Went to the opening of the Whiskey Barrel Saturday night and would have enjoyed it or would go back if it wasn't for all the smoke could not cut it with a knife, now can they get away with that though there was no smoking in Richmond?

Nobody gives a damn about a law that was passed against the people's will. Our Madison Communist Health Dept. did that one all on their own. I don't even smoke and I think it's wrong to tell a person how to run his or her business. If you don't like smoke, don't go where it's at.

So I guess the Health Department shouldn't be allowed to tell a restaurant how or how not to store and prepare food? And by the way you shouldn't speak for "the people" because I myself believe it was the right thing to do in passing the No Smoking Ordinance.....I only wish it was enforced. If put before "the people" I am confident the intelligent people in Madison County would make it "Law".

I don't like paying $5 for a DJ. If they charge a door cover it should be for a band. I ordered a Fuzzy Navel and the guy didn't even know how to make it.

The place is not intended to be a gay bar. So if you cannot handle the environment, and it is a bar environment, then please go elsewhere and be with your own kind.

Some of us plan to lay drunk there until the owners go belly up like all the others have done.

All bars in this town have there nights. Drunks are everywhere but that's what u get. Smoking well that is a personal choice by everyone. Deal with it or shut up. Run your house the way u want it but whiskey was a good place and I like it. This town needs good drinking places

Richmond needs another bar? I don't think so, there are already to many now. Richmond in itself looks like it needs a good bath. There are trashed houses and yards and these are being published in the local paper for everyone to see how nasty that town is. Maybe the rest of the bars need to be cleaned up like First Street was. As far as the Whiskey, it's the same low life dump that attracts the trash of society. Same as the Maverick, just a different name.

Well Richmond is like any other place in America. The government is taking money out of the pockets of people who need it. I love the bar and if you have any problem address them with JD and he will help you. It seems to be popular on the weekends!

The Whiskey Barrel isn't run anything like the Maverick was? Why do people try and put down others that are trying to run a successful business, and put down anything they can? If all you can complain about is cigarette smoke, then it must be a good place. Hell, go play BINGO! I had a hell of a time in there, and unlike the Maverick, I didn't have to worry about a bunch of dumbass troublemakers. JD and his boys do a great job, and it's a good time. Keep it up JD!
