“Sunday Funday Football with Courtney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

My friends and I enjoy our Sunday afternoons during football season at The Distillery. The staff is very warm and pleasant, especially our server, Courtney. She is very attentive and accommodating. Thanks Courtney!

“Great lunch experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I brought the nephews here for lunch today, and everything about our time there was excellent. From service, to food, to atmosphere, we had a fantastic time. Any time you can get teenagers to rave about the food, you know that something is right. We started with the Wing Dip appetizer, which the nephews said was the best thing they've ever had. They split a pizza, which they devoured. My cajun chicken sandwich was great, with homemade potato chips. Just wish we had saved room for a desert.

“Great location with an amazing staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

My wife and I went here the first night just for a beer. We checked out the menu and decided to go back the next night with our family. The menu is extensive and very well priced. They have a great selection of beer on draft. Many TV's for all the sports that are on. Staff was helpful and had some great suggestions.

“Like football?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Like football? You won't miss a single play wherever you sit in this place. A zillion flat screens. Noisy, but you'd expect that. Good margarita. 2-for-1 wing specials. Friendly service. Free WiFi, which is just ducky because I can play on my iPad while he screams at the stupid guys in the helmets. Broad menu. Reasonable prices.

“Beyond Bar Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We frequent The Distillery at least once a month. Their chicken wings and other bar fare can't be beat, but they offer far, far more -- including hummus dip, skewered shrimp, baked salmon, fish tacos, and a vast array of sandwiches! My fave? The Greek Turkey Burger on whole wheat flatbread with a side of delicious onion rings! And for dessert, try the hot fudge brownie or Jack Daniels pecan pie! Yum!
