Winery Restaurant

Awarded one of Grand Junction’s “Best of the West,” The Winery Restaurant is a destination in and of itself—located downtown on historic Main Street, in the heart of Grand Junction’s cultural district.
The Winery Restaurant has been an icon among Western Slope restaurants for over thirty years. The restaurant makes its home in a 90 year old building that used to house a horse drawn carriage fire station. A gas lamp lit, vine canopied alley frames this romantic location perfectly. The beautifully remodeled building contains flowered stained glass windows, barn wood and bricks.
Steve Thoms acquired the restaurant in June of 2004 after taking a couple of years off from his previous restaurant. His mission at The Winery is simple: show the restaurant and its patrons the attention that they deserve. Use only top quality products and ingredients, and reestablish The Winery as the premiere restaurant in the Grand Junction area. The Winery provides a variety of steaks, chicken, pork and fresh seafood specials nightly in an atmosphere that cannot be rivaled anywhere.

From whitewater adventures to relaxing float trips, the Grand Junction area is a paradise for water lovers.
Maybe you've come to Grand Junction for a first-hand look at the Colorado's city's bounty of art galleries and distinctive boutiques, or perhaps you're here to sample a Riesling or Merlot from one of the region's esteemed wineries. There's plenty to see and do in this mountain-studded community on Colorado's Western Slope. But one of the most memorable ways to soak up the region's unparalleled beauty is by paddling through it. This is one of the West's premier whitewater rafting destinations and the roiling rapids of the Colorado River, as they course through Westwater Canyon into Utah, offer some of the area's most thrilling adventures.
