The MacMillan Whisky Room
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!
