Old Firehouse Winery

5499 Lake Rd E, Geneva OH 44041
$$ American

A quaint and enticing winery located right in the heart of Geneva-on-the-Lake. The name, Old Firehouse Winery, summarizes the atmosphere; an eclectic collection of fire paraphernalia and the fact that this was indeed the first Firehouse in Geneva-on-the-Lake. Besides its historic charm, much of the enjoyment in visiting the Old Firehouse is in its setting: the Lake Erie Shoreline.

During the Summer months, the large, meandering patio and gazebo overlooking Lake Erie features a full service menu with dishes ranging from sandwiches to ethnic foods, to Barbecue chicken and ribs. Old Firehouse is known not only for its fine food; almost of the eighteen wines have at one time won medals in statewide competition. Nightly entertainment is featured seven nights throughout the summer.”

Overall great experience! We were disappointed in the meat and cheese try as some of the cheese was dry and hard and some of the crackers were stale.

Maybe a little more "heat" as February temps by the Lake get down to single digits! Igloos are quite unique.

Overall experience was good and would do it again. Waitress was excellent. Only drawback was length of time to get the food. It was an hour from time of putting order in and only a half hour until we had to leave. The wait wouldn't have been such a problem if we had been able to take more time eating.

We had a great time in our igloo but service & food could be a little better. We had to ask for & remind our waitress for several things throughout the service. I would definitely go back again in the summertime.

The outside dining in the igloos was very nice. It was a little on the cold side and the food was just average. However our waitress was amazing and our family had an amazing time.

The igloos are a very fun idea and we enjoyed the experience for our little birthday party. (I was glad it was not a warm day) However, it was very dirty in there. Everything we touched felt sticky and dirty witch made it uncomfortable to eat. There was food and ketchup on the ground from previous users. We arrived early and all the igloos were empty, so not sure how long the food was on the ground. Seems to me that a broom and a long handled dust pan wouldn’t take up too much time between visitors. The ketchup seemed like it was there quite awhile. I realize this is an outside resort restaurant not a fancy restaurant but it’s also not cheap here for food and wine. A little cleaning would have made the experience much better. I’m glad I experienced the igloo but not sure that I would do it again.
