  • The wine here is avrage at best. Not real good not real bad. The staff is somewhat friendly but not interested in telling you about their wine.

  • Staff was very helpful and delightful to talk to. They had knowledge of other vineyards in the area and could compare their selections to each other. Lunch menu was perfectly priced as well. Food was absolutely delicious. Sitting on the patio, overlooking the valley, enjoying a gyro with a glass of reisling was a great way to take an afternoon break. Highly recommend a visit here!
  • We found this winery on Groupon 5 years ago and fell in love with the surroundings, wine, and seclusion. We go back for an overnight date night once a year and decided to get married there 2 years ago. It's an hour and half from home and it's nice quiet quick getaway. The place itself and wine are great the only compliant I have is the food/menu is definitely lacking. The feel of the place is upscale and I wish the menu reflected that as well however we will continue to celebrate our anniversary there every year as it holds a special place in our hearts đź’•
  • Drove an hour to see a vineyard. Alas, upon arrival I was very excited and asking about what I could do while I waited for a tour to start. My curiosity was met with a simple one line sentence telling me to try a glass of wine or a cheese plate. After asking about their local wines, I was told that Elk Creek doesn’t even grow grapes on the property. Ugh, okay this is all fine if the “restaurant” was labeled as such. Calling yourself, Kentucky’s finest winery is a farce at best. Please consider repositioning yourself in the balance of marketing and manipulation. The fake elk antlers used as door handles actually represents the establishment quite well.
  • Amazing service, phenomenal wine, food is to die for, and not to mention, the cheesecake is better than cheesecake factory! Great place to hang out, make friends, and for any group event! You will not find a better environment and/or dedicated staff than here!
  • Came here for a Valentines Day Dinner. Way over priced. Had to serve ourselves when it came to, drinks, making sure our order was being prepared even though we ordered in advance and had to pay in advance, and reminding them we were ready for each course even dessert. On top of this, no one told us we had to do all of this. We kept waiting for a waiter or waitress. When after 30 min no one came to our table we went and asked questions. So you are your own waiter/waitress. As far as the food, it was fine but nothing to brag about. Also, the cost did not include any type of drink. So after over paying for food, you also had to pay for all drinks. Tea was not even included. There was no water on the table so you had to go get a glass of water yourself every time your glass was empty. I do not recommend this place for Valentines Dinner.
