    The staff are the only ones who earned any stars for this place because the rest was a bad evening for new years eve because of the owner. It was busy but the staff, and this is key as I will explain later, who work there were super friendly and nice. I appreciate their good service. There were a lot of people there for new years celebration. I had a good time. The owner was there this evening. I was trying to meet him or at least talk to him but he was pretty rude all night. For the short or brief moments I was able to talk to him he only had rude comments to say to me and blew me off the whole time he was there. He was controlling the music and taking requests so I wanted to request a song and he blew me off. I asked If I could order a drink and he told me to order it from someone who worked there. He said he was the owner, I figured he should probably not be standing behind the counter like he works there if he doesn't want people to order from him. Subsequently he should be nicer to patrons who go there so they will want to come back and leave good reviews. Times I have been to other bars the owners sit on the other side of the bar for this reason and also are really nice to their patrons. Other things I noticed: Clean restroom An extended upstairs location I haven't been to yet Most of the time good music (metal genre) Unique and delicious selection of drinks

    Great little place for some great wine and a chill atmosphere. The bar food didn't disappoint and the music was on point. It is one of the older and more haunted locations with activity in Ocala. We had the resident spirit knock over the little mason jar on our table and flip the candle around inside.

    Amazing wine bar with mead and beers! Always a chill atmosphere and everyone here is a delight! Haven’t been here in a while but I will always recommend the keep!

    The ambiance in this place is great! They have the friendliest staff, a delicious menu, and an excellent selection of wine. They constantly have a rotation of musical acts for your enjoyment. The friendly atmosphere here is perfect for mingling with new people or just getting together with a group of friends. Oh by the way, did I mention the wine? :-)

    Great place to hang out, especially if you love wine! Owners are friendly and helpful when helping you to choose a wine selection. Every time we’ve been here it’s been a pleasant experience.
