“A great new local place”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

The hidden Still is a great addition to a long list of great local restaurants. A tiny place, that yes can sometimes be crowded, yet has a great moonshine list to attract all sorts of people. The food is a little better than average pub food.

“Good but not great”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Some creative sounding items on the menu, especially the apps, but both the fritters and pulled pork pockets were cold when they arrived. Waitress literally threw our bottle of wine on the table without a taste or first glass pour. Although it's a bar, when one orders a bottle for $30+, there should be more attention to detail. Scallop special was good and dinner salad what one woudl expect. I think the Still has potential, but the kitchen and servers were busy (6:30 on a Friday) and they couldn't pull it off. It needs time to mature.

“Great bar scene with good creative pub food”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The bar area is packed mainly by the younger crowd here for moonshine based creative cocktails. However there is also a quiter dining area where you can get very good inexpensive pub food as well. For Small bites be sure to share the Grilled Mac and Cheese and/or Chicken and Waffles, For Large Bites the pulled pork sandwich or Philly Steak Flatbread. Hamburgers are rather ordinary and you pick the toppings. For specialties try the smoked meatloaf or Steak Three Ways (Salmon as well available).
