We stayed at the Wine Country Inn with 3 other couples for a birthday celebration weekend. We had dinner to celebrate at Caroline's which had amazing food, great service and excellent variety. Some of us had steaks, others fish and others a delicious vegitarian mea. The wine was excellent and the dessert menu was varied. All a perfect dining experience!

Great restaurant. We managed to work our way through quite a bit of the menu over three nights: all excellent and the lamb chops were outstanding! Great staff and good advice on choosing wine and also wineries to visit (thanks Grant).

They serve delicious food here and it doesn't disappoint but its on the pricey side and it is more of a fancy dining experience so we chose to dine in town at a more casual place the next time!

Dinner was lamb and my wife had a steak. Both seasoned and cooked well. I would go back. Service was good at the hotel in general.

This was one of the worst restaurants I have been to in a very long time! When you read the menu all the buzz words and dishes are on the menu. But it seems to me that they have no one with any knowledge/experience to execute the dishes! The soup was cold, my husband shrimp was overcooked and the mussels... More

Great looking menu...only if they had a chef that could prepare the items like they deserve to be. Will not come back to spend a lot of money for flavorless food. Can't imagine that this place gets a lot of return business.

One of our major suppliers held a private dinner for our estimating department here last night. The dining room was reserved only for our party. The dinner menus were customized with both of our companies logos which I thought was a very personal touch. The appetizers were delicious with many types of cheeses, meat/sausage cuts and the best calamari that... More

The 'large' trout recommended by the waitress was maximum 6 inches long. This together with the pale potatoes and vegetables was bland and unappetizing. The rib eye was tough and gristly. The worst steak we have had in the USA. The service was cold and the waitress said exactly the same thing to everyone (mind you there was only one... More

The Rib Eye steak I ordered, for over $30, was about a quarter of an inch. I've had better breakfast steaks.

Adam was the best Bartender / Server .. He made the business trip for my husband and myself the most relaxing enjoyable trip .. He really went above and beyond to make us feel like we were something special. We hope we did the same for him.. He recommended great dishes from the very talented chef as well!!!
