Food and wine was great! Welcoming was not so much. Lady at the front was not really welcoming or friendly! My original reservations was at 1:45 pm, we arrived at 1:10 because I thought I reserved the table at 1:15. The lady said you have to wait at least 30 mins. I opened my Opentable app right in front of her and reserved the table for 1:30 pm. Also, there is only one small bench, there were at least 6 people were waiting to be seated, so if you have to wait, you will have to stand or go for a walk. Again, the older lady at the front didn’t seem like she cared for the guests! I haven’t experienced this type of welcoming in a loooong time.This was my first time and I also brought a friend out of state. I was pretty disappointed, most likely not going to be back!

The food and service were both phenomenal. Appetizers were generous. The duck entree was perfectly cooked. And the crab cakes were all crab and no cake!

I found it very rude and off putting that when the hostess was seating us she said " please limit your visit to 90 minutes, we are very busy tonight!" We had a reservation and were very much looking forward to enjoying our "date night" at Mermaid Winery. Needless to say that was our first and last visit.

It was not crowded inside or out which was perfect during this hectic time. Food was great and it was quiet enough even outside to have a business conversation.
In the past I have thought your prices to be a little high but this time seemed just right.

We sat on the patio which was very lovely. We were there for lunch so the menu was a little limited. The grilled cheese sandwich was amazing and my husband ordered hamburger hamburger which was also very good. The wine was delicious!

This was our 2nd time dining here and they did not disappoint. Mallory our server was fantastic, as was the food. Both times food and service was outstanding. In addition, we picked up our wines for our monthly wine club and they allowed us to open one of the bottles with no corking fee. Highly recommend!

I’ve been to this location a few times, but today the service was absolutely sub-par. They stuck our group out in the patio corner where our server seemed to have forgotten us for long periods of time. Normally however, the service is great.

The wine flights were only shared verbally, with “red or white” denoted without information on varietals. Asked for a book/list of the wines included, but again a verbal explanation saying some flights had “2 reds, 3 whites and others had 3 reds, 2 whites.” The food was fine and the staff was friendly, just wish we could’ve learned more about the wines before ordering.

the light fare lunch menu has something for everyone's taste. Along with the main item you have a choice of fries or salad and choice of wine. All included in the price. What a deal. Everything is worth trying.

We were 2 couples and came for a wine oriented lunch. We had a fabulous time. The wine flights are served in a spectacular fashion with big glasses so you can really enjoy the wine. We all felt the selection of wines for the flights were excellent. The food was great although we would have preferred a different condiment for the calamari. The fish tacos were excellent. Overall a great experience and we are looking forward to going back
