    It was very cold out side and we were sat at a table no where near a heater, one of the bar tenders saw us and moved us closer to a heater but it was barely giving off any heat and my food was cold in less than 5 minutes

    The food was good. The sudden drop in temperature from Friday to Saturday made the experience less enjoyable. I realize the weather is out of the control of the venue but more heaters or a wind block wall would have made a difference. I believe it could have been a potentially fantastic experience, but the cold made us want to rush away, as opposed to lingering, which we initially intended to do. The wait for drinks was a bit lengthy because the venue was very busy but the waitress was very kind and worked hard.

    We didn't have any food so the rating for the meal doesn't really apply. I love Gretzky's patio. The drinks are amazing. It was a little cold on Saturday afternoon and the heaters were arranged in a way that was just a little too far apart. The weather can't be controlled by the staff though, so that booking on a cold day is on me. We had a great time.

    It was freezing outside and windy. The advertised heaters were very sporadically scattered and nowhere near tables. We went inside to buy a winter hat and they said they haven't received any winter stuff yet. We looked at the menu and there wasn't a lot to choose from basically salad or few entrees and very high-priced especially to be sitting outside in the freezing cold. So we actually left without even ordering a drink

    On arrival, found out that it was all outdoor seating, which was not noted on the website. Different food and drink menus between the whiskey and beer areas, and was told we could not bring food or drinks from one to the other?? It was windy and cooler, which made the food cold within the first 2 minutes of arriving at the table. Wasn’t as enjoyable as what we were expecting from the website.

    The place is beautiful and the heated patio is great for dinning outdoors even during fall. The scenery is romantic, overlooking the vineyards with tables around a shallow pool. There is radio music playing, service is fast. The food is ok, kind of pub food with a twist, nothing special to be remembered about. The drinks on the other hand are delicious. Overall the place is great for the ambience and drinks, and that is already super worthwhile

    Though they promote “outdoor dining”, they propane heaters were out of propane. No one notified us so we could change plans. We shivered, ate a standard burger and fries, and drank non descript wine that our server couldn’t name beyond “red”. “Dress casual” should be “dress warmly”. Not an inexpensive meal for a relatively underwhelming menu dominated by drinks but a culinary vacuum.

    Although the winter patio is lovely in terms of atmosphere, the food menu is extremely limited. One of the few times I didn't check the menu online prior to visiting a restaurant, and as a vegetarian, there was only one option for me. It was a fine dish, just not what I would normally have selected and would have been nice to have a few more choices. Even for the carnivores, not much to choose from.

    Great views, nice, cool and sunny weather in November. Dress for the cold when you're eating outside. There are heat lamps but not all tables have it. Service is pleasant. Good food, All star bowl definitely recommend. The chilled rice noodle with salmon, not that great. Overall, good wine, food and great company makes the experience. Will come back for the skating in December!

    Having dined at other Nisgara Wineries, I was a bit disappointed that there isnt any unique items on the menu. Very pub/bar items only. Perhaps that is die to the seasonality (Nov1). The food was good but not anything more than a average bar food.

    Service would have been a 4 star..if the hostess was not so frigid she was too interested getting back to the bar area to chit chat.. and would have been nice to get 2 menus when seated not 1 menu to share. Table service was 4 star plus.

    We always have such an amazing time when we are at the whisky bar. The only thing I will mention as the colder weather is approaching is the fire heaters should be spaced in between the tables including the 2 seaters that are by the water feature.

Thank you for a great experience. My daughter wants to come back for her birthday dinner next July:). And our relatives from England thoroughly enjoyed it!!

    A quick stop in for a burger and beer and see why the great one’s winery was the patio to be at and it did not disappoint. Seated right by the wading pond the sun shining off the 99 it was a perfect afternoon.

    Washroom on patio was dirty. Toilet wouldn’t flush and no paper towel. Had to get it from under the counter. Didn’t appear staff was cleaning it regularly . In light of the pandemic one would think it would be well taken care of as well as the Gretzky name on it

    The service was horrendous. Our reservation was for 5:30. We arrived on time but due to slow service we were not able to finish our meal because the waiter forgot about us and shortly before 7:00 we approached him and asked to order our dessert and he informed us the kitchen was closed. We had waited for 45 minutes with no service at that point. Any place that prided their level of service would have made an exception. How difficult is it really to warm a brownie and dollop a scoop of ice cream on top?? Mind-blown by this!
