We stopped there for a wine tasting (my wife is in their "wine club"), we hadn't been their since last summer/fall and they still remembered her. Great view of the river.. If you want you can also get a history lesson on the islands and area of the river.

Excellent cocktails, appetizers and service! I can't say enough about the wonderful staff at Coyote Moon. Wine slushies are excellent on the deck!

Thank you, Cathy, for this great review, I will pass it onto the staff how wonderful they are. The charcuterie board, cheese plate or cheesecake and wine ice cream are the perfect combinations with your favorite glass of wine or slushie! The view of the river is relaxing and makes a perfect pair with our legendary wine.
Cheers, Cara

The wines were good, just not to our tastes. My wife and I each had a flight. We decided on a cheese board for lunch and both agreed that was a very good choice. Across the street to buy some cheese afterwards. A little disappointed in the customer service. We were greeted by two employees with very friendly hellos when we walked in and then felt abandoned. It was early afternoon on a Friday in Oct. One other table was taken. We were considering leaving by the time we were met at our table. Then we were obviously confused in our ordering and little assistance was offered. But the cheese and crackers were great!

Jimmtrs71,

First off I would like to thank you for visiting our Riverside location and for taking the time to advise us on your recent experience. It is through feedback like yours that we are able to maintain and indeed, where necessary, to improve our customer service that we provide our guest.
While an apology will not alter the outcome, we do sincerely extend one with all sincerity.
So we do not have further complaints, I will meet with my staff to review our level of customer service and this will be addressed. Also using it for training, so staff can help our guest through the menu to order and enjoy their snacks with our award-winning wines.
We welcome you back to any of our locations but if you have any further concerns, you can contact me at the vineyard 315-686-5600. Tony Randazzo, General Manager/Owner

A great place to sample some of the best wines in NYS. Set along the beautiful St. Lawrence River. Sit and watch the beautiful sunsets and sip some delicious wines. Sample some wine slushies or there homemade sauces or wine related t-shirts and novelties. A great place and anchor to Riverside Drive and the Village of Clayton.
