REVIEWS OF Stone Cliff Winery IN Iowa


This winery was in a really neat building, cozy place. Service was okay. They prefer you sit at bar for tastings. Felt a bit rushed, they didnt have much to day about the wines. The wines are mostly sweet. Some had great flavor. If you are a semi dry to dry wine drinker this is not the place for you. Did not try any food.

Good selection of wines and beers

Carrie Donev

Amazing atmosphere. Friendly and knowledgable staff! Wine tasking is a great way to try many different wines and it's a great price! Totally would go again....

Kimberly Tietyen

Food was very good! The majority of the wines were a bit too sweet for my liking, however, the Cab was very good, and so was the Sangria.

Joe Vascik

Donna F Anderson

Fun and scenic spot

Shellie Kreps

Stopped in thinking it was more a brewery, and found a quaint bar tucked in the beer museum. Local wines, in the sweet side and one dry white and red. Also have beer on tap. Didn't eat here but menu looked upscale mid priced.

Visited this winery in a fascinating beer museum located on the port. Loved the layout and design of the tasting room. Large windows light the whole room up like you are sitting outside. Staff is very helpful and well versed in wine making process and history of the winemaker. Favorite part about this winery in the wine. Tasting includes generous pours and option to purchase glass for a very low price. I like sweet wines and was very impressed with their selection of them. All prices were very reasonable which encouraged me to by several. Loved the Jazz-berry Port and will defiantly be coming again.

Nicole Smith

Wonderful wine. Try the strawberry rhubarb. The staff was very friendly.


Great place to go to enjoy multiple varieties of wine to drink there, and then bottles to take home. Great prices, and a beautiful location right next to the Mississippi river and the riverwalk in downtown Dubuque. Great staff by the way!

My kind of wine

Delicious wine and great appetizers. The staff are all friendly and great at serving. Live music 4 nights a week too. We always enjoy our time there especially when it's nice outside and you can sit at either of the patios.

Jerry Heiselman

Sabrina Spikes

Mark music Ames

Great place, party atmosphere, very good wine.

Janelle Bailey

We had a group of 20+ people go for a wine tasting for a bachelorette. The staff was incredibly accommodating with speedy service, and the wine and appetizers were delicious. I would highly recommend this place and will be going again.

Tim Weinberg

Great place down on the river walk, a nice destination place. Good drinks and musicians are sometimes playing

Maciej Ciupa

The wine is fantastic, the views are fabulous. Go check it out.

Jamie Murphy

Fun spot! They were hopping busy but handled it like pros. Super friendly staff, had a Tuscan pizza that was yummy and I’m not a fan of sweet wines so just got their cab - it was so good! So happy we found this gem!

Megan Bouska

Liked the environment, but did not like the wine. A bit sweet for our liking.

Dan Seger

Nice place

Sherri Stoffel

Fun place to go.

Jeff Rouse

Great location! If the weather is nice, they have a nice open air seating, and live music!

Esther Mendelson

It was wonderfully delicious

Curtis Goodell

Wine sucks but nice place and good views.


Took over an hour and two different tables to complete the wine tasting. The tables were half full at best but no server would bother stopping by to refill our glasses. We finally moved to the bar with hopes of gaining someone’s attention but again had very little luck. Will not be returning.

Becky Lanenga

Great if you like sweets!

Cliff Haynes

Very nice. Good wines. Nice pours on the wine tasting. Actually got 6 for $5. Friendly staff. Good location. Would be real nice on a summer evening sitting on the patio.

Jennifer Millsap

Very disappointed that they closed early. The website said 10 pm and when we got there the door said 8 pm. A gentlemen outside told us that this happens all the time. Please update your website.

Suzanne Parks

my daughter loves the Chardonnay I have the strawberry rhubarb and the cranberry apple both very good it's a very nice place to visit

Sarah Maynard

Go to it! Staff was really nice they took us on a tour it was interesting. Bartender gave great service. They have reasonable prices with cheap daily deals. There is like a mini museum with information about the place it was pretty cool we got to walk around with our wine and check it out. Try the Cabernet best I ever tasted!

