Since 1977 the Mariscotti family has owned and operated The Vineyard Restaurant. Modeled after a winery, the large wooden barrels, high ceilings and friendly wait staff create a relaxed atmosphere. The Vineyard serves American food influenced by our Italian heritage and the bountiful foods of Central California. We feature menu items such as Lamb Shank braised in red wine, locally grown Mary's Chicken fried Italian style and our popular Filet Mignon with zinfandel butter and portabella mushroom. The restaurant has a full bar featuring the wines of Madera County. Located in the center of California at the junction of Highway 99 and Highway 145, The Vineyard is a natural meeting place for business and family events. The restaurant has been featured as one of the top restaurants in Central California by publications such as; The Wine Spectator, The American Automobile Association's Via Magazine, Fresno Magazine and The Northern California Golf Magazine.
