Cool place for drinks

I was here randomly. I decided to sit at the bar for a quick drink. Good selection of draft beer. Bartender was nice. I will come back the next time I am in town.

The food we had was excellent. Craft beer selection was superb, and on a Wednesday night a real bargain. I had the flatbread pizza which was very easy and much larger than I expected. My wife had a burger that she pronounced perfect. The prices were very reasonable. The interior was somewhat funky but interesting. I highly suggest that you... More

Met out of town friends at Ballantine's for drinks and dinner. Would love to have had one of the booths in the front where the windows are wide open, but seats were full. Drinks and food were excellent, had quite a variety of food at our table from wings, sushi, flat bread and entrees. Will definitely go back.

Bartender at Willoughby Brewing suggested we try dinner here and recommended the Sushi. We were so enticed by all of the menu choices that my husband and I both ordered steaks. Both were perfectly prepared and the sides were amazing. Craft beer choices were plentiful and did not disappoint. Would definitely return to try other items on the menu!

I had previously reviewed Ballantines and was disappointed. That was far from the case this time - I decided to go back and give it another try. The filet with demi glace was superb. The bacon wrapped scallops just melted in your mouth. They are still an Asian fusion restaurant but it is back to the great quality I remember.... More

Upon arriving for our valentines day dinner the hostess let us know that they had another reservation at 8:30 and we arrived at 7:00 so she... More

If I could give less than 1 star, I would. Ate there tonite, my husband ordered the filet which came out good. I order the Ballantine Steak....if you name it after your restaurant it should come out perfect. Asked for it to be barely pink. Cut it in half and blood ran all over the plate. Came out a second...
