“Drinks and Sliders!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Headed to Saloon and their inconspicuous entrance this past weekend with a few other couples. Cool ambiance and very impressive whiskey selection. Drinks and apps were great, and while I enjoyed my pork shoulder entree, next time I'll focus more on the drinks and get the sliders. "Hipster" beers were a nice way to finish off the night. We sat at a table, but it looked like a good bar scene too. We'll be back.

“Like visiting a speakeasy.”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

Once you find the entrance, you'll be so glad you did. Saloon has a great underground, uber-masculine vibe-- it's all dark woods and leather inside. The cocktails are incredible, and the food is nothing to sneeze at either. I usually just go for a drink and snack on some of the small bites, like a charcuterie plate or the excellent sliders. Everything tastes fantastic!

“really cool”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

great little bar with i think the nicest ambiance i have seen in a bar in a long time. solid dark wood walls everywhere and big leather booths. staff is dressed in prohibition era clothing which is cool. huge cocktail selection and vast whiskey selection too. a tad pricey but not a big deal. service was good, it was sunday afternoon so it wasn't too busy but i really liked it.

“Solid Bar, Can Get Loud”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

It is a nice atmosphere and the bartenders tend to seem like they know what they are doing. Prices may be a bit steep and occasionally the service can be difficult on the weekends. Very nice Whiskey selection.

“Great Cocktail Menu”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

We like to stop in for drink, they make a great cocktail. The Saloon has a cool old fashion vibe. The bar is dark, the bartenders are in ties. Its a great place to bring people or stop in for a drink.
