“A restaurant with a Spanish influence offering tapas and wine pairings. A little on the pricey side, but definitely a unique menu with ambience galore. This restaurant is on 3rd Street. Families are welcome, but a children's menu is not available.”

“From the website: "Our craft beers are brewed on site, and we serve up a tasty menu in our renovated old timber barn in the heart of McMinnville’s Historic Granary District. Join us for lunch and dinner seven days a week in our family friendly atmosphere. We also feature local wines and a full bar." A local favorite. Great brews and great fries! And live music!”

“Great tap beers and ciders just blocks from Villa Vino. Take the growler from the dining room built in and bring your favorite beer or cider back to the villa to enjoy on the deck. Located at the corner of 11th st and Baker.”

“A very fun wine tasting room. Wines are good and generally more affordable than many Oregon produced wines. This excerpt from their website sort of says it all: (And their grapes are naked - the sommeliers wear clothes...) "Hi there! We are Naked Wines, LLC but all our friends call us Naked Winery. We like to have our friends over pretty much every day. So come and visit us in any one of our four Oregon tasting rooms, we have wine! We started this thing back in 1999 before most of America was even online. We've never really been about the awards or the accolades that surround wine. Our own Naked Winemakers make wines for you, and it's been that way since day one."”
