    We always love the time we spend at Rumours which to us is always loads of fun. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. If you love wine consider joining both wine clubs. We joined both clubs the first minute we walked into Rumours in the fall of 2019, and we never looked back.

    Best day ever for my family visiting us for Spring break. Dana and Jerry made my family feel so incredibly special!! I asked my family what was the best part of their vacation and Rumours was their top choice!! The food, service, kindness and welcoming atmosphere made this a very special night. Thank you for such a great experience!

    Great food, wonderful entertainment and a relaxing atmosphere. The wine list is very good, and there are plenty of options for white wine drinkers. There is a large parking lot adjacent to the venue, so plenty of free and easy parking. Highly recommend this wine bar.

    Rumours is the perfect place for date night or a girls’ night out! The owners are personable, knowledgeable and so fun! Tons of unique and thoughtfully curated wines to taste and love with a good selection of beer available as well. They’ve been expanding their food menu and everything I’ve tried so far is amazing. Go check them out!

    We frequent Rumours & love it. We usually avoid live music nights, assuming it will be too loud to visit. The live music was fantastic and though the artist was about 6 feet from us, we could easily enjoy her music while chatting. Really a very wonderful evening.❤️
