My husband and I heard of these bloody marys. We went there this past weekend. OMG>>> what an incredible bloody mary perfectly balanced with cheese meat fresh vegies and a chicken wing. We opted for the hard boiled egg. They serve these bloody marys in 26 oz mugs. They also give you a beer back. Absolutely love em cant wait to bring our friends in 2 weeks.

Absolutely delicious work of art. The server was very professional wearing gloves as to not cross contaminate. The also have an incredible grilled chicken wing added but each weak they use a different flavor from there choices of home made sauces or dry rubs. this is definitely a 5 star plus bloody mary

I was just in last sunday and the bartenders had rings and nail polish on which isn't allowed while touching the toppings which are considered food.Ice is actually considered that also.Are these people basset certified or just rookies? Ill come in again on a sunday and take a pic and ask to speak to the owners to show them.

I would have to agree with the last statement. The bloody mary at route 12 bar is fantastic. The 2 servers at the bloody mary bar where quick professional and they were wearing gloves. The toppings were fresh the beer brat and hamburger awesome. Can't wait to bring my friends in to have one. Not to mention they had at least 4 bartenders servers and no one seemed to be waiting for anything for how buisy they were. I give this place 5 stars great job

Route 12 bar has fixed all of the issues listedhere. The people making the bloody marys were wearing gloves all the garnishings were extremely fresh and they are now using absolute vodka at least 3 sg Shots than shaking it all up. They even had fresh horse radish and a1 wichershire sauce and a few hot sauces to add to the already delightfull taste. Great job rt 12 will be in next week

I used to come in ALL the time, but things have changed dramatically at rt 12, sorry virginia and shawn, but customer service sucks recently, and watching the bartenders make the skewers literally turned my stomache, and its a sloppy mess, some things should never be changed, cause i liked it the old way to b honest

Didnt like the mix at all.And I dont think there was much vodka in it,I also wasnt asked what kind of vodka I wanted two weeks ago when I was there,Also the service was very poor. Need training in customer service and how to make a drink.Fire whoever that was two sundays ago and start fresh.Then I would try it again.Thanku

They are soso,but I would also have to agree with the stale taste of the cheese and mini burger, and yes they should use gloves.

Not very good at all,yes you get a slider and mini brat but way over cooked and taste as thow have been sitting out all day/or over night.And I agree the bartender should use gloves. People are alergic to shrimp....Hmmmmm

I was so disappointed, the blue cheese stuffed olives were mushy as they were sitting in a Tupperware container that looked as it was filled wit toxic waste, ladder was well over done, chesse was crusty from sitting out...n to watch the bartenders all cross.contaminating everything by not wearing gloves, n touching shrimp, meat, chesse, etc....I walked out as it was GROSE....someone should really call the health inspector in, before someone gets sick

This Bloody Mary is a surprise in a glass. Keep looking and you'll find more neat things in your "salad", including a meat stick straw, a mini slider, and a mini brat. The price is just right and spice is perfect. This is, truly, perfection! Keep it up guys. You have the winning combination!!

So awesome!! They may not serve breakfast, however with their Bloody Mary you dont need it!! A burger ,a brat and a menagerie of shrimp, cheeses and vegies make it a great cocktail and a meal!! Why to go Route 12!!! You sure know how to do it right!!
