Only gripe is I wish you could specify reserving an outdoor table vs indoor. Otherwise, fantastic place, fantastic drinks.

We LOVE MRD!!! We don’t normally get any food while we are there, but we love just being able to sit, relax, play cards, and enjoy time with friends. The drinks are ALWAYS on point!!!

Always enjoy having a cocktail on the patio. I appreciate the measures the company has put in place during pandemic times, I felt safe and comfortable and got a great view of the river as a bonus.

We sat outside and really enjoyed seeing the river with an occasional train passing by. They had umbrellas and overhead awnings to help with the sun. Their servers wore masks and menus were paper.

The drinks were great! They have two pages of drinks to choose from and a tasting menu.

Everyone enjoyed the drinks. We didn’t have any food as we were eating elsewhere.

Try to visit when we come in town from Arizona as it’s a cute place with a river view.

When I called to let them know we were running late, I was told that they moved our table from outside to inside and would explain when I arrived. Long story short, there had been a mayfly hatching! They offered a table in the distillery and said they’d move us as soon as another table became available. No need...we loved it there! Spent some time talking with the co-owner. Started with the Oaks Lily—fantastic. Then switched to the Smoked Honey Lemonade—even better!

FYI - there is no food here, but you apparently can bring your own in!

I really loved having the ability to reserve an outdoor table ahead of time, social distancing is very important to me right now and this business and staff did a great job with that!

The mayflies were so terrible, we had to move inside but we still felt safe and comfortable. The staff is attentive and the drinks were fun and delicious!
