    Love the setting here. Nice and quiet, great garden. The only negative is the outdoor seating is stools with no back support.

    Scallops, Bourbon Bananas, and Spinach Dip were terrific. The Gnocchi, Sweet Potato Fries, and Cheesecake were good but not as good as the other dishes. The service was amazing!

    This was our first time at Mary Celeste and we had a wonderful time! The whiskey flights were tasty and fun, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We ate inside and were happy we did because it has a very cool, library hide-away vibe. We’ll definitely be back and will be recommending to friends.

    Quaint little whiskey/wine bar. They do have food but very limited. 4 entrees, beef,chicken,fish. great charcuterie board which we had. Would not recommend to eat dinner here as table not conducive to comfortable dining. Outside dining you sit around a whiskey barrel(various sizes) on bar stools. Inside which only seats about 15 people at low, leather seats with little table in between the chairs. Bar had 6 or 7 seats. I would go just to try some whiskey or wine as they do have flights. big selection of whiskey. only place on the south shore i have seen more is the Charred Oak Tavern in middleborough. decent wine selection as well. good for drinks and little appetizer as they have a few of those on menu. Be prepared as food and drink is pricey. Be interesting to see what happens in winter as there is only seating for 20-25 total inside. Will return.

    What a pleasant surprise. Didn’t really go to drink whiskey but all other aspects were over the top. Enjoyed a very nice bottle of Cabernet after various samples. The Server/Bartender was the best. Thank you Donna! We shared Seared Scallops, Brussels & Gnocchi. Would definitely recommend.

    Absolutely loved this place! We were a fairly large group and were accommodated brilliantly. The concept of shared plates at first took us by surprise but worked very well. The scallops and the charcuterie board were both standouts. Almost everyone in our party had one of the many wine flights. All were pleased.

    It was our first time here. Unfortunately, we didn’t catch the servers name but she was a rockstar. I’m pretty sure she was all by herself and she was flying to every table and still keeping a smile on. I hope that the MC team doesn’t put her through that so often. The food was great and my new favorite flavor combo is truffle and honey. Such a flavor bomb! When the second server arrived, you can tell he knew a lot about the whiskeys and recommended certain spirits to certain individuals based on their palate. All in all, a great experience. If I had to say anything negative is that the bench in the corner, where we sat, needs more cushions. Haha.

    Our date night (50 years together) was Made special by RC playing “our” song, completely unrehearsed. The waitstaff was amazing and very attentive without overbearing, very knowledgeable without being condescending. The food was really good and beautiful presentation. We loved, it was a special evening in an intimate setting.

    Brought my Aunt from Georgia to have dinner tonight. We order the scallop and the sirloin steak entree. It was more than enough food for the two of us We each had vodka and soda for a drink and tried a sample of Japanese whiskey. Drinks were great. Great atmosphere. My aunt can’t wait to return and try some of the appetizer specials we saw others enjoying. Service was fantastic. Michelle did a great job of explaining everything and taking care of us even when it started getting busy.

    Excellent service the staff was very friendly and professional even offering a walkthrough on my first ever whisky flight. The food was amazing my wife and I shared a charcuterie for two, dumplings, and the sirloin for two. We were more than satisfied with the portions. Will definitely return to enjoy more flights and food in a cool environment.

    This is a unique dining experience. It is a whiskey and wine bar where you sit at small tables ,sharing small plates of absolutely delicious food. This is accompanied by flights of wine or whiskey……service is excellent, you feel like you are sitting in a cozy library……highly recommended. The only down side is that dishes are small and overall it’s pretty expensive so save it for a special occasion.

    I really loved going to the Mary Celeste. It has a small dining area and full bar. There is outdoor seating, but the weather was not conducive. The walls are adorned with a wide variety of whiskies and other spirits. The menu is small, but we’ll curated. We really enjoyed everything we had, which included Brussels sprouts, a charcuterie plate, pork belly, sweet potato fries, and a glazed banana dessert. The pours of whiskey are large, so one has to make a good decision when choosing.

    We have been wanting to try this place for a while so on a beautiful day we checked it out. The place is quaint, the inside is really nice typical whiskey-type lounge the outside is cute with barrels for high tops. I am very much a bourbon guy and am familiar with their prices. The flights were small and priced high three 1oz pours for $25 the least expensive. There is no silverware as everything is served "tapas" style. Our food was delicious, app, main course, and dessert BUT the portions are small, again tapas-style. Our server was EXCELLENT and we are not complaining as we knew the style going in as far as portions. In the end, our bill was a little over $125 for two with tip. Overall we will be back for a full drink, a charcuterie board etc..as to us this is a special type of place, not someplace we would frequent often. Just writing this to advise people like us who are budget conscious about what to expect before you experience sticker shock LOL.

    This place is AMAZING! The drinks and food are great and the ambience is unparalleled. This place provides a super unique dining experience in an intimate setting. Haven’t done a whiskey tasting only the wine tasting, but the wine pours were generous for the price and the staff is all very knowledgeable about their wine list. We’ve been twice and had a wonderful experience both times!

    A very unique dining experience. The menu is basically tapas but the food is plentiful and prepared very well , The dishes are loaded with cheeses, roasted vegetables, nuts and other accruements. There is a huge selection of whiskeys, bourbon and other liquors that can be bought individually or in some cases in a "flight" format. The wine list is small but more that sufficient for those whose palette may prefer the more vintage wines. The waitstaff was only one person, Charles, most of the evening. He did a fantastic job given we was the server, bus boy etc. The drink orders were very slow to arrive and not brought at the same time so everyone at our table could indulge simultaneously. It was a bit pricey but given the atmosphere and quality of the products served, well worth the cost.

    The only complaint I have is the size of this place… should be bigger! Just because I’d love to come in with a bigger party and not feel like we are taking up the entire space. Otherwise, the Mary Celeste experience was absolutely fantastic! From the food, to the service, to the atmosphere, this was an absolutely fantastic evening with our favorite friends. Can’t wait to share this with my adult kids!!
