As an Arkansan, Wiederkehr has been tops on my list of wineries to visit for years. Largely in a state of disrepair and in need of attention, I left disappointed. The historic buildings are in MAJOR n... read more »
The wine tasting building/gift shop looks worn and a little sad. The tasting staff was pleasant and helpful.

We did not visit the wine tasting here because of the terrible reviews and a family members bad review of it a few weeks ago. However, we did visit the restaurant for an Anniversary dinner Saturday night. My Wife had the Steak and Shrimp, as I had the Steak and Lobster. My steak was cooked to perfection and had a great taste. My Lobster was very meaty, however the seasoning on it was not a good match with the Lobster it's self. My Wife's steak was cooked to her liking, but had a weird after-taste to it. Her Shrimp were pretty much tasteless and again seemed to have the same type seasoning that the Lobster had. My wife had a nice dessert though and I ended up squeezing a few Goose Berries from the back kitchen as these are very good. The potatoes on the plate for these 2 dishes were excellent and the service was above-average. I would've gave this 4-star's had the seafood been better.
My wife and I ate lunch at Wiederkehr's restaurant. Atmosphere has a nice bavarian coziness. Unfortunately, the food was a big disappointment. The bread was stale. I ordered the stroganoff, which was not up to frozen entree standards. The beef taste and texture was overcooked, frozen and warmed up. The "mushroom sauce" was over salted and lacked any mushrooms. What a missed opportunity for decent european food, which is mostly inexpensive and quick to prepare. I understand that Wiederkehr's makes their money selling wine. But their restaurant should be held to some standard of quality, if for no other reason than to promote the brand. No complaint on the wait staff - they were excellent.
The hours have changed for the restaurant. They are open for lunch from 11 to 2. We showed up about 8 min past 2 and they seated us anyway. The waitress was cheerful and polite. Food was very good, and the price was about what you would expect to pay. Over all this was a great experience.
The tasting pours were meer drops. The woman pouring acted like she would rather be anywhere between here. No pleasant chit chat, no personality. We won't go back.
Good wine, but food is over priced for something I wouldn't even feed my dog. Tried them three times already hoping it will get better and every year I get the same result. Two thumbs down on their food. Next time I am just going to the winery and stay away from their restaurant.
