We came in for a tasting and wound up staying for hours! The hard ciders here are amazing, and their speciality drinks are great. The bartenders were very helpful and funny, they kept us entertained the entire time!

Love the cinnamon girl cider! We came this time for tasting and had appetizer cheese/fruit/cracker plates and this was very good.

Variety has decreased but still good. We like the addtion of the cocktails. Just wish they still had more wines to choose from like in the past. Love the Cidermosa and Cin-gria drinks, what a great mix idea. The Cinnamon Girl is always a pleasant drink. Live music on Fridays is a bonus

When we first arrived we were not sure where to go, there were only two servers working a full bar on a Saturday and looked very stressed. I was ready to leave after we did not get greeted as we came up to the bar and had to flag someone down for help. However, they had another server come in... More

When we visit the TC area, we stop at Left Foot Charley for their Dry Reisling. However, the last two times they have been out of the Dry Reisling. We need to find another dry Reisling from another winery.

Thank you so much for coming to visit and for your review. Believe us, we are disappointed we are out of the Dry Riesling as well! The last two vintages were exceptionally difficult for us as growers and winemakers. The combination of the Polar Vortex in 2014 and terrible hail incident in 2015 severely limited our crop. We are a... More

I live in TC and have been to LFC many times and have always enjoyed the ambience, drink offerings and small appetizers. I therefore brought my out of town cousins here, expecting the same, and was sorely disappointed and embarrassed at the unfriendly server and the poor quality of the food we were served. We sat outside which, as always,... More

My fiancé, cousin, and I were doing a day full of wine and beer tasting and decided to check this place out. I have family on the peninsula and have been to so many wineries in the area before, I don't know how I never knew this place existed. We had an older employee serving us our samples and she...

My wife and i really enjoyed our tasting here. They had several good wines and cidars. Service was good but odd. We had several different servers pouring our tastings and they kept asking which one we were on. But it was a good time and we cant wait to go back

Nice location, lots of different wines and hard ciders for tasting along with snacks. Nice spot to stop and try the wine. Have both indoor and outside seating.
