    Great Venue, beautiful ambiance. Horrible service, and was not even busy (drinks took forever and they couldn’t tell us which wine was which in the flight, didn’t explain the Fathers Day deal well either) Beautiful sites though, pizza was delicious and drinks were great, just unimpressed with the service.

    My dad and I went for Father’s Day and we had an amazing time! We tried a little bit of everything and loved it all! They are located in a beautiful location that was quiet and we were able to sit down and enjoy an entire afternoon tasting the different wines and ciders! I can’t wait to go back again!!

    Was okay, aesthetically pleasing. Would not rush to go back. We ordered the flight of white wine, our server was quite young and unable to tell us what each glass was. Pizza was not worth the price, tasted like it was made from a cheap frozen pizza box. And the bathroom was an absolute mess with toilet paper that had been tee peed all over the stalls (looked like it hadn’t been cleaned for quite sometime). Beautiful location, would definitely go back if service improved.

    A great place to spend a fun afternoon. The staff are wonderful. The presentation of wine, ciders and food was excellent! We had a group of eight, and the staff was always there when we needed them. Our group will definitely be back for more fun! Congratulations to Alicia and Garren on creating a great spot for fun, food and drink!

    We have been a few times now and it's always great! Our hostess Ashley was amazing! It was raining lightly and asked if we could move in if it started to pour. She checked to make sure there was room for us if we needed to move in and there was. We didn't need to as it stopped raining 😃 Always a great experience and the patio is starting to looking great.

    Honestly loved everything about the atmosphere and the food/drinks were fantastic! My ONLY complaint was that our reservation was for 4 and we didn’t get seated until 4:20 and didn’t get our drinks until about 4:45, and last call was at 5 so we felt a little rushed! That being said - we will still definitely be back, just might try and book earlier next time!

    Was very excited to go to Shale Ridge for the first time - my experience wasn’t quite what I hoped. They asked a week in advance if we could move up our reservation 30 minutes, which we were completely fine to do. However, when we got there they had difficulty finding our reservation in the system and then forgot to check us in as many other guests arriving after us were seated before us. Finally we were seated (16 minutes after our reservation time and we had arrived 5 minutes early). They told us our table needed to be bussed still when we arrived. Food and drink were good and great prices. At exactly 90 minutes into our reservation, the hostess (who forgot to seat us) rudely informed us that our table was needed for the next large reservation. We were happy to leave and were just waiting on our bills. Our server Kim was very lovely. It looked like they were in the midst of doing some landscaping outdoors, so the outdoor swing area was a little less aesthetic than I thought it would be since we had a massive dirt/gravel mound beside us. The indoor picture wall for photos is beautiful. It was quite a hot afternoon and our beverages were getting warm from the sun. Could be a nice addition to have some sort of optional sun screen cover on top of the swing tables for those who might want that. Glad I finally visited Shale Ridge, but honestly won’t be rushing back after that experience. Hopeful it was just a tough day for the staff and not ongoing issues - Customer service could use improvement.

    This was my 2nd time. I brought my bridal party there were 4 of us. We had the back corner swing. It was lovely. Breeze was great, it was jam packed full of much younger women getting married hahaha. But we thoroughly enjoyed it. Sean remembered me from the first time which was completely unexpected since you all see so many people. He was funny and apologetic when the internet puked and I had to wait 10mins to pay for my extras. It was a great day. Will definitely be back.

    Went for Mother's Day. Had to pay $26 to reserve the table and even though they are primarily a winery, they do serve food as marketed on their Instagram and website. When we went to order, they were out of pizzas and no charcuteries were available. Drove an hour to get there and was just disappointed.
