The interior is BEAUTIFUL! We loved the decor and vibe of this place. Bar stools were actually comfortable. Happy Hour is Tuesday - Friday 3PM - 7:30PM. We had plans for dinner elsewhere but food looked amazing.

They reserved us a great table and the waitress remembered us from another time coming. She was very attentive. I ordered the steak and Guinness pie. It was very good. Not a traditional way, but very good. I definitely will go back.

We all ordered the french onion soup. It actually looks better than it tastes. There was not much broth at all in mine and the croutons used as the bread along with the fried onions seemed to soak up whatever brother there was. As for...the main course, I was happy with my salmon and because they were out of mashed potatoes, I got tater tots. I think I preferred the tater tots with it anyway. The Brussel sprouts were good as was the salmon. The others ordered the chicken pot pie. They liked it. As for the drinks. I stuck with the blood and sand drink. It was tasty.More

MacMilan is exactly what I hoped for: not a craft beer bar, not a wine bar, but a bar specializing in high quality whisky. It has the goods, with shelves to the ceiling with whiskies and a menu featuring both cocktails and different tasting flights....It has the vibe, too, with the aforementioned wall of spirits and ambience that feels both upscale and casual at the same time. I don’t know what the food is like, but I don’t know why you would come for the food.More

Great place for drinks and socializing. They also have food so it is worth stopping by. The inside is very good and unique in style. Service was on point and cocktails are very well Crafted. Plenty of outdoor seating. They also have brunch.

Great libations and excellent service by Ruth who was working the outside patio. Nice place to enjoy a cocktail and people watch.

MacMillan is pretty smart. They know everyone will just drink whiskey so they also offer wines and other drinks. We came in and just wanted some prosecco and we got that and some small plates and they were prepared very well. The waitress was attentive...and checked on us several times to ensure all was well, and I have the say the service was really very good.More

stopped in for father’s day. online described a brunch along with a vast selection with good pricing and pappy van winkle. when we got there no brunch no pappy and drink prices were higher than posted. for father’s day they did a jack n come...special. seriously for father’s day in a whiskey bar. food was average. afterwards they revamped the web took off pappy and drink prices. i think till they figure out what they are doing it’s only good for a drink. eat elsewhere in the mosaic.More

We were looking for something after a movie and came here. We ordered bruschetta while looking at the drink menu. It came as 4 tiny cold slices of bread with diced tomatoes that looked and tasted as if it came out of a can. A...disappointing start. We ordered a mint julip and a tasting flight of whiskey. The mint julip was 90% ice and came with a paper straw that immediately disintegrated. When I asked for another straw, I was given a coffee stirrer that no liquid could get through. The whiskey flight was $18 and if you looked too quickly you might the liquid in the glass because there was so little. For dinner we ordered the fish and chips. The dishes came swimming in grease with limp fries. After a $72 bill we stopped on the way home for dessert because we were hungry.More
