoon outing.

    We were visiting from New York and this was our second time eating here and just like the first it was wonderful. We were very early for our reservation but the hostess seated us right away. The tables overlook the lawn and vineyard. The food was excellent with all fresh ingredients and the wine by the bottle is a bargain. We were never rushed and the waitress was very cheerful and helpful. We can't wait to go again.

    Took my mom for her 91st birthday. She thoroughly enjoyed the special attention she received from our waitress, Paula. We ordered two different entrees, one being the grouper, one was a chicken dish. Both were excellent but the grouper was a little spicy and that was not indicated on the menu. That additional information would have helped me in making a selection for her. The peach cream brulee was wonderful!!

    we and our friends have visited the Bistro approximately 10 times for lunch, dinner and holidays. we have always been completely satisfied and had a waitress that was attentive and congenial. this is the first time we had a waitress with no personality at all. she seemed not happy at all to be there and it showed in the quality of service we were given. this did not stop us from enjoying our visit, although it did make us feel not quite as welcome. we love Childress and will be visiting again.

  • Tuscany in NC

    Save yourself a lot of money by enjoying a bit of Tuscany right here in NC. A sliding glass door enclosed and air conditioned balcony-type dining area overlooking rolling fields of producing grape vines, a manicured lawn and a small pond. Simply beautiful. The food is creatively prepared and presented. Portions are of an appropriate size and exceptionally tasty. Never had a bad meal at this dining establishment. Enjoy the locally produced wine and tour the winery if you have the spare time. Add a few northern Italian style dishes and you would swear that you were dining in a Tuscan villa (minus the Italian language, of course.) NC Piedmont prices-$$-$$$ (Tuscany prices-$)

    We took some out of town guests to lunch at Childress Winery and everyone absolutely loved it. The setting and surroundings are wondeful and our food and service was top of the line. Even though the weather wasn't ideal that day, you could still feel the ambience and imagine how gorgeous it would be on a beautiful sunny day. Everyone was pleasant and cordial. We also did the wine tasting and ended up joining the Childress Winery Fast Track Wine Club. I would highly recommend this place and plan to go back often.
