Allow us to explain. We have had a huge response from those wishing to book events or weddings here, which is great. However, we quickly realized the difficulty of servicing event guests at the same time as dining guests all in the same location. Therefore, we decided to return to the owner's original vision of an event center combined with a vineyard-style estate rather than a full restaurant. So now, you can enjoy a winery atmosphere in our cozy bar or take a bottle of wine and a charcuterie tray or other specials out to the patio and enjoy the beautiful river view, even if there is an event taking place in the ballroom. Event guests can choose from the ballroom with attached wine bar and side patio or the not-yet constructed tent for up to 300 guests, which will sit just east of the main building. Both event guests or visitors will enjoy the ideally located 9 room hotel to the west, which will be finished this summer. Whether you are looking for a lovely location to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends or you are looking for an elegant location for a wedding, we hope you think of Elijah McLean's and visit us soon.
Sharing tasty bites accompanied by wine while laughing and conversing with friends is a great way to spend a few hours or an entire afternoon at Elijah McLean's in Washington, Missouri.
Our charcutterie boards are designed as small portions of artisinal cheeses, local and imported meats, preserves, olives, crackers, breads and more.
In addition, we will be offering limited quantities of entrees on select weekends. As time permits our chef will be preparing limited dinner options, which may include a delicious steak or fried lobster tails. These are posted to our Facebook account when available. Share your feedback on these limited quantity dinners and we will add more at our customer's request.
Artisan bartenders hand-make our craft cocktails with only the finest mixes.
A wine steward is available to help you find your favorite style of wine or discover a new one from our cellar selection.

Vineyard- Planting will begin in late Spring 2019 on the north hill.
