We stopped in to Alchemy, housed in the Winchester Mansion in Ashland, OR. It was happy hour and timed just right to be before the evening plays at the Shakespeare Festival, a short walk away. My Manilla Clams were wonderful, with a spicy salsa (hot spicy so be warned). My husband enjoyed a hamburger (actually regular size on the happy... More

What an amazing place! We last visited 3 years before. When we wanted to order wine, the server told us what wine we had ordered then, and had the sommelier select something similar. Now THAT'S service! The server was attentive, courteous, and helpful. The food was unparalleled. The duck breast was perfectly cooked, and the scallops were also perfect (not... More

We went here with friends just when the newly located bar was being introduced. Great move on our part. Eager wait staff were enthused to offer us half price drinks and food. My take: they were good at twice the price, so no question I'd go back. One of the more pleasant bar scenes in Ashland, so expect it to... More

I had a wonderful cocktail called No Apology and yes the name says it all. I had a pomogranite flank steak with a blue potato purée and disappearing rice, a Caesar salad, and mini Wellington. The service is good and worth the price.

Worth just going foe their highly creative cocktail menu. The bar folk have spent countless hours designing to keep the spirit of the resturant name. Go for happy hour before 630.

The front desk and food server were professional, polite, and prompt. The atmosphere was good, there was some energy. There is an overblown wine list reflecting great care and commitment of time, time that could be spent working on the food. There are some remarkable treasures (not values) and museum-piece wines. The food was disappointing and overpriced. There are so... More

Alchemy is a good choice for a special occasion. It is located in a picturesque inn, has gourmet food, and efficient service. It is clear that the chef makes an effort to come up with creative, tasty offerings. Just having an entree make not be enough for a big appetite, as the portions are of average size. Prices are what... More

First let me say I ate and drank in the bar not the restaurant. I could go on and on about this bar. I would rather just say GO. The food is off the charts and the drinks are the best I have ever had, and I have had a LOT of drinks. The atmosphere makes you never want to... More

I was in Ashland for a couple of Shakespeare shows, and asked some locals where their favorite happy hour was. They recommended Alchemy, at the Winchester Inn, and I completely agree with them! Monday and Tuesday had happy hour prices all day, and I was lucky enough to be there then. They have wonderful drinks for great prices (I had... More
