Bloody Mary Bar

Wood Shop Social

In addition to their carefully curated lunch and dinner menu as well as an extensive selection of bourbon and wine, Wood Shop Social offers a substantial brunch menu featuring favorites like Cherry Cobler French Toast and Breakfast Poutine.

But where Wood Shop really hits its stride is through its seemingly never-ending Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar during Sunday Brunch. Start with their homemade Bloody Mary mix and choose from an abundance of garnishes such as cucumbers, jalapenos, celery, dill pickles, cherry tomatoes, pickled asparagus, pickled carrots, various hot sauces, olives, cocktail onions, horseradish, venison, cheese cubes, and more!


Corky’s Beal City Tavern

At Corky’s Beal City Tavern, the drinks are strong, and the atmosphere is laid back and welcoming. But what truly sets their Bloody Mary’s apart from the rest is their distinctiveness.

Unlike the premade mixes you find elsewhere, Beal City’s concoction can be tailored precisely to your liking. Allowing you to craft your Bloody Mary just the way you prefer. It’s this attention to detail and customization that makes the experience at Beal City truly exceptional.  The garnishes are simple: olives, pickles, and cocktail onion.

The Barn Door

The Barn Door is a family-run business that focuses on great food and service while providing you with the best local harassment around! You’ll get that down-home feeling when visiting The Barn Door. Their extra spicy Bloody Mary’s start with regular tomato juice combined with seasonings and all fresh ingredients including fresh garlic, onions, and other vegetables. Catherine, the owner of The Barn Door, also adds two top-secret ingredients that she says she’ll never divulge! All Bloody Mary’s are served in an Old-Bay-rimmed pint glass with a garlic and jalapeno-stuffed olive and spicy pickle spear – also seasoned in-house!

The Barn Door also sells their Bloody Mary mix to-go, so be sure to grab a jug before you leave!

“A few years back a few friends and I made our own unofficial Bloody Mary tour! It was a blast to go to different local establishments to find our favorite. We agreed that The Barn Door had our vote! I am determined to wear Cathy and her staff down in order to find their secret ingredient! We are definitely looking forward to the Meet Mt. Pleasant Bloody Mary official tour!”

Camille’s Prime

Camille’s Prime, located inside Mountain Town Station in downtown Mt. Pleasant, is a 75-seat intimate restaurant featuring upscale comfort food and a delicious Sunday brunch. The Prime Bloody Mary consists of vodka, tomato juice, celery salt, a dash of hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and fresh cracked peppercorns. It is served in a glass rimmed with kosher salt, smoked paprika, and garlic salt, and finished with a green olive, dill pickle spear, lime, and a slice of crispy bacon.

Camille’s Prime calls it, “basically combining a nutritional breakfast with a hangover cure!
