Setting: If some one comes to the distillery it is because of the location at the ocean. Spectacular views and nice setup on the deck. Nevertheless: needs some update as it looks at little worn down and from another decade. Food: I have been here three time - and the food is outstanding. Be it a Burger, the Casesar salad,... More

This was a magical place. We watched the sun set, wrapped in blankets, sitting by the fire. Hot chocolate and sea food sliders where amazing. The view was breathtaking. Well worth the ride from where ever you are!

After a couple of weeks of guests and cooking I really didn't want to spend Christmas making dinner so we booked MBD for 4 pm on Christmas Day. We got there about a half hour early, got drinks and sat outside by the fire pit enjoying the glorious ocean view. They have blankets in addition to the fires so we... More

This historical restaurant offers quiet dining or a comfortable place for a refreshing drink with an ocean view punctuated with sea birds galore! Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to take their drinks down to the lower level and outside to lounge by fire side and take in the ocean's splendor. Lunch was judged "adequate" and the rather pricey dinner was satisfying... More

Be sure and go downstairs where the rest rooms are located to view the old pictures and read about the history of this establishment. We stopped in to have a drink with some bar food and to enjoy the view and take in the atmsphere. The fried artichoke hearts were great.

This place was awful. We ordered our food from the counter down stairs and waited on the patio outside by the fire. After an hour of waiting we figured out they had lost out order. We went in and confirmed our order was lost. The server offered to get us our food fast but at this point we just wanted... More

It's a bit off the main road, that makes the place quiet and peaceful. The view is great and the beach very close. The menu offers a good choice, service is good, and the food is worth the trip.

I have been going to the Distillery since the early 60's when it was called the Galloway Bay Inn. I know live in San Diego, and don't go there as I did in the 60's and early 70's. I do miss the place. The Food has always been good and the Drinks great, and the Bar tenders are very friendly.... More
