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.

Food was good. Service lacking even as they were not busy. For what we spent on food I would go somewhere else.

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.

Second time to 913 Whiskey Bar - enjoyed it tremendously both times. Great food, creative drinks as well as good beer selection. Highly rec the Shroom "handheld" sandwich.

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.

The 913 whiskey bar did not disappoint. They house an extremely deep selection of whiskeys, and provided great food at extremely reasonable prices.

My husband and I were looking forward to a good dinner and some great drinks and the overall experience was underwhelming. We arrived 10 minutes early for our 7 pm reservation. We were told that the table where they planned to seat us was still occupied since we were early. There were a couple of empty tables at the time, but I didn’t put too much stock in this since I read that it can be busy. The bar was full and we didn’t want to push through people to order drinks so we just waited. We got to our table around 715 pm so the wait wasn’t unbearable. The attitudes of the wait staff was somewhat dismissive and they congregated several times to chat and never gave us an update about the wait. A hostess approached us and said she would have to move some tables so we could be seated. I ordered a cocktail and my husband ordered a custom flight. We immediately ordered our entrees also. One of the bourbons my husband chose wasn’t available and the waitress returned to ask my husband what he wanted instead. We waited about 15-20 minutes and our food arrived and we still had no drinks. They came 5-10 minutes later. The food was good and I felt affordable but not amazing. The service was just lacking overall. Glad we tried it out but most likely won’t be back.

Really enjoyed the experience overall. Highlights are the cocktails mixed by very competent and friendly bartenders. These guys know how to mix a drink. As far as the Southern Kitchen, I tried the Fried Chicken and Waffle. The chicken was soft and tender on the inside and crunchy and crisp on the outside and the waffle was marvelous and rich tasting, I recommend. Sadly, my husband had the brisket which was tough when it should have been tender soft. They have lots of other items to try and we will be back! One caution...parking is a nightmare - get there early or better yet Uber so you can enjoy an additional cocktail!

Brisket was tough and poor quality (could have been dollar store steak), macaroni and cheese had no seasoning and no sharpness of cheese, Brussels sprouts were great, collard greens were tender and a little sweet, fried pickles were thick wedges instead of small slices, so breading fell off, fried chicken was unseasoned but tender. Not impressed at all.

Seems as though we had cloak of invisibility powers as soon as we were seated. Unfortunately, we can’t comment on the food. Arrived on time for a 7:45 reservation. Table didn’t free up until about 8:10 - not a problem on a busy Saturday night. We ordered a drink at the bar and waited. When our table was finally ready, it was in plain view, not hidden away. We waited almost 20 minutes and were never approached once by a server. There were three servers who congregated at the bar with a friend, looking at pictures on a phone and appeared not to be on a hurry for anything. If one of them had said anything to us, we might have stayed, but we were clearly not worth their time. (Not that it should matter, but we were dressed nicely, well behaved and in our 50s). After 20 minutes (20!!) with no one approaching our table with even a water or drink order, we cut our losses and left. Ordered from local chain Chinese restaurant and brought back to our hotel. We were gracious to both restaurant and hotel bar, tipping them generously and enjoyed being acknowledged. As a bourbon drinker, my husband had looked forward to finding a place with the variety 913 has, but we will not be back. Too many great choices in Greensboro to waste time being ignored at this place.

Great food and drinks. The old fashioned was amazing. Food was brought out relatively fast and the service was fantastic. I would highly recommend this place. A little loud but nothing that would keep me from going back again.
