MacGregor’s Whiskey Bar Manzanita, Oregon – When You Go to the Oregon Coast!
Words and Travel Photos by Steven Shomler
When you find yourself on the Oregon Coast – if at all possible, whether you like whiskey or not, you need to pay a visit to MacGregor’s Whiskey Bar located in the quaint town of Manzanita.
MacGregor’s Whiskey Bart is about a 40-minute drive north of Tillamook and about an hour drive south of Astoria.
Why MacGregor’s Whiskey Bar?
So, why MacGregor’s? It’s a charming place to have an exquisite meal, and a great cocktail, a craft beer, a glass of wine, or, of course, whiskey.
The “kitchen” is ridiculously small at MacGregor’s Manzanita and the magic they make happen in it is downright stunning!
My favorite thing to eat at MacGregor’s is the Lobster Bisque.
Goodness! This delectable dish is one of my all-time favorite dishes. I am not saying one of my favorite dishes at MacGregor’s, I mean this dish makes my list of the best dishes I have had in my life. The lobster bisque is decadently rich, silky smooth and served with a baguette and salted Irish butter. Get it and thank me later.
Another stand out is the Mac and Cheese. During one of my visits to MacGregor’s I was seated outside in the front next to my very own personal “fire pit”. The gentleman at the next fire pit over requested 3 orders of the mac and cheese – one to eat now and two orders to go!
Of course, I had to ask him why he was doing such a thing. He went on to wax eloquently about how much he loves this mac and cheese!
They have various boards at MacGregor’s including a Pâté Board that features Olympia Provisions’ Green Peppercorn and Wine Pâté; a Charcuterie Board, a Cheese Board that features Rogue Creamy Smokey Blue, a Northwest Board with smoked salmon, and a Pastrami Board!

You can get delightful cocktails both with and without whiskey, wine by the glass or bottle, they have well curated list of craft beer & craft cider, non-alcoholic drinks like soda & hot chocolate, as well as non-alcoholic cocktails, cognac, and various specialty liqueurs.
The list of featured cocktails changes seasonally. I love cocktails and I have always been very pleased with the creative cocktails I find on the menu when I visit.
Get dessert when you visit MacGregor’s! They usually have at least 5 dessert options on the menu, including Scottish Shortbread with chocolate & whiskey caramel sauces, Spotted Dick (Scottish sponge cake & real imported Devonshire cream) and more.
I absolutely love the sticky toffee cake – a culinary ecstasy so brilliant that it has received its very own article MacGregor’s Sticky Toffee Cake – An Oregon Coast Culinary Gem You Don’t Want to Miss! https://www.culinarytreasure.com/macgregors-sticky-toffee-cake-an-oregon-coast-culinary-gem-you-dont-want-to-miss/
