Our first time trying Ripplewood Whiskey and Craft, and perhaps we didn't order the best items from the menu or the cuisine just doesn't fit our tastes. But the service was excellent - a fun atmosphere, and attentive wait staff.

The octopus appetizer was awesome, and the wings were good too. Our entrees had flavor profiles that we didn't enjoy - but again, it could be a matter of personal taste! I'd recommend trying Ripplewood at least once. The whiskey/scotch/bourbon offerings were broad, but very high end options did not seem to be stocked. The scotch flight was a good choice.

We'll give it another go in the future!

Our food was nice. Drinks are excellent. Our waitress was lovely but overworked. The kitchen is incredibly slow getting food out.

Ripplewood is one of my favorite restaurants in Ardmore. The food is always sensational. I love ordering a bunch of small plates and sharing with friends. Also, it is a wonderful place to go for brunch. They have rethought a bunch of classics and they also have an excellent drink selection.

Excellent service. Erica our server was very knowledgeable, energetic and friendly.
Food was not as good as expected, but overall the experience was fun.
Cocktails were nice ( interesting cocktail menu).
Vegetarians can find several small plate options.
Upstairs seating area can be VERY noisy on a weekend evening.

The service was so slow. The bartender told us to order bloody Mary’s if we wanted to get our drinks quickly. I also had to hunt down our waiter for our check and also had to hunt them down to run our tab.

Good waitstaff but wasn’t offered Happy Hour specials. Crowded, noisy as a local establishment would be on any Friday. A half price drink would have softened the blow to my wallet as the food is on the pricey side. J

This was our first time here. What a great experience! The service was spot on! I started with their whiskey sour. It was delicious. The ambience was nice. It was happy hour but the music was enjoyable and it wasn’t too loud so we could still hear each other. Our meal started with the savory mushroom soup. Outstanding presentation and oh so good. Next we had the wings. Again great presentation and delicious. We topped it off with the braised short ribs and filet mignon. Both to die for! So tender and delicious! We will be returning! Planing to try the brunch this Sunday! Thanks for the great experience Ripplewood!

Met my daughter for dinner, we each had a porch light drink, OMG must have another! We shared Ripp fries, Mac & cheese, & a Caesar salad. Everything was delicious, the fries are the best in the area and since we do not like spicy they removed the jalapeños from both the fries & Mac & cheese. Salad was perfect as well. We will be back soon! Highly recommend for the great food, friendly staff, and proficient bartenders.

Being upstairs on what seemed like a slow day, made the service a bit slow (guessing the stair climb is a hassle for the servers?). Two of us had French toast which was amazing, two of us had burgers that were good (although the serving of fries was minuscule). I had avocado toast that was hard as a rock and lacking avocado. That being said, the cocktails were good, background music was brunch appropriate and the price was right. We’ll chalk it up to being first-timers, and will try it again but maybe not brunch.

Food was great. My only complaint is that they have “Whiskey” in their name but their drink menu and top shelf Whiskeys are lacking. Plus when u are selling $15 manhattans without top shelf booze u might want to put them in something larger than a 3 oz mini martini glass.

This was my first experienace at Ripplewood as it was highly recommended by family members and I was not disappointed. My son and I shared 4 small plates for dinner and all of them were delicious and filling. We did not try a cocktail but they all looked very appealing. Instead we sampled the beer and cider choices and were not disappointed with our selections. This was a very enjoyable experience and we will return again.
