Our server Trevor was amazing! He kept everything running very smoothly for our party of 12 for a Christmas celebration. The food was delicious and wine recommendations were right on! We thought being put in the banquet room for large tables might feel out of...More

The Hoist House is the perfect place to eat after some sledding fun on the HUGE hill behind them. The place was packed but the food and service were both wonderful. It took at least 30 minutes to get our food once seated, but the...More

Everytime we are at Suncadia, we also go to the Winery once or twice. This is a great restaurant with the best food around. The steelhead is amazing and large enough to split for two.

Very pleasantly surprised. Amazing space! Great food/drink menu. Lot's of fun doing flight tastings. Lots of comfortable space to hang out with friends. Deck is perfect for outdoor dining (although bees are a problem in this area of WA). A must while in the area!

The food was good, but the service was off-putting. My server mentioned appetizers three times after I said I wasn't interested. They've clearly been instructed to upsell, upsell, upsell! The wines are mediocre, but drinkable.

We love this place. Great wines, beer and food. We often pop in for a flatbread, salad and beer or wine. Great service, food and atmosphere.
