Our meal at Steak and Whiskey was DELICIOUS!! From the house bread to the crispy duck, not to mention the fantastic cocktails. And dessert- to die for! Our server, Clark, was a rock star and really added to a fabulous overall experience. S&W has a lovely outside seating area all set and ready to go.

We like S&W - and were there for a birthday celebration which was noted on the reservation. Unfortunately that wasn't acknowledged during the dinner by the server which was a little disappointing as I always think a little candle and treat on a birthday is fun. Also, was surprised by the charge of $7 for water which wasn't mentioned when they asked what type of water we wanted (still) - must be they are only offering bottled water these days. The night we were there was a weekend and you are advised that there is a table time limit so you need to be efficient with ordering and dining pace.

We will go back - as the food is good, drinks are creative and the server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.

Outdoor space was nice but the Patio needs umbrellas especially when that sun is shining bright. Cocktails were delicious and we really enjoyed the spinach dip, drumettes and wedge salad. The not so good...probably the most awful arancini I've ever had and a bland steak tartare. Time to take the arancini off the menu.

Overall had an excellent time here and would highly recommend. The whisky/bourbon selection is extensive and definitely interesting if you're into that sort of thing.

Food wise, we had the Steak&Cheese as well as the Shashuka. The steak&cheese was a hit, the right balance of meet, cheese, and onions. The shashuka was interesting, a little sweeter than we normally like, but still good.

We went during COVID and sat outside, overall, no complaints about how their handling the set-up there. It was a windy day, and you can totally feel it as the breeze cut right through The Strand. Again, overall, would go there again.

Dining after the rain and low pressure system moved by made for a cold outdoor experience, not their fault. Service was subpar, disorganized and thoughtless. Those conditions and a cold wife made for a less than spectacular experience.
Food was ok but not Grand enough to make up for inattentive service.
Could really use more heaters for up coming winter evenings

OMG - food was incredible - just phenomenal. Ahi poke room start, my wife had the sea bass, I had the New York (naked), and we had grilled asparagus on the side.

Just insanely excellent. The outdoor deck was incredible - beautiful and secure. One more heater would t have hurt. Service, like all things COVID, was slllloooowww. But, I was with my wife and she was enjoying her cocktail, so is there a better way to spend a Friday night?

The outdoor dining area is very nice and quant considering you're on the road. Our server was average at best. Tables around us that sat after us had drinks before we were asked what we wanted. The tuna tartar was very fishy and not good at all. The fillet was good. The steak frites were just ok, the fries were delicious (even though they arrived much later then the rest of our food) but the sauce was so peppery it took the taste of the steak away. They were out of the dessert that we were offered, that was a bummer. The drinks were delicious. Over all it was a pretty disappointing experience and to top it off we both got very sick a couple hours after we dined.

Went there for my husband’s bday. We had reservations for 7 and were seated immediately. Our server was amazing! Attentive, informative and turned my husband onto a new whiskey. Our steaks were cooked just right and very flavorful. I had a filet and her had a rib eye. I chose grilled asparagus as my side and it was very good. My husband enjoyed his Manhattans very much. We were not rushed but allowed to enjoy our time at Steak and Whiskey.

My one complaint is that the menu does not tell you that the steaks are heavily seasoned prior to cooking. The server also did not tell us this. I was disappointed in the taste of my filet mignon because the seasoning was too overpowering. This needs to be clarified on the menu and offered as an option only.

Nice night out, service was fantastic. Food was mediocre. The Burata was really good, the burger and the short rib not so much. The short rib was very fatty and it was alot of work, the burger was just average. Also thought the wine was way too expensive. May go back for another try

we ordered a Medium cooked New York Steak, and it came out Well done and dry.. I admit, we ate like a quarter of the steak before it bothered us (we were starving)... Yet, the manager was understanding enough to give us 1/2 off the price of the steak.

Overall a very memorable experience. We sat outside, it was fairly quiet, at 5:30 pm. We caught the last 1/2 of Happy Hour and enjoyed a dozen great Oysters. Fresh and flavorful! We also had Shishito peppers, and of course, an Old Fashioned and a Beer. The Old Fashioned was very good, although we were surprised it was served with chunks of ice as opposed to one large cube or sphere. We had the scallops and the short ribs. Both were outstanding. Love this restaurant, please support them as much as possible!

My family and I were visiting from out of town and celebrated my in laws birthday at the restaurant. It did not disappoint. We had great service and the food was amazing. My in-laws raved about the surf and turf they said, “ it was the best lobster they have ever had.” Everything that was ordered tasted amazing.

Glad to see this outstanding restaurant is back. And happily surprised to state that it is even better than before. As one who's gone vegetarian, the number of options for me is much greater with the revised menu. All dishes were great, but special recommendation here for the mushroom risotto small plate and eggplant meatballs. Outdoor seating is great. Bartenders remain top notch. Highly recommended.
