i remember when Baileys had its winery on the other side of the street up a big hill This winery has been here for quite a while but, we have never been before. The restaurant had both in and out door seating. Out side was the perfect choice today. We chose fries to start; both regular and sweet potato and... More

Had lunch here with our 2 dogs on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Almost every table had a dog. They had a lady with guitar singing mellow songs on the outdoor patio. They immediately brought ice water for the dogs without us asking. My dogs had the " Chewbarka" off their dog menu. Our food was very good too with a... More

We stopped by Carol's restaurant on Sunday for an expectedly pleasant lunch with our family dogs! Not only did they accept our pets, they made them feel welcome with treats from their own doggie menu and water bowls. What a pleasant day! Even the live music they played was entertaining.

Intimate restaurant that also has a nice outside patio. There is entertainment some weekends, and in Sunday dogs are welcome on the patio. I love the fried artichokes here and the ravioli is wonderful

My tween daughter and I stopped in to Carol's for a relaxing lunch. We sat on their lovely terrace surrounded by vines. We both had Caesar salad and a grilled chicken sandwich that were really, really good. And the chocolate mouse cake was phenomenal. The servers were friendly and attentive. Highly recommend Carol's!

Stopped here for lunch, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality, atmosphere, and service. I have been to Baily's Winery (adjacent) several times over the years, but had never eaten here. The relaxing and causal-classy restaurant offers a nice and very reasonably priced menu of salads, pastas, burgers, sandwiches, etc, along with the wines of the Bailly winery. The intimate... More

The semi covered patio was nicely decorated. Very relaxing with the soft guitar music in the background. Our dog was treated like one of the guests. The waitress even talked with her....love that! Food was pleasant and reasonable priced. Most items were $13 and the Vineyard salad with chicken was perfect with their Chardonnay.

We stopped by here on my in-laws wedding anniversary trip. We specifically chose it because it is dog friendly but were delightfully surprised to see the special Doggie menu available on Sundays!

Carol is one of the Vintners for Bally Wines and has a wonderful restaurant, tucked right inside of the vineyard. Great selection of food to be paired with Bally wines.
