We came to listen to a band on a Friday evening with the beautiful Lake Erie as the scenery. The food was ok, but the atmosphere is what makes it worth the visit. If you're in a hurry, you're in the wrong place.

I love to stop here and get a glass or bottle of wine and listen to the bands outdoors on a summer night. It is very relaxing. I have had some OK meals here and some very good. Last time we just had burgers and chicken kabobs both of which were good. In the past I had some bad burgers... More

There was a band the night we were there. We did a few wine tastings and like the wine enough that we bought two bottles. It was very good.

We never go to Geneva on the Lake without stopping at the Old Firehouse Winery. You can stop and have a beer or a glass of wine and they always have a band or group playing music. It one of the places which makes Geneva on the Lake what it is!! If you haven't been there you need to stop!!!

Had a very nice lunch here today! The weather was absolutely beautiful and the view is spectacular! I had the chicken Cesar wrap and fries! Huge portion, more than I could eat, but very good! There is a creepy doll in the window of one of the buildings... Will say a bit distracting!

The location is great - right on Lake Erie within walking distance to all the sights on the strip. However, their wine leaves a lot to be desired. My husband likes a dry red...theirs tastes like dirty feet. No lie. We moved on

There were eight waitstaff standing around when we came to the hostess stand. None of them wanted to tell us if we should be seated in a table area for a sampling or was there a special area? Finally seated we asked the girl which wines were on the tasting? She had no idea. Eventually a supervisor came over and... More

The reason we stopped at Geneva on the Lake was mainly for this winery. The experience was different from other wineries I have visited. Maybe that's just how it's done in this town, but seemed like most people drinking in this town had one objective... To get drunk. You could taste individual wines in tiny plastic cups for $.50 cents... More
