    Came here on Saturday night with the parents. The front is bumping and loud, and the back is more chill to sit and talk. Whiskey, Bourbon and Scotch list is amazing! Would go back.

    This bar is for "The Guy that Says He's Born-and-Raised in NY, but is from Upstate" We recommend going with the "Catholic Guilt," a signature whisky cocktail that is oddly symbolic of your childhood. Read more

    Cozy gastropub great for a weeknight date. Share a bunch of small plates: Scottish egg is delish, risotto was my fav. Skip the grilled cheese flight, it's tasty, but too filling.

    don't be afraid of the haggis! it's pretty good and, if anything, pretty mild. dig into their scotch book (it really is as long as a book) and get at least one scotch egg.

    Though a very cool place, Highlands can be noisy and crowded during a weekend night. Be sure to reserve a table ahead of time and for a quieter ambiance, try to get a table on the back room.

    Try the Innis & Gunn beer on tap. Originally developed in Edinburgh to flavor barrels for cask reserve whiskey. Turns out throwing away beer is not something us Scots are good at, thus oak aged beer!

    Hostess w/the black bob is awful. After stepping on friend's bag then telling her move it out of our line of sight, she had a bouncer kick us out. We were 3 dead sober women in our 30s. Not returning
