It's ok. Food is actually pretty decent. Service by waitresses was great, but surprisingly, I was completely ignored when standing at the upstairs bar for quite some time. After a sufficient wait with no service, I went back to the downstairs (outdoor) bar, where the bartender there apologized. In my previous experiences, the upstairs bar offered great one on one...

Kate the manager and her staff offer an excellent atmosphere for all guests. The desserts (cheesecakes) are incredible. Sure Stop when you're in town!

It was good as a pub. No winery aspect to it at all (they did sell wine). The food not too good. Music was nice. Great outdoor area and river view.

We thoroughly enjoy this place when there is a great band. Outlaw Opry is a good country fun band to listen to. Many wines to choose from. We didn't eat there, but others did and said the food was reasonably priced and good for the area. Bars and wineries tend to be a little high priced for what you get... More

By any standards of this quaint village of Grafton, Illinois the Piasa Pub and Winery fits in as well as the river does. We've been to the Piasa Winery over 13 years watching it change hands and grow. Yesterday (8/2/14) we had lunch there and ordered the standard cheeseburger with chips. When the waitress took our order she asked if... More

The pub is one of my favorite spots in Grafton. Unique from the chalk board drawn signs to the painted ceiling and great wines. Although it is small inside there is a lower level, ouside deck and stage out back. Fridays open mic night always brings in a fun crew. Highly suggest Martys homade Mac & Cheese. In the summer...

Waitress//Bar Maid had more important things (to her) on her mind than serving her patrons. Generally the service is OK, and I mean just OK, but the last few visits have gotten worse and worse. Having to walk from ones table time after time to order (anything) wasn't too bad but to wait for her to quit gossiping and get... More

Love the wine (even if its not made there) and I especially like sitting in the cooliness of the room underneath the bar on a hot day looking out over the river.
