What We Do

I was talking to a salesman from one of our existing suppliers and was surprised to find out all the services they offer that I was not aware of. So, I thought it might be a good idea to write about some of the additional services we offer that you might not be aware of. 

  • We serve lunch and dinner Monday thru Saturday from 11:30 in the morning until 10 at night.
  • We feature a full bar. The bar has a patio that can be used for private parties.
  • The restaurant seats 120 with a back room that seats 50.
  • We do dinner and lunch banquets in that back room. These banquets can be a sit-down served meal, a buffet meal or grazing appetizers.
  • We can arrange bar beverage service several ways; hosted, not hosted or a variation of.
  • We have hosted many different types of events; showers, wedding receptions, funeral receptions, birthdays, anniversaries and political fundraisers are some of the most common ones.
  • One type of event we will NOT do is a sales dinner. You will not get an invitation for a free dinner at The Vineyard if you listen to a sales presentation. Experience has taught us to avoid these.They are not good for us and most times not good for the consumer (you) that attends.

the delicious cardCatering

We do catering. We prepare trays of appetizers/hors d oeuvres. Our menu, available here, lists over 40 items available on trays or in chafing dishes. The appetizer/grazing style is a popular and more relaxed way of entertaining. We also provide servers and bartenders.

Gift Certificates

A gift certificate from the Vineyard for your sweetheart makes a great present. You can pick one up in the restaurant, or call us and pay over the phone and we’ll send it to the recipient.
As always we appreciate your business. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Thank you for your business and support.
