Service was top notch. Food was amazing and priced very well for the high quality. Four adult entrees, two appetizers, and one drink each was under $100.

The food tasted great and service was good too although a little slow but they were pretty busy which could have been the reason. Atmosphere was nice but be sure to dress warm if temps outside are cold as the bistro has large windows and Is a little drafty.

We always love our experience at Childress. Everything from the food to the service to the decor is exceptional. It makes you feel you are transported to the "wine country" for an afternoon! I can't wait for spring to see the beautiful vineyards!

Food was very good. However, Spinach/roasted red pepper dip was very spicy. So much so, both of us had watery eyes! Mentioned it to the server who said someone must have added extra spices. Should be marked spicy on the menu. Otherwise, great meal!

The menu is changed periodically which is nice! I've been going there for 11 years. The wine is excellent , the food is delicious . I've never been disappointed . The most elegant and beautiful vineyard in the state!

We had a wonderful time at Childress! I asked for a beautiful table for my friends surprise birthday and we got it! Also, their wine flights are scrumptious as well as their spinach dip! I highly recommend going for any special occasion or even a nice getaway for two!

Every time we go we say "we should do it more often."
Only concern is every other visit or so, the kitchen runs out of something. With the limited, but good menu being the same every day, I believe it should stay stocked one day ahead to avoid this issue. It would still be fresh and could be borrowed against if a particular selection was chosen a lot over the current day. See you again soon

This was my second visit in two weeks. After the first visit, I knew I had to let my husband experience the atmosphere. I booked reservations and took him to lunch as part of his Christmas. We enjoyed shopping in the gift store also. Last but not least, I think its very nice that Mr. Childress has been at the bistro both times. He always comes around and greets the customers. The Christmas decorations are beautiful. Can't wait to visit again and we live an hour and a half away.

The vineyards is a destination that strives to give fine dining elegance and falls more in the genre of upscale local diner. Service is slow at the best of times, food is incredibly hit or miss, but the ambience/view and decor are excellent.

On my most recent visit my wife and I ordered a red pepper artichoke dip that was ‘ok’ at the price of ‘exquisite’ over spiced with too few ho-hum pita chips. This was followed up by our main courses a warm Reuben with tomato bisque and a grilled cheese with seasonal chicken noodle. To be fair we ordered plainly for our lunch, the Reuben again was ‘ok’ while the soup was delicious. The grilled cheese I ordered however was, ludicrous in a word. Plain under grilled white bread with melted cheddar left to sit for far too long with no pizazz to it, and chicken noodle soup that I swear had to have been straight from a Campbell’s can.

Encouragingly when this was brought to our servers attention she quickly was able to procure a replacement in the form of a Reuben with the aforementioned tomato bisque. This meal came out piping hot as opposed to the previous meals and was sufficient.

I want to love the Vineyards, I want to enjoy their artisan foods, but so far every time I’ve been thwarted by some seemingly comically obvious flaw.

In summary; it’s the type of restaurant to have rare Death’s Wish coffee, but only five weak selections of beer, a menu full of flair and pomp, but executed with the precision of limp lettuce, all wrapped in a beautiful environment and topped with a large dollar sign on the bill.

The staff is amazing. They are very helpful and polite. When I arrived I was quite displeased with my seat and the hostess and waitresses worked it out so I could sit in the best seat. Shout out to Paula, she's amazing. All the Bistro staff is great! Thank you for an awesome birthday. We come often and will continue to do so!
