Visited this place with family and friends this past weekend. Enjoyed wine and cider tasting, then listening to live music outside off one of the several decks. It is not fancy, but drew a crowd. I can't wait to head back to Southern Illinois for more wine tasting and stops. Would recommend. I prefered the ciders over the wines, but... More

This was our last stop on the wine trail before heading off to Giant City State Park, and my one regret is that we didn't have time to sit out on the deck and enjoy a drink. We arrived around 1 PM on a beautiful Friday afternoon. What was awesome is that we were the only people there for the... More

Owl Creek is more rural than the other wineries in the area. The back deck is basically in the woods. They brew cider and wine, both of which are great. The cider is very good and can be purchased by the pint or as a flight. They also serve a cider-mosa.

Our awesome bar tender with the rainbow balloon tattoo was on point, food was good wines good, having to pay at 3 separate transactions was taxing on my family's patience , do not recommend going after 3 pm, closing time causes staff to be out of sorts.

I sampled the five ciders by ordering a "Flight" which is five 2.5oz samples of each cider they sell. Two of the five were good. The others, not so much. The wines are average. The huge back deck is roomy but it backs up to the woods with no view of anything. The décor is nice and clean inside. The... More

This is a fun little place to try some local vine and cider. The winery is located along the Illinois wine trail.

Visited Owl Creek after a stop at Giant City State Park. My wife and I split a cider flight before settling on one to have. They were delicious on a warm day. It was a beautiful Saturday, so the place was packed. Service was a little slow, but the tasty cider and outdoor deck made up for it.

This is a quaint little place - was pretty packed when I was there. But the staff were friendly and quick to serve. Loved the layered decks but I was a little afraid at how rotted the railings were - DANGER! The band was setting up - very cool location on an old flat bed truck. One bathroom was inconvenient...
