The new cafe features soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts made with locally sourced ingredients. For groups of 8 or more we ask that you give us a courtesy call at least 24 hours in advance and plan on arriving before 4:30 pm on the day of your visit. That will allow us to make sure that we have adequate tasting room staff on hand and reserve one or more tables for your group. Thanks!

Great idea! Live music, wine tasting, and dinner specials. The food is always good. The service is slow and the musical talent good, however often too loud for the space making it difficult to chat over dinner.

Sandhill Crane is tucked away from the road. Follow the signage and don't be surprised if you turn in the driveway of neighboring house! The building sits back off the road. The facility has a nice bar for tasting and deli. The deck is great...More

We were traveling through the area and since we'd never stopped at a southeast Michigan winery, we chose to stop at one close to 94, and Sandhill Crane looked like a good choice to us. Thankfully we were not disappointed! We were hungry so we...More
