The MacMillan Whisky Room
Beware: they only serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday’s and unfortunately they have a very limited brunch menu.
A destination location for whisk(e)y lovers - bourbon and scotch. Quite a selection of both, as well as others - e.g., rum, cognac, etc. Not a terribly good selection of beer, but that is not why I'd go there to begin with.
The MacMillan Whisky Room is a very fine establishment with an amazing experience. Note you will have many many (hundreds?) of options of Scotch, Whisky, Bourbon and other cocktails. The menu can appears overwhelming but it’s very nice how the drinks are broken down by region and gives the profile of each selection. Also note they are typically in alphabetical order. We will certainly return.
This is a great place to hangout or meet for a food and drinks. The people are awesome, one of the best places to go to.
Had a delicious brunch. Loved the skillet and bloody mary. Everything was great.
This place was so good! The food was delicious (everything tasted good). They have sooo many types of whiskey, bourbon, scotch etc to choose from. I got the international flight and my date got the whiskey 101. We both really enjoyed it and would definitely come back.
I choose this place because had a good reviews about people who work here , giving good service and knowledge about whiskey.
We had a great time regardless but my friend order $300 whiskey for 1oz and server show him the bottle and disappeared. We were waiting at least 20min and wondering why it takes so long when the place is not busy . Our server was having fun and literally kissing and hugging with bartender. We had to ask her why it takes so long ans then they brought glass of $300 whiskey like its nothing . No explanation no excitement, nothing! This totally ruined our experience here
The bartender was also our waitress as it was early in the day. She was wonderful, and made excellent drinks and was attentive to our needs. We also met the chef on the way in and even though we ordered lots of different items from the happy hour menu, everything came out excellent and tasted great.
Great whiskey list and impressive wall of bottles. Outdoor seating was ideal for the size of the group. Had multiple drams and drinks; one drink (old fashioned) must have been a mix up but the others were tasty. Ordered a few menu items all of which were good (tater tots, sliders, salads, Guinness pie, bread pudding dessert, cheese plate); steak had to be returned since it was well done vs med rare. Service was great and will return
Celebrating my birthday. Excellent service. Fantastic ambiance. Great music a bit loud but then I’m getting old. Only had appetizers but very nice. Go have a good night there.
We had a great night! The server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The drinks tasted amazing, fast service despite that it was full. And , oh boy, the food...so delicious. Definitely coming back!
Great service no issues
Excellent food and service
As a Scotsman in VA, this place is heaven.
Food and drinks were both great! Will definitely go back.
Awesome selection of drinks. But the service is a bit screwy. We ordered cocktails, some appetizers, and entrees (their boneless ribeyes). We were expecting to get the drinks and food in that order. Instead, we got the steaks first! We asked about the other stuff — and then got our appetizers. After a bit more, then we finally got our cocktails. Food was ok. Cocktails were good. But the service and the order that our stuff came out was kind of messed up.
Service was FANTASTIC! Atmosphere was a little loud but fine. Cocktails were delicious. The ONLY thing is that we weren’t fans of the fish in the fish & chips. We had multiple items from the menu and everything else was great.
Love this place
Great place to go for date, by yourself or with a very small group. The place is small but I heard is planning to move to a much needed bigger area. Come for their great liquor selection but stay for food. The place has a great kitchen. Make reservations! Generally you can’t get a table after 6 pm on the weekend.
Celebrated my hubby’s birthday but we can’t wait to go back! It’s excellent! Check it out!
Service a little slow - not enough wait staff. Otherwise, very nice time.
It was our first time at this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint! The collection of Scotch, Whiskey, Bourbons and other spirits was awesome. The display of all these different liquors and the general ambience was excellent.
The owner and the staff were very attentive and their knowledge of the liquors was inspiring.
We look forward to our next visit!
Great place to try almost any whiskey or spirit you can think of. Bourbon, Scotch, Japanese Whiskey, Irish Whiskey, Gin, Tequila, Mezcal, Wine, Beer... everything. They were out of Hibiki Harmony (big sad) and missing a few bottles on my list of what I wanted to try, but I'm a snob and the bottles were from smaller distilleries, so they can't be blamed too much lol. Overall the selection is still exceptional.
Food is really great; their Macmillan Burger S L A P S, and the fries are thick and primo. Fish and chips were also pretty dang good.
It's a surprisingly small place; there are only 8-10 tables inside. Lighting is dim and moody, but each table has their own lamp. They only played jazz music which was a fun quirk, but it was a bit loud and raised voices were necessary to talk across the table. Staff is fairly knowledgeable, but if they didn't know something they'd quickly get an answer.
They use iPads for their extensive drinks menu which is fun, but the search function on it is a little jank/doesn't show their accurate inventory and the batteries died halfway through the meal.
Can’t wait to go back. Smoked Gouda sliders are amazing
The only thing going for this place is it’s decor. We ordered Penicillin drink- was too sour, French fries were not fried through, cauliflower wasn’t cooked. Service was non existent, servers were running around but we couldn’t get utensils or water for half an hour. Very disappointing
Loved the look of the bar and the ladder sliding across the tall shelves. Food was good and liked the drinks, Only complaint was high noise level.
First time visit, a couple flights of whiskey and some tots. Tots were very good. My friends merlot was not good, tasted like grape juice. I’ll be back!
very good dining experience. great whiskey and food.
Food and drink was plentiful and quality. Definitely enjoyed ourselves and will look forward to returning.
Service was really bad at my second time there. Reservations during corona virus which is fine but they had open tables and the server couldn’t accommodate. Went online and saw they had open reservations in 10 minutes. The time for our reservation came and the server sat other people before us even though there were still empty tables. She had a bad attitude bad we kept on waiting till 10-15 minutes past our reservation while others got seated. We finally got seated and ordered drinks. People who got seated after us got their drinks before us. Owner was definitely in on this and was condoning the behavior of this waitress. Disappointed in the places because it does have a nice atmosphere and beautifully decorated, but there are better whiskey bars in the area that actually care and treat customers right.
Great drinks and great service. Definitely recommend!
Love everything about this place. Food was great and great recommendations on whiskey. Claire was the best
Great place for a date with your sweetie or friends! The cocktails and food are delicious. If you like beer, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
Of course, the whiskeys, spirits and cocktails are the stars. Love trying a different cocktail each time I go. Well made, seldom disappointing. Glad to see they expanded the initially very limited food/snack menu. The last time I visited I had the burrata salad, nice and seasonal and good quality burrata. The salmon was perfectly cooked - a golden, crisp saute on the outside but moist and delicate inside. Exciting that they've been able to add several tables outside so customers can enjoy the ambiance of the Mosaic neighborhood in summer. Well done!
Loved being here! Great ambiance and service. Food was excellent as well!
My only concern was our server took her mask off (pulled down under chin) when she ran my credit card at the table. It was my first time out in 3-4 months so it made me feel uncomfortable.
The service was great and I really enjoyed the jazz music! The food was very good.
This is the best Whisky Bar in the the DC, Maryland, Virginia area. Superior selection of Scotch, wine, and cocktails, food is surprisingly good, service is great, and there is live music at least a couple times a month if you're looking for something a little more lively. The only drawback is the MacMillan is fairly small and seating is limited so make reservations I garauntee you'll become a regular customer like me. 10/10
If you like dark wood, scotch / whiskey than there no better place. Food menu is limited but good. Very good cocktails too.
Great reopening experience!
