Good menu, reasonable prices , friendly but overworked waitress! Loved the fried pickles recommended by the waitress, however, lobster roll was pre made so I could not get it “naked”. Crab cake was good, though!

The Distillery is craft. Cocktails made with specially curated ingredients and a new-American kitchen turning out elevated favorites. We source the finest whiskeys, gins, and vodkas to bring you fresh, innovative options with a nod to the past. Classic skirt steak, but finished with an espresso rub. A chocolate brownie just like mom used to make, but with a bit of bacon and splash of whiskey in the batter. In our kitchen, you’ll find old favorites made new with creative twists and fresh additions. Join us for dinner and see for yourself. The Distillery is a true cocktail bar. Whiskeys with a velvet finish and gins with a nose of floral juniper. Sip our thoughtfully curated collection of liquors or try a handcrafted cocktail made with fresh ingredients and built with love by one of our knowledgeable bartenders. Chase it with a selection from our craft beer list, featuring small breweries from all over the country.
