Illinois | Route 12 Bar & Grill
Meet the Mega Mary. My, oh my, that is a beautiful sight. Forget the best bloody mary in Illinois, this might be the best bloody mary in the country. It's a drink and an appetizer all wrapped into one. If you leave here without trying it, you've made a huge mistake.

Maryland | Miss Shirley's
Miss Shirley's has a homemade bloody mary that doubles as a meal, as it should. They stray away from the plain and simple. Check out that garnish. Just looking at it makes you want to drop everything and go. If you're from Baltimore, count yourself lucky.
Massachusetts | Bostonia Public House
There's a lot going on in this one. Not sure exactly what we are looking at here. Maybe that's a bagel? There are fruits and veggies garnished on there as well. Everything is put together well, too. Looks fantastic, no matter what is going on here you get an A.
Michigan | Northern Latitudes Distillery
More simplicity and that's probably what you would expect from Michigan. There are probably more exquisite ones in the state, but as stated earlier, exciting doesn't always mean it is good. These guys have a good looking, simple, well-tasting bloody mary that you've got to try.

Ohio | Joe's Bar and Restaurant

Oklahoma | Kilkennys
Okay, we get it. You aren't thrilled about our decision to put the simple bloody as the winner here. The thing is, that rose is just complementing it so well. Along with the spicy flavor and simple presentation, this bloody comes quick and custom to order!
Oregon | Victorian Cafe
We had the same reaction as her when we saw this bloody mary. It is basically a meal in itself, seems like a fitting name for it if you had to name it. Onions, a meatball and some pepperjack cheese. That is a wonderful start to a Sunday morning if I've ever seen it.
Pennsylvania | Luke Wholey's Wild Alaskan Grille
This is the most aesthetically appealing bloody mary you will see on this list. We have featured these guys on our blog before and for good reason. Look at that thing! It is wonderful! The taste is perfect, but the garnish is something else.

Want some chilled dills in your bloody mary? Of course you do. Why wouldn't you want something like that? We are all in for some chilled dills in the bloody mary and you should be too. Pages Okra has a really good bloody mary and we think everyone should get out and give it a try. Kudos!
South Dakota | Mavericks
The bloody from Mavericks doesn't appear to be anything too special, nothing fancy about it. Actually, we're glad, because it tastes so good. It doesn't take a cheeseburger garnish to make a bloody mary taste good. You need to get yourself out here and give it a shot.
Tennessee | Automatic Slim's Restaurant
Oh, my! A salted rim! Why don't more bloody marys have a salted rim? Wake up, people! This is a very important detail when it comes to making the perfect bloody mary! Automatic Slim's has done a wonderful job spicing up this simple bloody mary.
Texas | South Congress Cafe
There have been rumblings that this is one of the best bloody marys in the country. Obviously, we are going to stay objectively neutral, here. I mean, everyone on this list deserves to be in the discussion. We love the fruit garnish.
Utah | St. Regis Bar at Deer Valley
If you find yourself in Park City and need a bloody mary before or after your ski day, St. Regis is the place to go. Cozy atmosphere with cocktails that get better every time you visit. The views are stunning and the place offers outdoor deck seating. Get yourself in here and try one of these bloodies! I mean, look at how pretty it is!
Vermont | Bar 802
We have to come clean with you guys. Vermont left us with very few options for top of the line bloody marys. Eventually, we landed on Bar 802's, as seen here. It is about a simple as they come, with the standard garnish you would expect to see as well. Nevertheless, reviews were good!
Virginia | Hair of the Dog Eatery
More salted rims, more pickle spears, more of the same from Hair of the Dog. Standard, but good. Just how we like it. Delicious, but not overdone. We wouldn't want it any other way.
Washington | Lowell's
Lowell's looks like a wonderfully family-friendly establishment. The perfect place to take your kids for some brunch and enjoy a nice bloody mary. The personalized garnish is awesome, and you can tell it tastes delicious from the picture.
West Virginia | The French Goat
The Bloody Marie definitely sounds French to us -we wouldn't know the difference- and the taste is out of this world. The garnish...not so French, but that's not why we chose it! Everything seems to be in order here, a simple bloody that grabs your attention and gets your mouth watering.
Wisconsin | Sobelman's Pub & Grill
Listen, we aren't even putting this up for discussion. THE BEST bloody marys come from Wisconsin. There, we said it. It was impossible for us to choose the best, there were so many options. Wicked Hop and Honey Bear both had good ones as well. Moral of the story: if you want a good bloody mary, chances are you'll find it in Wisconsin. This one from Sobelman's is a damn masterpiece.
Wyoming | Steamboats Steak & Smokehouse
Listen people: serve your bloody marys in 32 ounce mugs, please. It is badass, gives your guests more to enjoy and gives you a thick glass to pack on the garnishes. Steamboats haa themselves quite the little bloody here, certainly one that we would recommend you go and try. Your tastebuds will thank you.
