This place was great, but I would not recommend it simply because it was so loud inside. This is the second time I went, and they need to add padding on the walls or ceiling to prevent the noise from setting off my Apple watch on a Sunday afternoon.

This is an overall fun experience; they could afford to elevate their food game and offer additional non-liquor based drinks. Our service was a tad slow but we weren’t in any hurry. I suggest they get a friar as potato chips with every item is not ideal; get French fries on the menu stat!

We saw the food menu before we went and knew it was basic bar food, but wow was it bad.
It was waaaay too loud.
The "sugar free" cream soda, or maybe it was the bourbon had a bunch of sugar.

Overall experience was good,food was great, waitress was very polite. Noise level was so bad we had trouble hearing and understanding her. Axe throwing was fun and instruction was great. Not much of a drinker so more of a non alcohol drink selection would be good.

Cannot say enough about how much we LOVE Dragon Distillery! The atmosphere is great and fun! The cocktails are fantastic and the food NEVER disappoints! Our server, Aubrey was pleasant, funny and was always there when she knew we needed something; like she could read our minds😁 Will be back soon and often.

Loved it. Excellent atmosphere of a medieval/fantasy themed tavern with creative and delicious drinks. Our server was friendly and helpful. There was a trivia night happening and axe throwing and board games available to play. We especially enjoyed the Random Encounter shots and the spiked cupcake. Yum! We will definitely be going back.

This is a fantastic couple hours fun. The owners and staff are wonderful. They were welcoming, informative and really cared about how we all felt throughout our tasting and axe throwing. Although we only had snacks, they were delicious, the pretzel especially nice. Axe throwing was awesome and we’d definitely revisit. Loved that you could buy any of your favorite drinks from the tasting.

The Dragon Distillery was a great date place. We were greated and seated as soon as we arrived. Our waitress was very friendly she explained what we could expect and answered all of our questions. The food was surprisingly good. I would recommend the pretzel with crab delicious. We were able to do tastings and one of the owners came over and explained the process of how our choices were made. This Distillery uses locally grown corn which is definitely a plus. Great experience.

Definitely a fun place to visit, especially on trivia night! We love the drinks here: good variety, creative, and tasty. The food is decent pub fare. Crab dip looked like it was a lot, but in fact there was tons of bread and not much dip. It was one of the better crab dips I've had in Frederick though!

We loved it here. We had the greatest time for our anniversary. Everyone was super friendly. The only thing I'd change is we'd go earlier so that way we'd have more time to enjoy everything they had to offer. (Like the board games!)

Everything was perfect. Went on a full Saturday night. The Staff was polite and extra nice. Food and drinks were yummy. Ax and Star throwing was the icing on the cake. It was fun! and loved seeing/hearing the excitement when bullseye's were thrown. :) Definitely will make this a go to spot.
