Phenomenal selection of whisky, with interesting cocktail menu and southern-style appetizers. Great place for after-work drinks. GooglePlace - October 2017

Tremendous whiskey selection. I recommend giving their rye flight a go. Just prepare yourself by eating before hand. GooglePlace - September 2017

I'm rating 2 as a general experience, and NOT for bar quality. For whisky lovers is a paradise. I would have rated 4 stars, BUT, -1 because prices of basic food too high, and -1 because I asked for a drink, and it came about 85% of ice (see pic). Are those silly things that for, being too cheap and try to get more revenue out of a single glass, you loose customers. Could have helped also a little of background music, the ambient sound was mainly people's voices. GooglePlace - September 2017

If you are a bourbon fan, look no further than this place. This is bourbon Mecca. Absolutely INCREDIBLE selection of "store picks" and rare and allocated bottles. Definitely a "must" if you are within 200 miles of San Francisco and you consider yourself a bourbon fan. GooglePlace - August 2017

The cocktails are solid, and their whiskey list is quite large, with premium pricing on the pours. Food menu is small but also quite good, and the chicken pairs well. Service is consistently very slow here, and I've found my table waiting 20 or 30 minutes after our drinks are empty before we can get waitstaff's attention. On my last visit the restaurant was perhaps half full but our server was nowhere to be found. I was fortunate enough to have the right cash on me to cover the tab and walk out after a half hour.
