Couple of important things. The view of the rivers, countryside and town from 300+ feet above the Illinois and Mississippi rivers is spectacular! Breakfast is only served Friday, Saturday and Sunday at least now. Amy is a great waitress and the service was outstanding. Breakfast was also very good, excellent really considering the price. Fixed as requested and delivered hot.... More

Sitting high on a bluff, the view of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers is fantastic! Seating is arranged so every table can see at least part of the view. Plenty of outdoor seating as well. The main attraction is the ambiance. Menu is limited. Main focus on the adult beverages. Suitable for children? IMO, not really. Wait staff is very... More

This place can't be beat as far as the scenery...like being in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Not really fair to rate ALL appetizers seeing that I only had two....I was not impressed with the bread and oil. Although supposedly seasoned, I thought the oil was tasteless - in fact, I thought it was even a little funky tasting.... More

While they do not actually make wine, they gave a good selection on hand. It's a beautiful spot with a perfect view of the river. Makes for a lovely day trip.

If you're looking for a laid-back place to grab a glass of wine and have a snack, this is the perfect place. Since it's on top of a huge hill, the outdoor seating offers glorious views of the Mississippi River and surrounding wooded land.

Our waiter was extremely awesome. He made a birthday disaster alto better for my spouse. We had the mussels, flatbread spinach salad, Aires salad, and ahi tuna. All of the dishes were wonderful. The Chammbourcin wine I give it a two thumbs up. Thank you for such a great dinner. The views ate absolutely beautiful as well.

My boyfriend and I came here for our 6 year anniversary over the weekend and it was absolutely stunning. I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked it but I am so glad we did. Aerie's has a lodge that we stayed at which was very accommodating and the winery is just a few steps away. It has a... More
