    Just not a physically welcoming place. LOUD music, harsh acoustics. Went on a Sunday told they were out of many things (burgers!?!) but were told after we had ordered. Because they are farm to table we were told. Food was ok. Pizza was miniscule and practically cold. Very nice view, though.

    Newport Vineyards & Taproot BreweryResponded on April 25, 2022We're very sorry to hear that the food and noise level was not acceptable. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

    Our server, Darcy, was phenomenal. The wine & beer flights were a great choice. Can’t speak too much on the food. We only had a cheese board, but it was very good. Highly recommend & will go back.

    Newport Vineyards & Taproot BreweryResponded on April 25, 2022Fantastic! Thank you for the amazing review! We are glad you enjoyed the wine and our server Darcy, who we think is phenomenal as well. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Cheers!

    Super cool vibe on a beautiful property. Service was wonderful and the food was delivered. Got the pretzels as an app and for dessert because they were so dang good! The cranberry sour beer was top notch. Can't wait to visit again.

    Pastrami was outstanding! Hamburger was really small with 3 different bites into something overly chewy & hard. I do not recommend it at all. Poor quality for burger. Server was attentive. Wine was great. Liked the Brix restaurant much better.

    Had a wonderful leisurely lunch at Newport winery. We enjoy the fact that they offer both beer and wine flights plus great food. Service was excellent. Plus they have one of the most interesting gift shops in the state where you can also pick up their wines. Great experience.

    Great food and drinks! Wish that there wasn’t a time limit for the table but we were able to get a drink at the bar and find another high top table to stand on the patio, so not a huge issue.

    Newport Vineyards & Taproot BreweryResponded on April 18, 2022Great! We are glad that you enjoyed your food and drink! At the moment, we have certain time limits on tables depending on the day, so that guests who travel from all over can experience our vineyard/winery.

    Charcuterie board was lacking compared to the price charged. Chicken sandwich had small piece of chicken thigh and big biscuit for $17. Food not worth price paid. Music very load, could hear person speaking across the table.

    Never disappoints! We enjoyed the buy one get one deal for Restaurant Week. Wine and beer choices were good. Tranquility is a white blend that was perfect for spring🌸 Cranberry Sour was awesome! Got a 4-pack to go. The regularly changing menu is fresh and creative. The cheese and charcuterie boards are epic & Easter sweet treat board was to die for. Our server Dave was the bees knees, to say the least. Attentive and knowledgeable. Can’t say enough good things about this. Make a reservation during the week to beat the visitor rush. This place never skips a beat :)

    My wife and I stopped by and ordered the cheese board and a flight of beer. Very happy with the service, food, and beers. Cheese board extras included figs, dates,honey, nuts, apricots cranberry compote, bean sprouts,as well as assorted crackers and cheeses. All 4 beers were examplary, pilsner( mild and refreshing) double IPA( nice and hoppy) lucky lucy special ( stout with coffee and vanilla), and Boat( bourbon oatmeal stout). Go, check it out.

    Love the atmosphere here. Made the mistake of reserving a high top for 4 though. There really is not enough room and no place for purse or jackets at table. The flights were fun and delicious and the cheese board is fantastic. The mini pizza was very good but I felt the crust was a bit bland and they were pricey. We were seated very close to the musicians so it was too loud but we got used to it and did enjoy the music. Overall great time with friends!

    The food was good, the wine was marginal. I spoke to waitress regarding a wine that had gone bad ( bad bottle, wine was carbonated and shouldn’t have been). Received an eye roll and it was replaced with a good glass.

    I had read sensational reviews so that is why we went. My husband's burger was very small. My corned beef was very fatty! The taste from the smoked way they cooked it was very nice just too fatty. They gave you potatoe chips and they were overcooked (almost burned). Why not go the extra mile and give waffle fries. Wines and beer was fine. I just think the food could be so much more.

    Newport Winery has both wine and beer tasting and you can order flights of either type. So wine lovers and beer lovers can come together for a fun time. The menu has varied options for all tastes and the portions are large and satisfying. If you're coming on a weekend, make sure to get reservations, as the restaurant fills up quickly. With the tasting room and restaurant sharing a room, it gets quite noisy, but still a fun place to spend an afternoon or evening.
