Everything was absolutely fantastic! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The limited menu allows the standard to be set high and exceeded, everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly! If you’re keeping it quick, the charcuterie board is thoughtfully selected and pairs well with red or white wine. I don’t have enough good things to say - we can’t wait to return!

First visit to The Mary Celeste Whiskey /Wine Library. Enjoyed inside seating in a comfortable leather chair, staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Appreciated that Charles the bar tender provided insight to our whiskey choices, and charcuterie board. The owner Mike, came over and chatted with us about the opening of his new establishment. My husband and I enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back to The Mary Celeste Whiskey /Wine Library.

Great place to go and unwind and relax. The menu is small but it is worth it to try all of it! Been a few times now and the service is top notch and very welcoming and knowledgeable. The cheeseboards, scallops, and dessert were all delicious. I look forward to going back again...and enjoying the outdoor patio when the weather warms up!

The Mary Celeste is an experience, not just whiskey, wine, and charcuteire, although all of that was outstanding. It's very comfortable and asking lots of questuons to learn about whiskey and bourbon is encouraged. The team does a fantastic job matching your taste to the whiskey or burbon that will fit you. The charcuterie was distinctive and matched to your drinking choices. Mike and his team are creating a unique experience and we look forward to warmer weather when we can sit out on the patio and stay a little longer.

The Mary Celeste was very relaxing atmosphere, the gentleman that served us was very informative on both the Mary Celeste and the different whiskies. It was my birthday , my name is mary celeste and the Mary Celeste is a story I heard growing up in a fishing industry family, so when I saw this establishment opening I had to go.It was worth every moment and every penny. Its a somewhere to go to if you want a quiet evening or even a few friends to gather at.

A unique establishment with charm and pleasant environment for couples and gathering with friends. Nice and robust whisky and wine selection. Food menu is simple but appropriate for tastings and enhancement of the experience. Mike the owner was very friendly and willing to educate and share the menu and drink offerings. We enjoyed the time there and our server was great. Worth the visit and returning in the future! Being a new establishment we were impressed!

The wine flights were superb. We also had a couple of Scotch whisky samples that were very good. Host Mike is well versed in his whisky lore. Charcuterie board was well presented, could have been a bit more plentiful, but what was on it was delicious as was the banana dessert. Our server was just right, good timing and attentive but not intrusive. I definitely will return.

Stopped in after dinner to grab a drink and desert. Expected more of a crowd but the place was empty. Waiter/bartender was very nice. They could use more food options. There was only one desert, which wasn’t very good. Not sure anyone would go for dinner, there was only one entree available.
Not sure I would return.