Jake Townsend

Great place to relax

Valerie Hayes

Marci Omann

Ashley W

Went here for a rehearsal dinner. Not only was the waitstaff amazing, the entertainment was superb. Love the wine and atmosphere!

Gina Richman-Cesaretti

Great service, warm/cozy atmosphere. The pick too lunch option - house salad and turkey, bacon, cranberry panini was tasty and prepared well. Topped it off with hot spiced cranberry apple wine! Yummy and relaxing

Jordan Clapper

friendly service in the tasting room. my wife really liked the purple cow. good deals.

jason preston

Don't waste your time. We went in and sat, it had a clique feel. No one even bothered to try to serve us. We sat for 20 min out of morbid curiosity to see if we could get served. Cliff and 3 others at the bar got served but no one even acknowledged we were there. Wow!

Al Remetch

The paninis were great, the service was friendly, atmosphere and background music perfect. The coleslaw not so hot. The bar staff not entirely professional. But I wouldn’t let that stop you from getting a bite to eat here.

Jeff coughlin

Teri Mac Kenzie

Great service although they were swamped!!! Affordable and the warm wine was delicious!

Cassandra l

Great wine, great atmosphere!

shawn C

Great winery, very sweet wines, and friendly staff

Jeff Scarpelli

If you are like me and enjoy sweet wine, this place is for you. The seasonal pineapple wine was fantastic, I proceeded to stock up and purchase 6 bottles of it since I will not be back in Dubuque for a very long time.

Liz Trebes

Great place and wonderful sale staff. Made us feel very welcome.

Matthew Sinacore

Great bartenders. They know their stuff!

Slick Rick

My girlfriend and I did the wine tasting that cost just $5, not a bad price. It's just that the staff had such a lack of personality that we didn't even feel bad enough to buy a bottle of wine out of pity. My girlfriend was asking about the history of the place and the girl working there said, "What would you like to know?" THE FREAKIN HISTORY! It wasn't a trick question. I just really felt weird in there. We took our complimentary wine glasses and left, without purchasing anything else. I feel like we were treated like annoying customers who were only there for the $5 wine glasses. We would have bought something if we would have been treated a little better.

Danelle Hungerford

Love this place, especially the location and outdoor seating. Such a cool place to hang out and drink some good wine. A lot of the wine is fruity and sweet but so so good. Strawberry Rhubarb has been a favorite of ours for years. I recommend this place to everyone.

Chad Orr

Andrea Reis

Kaye Federspiel


Excellent, locally made wine and delicious flat bread pizza make this the perfect place to stop with a loved one and relax.

Kelly Coyle

What a great place. Jenna is an excellent server/bartender!

Dave Michalski

This is an awesome winery! The view over the river is spectacular, the service is incredible, the historic building is a treat, and the wine is some of the best we have tasted. The $5 wine sampling is a steal, and the wine of the month was added to the sampling for free. We bought a decent selection of wines for us as well as some for holiday gifts. We will definitely be back

James Fattic

Nice place for a break from the riverwalk with a very nice selection of wine. The food offerings are limited to flatbread pizza and such.

Ed Mosser

My wife and I found it by accident and had a great meal (Tuscan Pizza). They do not have a "meal menu" but serve appetizers. The pizza was outstanding, the service prompt and attentive, the music was very good and just the right volume. We did not have wine, so we have no comment on the product, just the meal and service. We will return.

Kathy Anderson

Great atmosphere and beautiful location! The wines were great, strawberry rhubarb was the best I've had in a long time. Wish I took more than 2 bottles home with me! Pizza was awesome!

Matt Zagar

My girlfriend and I came up to Dubuque for a January wknd to enjoy wine and relax in the bluffs. The Stone Cliff Winery is a perfect destination for an intimate happy hour with friends or a elegant evening with your favorite person. Great wine, perfect atmosphere. I wish central Iowa had a spot like this!!

Jered Noonan

As a co-owner of Absolute Music, I am happy to give a 5 star review to the Stone Cliff Winery. They do a fantastic job. We love DJing events here! Oh, and the wine is delicious.

