Gastro Pub
The Cellar at Duckworth’s combines gastropub fare from our chef-driven menu, with a tap list of specialty and rare beers served at appropriate temperatures to their styles, and signature cocktails that are hand crafted to order by our mixologists. Inspired by an era of time that’s long past, the underground space built originally in 1912, naturally has a speakeasy, prohibition-era feel with its original brick walls and exposed ceiling joists. Even our attentive staff dresses the part from the era. We hope to take you back in time for a bit while enjoying good food and drink with friends and family.

It was crowded and noisy, and the high top chairs near the bar are unsteady.
But the service was excellent, the food choices were interesting, and our food was good. We ordered the waffle cone appetizer, scallops, and salmon.

This place is amazing. It was our first time at Cellar and we will definitely be back. The drink selection is really fun and the food was spectacular. The only negative is we were crunched for time and got desert to go and it took 20 minutes to get our desert. Fortunately our overall experience and eating the delicious smore when we got home made up for that.

We were looking for a last minute reservation for a small group that allowed casual dress (we had been walking around and hanging out all day). This place was so unexpectedly amazing. We will be sure to be back. The cocktails are delicious. The appetizers! We had the Brussel sprouts, chargrilled oysters, and pork buns. Those plates are shareable and start to fill you up bit by bit. We ordered bigger plates as well. I had the market fish which was Chilean Sea Bass. It was cooked perfectly. The only thing at the table that we ordered and wouldn't necessarily get again is the shrimp and grits. It was pretty good but it came with an etouffe that was a bit salty. But like I said, we'd go back to eat more things from the menu in a heartbeat.

Super salty food.

The oysters had more pecorino Romano than I’ve ever had before and the oysters were literally the size of a dime.

The speakeasy atmosphere is always inviting. Our waiter Jordan greeted us upon arrival and explained the drinks and the menu. Our guests loved the attention and we all ordered a drink that peeked our curiosity. The drinks didn't fall short. The menu was next and the candied bacon was a hit. The brussel sprouts were as well. Two of us had grouper which was cooked to perfection. One had the waffle cones and burrata salad. My other guest had the burger which he loved. A few more drinks and some delicious wine and the evening was complete. It was the perfect choice for entertaining out of town guests in an interesting and fun atmosphere.

Really enjoyed the entire experience! Darren is a fantastic server who did a wonderful job. Beer cellar tour is short but interesting. Steak was excellent. Totally different vibe and menu than Duckworths. Highly recommend!

Exceptional meal. Our server, Anthony, was spot on attentive and knowledgeable of the perfect pairings of food to wine or drink. Accurately described all small and large plates. The steaks were delicious and the Chilean Sea Bass was the best my girlfriend and daughter have ever ordered. Well done! We will be back.

Got to have Darren as your server! He will show you everything that this places has to offer. Really cares about making sure your experience is good and has amazing recommendations. He even took my wife and I to the beer cellar and gave us not only a knowledgeable tour but showed us the history, tip and tricks, and well as his passion. The drinks were out of this world and the food was perfection.

We felt like we discovered a hidden gem! The food was so interesting and delicious and our server was really good. Unfortunately, I can’t remember his name. He gave us the history of this unique restaurant as well! It was a “Speakeasy” in the 1920’s, then later a jazz place. We were thrilled!!

Made a reservation a couple days in advance, specifically for standard seating and not high-top. We even changed days to ensure standard seating. When we get to the restaurant we are told that we can sit at the bar or a high-top. The high-top was more cramped than any bus or airplane I’ve ever been on. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of how you couldn’t even look at two menus because there wasn’t enough space. It was also pretty warm so it made for a very uncomfortable experience. We got up and left before ordering. Wouldn’t recommend if you are relying on having a special night out.
