We always enjoy our time at Oxley. It ia great to sit outside on the patio and enjoy wine and the fabulous duckwings. Make reservations on the weekend to ensure you get a table as it is very popular

Beautiful evening dining outdoors.
Cheese plate appetizer was awesome.
Fourth or fifth time we’ve been there over the last few years and have always been very pleased.
It’s a winery so didn’t expect great selection of draught but was surprised by two good regional crafts on tap, and a decent choice of cans.
I prefer the shade “sails” that provided protection in the past versus the tents, yet understand their limitations in in-climate weather so the tent is probably the better all around choice. Lots of little sitting spots with Muskoka chairs to dine at if you prefer a little more privacy or straight out door unprotected dining.
We really like this place!!!!!

Seated/served quickly. Server knows her stuff. Very relaxing start with Chardonnay on the so-pretty, airy patio with lake breezes and fans so didn’t notice the heat. -snapping cold, iced buck-a-shuck oysters on Thursday. Fab! Schwarma mussels were inventive & delicious, and famous Sticky Pickled Duck Wings. Guys went nuts. Shared tastes of entrees Arctic Char, lamb Agnolotti and Chef’s special vegan dish (forget the name) - all well-balanced dishes with special touches that all agreed we would order again. Nice bottle of Aux wine and, paced ourselves then 4 of us shared 3 seriously, totally-worth-every-calorie desserts! Apple crumble, dark chocolate flourless, & an amazing pie. Unique fresh flower arrangements everywhere. Just delightful!

We found this place to be very relaxing with beautiful trees and vegetation all around witha jazz band playing in the background. We enjoyed a very tasty roasted pepper soup and a delicious burger for the main course. After dinner we were able to move closer to the band to relax and enjoy the music!

Ordered medium well steaks, got them charred and dry. Sides were burned, over cooked carrots and baby potatoes. No colour to the plate, everything looked brown.

I brought an out of town friend here for lunch as part of our North Erie Shore tour. We both had a great lunch outdoors on a lovely late spring afternoon with live music playing in the background. She was suitably impressed with this marvelous Essex County venue. What a treat!

My fiancé’s birthday was great! The server kept the kitchen open for us as we were running late compared to our party at the table. We have a lovely time. The tent and lights were amazing to sit under!! We only wished that the fire was on and that we could have had some wine after dinner. Our meal was great. Dessert was awesome! Always a 5 star dinner

Atmosphere was great with live music! Had family visiting out of town. But for the second time in as many years menu WAs without duckwings which we were all interested in having. Service was a bit behind with number of tables slow in getting a second glass of wine. Overall though still enjoy then outdoors.

Had a wonderful Mother's Day lunch at Oxley Estate Winery! Everything was great - the wine, the meal (Lake Erie yellow perch all the way!), the ambience, the service (Kristy was a sweetheart) plus you can purchase a few bottles of wine on the way out. Even on a soggy day it was a cozy place to be. We'll be back in the summer when they have live music! Thanks for a great afternoon.

Mother’s Day brunch was very good! Menu selections all had a nice twist/something unusual without any strangeness. Staff aim to please! Best feature is fresh local veggies from within the winery (white asparagus pickled at Lakeside and added to Caesar was noteworthy)! Asperasgus soup was warm and comforting.
