Vinoklet Winery & Restaurant offers a unique experience for those that like to go out, have a hands-on experience, and enjoy wine. Guests will get to grill there own entree on a large indoor grill while sipping on Vinoklet Award-Winning wines. The rest of the dinner is prepared for them and ready in the buffet room for when the grilling is done. The Grilled to Perfection menu offers; chicken, salmon, skewered shrimp, or steak. The New York Strip steak is a favorite that covers over 60% of the entrees served; though, recently we have introduced Filet Mignon, which is quickly rising in the ranks and giving the New York Strip a run for its money.
While each dining experience is unique, A full description of the process is outlined below.
Vinoklet offers dinner 4 evenings a week, starting on Wednesday and ending on Saturday. The Grilled to Perfection experience is offered on Friday & Saturday evening only, unless you reserve a private party consisting of 35 guests or more, in which case, dinner could be offered at other times and days as well but that would be by special arrangement and an extra room fee may apply.
Wednesday & Thursday have their own flare with an all you can eat spaghetti special on Wednesday, and currently offering 1/2 Rack of Baby Back Ribs on Thursday evenings. Guests have the option of dining in the main dining room, the solarium, the loft, and during the warmer months and weather permitting, outside in the gazebo.
Regardless of the day of the week, we ask for reservations to ensure that we are prepared for you and can meet your needs. I like to say, if we are slow it makes sure we have the food for you, and if we are busy then we can make sure to have a table. Fridays tend to be a little more laid back than Saturday evenings and Saturdays can fill up fast, serving upwards of 200 guests. A standard reservation may consist of One or Two guests, up to ten to fourteen, then Parties over 14 are welcome at the winery as well with advance notice and a security deposit. It is common to have guests celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners. But we also have a large number of regulars that just like to come in for a good bottle of wine and a nice steak.
Reservations are accepted at Vinoklet for Grilled to Perfection from five to eight pm Friday & Saturday evenings and the restaurant stays open until eleven o'clock, so it is also common for guests to come early and hang out all evening with friends and even pick up extra bottles of wine when they run out.
