We enjoyed our experience. The service and setting was excellent with views of the vineyard all around. I really enjoyed the wine as well. Had the Cab Sauv and the Cab - Merlot.
Regarding the food, I felt that the barbecue could have been more authentic. The chicken was just skinless breast with a couple of grill marks and light barbecue sauce brushed over. It was ok. The chicken was moist but I didn’t feel like it was a true barbecued chicken. The boiled mini carrots seemed out of place. A grilled veggie would have definitely added to the meal experience. We did enjoy the baked beans, corn bread and potato salad.
I suspect with it being the first night open after lockdown, the creative potential for what was possible for that evening’s meal was somewhat limited.
Overall, we had a lovely evening and we will be back.

I will need to visit one more time to give them a fair review. The day I visited was the first day to open patios after a long long covid19 lockdown so maybe they were out if a touch a little..

The staff were really friendly, attentive and overall awesome.
They built a nice shade over the patio area so it was comfortable to stay under the sun. They also have a cute picnic area where you can dine and enjoy wine.

However the food… I am not sure what happened..
We had their bbq ribs and chicken Friday special.. the chicken seemed one of those frozen food chicken you get at M&M.. tasted mushy and terrible. Strong smelling carrots for the side dish and the ribs were even worse.. I will never have that again. Charcuterie board was good to enjoy with wine.

In times of covid it is hard to find something to do to celebrate a 10-year anniversary. However, we found the picnic option at Harbor Estates to be very lovely and quite private. The food was well-portioned and delicious. The wine was excellent. One note of improvement would be to provide compostable dishes so that food could be shared more easily. We had two small children with us and ordered an array of food so there were a lot of open boxes on the table during our meal; having dishes would have made the table less cluttered. Also a tablecloth on the table would have been a nice touch. But overall we enjoyed our time, the food and the wine. Just next time, we will have to remember to bring some paper plates with us.

Great spot for a casual stop in NOTL region. It's folding tables and chair and not fancy per say but the food was good, service was good and the view was pretty nice on a sunny day. It worked well since we were dressed casually and wanted a last minute reservation when things in the area were busy.

The food was great! The wine we chose was not very good but drank it anyways cause wine is wine. I wanted a wine sampler flight but it was not on the menu and then I saw them being brought to other tables so just be sure to ask. It rained for a bit and everyone except our table was given an umbrella. We were the only ones eating and had to ask for an umbrella, mind you they did bring it out quickly after we asked. Other than that the service was fine. I would go back for the food and try a different wine.

I enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich, but the chicken was too small for the bun. Needed to be a bit larger so you had chicken in every bite. Last two were bun and condiment only.

Food and service were good. Disappointed in the layout. Not much ambiance. Thee write up indicated that the winery overlooked the harbor. We were very far from the harbor. The area surrounding the patio was very bland, missing gardens, etc. We would most likely not return there. preferring other winery patios with some ambiance.

The food at the Harbour is great, especially the Pear & Brie panini. The only downside to our experience was that it was quite windy that day, and the flimsy plastic glasses provided for the wine tasting flights actually took flight with the wind gusts and spilling the wine all over our clothes. Perhaps more sturdy wine glasses or even the mason jars they use for water could have been used to serve the wine in.

This was a perfect spot for an informal bite to eat on the patio with great wine!! My husband had the ribs which is a special they offer on Friday evenings. They were the best he has ever had! I’m a pescatarian so for me the menu was a little more challenging. They did have meatless pizza as an option. It would be so awesome if they could offer a fake burger or something. I ended up having a crispy Caesar salad and artichoke dip that was delicious. The big highlight for us was experiencing their “premier vintage 2012” red wine. It was absolutely fabulous! Truly one of the best red wines we have experienced on Niagara peninsula. Fraser, the head of this family winery spent a lot of time with us answering questions which was wonderful. Definitely worth stopping in and enjoying a casual barbeque style meal.

While there is nothing offensive about Harbour Estates, there is nothing truly memorable - except maybe the jellies available for an up charge on the charcuterie.

The patio itself was well spaced and shaded. It would be nice if they could have a better placement as one one side has a vineyard view, and the other three faced the parking lot, a stainless steel trough and shed, and the outside entrance of the tasting room and shop.

The wines are drinkable but a little lackluster. It was our first time visiting and I did a make your own flight ... which were served in tiny plastic straight sided stemmed glasses. The pours seemed scant and there was no way to really “experience” the wines. Not sure if this is a COVID response but otherwise, glasses of wine, cider and their Vidal Cooler, were all served in stemmed wine glasses.

The meat and cheese platter was to be comprised of (what appeared to be) presliced bricks of cheese (perfect and uniform squares), presliced meats and commercial baguette slices. At $30 it wasn’t value for the money or for an experience.

We’ve done other COVID wine and charcuterie experience at other Niagara wineries and this did not live up to those ones.

I really dislike leaving poor reviews however I feel like we wasted our precious time/ lunch hour.
The food quality was very poor and the overall experience was truly disappointing. I really hope the owners read and revisit their strategy to encourage repeat visits.
The salad was likely a pre-mix bag salad, burger came cool and was likely frozen store bought low quality, white store bought buns, something like it was was flipped on a George Forman in the back slapped with condiments - unbelievable coming from a winery and an area where the food is typically gourmet and high quality farm to table.
