Four of us recently had dinner and drinks at the South side location. All in all we had a pretty good experience and enjoyed some nice wines and good food. The Tapas which should be for sharing in our view had portions that seemed to be quite small and relatively expensive. We were served by a very pleasant server who... More

The food is good. The wines and scotch are very nice. But the prices are higher than we expected. A small glass of wine is $12 (minimum) and a small plate of cheese is $19. The atmosphere is fine (strip mall) and the service is good. We will probably find a similar place with lower prices. Look for an online... More

This was my first trip to The Bothy, and it didn't disappoint. The food was amazing! We had the Bothy Club sandwich and the Tomato Bacon Soup. The Alaskan Crab dip as a starter was also outstanding. The wine selection was great albeit a tad bit pricy, but I liked that they made custom 2 oz wine flights for you... More

If you like scotch, and don't mind paying a premium for tasty, but servings that are a touch on the small side, this place could be worth tracking down. But for a casual night out, it's not what I'd choose.

The atmosphere is pleasant enough, the service is fine, the whiskey and wine selection is enormous and the food is fine. However there is nothing about The Bothy, from its strip mall location, to its furnishings and decor, to the quality and/or quantity of its food options, that justifies the prices being charged. Fourteen dollars for a sandwich at lunch?... More

We both ordered the special which was a sea bass. It melted in our mouths...totally delicious. Also had appetizers and dessert which were ok but the fish was really outstanding. A bit pricey but if you want good food, this was very good food. Very nice presentation.

We went with high expectations. I suppose in my head I imagined a cosy little place that you could find a corner in and sample a few drams on a cold night. Maybe a fire, some high backed chairs. You get the idea. While the selection of whiskies is pretty decent, the atmosphere of the place is lacking. The decor... More

I was quite excited when a friend suggested we meet at the Bothy for lunch. However, it was not quite what I expected. I found the menu to be both price-y and limited. $17 for a sandwich? $18 for a small meat pie or mac and cheese? I ordered the chicken pie with soup. The soup was purportedly vegetable but... More

This place was a bit more classy than I was expecting. I think of the English or Scottish pubs as bigger venues with lower end scale food, but this was a nice surprise. Yes it was a small, intimate setting with a bar to sit at as well. Good ambiance for small or large groups. The wine selections are quite... More
