    The food was amazing. So that wasn’t an issue. But our server did not know the menu well. Our marmalade was missing from our brioche appetizer and when we asked where it was our server said it didn’t come with it when it clearly stated it on the menu. A little disappointing when you spend almost $300 for 2 people to eat.

    The experience was a bit off putting given they called us to cancel our reservation an hour before it was supposed to take place then they called us back saying it was back on. The service was a bit confused when we ordered the charcuterie. We were told there were 3 meats and 2 cheeses but it came with no cheese and some strange duck liver pate. Overall the service was stretched thin but the steak and food was excellent.

    The covid menu was wonderful the first 2 visits. I was disappointed in the options offered on the menu. I ordered an appetizer because I didn't dress up and go downtown to eat wild hog. Steaks priced high but I can appreciate the cost of good beef. Seemed like too many game items on the menu. The charcuterie board was awesome the first 2 visits. Very unhappy with this choice this time. The drinks were wonderful. Really impressed with the quality of the alcohol.

    We used to love it here, but they did away with the best wishes warmest regards drink and would not attempt to make it. They also no longer had the deviled eggs. Way overpriced for the drinks we did receive. We were so excited to bring family here and it was so disappointing.

    Amazing staff— Dan is the MAN! Chef Josh was a delight— super appreciate him coming out to speak about his food. Best charcuterie we’ve had, hand down. The tomahawk steak was cooked perfectly. This is truly a hidden gem in the heart of San Antonio. Also— the whiskey and cocktails were PHENOMENAL

    Whiskey and appetizers were great! Service was very good! Very disappointed in the $135 tomahawk steak! Tasted more like a roast than a steak. We eat a lot of beef and raise our own and steak was not good.

    You definitely go for the ambiance and the drinks. The food is nothing to write home about. I think that's why you can never find a menu online. The apps and food are way over priced. Drinks and service are excellent.

    The service was terrible and ruined our night. We loved the food and drinks, but we had terrible service. Our appetizer never arrived and then the waiter lied about it. We were never offered the dessert others were offered and the whole place seemed disorganized the entire time.

    We went expecting good whiskey and ok food. We left having had great whiskey with amazing food. I was bummed they ran out of the shrimp and grits but was so happy I chose the venison in its place. Wow! The venison with the sweet potato dumplings were so good. The pork rack was described as “a pork chop” but it was so much more…delicious. We had the goat cheese croquettes and the quail lollipops to start us off on the amazing food journey. David was a great waiter! We texted several friends to look for dates to join us to try more whiskey and the other food. We will be back.

    Good Evening Melissa. I am so disappointed to see this review. We take great pride in our scratch kitchen, and I've had nothing but raves and compliments tonight. I wish you would have asked for me so I could make things right. Our menu changes quite often based on what is fresh and local. We buy only premium Texas beef, and top notch ingredients. I would love the chance to speak with you and apologize in person. Please contact me at mrfey@maverickwhiskey Ken-GM 210-447-7010

    Greeting and service was great. Disappointed by food menu - very limited choices. The food we did order was good but everything was a little too salty for me. We had the cheese and charcuterie board which held pickles, pickled zucchini and baby pickles as well as pastrami, Gorgonzola cheese and a whiskey jam. And a few small slices of apple. Overall very salty and not enough other selection on the board to break up the saltiness. We had a ribeye and a NY strip steak , presentation was nice, both cooked to our desired doneness but my was over salted. We also ordered asparagus as a side with also was too salty in my opinion. The only main course options on the menu were steak or venison. There were no pasta, seafood, or vegetarian options which was disappointing, Since the menu online showed scallops as an option. The whiskey flight and drinks we ordered we good. The bartender/ server Tim was excellent! The biggest issue I had was that the female restroom smelled strongly of sewer smell. It was terrible.

    We were a little thrown by the tasting room on the first floor, but this actually is a restaurant. The menu rotates and only had red meat and pork on Christmas Eve, but the food was so amazing. We shared the beef shanks and all the sides. A prefect Christmas Eve dinner. Next time I would call beforehand to see what’s on the menu that day.

    Truly a special and unique experience! We ended up choosing to sit at the bar and we’re treated so well! The bartender, Todd, I think his name was told so many great stories about the history of the building, the drink called SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS, and multiple other interesting factoids about the building and distillery. He served us dinner also. Was a wonderful experience from start to finish! All the whiskeys offered there are made on site and the hybrid one they’ve got is the now my favorite! We even bought a bottle to bring home. Try this place, you won’t regret

    My husband and I went to Maverick Whiskey with no expectations…OpenTable just told us we could get a reservation and we decided to try it…and we were NOT disappointed! The bartender/manager/server/everything-extraordinaire Tim was spot on with drink recommendations and they were all amazing. The food was also fabulous (highly recommend the fried goat cheese, beet salad and pork belly grits…oh and the boozy dessert is also awesome). The chef even came out to say hi. We will definitely be going there again!

    Ambiance is stale, very brightly lit, and awkwardly quiet without even background music. The waitress pretended they were out of the sirloin to try and upswell us on the $125 bone in steak when we saw the table after us order several. The steaks they did serve us were poor quality and covered in butter.

    Drinks, appetizer, entree and dessert were outstanding! The ribeye is to die for! The only issue is one which sadly is common - while encouraged to order the entree at the same time as our appetizer, the entree came out on top of the appetizer, crowding the table and not allowing us to enjoy it and finish our drinks. We should have held off ordering until we were into the appetizer, but didn't. However, we didn't think the wait staff would not be observant and put the entree order in at the same time as the appetizer. Otherwise, great experience! Thanks Ken and Amy for the hospitality! Will definitely be back again soon.
