Great lunch and dinner spot. Brunch on Sunday is amazing too!

10 minute drive
Clyde’s has a great bar, excellent food and a fun upbeat atmosphere. They’ll have sports on the TV and craft cocktails galore. I highly recommend starting here for lunch and a good “base” meal prior to going on a winery tour!

Winery with the best view and open until 9pm!

5 minute drive
We LOVE the view from The Cottage and the owner's, Jim and Sandra, are the sweetest. It is open significantly later than most wineries and right around the corner! Our absolute favorite spot and the reason we migrated to Cleveland in the first place. They have a food truck from time to time but don't mind if you pack a picnic or your own cheese and crackers and just park outside with a bottle of their wine. They have cornhole too!

Beautiful winery with fire pits and farm animals!

10 minute drive
We LOVE this winery- the owner is so sweet and always has plenty of blankets and room around the fire pits to cozy up with a glass of wine. It is also kid friendly with a playground and farm animals to feed. It was recently renovated and has a large covered porch and a lot of times live music!

Winery with beautiful photos ops of the vines!

5 minute drive
We love Kaya but be warned, they close at 5:30, so we always start there and head elsewhere. Also, forewarning, their gift shop has the cutest home goods and gifts but a little pricey! After a few glasses of vino, you tend to overlook the price tags. Really great atmosphere for a tasting or sit outside with a bottle and listen to live music. Highly recommend and right around the corner!

Happening "kid friendly" brewery near Helen.

We love Tantrum! Lots of different types of beer on tap and typically have food trucks on the weekends. The kids have games they can play and run around freely on the grass. We love this place and highly recommend stopping by if you're not in the mood for wine.

"Bar food" with open area and live music in Helen!

We love this spot in Helen- in the summer months, you watch the tubers go down the river, but it's also a fun place to gather and watch football. Extensive drink and shot menu and fun place for the kids to hang out and grab a hot dog. Great people watching and live music most of the time!
