We had read a bit about the Firehouse Winery in a flyer. We are pleased that we decided to stop. The wine was good, the view of the lake was beautiful, customer service was excellent, and the HUGE plate of nachos was delicious. On our next visit we will make this our lunch stop for one of their sandwiches.

Outside seating overlooking Lake Erie. Tasty, large salmon wrap. Excellent prices. Backdraft brew refreshing. Can't wait to return.

A lovely place to enjoy a midday meal in the open air and soak in the view and throwback ambiance of the town. The food is plentiful but average and the wine is mostly on the sweet side and a little rough edged, but for a lakeside venue it is overall, a pleasant experience. Better that most of the other...

The winery carries out the firehouse theme to the utmost and is fun to explore. We hoped to dine there, but after looking at the menu, decided to opt for something more reasonable.

We were here in our quest to eventually visit every Winery in Ohio. We know our wines. We know these weren't good. None of them had any nose at all (and I poured them from the tiny plastic cups into the souvenir glass so I could drink them). The reds did not seem to have any finish on them and... More

We got their wine sampler platter - they have a wonderful selection of wines and they are absolutely delicious. The price per bottle was very good also. I come from a long line of firefighters so I really enjoyed the décor in the main building. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The food was very good. I would like... More

When you walk in the door you are quite shocked because it sure doesn't look like the rest of the wineries in Geneva. It is really unique! And they have the best pink catawba wine around. We always buy at least 3 bottles of it.

Food and wait staff were so-so; prices moderately high. The white wine we bought was "Lake Effect" was enjoyable.

My wife and I drove up to the lake on Labor Day weekend and decided to eat here on a whim. The view was good as was the live entertainment and we really enjoyed their Niagara Lighthouse wine. Our service was very good even though they were quite busy that weekend. We both ordered sandwiches and they were excellent. If... More
