What a pleasant surprise this bistro style bar is. If you love whiskey this is the place for you... if not it is still a good place to be. We called for a quick drink and stayed for a bottle of rioja with a cheese platter. Both were excellent and the service was good, friendly staff.

A friend recommended Bothy. Ate at aprox. 8pm. We had tomato bacon soup, steak pie and short ribs. The food was excellent. Service was all around great. It's quite a small restaurant. Clean and located in a quieter part of the industrial area on Calgary Trail. Large selection of whiskey and wine. Would recommend it and return again in the... More

The Bothy is a magical place. Magnificent selection of Scotch and Wine, paired with uncomplicated menu. We celebrated Robbie Burns night there recently (me and 21 friends), and it is a most amazing event! The food, the scotch and Andrew Walls make it an full interactive production!! The kitchen produces authentic, and delicious meals. The host staff are friendly and... More

I would have rated this a 5 as I came to this restaurant because they listed they had Macallan 12 on their menu, but they did not. Their website is not updated. This was disappointing. However the staff accommodates us as the tables were all reserved, they got us a table before reservations showed up. They were very attentive to... More

This is the second time we've been to The Bothy. Chelsea is such a great host and I've never met a young person moe knowledgable on scotch and wine, fantastic selections of both and you can get flights of each. The beet salad is oh so good and rich with sugared pecans. I also had the truffle Brie and it... More

Awesome selection of whisky's. Good food. Good selection of cheeses and pretty good service. A nice little local watering hole, but also worth the drive to check out for an Old Fashioned. Yes, they make them properly!

Visited The Bothy with some friends for cocktails and appies. The facility is quite small and has a decent patio. The service was only adequate. We were seated promptly by the manager and well taken care of. When the wait staff started their shifts at 5:00 the service was spotty albeit the place was nearly empty. The wait staff were... More

Went to The Bothy for my sisters birthday, first time there but never heard a bad word about it, quite the opposite actually. It's a very intimate place with lovely decor and an absolutely amazing wine and whiskey selection complete with education for both to help you properly select something for what you have a palate for. The service was... More

First time here to use a Groupon and wow did we love it! An extensive Scotch listing and impressive wine list.
