Awesome as usual! The vegan/vegetarian options were incredible. I had the roasted cauliflower that had a nice moroccan vibe to it. The roasted sprouts were delicious too and the featured Bonafied Lovin' specialty cocktail infused with cherrywood smoke was devine.

I had heard how good the food was at Whiskey Alley! Our food sampling did not disappoint. My friend and I shared 3 small plates,and found that amount just perfect. We had both ordered the toast with a goat cheese spread...excellent. Then we split a smoked salmon salad and a roasted cauliflower and mushroom assortment sitting on a bed of creamy grits! All a delicious combination for the palate.
We each had 2 glasses of very good wines of our choice. Because it was my birthday,I was brought a wonderful dessert to share...a hot moist oat and honey cake. Yum!

I highly recommend Whiskey Alley! Enjoy!

The best burgers in Aiken. Until you've had a burger with pimento cheese and bacon jam you haven't lived!

Very enjoyable evening. Everything about it was outstanding. Only problem I experienced was noise level. But I wear hearing aids that “supposedly” adjust automatically. Mine did not. Not unpleasant communication and that was quickly voted down by excellence of all things other. Will go again and recommend highly.

Wonderful food. We had the Royal with cheese and the fish and chips. Some of the best food I have eaten. Easy laid back atmosphere. Not a huge beer selection, bit the whiskey/bourbon selection is massive. We will be back for sure. Be sure to make a reservation. Customers were going elsewhere due to the crowd/wait.

My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at the Whiskey Alley. The service was prompt and professional and the food was delicious. We wondered why this restaurant always seemed so busy. Now we know. We will certainly return for another meal in the near future.

Glad we used Open Table for a reservation. Our waiter--Moose--attentive and helpful with the menu. His recommendations were spot on.

Responded on January 4, 2020

Grant, As we do fill up pretty quickly, making a reservation on Opentable is always our recommendation. We are truly lucky to have Moose on our team and glad he was able to provide a great dinning experience. Is there anything that you would have liked to have seen or wanted that would have elevated your dinner with us?

First time for going to brunch at Whiskey Alley. All in all a good experience, but did not realize they closed at 2:00! Would not have made a 1:30 reservation since they turned up all of the chairs and stools and mopped the floor while we were eating. Other than that we always enjoy the food selections and service.

We’ve been meeting here for the hamburger specials on a monthly basis now for quite some time. Excellent food and ambiance, inside or outdoors. A friend had the fish & chips and said they were excellent. I don’t give many 5-star reviews, but this is definitely 4.5+.