Rene Radil

The food was very good but the service wasn't great. Had to get the wait staffs attention.

Rachel Roemer

I can not say enough wonderful things about Stone Cliff Winery and their staff. I recently had my rehearsal dinner and wedding at Stone Cliff and, as cliche as it may sound, had the wedding of my dreams. Jodi and the rest of the staff were so friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. Jodi, the coordinator, always communicated with me and responded in a timely manner to any questions/ideas/comments/concerns and provided me with great insight. Shortly after booking, Jodi provided us with vendor information (which was very helpful since we were an out-of-town couple) as well as communicated directly with our caterer and other vendors. The venue itself is unique and gorgeous, both on the inside and out. We had our ceremony outside on the amphitheater - with the bridge and flowering trees in the background, and the Mississippi River just over the hill (all of which made for amazing pictures). The reception was held inside and accommodated our ~160 people comfortably and is beautifully decorated with lights, wine barrels, artwork, and exposed bricks. How can such a gorgeous venue ALSO be affordable?? I would recommend Stone Cliff to any couple looking for their perfect wedding venue!

Laurence Zelhart

Great wine and good service only complaint is we came at lunchtime and at first we were told that they were to busy for a tasting but a few minutes later they were able to accommodate us and we ordered lunch which took over a hour to get but they were apologetic about it

Lee Johnson

Very nice place for the family. River walk is close by. Beautiful scenery. Also the place where sly stalon shot the movie fist in the late 70's.

Dawn Hakala

Beautiful area and so nice and relaxing inside :) Nice wine choices and knowledgeable staff

Carlene Winkler

Mike Pendleton

Love this place. Indoor and outdoor seating, great food and of course the wine is spectacular!

Michael Kies

Stone Cliff is a great place with great outdoor seating, easy access to the riverwalk, and live music. Wines are very good, but tend to be on the sweeter side, as most area wines do. My wife and I love coming here when coming back home to visit family.

Jerry Smith

Awesome place to relax and enjoy some wine or beer. The beer museum has equipment on display as you walk into the wine room. Put this on your bucket list if you visit Dubuque.

Allen Hines

Awesome atmosphere. Very pleasant employees. Great wine prices. Always a must stop when in Dubuque.

Andrew Jones

Tom Goodman

Great fun at the Murder Mystery.

Robin Olson

Nice atmosphere. Good wines fair pricing

Tim Stinson


Great wines. Fun atmosphere.

Steve Nienhaus

Very nice venue

Elizabeth Luiken

Honestly, the wine isn't very good. It tastes like a homemade wine. We had a Groupon to here so I am happy we didn't pay full price for the bottles we took home. The atmosphere of the actual store is great. Our service was only ok- we did a tasting of several wines but weren't given any background or information about what we were tasting. In terms of local wineries in the area, I wouldn't recommend here.

Diana Duangnet

They do a wonderful $5 wine tasting and you can select up five from a tasting menu. Their wines are on the sweeter side. Wine by the glass is around $5 a glass. Great and reasonable prices. They have a nice outside patio area where dogs are allowed.

Woody Steinhoff

What a wonderful place this is. Great pours on the wine tasting! The beer is very good. Atmosphere is turn of the century saloon, very inviting. Our server, Jenna was very pleasent and knowledgable about the history and wine.

Ted Wittman

I can't say I'm very fond of the wine but I think it's wonderful what they have done with this location. I've attend a handful of parties here and it's fun moving in and out and around the wine making operation.

Holly Chong

Great atmosphere. Excellent wine. Superb service. This is my new fav!

John Johnson

Friendly staff,good wine

Alexis Hill

Love the place, great staff and atmosphere. Not to mention great wine! They also had an amazing apple beer that tasted like nothing else! Can't wait to get back down here!

Wendy Carolan

Enjoyed the wine tasting, but the tour Nan gave us was very neat!

Eric Hinz

Very charming place, nice atmosphere and selection of wines.

Ashley Buckholtz

Was here in April, great wine tasting - large pours. Make sure to order a flatbread! Delicious!
