Nickel and Rye
As the best whiskey bar Dallas has to offer, we specialize in hand crafted cocktails, local & unique beers, rye whiskeys, and a chef-driven menu. We also serve a fantastic brunch each and every Saturday and Sunday!
I made a reservation for the Michigan game/a birthday and I even updated it in the morning to be less people with someone on the phone and they were like “thanks for letting us know” when I got there they said they don’t do reservations on game days and I should just sit anywhere. In my open table reservation I put that it was someone’s bday and I was like well do you do anything for bdays, and they were like “no not really”. The burgers are awful. Fried pickles are really good and our waitress was sweet. Just overvalued a super meh experience. Doesn’t seem to be run by super experienced people.
It was freezing outside but they wouldn’t close the door
Love this place. It’s out brunch go to.
Made an OpenTable reservation only to show up to the restaurant being open seating, and full. Quite disappointing, but we were able to get a table eventually. Service was abysmal - we were there for almost 2 hours and saw our server maybe 5 times. Good hangout spot, but wouldn't go again for a meal.
I had heard a lot about this restaurant so I definitely want to try it but I was somewhat disappointed. The server was really nice and helpful and recommended their best dish wish was the funnel cake and fried chicken and I was really disappointed with how the food tasted. It was below what I expected. I also asked for a strawberry lemonade and got a drink that tasted nothing like a strawberry lemonade. The ambiance is nice and it is a lively spot to hang out with friends.
Had an amazing time at nickel & rye with my date. Staff is friendly and conversational. Food was amazing! Sangria was also delicious! Would highly recommend as a place to head out and enjoy after work or for a date night.
The venue was great for a brunch and the service was awesome. The large pitchers of mimosas are great. We came when the live music was starting which was really loud and we couldn't really hear one another so we will probably avoid that in the future. Other than that one issue the venue is definitely a great spot to go for a fun brunch with friends.
Cool place to chill, drink some brew, and eat some chicken!
Love this place! I had the crab benedict for brunch and it was delicious. Great price on their mimosas too. I've also been here just for drinks and loved it as well. Awesome staff and live music on Sundays!
This was my first visit, but won't be my last. The ambiance was very casual and warm. And the crab benny didn't disappoint the palate!
Went for brunch. Drinks, food and music were all great. Perfect for a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
Only complaint I have is the table they sat us at out side. the countertop hang was not wide enough and I'm 5'1 the shortest one in the group and I hit my knee 3 times just trying to get seated. Other than that food, atmosphere was great.
Service was exceptional. Atmosphere and good were outstanding.
Our Server for Easter brunch was what made our visit. The food was also great. However, the loud blaring unedited rap music was not what I anticipated to listen to with my 7 and 5 year old for Easter brunch. Again, however, we didn't complain Bc we brought kids to a bar. Our server was aware enough to try to skip songs every time she noticed.
Love this place! Great drinks and fun atmosphere
Dominique, our server, was Great! Great deal on mimosas too.
We had a great time getting together with friends we hadn't seen in a while. Had wonderful service, great food & awesome drinks! Happy hour is amazing!
It was good but the next day we noticed the waitress charged us more than what our bill was for.
Nothing about this place was good. Have other reviewers been here lately? First issue was we parked in a mostly empty parking lot behind the place and after we were out of the car some valet guy runs up and says its $5 to park. That was a joke and a ripoff. Half of the place we were told is closed (maybe because we went late on a Sun afternoon?) but expected better in every way. Had two just OK drinks (with less than OK service) and left.
Inside noise level was over the top. Not a great selection for a more intimate discussion.
Great food and service. Fun relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended!
We had the chicken and funnel. cake. The chicken was outstanding. I wish the funnel cake had been a little crispier.
Amazing food and service with unique menu choices. Highly recommended!
Food was delicious and staff very friendly and accommodating.
Great time! Can’t wait to go back! My friends loved that i picked this place for Brunch! Food was also good! Anddd they had the Saints game on! Also the live band was on point! Atmosphere was great! Mixed crowd!
Made a reservation but did not need one for this empty bar with food. Server was attentive for the first round of drinks and then my coworkers had to order from the bar the remainder of our visit. Advertising for live music at 7:00 brought us together but the singer didn't begin setting up until after 8 and starting singing by 9:00. Music was really good once it began, appetizers we're great too. Just more of a laid back bar scene and not business outing reservation style.
Go to Nickel and Rye for the craft cocktails, whiskey list, Scotch list, and beer. Has one of the better Scotch lists in Dallas. Less impressed with dinner menu, although the brunch menu sounded more interesting. LIkes: dog friendly patio (with puppy menu), people watching spot overlooking McKinney Ave, great waitstaff, vibrant crowd.
We came around 6:30 to catch happy hour and their Wednesday night specials. Fantastic prices for delicious drinks and food. The only downside was the length of time it took to get our drinks, we sometimes waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine or a cocktail... unacceptable.
Great food and atomsphere!
Best ever with best prices!! The fried Quail was amazing grace!!!
We came for a bachelorette party and the waiters made it really fun for us! Love coming here
This was my 4th time at Nickel and Rye and just like all previous times-- it was amazing! The staff is extremely fun and very attentive. The food is fantastic-- definitely would recommend the cheese board if you're doing happy hour OR the chicken and funnel cakes if you're doing brunch. The patio is an awesome atmosphere and the live music is always great-- definitely a good spot to hit up on the weekends.
Great Spicy Crab Dip and Brunch specials.
I made a reservation for my friend's birthday party here and it was great! The food was great, drinks were great, and the outside setting was pleasant. Customer service was great and we had a fantastic time! What was nice was that it wasn't overcrowded, but was in a great location
Well, the food was decent but a bit overpriced for what we got. The service was really lacking! It took forever to get acknowledged to even order drinks. We had to keep flagging down someone to help us, instead of someone checking in to see if we needed anything. And considering half the place was empty, that wasn't acceptable as far as service goes. Glad we got to experience a place we haven't been to before but doubtful that we will ever go back.
Came here with a group of 8 for a bachelorette party for brunch. Delicious food and great mimosas. Ate and drank a ton and was only $22/person. Great deal.
Stopped in for a pre-dinner drink last Friday and we ended up getting the meat and cheese board too. The weather was nice so we grabbed a table on their patio so we could people watch. Nice relaxed vibe, the cocktails were great, decent band playing songs you knew. Definitely would return.
Girls night dinner was great
Not the first time at this place, but definitely will be the last time! We waited over 20 minutes for drinks and a hour and a half for food! Clearly very under staffed and the waiters just kept telling us that our food was "coming". When our food arrived, it basically came on a salad plate with that portion size. The first time we were there, which was at the beginning of the month, things were different, that is why we went back and took out of town guest. Plus, we had reservations.
We had a great time. Our waitress had a huge group and still dealt with us beautifully.
