Staff was very nice and inviting. We did the flight of four .25 ounce pours of their selection of spirits, all distilled in house. The owner served us our flight and described each of our selections to both of us. Would come again just for the pleasent environment alone.

Axe throwing was a lot of fun. Their food menu is very limited but overall a fun place to go on a date. 100% would recommend the medieval mint and the coffee drink.

It was a wonderful experience. We even had one of the owners come and explain the process of the distilling. She was lovely. We both wanted to buy a bottle of things but decided to return in a week or so to decide what exactly to pick!

The atmosphere was nice and casual. The decorations around the distillery were perfect for the place. Food was surprisingly very tasty we complimented the owner. Sample selection of drinks was outstanding. We will be going back there with more friends to try the ax throwing next time.

We had a Groupon for the tasting. Each tasting pour was more than adequate to get a feel for the distilled spirits. Had a very informative explanation of each blend and were given plenty of time to taste. The ax throwing was fun too!

We all had a great dining experience (the gyro was incredible). Axe and star throwing was great fun. The drinks were tasty and there are many to choose from. Our server, and everyone that works there, was super friendly. I love coming here with friends, and even alone, because the atmosphere is upbeat and fun.

Bought a Groupon for this place and it was a pretty good deal! It was a 4 sample tasting, free cocktail, and 5 axe throws for 2. The staff was nice and friendly. There was one woman server but she was able to keep up with everyone. They provide board games to play at the tables. The ambience was nice. The food is affordable and large portions of starch (they don't want drunk people lol). Most importantly, the alcohol tasted amazing. Highly recommend the moonshine.

Cool place with a medieval theme. While it is a distillery, it is more of a "bar" type place that you could go and hang out at repeatedly. They've got AXE THROWING.

A lot of fun. Drinks are of average price. Worth going out of the way to visit, just for the theme if nothing else!

Good times. The owner explained the heritage of each spirit very well. There were a few that were very tasty and would be good as a single but most would be good with a mixer. Regarding the food, I was not expecting much but my burger was excellant.

SO. MUCH. FUN! We had the cold three-dip set served with pita and chips. Very good. We also had a cocktail each and a flight of four tastes from the distillery. We all agreed that Dragon's Pie was an excellent cocktail. (Fannie Tutt Lemon Meringue Moonshine with Lemonade) The axe-throwing was lots of fun. We each had 5 turns and wished we had gone for more. All in all a lovely afternoon.

This place is like heaven for me- I am a huge Whiskey geek and love everything about the distillation process, I am also a geek in many other ways, that are all being spotlighted in this magical place. If you love Game of Thrones, Tolkien, Harry Potter, Medieval themes, Axe Throwing, good food, great spirits and so much more- this is the place to go!
This was my first visit with friends, but I am sure that it is the first of many, it was such a wonderful afternoon, I can't wait to go back and introduce more people to this AWESOME distillery! Thank you for wonderful service and a great experience!

Really great experience! I didn't give it a 5-star just because I think more can be done for the food menu. The pulled pork Nacho and crab dip are the only appetizing choices. Burgers tasted like frozen, rapidly placed in a microwave.

As always, we had a good time: great drinks and yummy snacks. We went on a Sunday late afternoon, so it was quiet and we got to have a nice chat with Mark. The new Golden Basilisk Bourbon is amazing!

Picked up a great deal on Groupon for ax throwing and spirit tasting at Dragon Distillery and they did not disappoint. The service was AWESOME! Ashley was on top of her game and super friendly. All of the staff was very friendly and went out the way to make sure we had everything we needed. To top it off it was a beautiful day outside, sunny and not too hot so we sat out front and enjoyed a great meal and drinks. Thanks again to all of the Dragon Distillery staff, you guys ROCK!

The food and drink samples were all very good. We had purchased a Groupon for Axe throwing which was fun, but very limited for the price and the only reason for the less than perfect score.

We will be back.
