  • This was intended to be a special dinner occasion, and Bookwalter came through to ensure that it was. The patio was classy and festive. Loved the music they played while we dined. My steelhead salad w...  more »
  • Such a great place to enjoy happy hour that might extend into the evening. Appetizers and drinks are a great value from 4 to 6. Daily pizza and soup specials.....but I generally get the cheese plate !...  more »
  • I am.a pain in the neck when it comes to r3views. This is by far the best steak and halibut I've ever had. The wine is great and the service is second to none. I rarely give a 5 but this place rocks. ...  more »

  • Food was excellent, server patient with our talkative group of 5, the enclosed patio was reasonably quiet, for two old, hard of-hearing-guys.
  • If I could give a half star I would. We had a decent sized group so slow service is understandable. Myself and my girlfriend were a bit late and our group had already began the samplers so we figured we would make it easy and order a bottle to split. The price of the Riesling was 18 dollars and it was a screw top. We were also lucky enough to get a glass of water. The winery was about half full or so and there were definitely a few servers who were trying to act busy...repeatedly cleaning tables, wrapping silverware...the waiter eventually brought our bottle and unscrewed the cap (how thoughtful). After this we were never exposed to a menu, checked on, or even refilled on our water...it was ok though we had our bottle..(this was also our first drink of the day). When the bill finally arrived our total was 32.00??? Very calmly i asked the server why the 14 dollar charge? His words " because you were able to dine in with your bottle of wine at your table" dine in? Did I eat? Was I given a menu?? So...14 dollars for a screw top...did you flare up your tennis elbow when you opened the bottle?? A few other thoughts in my head which would most likely be flagged on this review. I could feel myself very irritated but stayed cool..." What would happen if I bought the bottle to go and enjoyed it In te outside seating?" His response..." It would've been 18 dollars total. Livid, upset, sick to my stomach does not begin to describe the feelings. I used to enjoy this place but they will never see me show my face again. This winery brings disgrace to all other wineries which is truly unfortunate. DO NOT GIVE THIS PLACE BUSINESS THAT IS NOT DESERVED!!!!!
  • Beer tasting experience in the tri cities. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, young and energetic. Will definitely stop in on my next tour of the wine country.
  • I made reservations for 15-20 women 2 weeks prior to our visit. I was told the day of, that they would be moving us to "the chef's table" I was told it was more of an intimate setting and perfect for us ladies to chat and catch up with out being bothered. When we got there I thought the place was beautiful. Then the server took us to the "back chef's table". the table was directly across from the servers station and kitchen! The second we sat down I wasn't able to hear the server or anyone that wasn't sitting right next to me over the loud dishes slamming the noise from the kitchen. Our server (Aurora?) was terrible! My self and a few other girls mentioned that she was rude, slow, non accommodating, eye rolling, or just never around to take drink orders. More than half the ladies wanted to order pizza and before we could order our waitress told us they were not serving it that night. So we all ordered app's. 3 people ordered some sort of taco app and EVERY PERSON AT THE TABLE HATED THEM AFTER TRYING JUST A BITE! Right after this I found the owner (she had been drinkingbut was VERY nice) and told her how embarrassed I was of the place and service. She compt the taco's and quickly moved our party out to the covered heated patio. This area was perfect for our group. We could all hear each other and were more comfortable. The topic of the night was the waitresses poor service and the disappointment of the restaurant and food. At one point the restaurant manager (short blond haired older lady, who was also noticeably drunk) checked on us a couple times and was very nice and accommodating but like I said...a little sloppy (buzzed). After all this we decided to just leave and go to Kimo's. There we had a nice smiley waitress that was on top of food and drinks and we talked for hours! I believe Bookwalters has lost 16 customers and anyone else I told about our experience in the past couple weeks.
  • Love the wine!
