We had a wonderful experience coming in for brunch, the music selection was great but seemed just a liiiittle loud to have a cross the table conversion. The atmosphere was great! The only thing about the food was I was looking forward to fried green tomatoes and waitress informed me much later after I order that the kitchen was out. The food was excellent though, great flavor and a selection for everyone! I would suggest fresh cream or milk for the coffee though. We are looking forward to coming back for whiskey flights and the dinner menu!

The food is always very tasty. I had the cornbread waffle sliders. I think the collards were once on the pork (better combo) rather than the chicken. Regardless very yummy dish. The downfall of the restaurant is the seating arrangements and the service. The two tops are oddly placed in front of the door to the waitstaff area on the one side and too close to other customers on the other. The server was not quick to offer specials nor respond to needs. And my personal pet peeve... my husband and I were asked “one ticket or two?”

The food was absolutely amazing! It is a little loud with the bar and music but you have the option of outdoor dining too. I will definitely go back and have told numerous people how amazing the food is. It was so good instead of dessert, I got 2 sides of regular food. 😁

Food was great! Got the chicken and waffles and a flight of whiskey. Our waitress was fine. However, at the beginning they sat us and I’m pretty sure we had no server. For over 15 mins we sat there. We had made reservations and weren’t in a hurry but 15 mins? Come on that’s unreasonable. They were busy but a group sat after us were served instantly haha so be cautious this staff are a bit unorganized. I would return but maybe just for drinks and an app.

The food was excellent. Love the corn bread waffles. The table was rather small for 4 people. Drinks were expensive. Mine had too much ice. I’d go again, but request a bigger table and stick with beer.

The staff was awesome! I ordered my burger well done and it’s wasbr cooked as ordered. Lastly, I ordered a Pepsi and the taste was off due to they were having trouble with co2. The staff made the experience not the the food.

Sat outside. Got ate up by mosquitos. Server didn’t great us for 8 minutes (that’s a longtime at the table). Food came out wrong. You name it, they screwed it up. They were nice though. Just the operation wasn’t executed.

Wonderful first visit to this sweet place, recommended by my dining partner! The Brisket with cornbread waffles was excellent, as was our appetizer of fried Okra! Fabulous flavors and pairings, vegetables were perfection! Cocktails so creative and savory! Excellent job by the waitstaff, with warm and welcoming personalities! You feel like family here!

Music too loud. They never answered their phone. I tried for 2 afternoons to ask about parking. I left 2 messages and still no return call.
Food was very good. No coffee. Had 3 dessert items: 1 no longer offered, 1 they were out of, last choice they offered to us ‘on the house’ but
without coffee so we ended our meal. Staff nice and attentive, food was good.

913 Whiskey never disappoints. We have visited numerous times and have always had good food, good service., and the bourbon is good too. This time we had the fried okra app & chicken and waffles entree. Both were excellent and reasonably priced.

The food and service were very good, but the restaurant was very noisy and the interior seats were very uncomfortable. The exterior stools weren't much better. Lowering the volume and getting more comfortable seats would make a huge difference. Very difficult to talk inside.

Hostess was a bit high strung about seating a larger group together. Claimed larger groups were coming in later that would need the tables, but they never came in while we were there. Great waitstaff service! - thank you for working with our group! Great food!

It was ok. Small place so we were very close to our neighbors. Took a while to get a simple fried chicken dinner. When I asked a straightforward question of the bartender, I received a snarky answer which didn’t sit well with me.

Waitress returned after order was placed that they were out of ribs. So I placed alternate food choice (from memory as she didn’t bring menu with the news). Shortly after our dinner was served several plates of ribs were brought out by other servers to other customers. As we were chuckling about the oddity our server told another table “out of ribs”. When dinner was served, waitress said they ran out of cornbread waffles but had fresh dough being made and should have our servings in 5-7 mins. The pimento cheese sandwich was served several minutes after all the order were served. Laughing about how the simplest dish could be so late, it arrived sans tater tots; they came another few minutes later. After completing our dinner (table of 6 adults completed eating... ie well more than 5-7 mins.). Waitress brought us 1 cornbread waffle serving (a half of a waffle, not sure where the other half went). Saying they’re still catching up so the rest of the table should get there’s soon. How is this possible given almost every order comes with a side of cornbread waffles? To top it off the chocolate bacon we order as an appetizer never came; when we inquired after dinner (when dinner was served before the requested appy, we just assumed it would come later) the waitress said something like oh I forgot to tell you, we’re out of bacon, too. So, either the kitchen staff are clueless to their food needs or the waitress is not well liked by the kitchen staff and the mgr is clueless. We’re probably not returning any time soon.
