“Winton Road location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

We had our son's graduation party here in May. Food was very good. Waitress was good. I understand they had some manager issues @ the time (reservations were lost), but our experience was good!

“Winton Rd. Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

the Distillery started out great here, they ran Appleby's out of business
now -- the food has really gone down hill since they have quite a good crowd
it's like Mac Gregors ... good for a while, then the local chain gets to big for the management skills

“Slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The food was good and cooked the way we requested but for the price the service was slow and the waitress didn't come around too often to see if we needed anything.
