I believe if you offerred the flight of three wines as a separate libration we might have tried more wine at our dining, instead only two had a glass of wine. we would of been more inclined to try something different and possibly have a second.

This was our first time to visit Childress Vineyards and the Bistro. They have an excellent menu and the food was great. We could not have asked for any better service and will definitely be back.

Beautiful setting & great views overlooking the vineyards. The fried green tomato appetizer was great but 2 of the 3 main courses were void of simple seasoning such as salt & pepper. We ordered the cheesecake & creme brulee for dessert & the creme brulee was awful due to the custard breaking during the preparation and/or the cooking process. Overall the quality of the food was subpar for the menu pricing.

My husband and I always enjoy The Bistro at Childress Vineyards. Their regular menu is excellent. We ate there for Father's Day lunch which was buffet style. Great selection of foods, well prepared. Of course, we enjoyed a glass of the Childress wine with our meal!

Fathers Day Brunch. Excellent variety and quality food. Seats by the back window offer beautiful scenery. Winery grounds are beautiful. Also go for the Friday night music. Would love to sit outside in nice weather. Will go back.

Father's Day buffet, family of three adults, was expecting a more sophisticated setting since it was at a winery. My husband was disappointed with the seating arrangements, I wasn't given an option to choose main restaurant with view of vineyards when booking, and we ended up in an open ballroom area surrounded by tables with little children who were loud. We asked to switch, would even have waited if necessary for availability, but we were told "the computer" assigns the seating and no changes could be made. Food was good but not great, for the price would have expected another carving station or other meat (no chicken on the menu) and better selection of vegetables. Overall the experience was "ok." Our server was the high point - friendly, prompt, accommodated our needs within her ability to do so; I wish I could recall her name!

I have been to the Bistro numerous times from Mother's Day brunch to lunches meeting friends or for the concerts in the summer. My daughter has been attending a wedding once or twice. It is a very lovely place for any occasion. I met up with a college roommate of mine this past Sat from ASU having not seen each other in person in over 28 years. We were given an outside table on the balcony and allowed all the time we needed to catch up and talk. Food, wine and conversation was fabulous. Thanks!

The only downside this time was the noise level which was probably because it was Father's Day weekend and also,,, I think they were set up for a wedding the next day. The tables were all occupied and conversations were lively. However we still had an enjoyable lunch and will go back again for sure!

We arrived 45 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Great wait person who was knowledgeable about the menu and wine selections. Perfect view of the vinyards. Will definitely come back. Band was also great with music that the older generation likes !
The food is wonderful, and the service is great, and very friendly. Highly recommend this place, but on weekend you will need a reservation, enjoy!

Always look forward to visiting The Bistro at Childress Vineyards, the food is always great, and the service is always quick and excellent. Love the atmosphere and scenery, its so relaxing, the pavilion is beautiful, and makes a nice gathering spot to be outside, yet in the shade. You must go back often, as they add new items to the menu, which makes visiting even more enjoyable as you wonder what will be new! And of course the wine selection is top notch!

The total dinning experience! Been twice and everything was superb both times.
walk in the clouds
Love the vineyards. Enjoyable to just look over the landscape. Chicken salad delicious and fresh fruit; pineapple amazing. Try a wine slushy. Muscadine sweet wines are my choices. Grounds and building is nice.
Outstanding food and service! I always enjoy having lunch or dinner at the Bistro.
Review on the Food
We all loved this place. It is beautiful, not too far from home, and their prices are affordable. My daughter, who just graduated from the university (we were celebrating), was a little disappointed with her food. She and one of her friends ordered some type of thin pizza. The flavor was good but it was very small considering the price. They were still hungry so they had to order a side of french fries. The rest of the guests were satisfied with their food. And the service was very good.
Very Special Lady Friend
My lady friend had never been to the Bistro, & I wanted a different, romantic place , just for the two of us, a glass of wine, much conversation, holding hands in between & a delicious lunch. All this was accomplished plus a warm heart! Thank You.

In a word - outrageous. Food, ambiance, service, scenery, hospitality all excellent. Of course, the wine was superb, that's why we joined the Childress wine club and why we went to their Mother's Day buffet. To be honest, it was a bit pricey but when you consider all the positives, it was a value and well worth every dollar. I took my wife, two sons and their wives, and our two grandchildren - all raved and remarked how good it was all the way home. Hats off to Mr. Childress !
Great way to spend Mother's Day
Went on Mother's Day, the buffet was excellent, food selections were great and staff kept the serving area clean, and refilling the food items when they became low. Our server was always available for refreshing our drinks.

The buffet was amazing. The green beans tasted like my grandmother's!!!!!!
Always a delight!
We have been coming to the vineyard since it was only having sandwiches in a little space. The whole vineyard is so beautiful, it is one of our favorite day trips. We come from Lake Wylie, SC and have been recommending you to all our friends! Mother's day buffet is always outstanding! I can tell that we are not alone in loving your place - last year I called for reservations 2 weeks before Mother's day and you were already booked! I reserved a month in advance this time! Another wonderful day and awesome dining experience!
No place like Childress
I live in Greensboro but a trip to Childress is definitely worth the drive. I absolutely love to visit & always look forward to dining at the Bistro. It's one of my Favorite places to dine. I've been several times and never been a disappointment. Love it & highly recommend you give it a try!
WAS GOOD BUT NOT GOOD AS OTHER TIMES
Was disappointed we did not get our normal waitress ( Chasity) . The other waitress was ok . We did have to get someone else to get our dishes off table . kitchen was real slow this day and we had new people with us and wanted this to be a good time . Over all was good but not like the other times . Past times I would say were 9 out of 10 . ( I never give 10") This would be 7 out of 10 . But still better than most places . Not sure why management could not let us have our normal waitress when we set reservations 2 weeks in advance GOOD TIME AND WINE
Love this place!
We came to the Bistro last year for Administrative Professionals day---we had such a great time, all of us opted to return this year and make it an annual event . The food, the people and the grounds are outstanding. Very friendly environment with a marvelous view of the vineyard while eating a fantastic meal. I would recommend this place for ANY event! Hats off to Amy and her crew for handling this special event for us!
The Bistro at Childress Vineyards was simply amazing. It was the most awesome dinning experience that me and my girlfriend have experience. We really loved the atmosphere and the cozy dinning room experience, would definitely recommend it to any and everyone. Thanks for making our Sunday a very memorable experience. We will definitely be back.
