This is a great place for drinks and food and good times hanging with friends. The atmosphere is excellent. Very open architecture. The drinks and food are top notch, and our group really liked that we could get that level of food in a casual...More

Stopped off for lunch prior to going to the airport. I was not drinking which is why you would probably be going to Cutwater. That is why I may try it again. The food however was less than exciting. I wish they had a few...More

Went to check out this place after having sampled the Gin and finding it very similar to Hendricks which I quite like. Went late one evening, had a few cocktails. The place was quiet but the building is cool and selection of drinks was decent....More

If you come on a busy night, there are no waiters. You will need to order at the bar and then your food is brought to your table. Try the back part of the bar, the line is short! You don’t have to wait too...More

We really enjoyed our night out! Plenty of seating and great food and drinks. Would have given 5 stars but you have to order everything at the bar and the wait was 10 minutes to put in order so put a little damper on our...More

This is a new distillery which is the brainchild of the Ballast Point Brewery. The building is gorgeous, with waterfalls, lots of wood and chrome! Cutwater makes their own liquor, and mix up imaginative drinks with whiskey, bourbon, rum, gin, vodka and herbal liqueur. You...More
