    Went for Robbie Burns night. Loved the menu (even though there was no haggis) and always love the ambience there. I am very familiar with Irish and Scottish music and wasn’t a huge fan of the duo playing but it was nice to have some Celtic music.

    An excellent spot for a great drink and live music! It's a smaller, more intimate venue with a great vibe. The folks who work there are super, really personable, attentive and make the experience great!

    full house at night with jazz band. If you are coming for the music, try to sit at the front because people were talking at the back. Small plates of food were inventive and delicious. If you are looking for meat and potatoes, don't go there. Very friendly , knowledgable and committed staff. Try a Scotch flight if you want to learn more about Scotch. Great atmosphere.

    Outstanding music. Outstanding Scotch selection. Food was good but $45 for the charcuterie board seemed expensive for not very much, especially as we'd ordered another just 3 days previously at another restaurant which was both less expensive and better. Menu is also very limited. Probably better to eat elsewhere before you go and stick to apps and drinks.

    They were really busy but still didn't get our bill, I had to go up to pay. Not a big deal. But more attention to the tables is recommended. The table where the musicians were sitting got a lot of attention.

    First time going to Montgomery for a Friday night out with friends. We were a group of 6 who have different ideas of drink and music preferences but after the night everyone had a great time. Upon arrival, we preferred sitting closer to the bar which is furthest from the stage because the live music was really loud. Manager and servers were friendly on point and very knowledgeable. Thanks for the great experience!

    The server took good care of us, e.g. got the music turned down so we could hear ourselves think. It was easy to book online and change the reservation to take advantage of happy hour. Nice intimate venue, really enjoyed Mike Allen and guitar buddy. Pleasant ambiance. The only thing I would like to see is more choice of food on the menu. Other than that, had a great time, thanks.

    Burger was good and there was a lot of options for whiskeys! Loved the cocktails! The only downside is that we paid for a Jazz show and we were ask to leave the table before the end of the show as our table was reserved for someone else (we stayed for 2h but still I would have liked to stay for the whole show)

    The venue is cozy. My reservation was attended to in every detail. The service and food were fabulous. It would have been a perfect place to listen to some excellent musicians, except for patrons sitting back at the bar who were overly loud, which was unfortunate.
