This was my first visit. The ambiance was everything and more! Who would not want to eat dinner in a castle. The service was top notch. The food menu was small but I prefer it that way rather than being overwhelmed. You definitely get your money’s worth. I would recommend bacon dates and bread basket for starters. Then either the pork chops or KC strip for dinner. For dessert you must get the blackberry raspberry cobbler. My friends are already planning to go back in a few weeks for a wine/dinner event. My only critique would be was sitting in the second floor. Even though it was May 1, it was stuffy and very warm. I would try to sit either on the first floor or outside.

We had the wonderful opportunity to meet the spectacular owners of The Wandering Vine. Our waiter listened to every comment, even when not directed specifically at him, and made the experience so personal. It was an outstanding experience and I cannot wait to do it again.

We had such a good time at The Castle for a birthday lunch. The food was excellent, the company perfect, the service more than we expected. This building has a special place in our hearts. Our grandparents lived here with an aunt & cousin for 20 years in the 1950"s and 60"s and we're so happy it's going to be well cared for. The new owners get an A+ and our family will be enjoying many good meals & times here.

Besides the historic beauty and ambience of the castle, the wine was very good, the food was unique, fresh herbs and ingredients just delicious! It's nice that they offer small plates also. Just a wonderful night and experience.

A jewel in the heart of Shawnee. The food was excellent. Service and atmosphere was one of the best in the metro. We loved the story and gift. Don't want to give that away. You have to go to and experience it yourself.

The "local flight" and cheese plate "bite" was good. The beef-bison burger was overpowered by the excessive mustard but the fries were good. An incorrect wine flight was served. The port from Portugal was the worst we have ever tried. Carla (owner) was very friendly but not able to provide details about the Mother's Day lunch, except for the price. The server was less friendly than Carla. They can serve "gluten free", which means removing the bread or cracker from the plate (or providing rice crackers).

Outstanding service from the time you walk through the door. The owner stops by your table to introduce herself and welcome you. The food is beyond outstanding! Hannah Winnett the executive chef is simply amazing with her creativity with food, your palette will definitely be delighted!

We all really enjoyed our food, the service was professional and attentive. The menu is fairly limited, however, and I feel it's a bit overpriced. I had 2 glasses of the least expensive wine and one of the lesser priced entrees, and before tip it was about $54. They do offer small plates, which might be an option. There's a lovely terrace in the rear with tables for warmer weather.

Had to wait over 45 minutes for a table and kept getting told it would be ready in a few minutes; and this was with a reservation. No hostess on staff to ask, so had to grab the random server walking by. Once we got seated, it was no better. Forgot to give us all the menus and then server disappeared for another 20 or so minutes before coming back with correct menus. Everything was a long wait, which really made it hard to enjoy the experience. We’re hoping it’s just growing pains and will get better with time, as we would like to go back and have a good experience, as the venue is beautiful!

This place is a gem. Their wine flights are fantastic. My wife and have been there twice already and the food has always been top notch. The staff is all very attentive and the owners come around to meet diners frequently. We talked to them both times we were there. They have a nice tap selection as well if wine is not your jam.
The large patio is quiet and gorgeous this tone of year. Definitely worth your time!!

Excellent food-creative and delicious! Good enough for “Foodies” and those who want just good, comfort food. Wine choices are diverse and unique. The wine flights allow for multiple tastings during your meal. This is a great addition to the Shawnee food scene bringing some balance to the fast food options that tend to dominate Shawnee and if you don’t live in Shawnee, it’s worth the drive across town!
