First time At Whiskey Alley. Truly enjoyed the experience. Menu was unique (blanquette de veau stew to a gourmet grilled cheese to great burgers). Cocktail drink menu was great. I lived my Wlaluigi snd my husband loved his Smoked Old Fashioned. Bar had a cool atmosphere as did restaurant. Enjoyed it. We will be back

Amazing food, as always. We make sure to save room for dessert because they never disappoint and the sticky date cake was no exception. You can’t go wrong with the Cantonese green beans!

Beautiful evening on the back patio. Jessica was a spectacular server and very knowledgeable. Everything we ordered was delicious - charcuterie and cheese boards, deviled eggs, heirloom tomato burrata, flank steak. Loved how the employees worked together, everyone was checking on us, making sure we were happy. We will be back!

Second experience of dinner here. Drinks (house Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and some mixed drinks) were tasty, appetizers and entrees were all very pleasing. We dined on the outside which was just right. Wait staff was prompt, appropriate and excellent. Highly recommended.

Had great seating and service and staff were very nice and personable. Food was excellent. Had a wish for some protein to add to salads but wasn’t an option. A bit disappointing as we have dietary restrictions on the group and no protein choices limited the menu options for this people. Other than that we had an enjoyable experience.

We were seated outside in the covered area, which was pretty nice. The menu is new….but, the Brussel Sprouts are still on it!! We started with those and they are still delicious!! I realize prices are going up, but I don’t drink a lot of beer or whiskey….so wine is my preference. The house wines are ridiculously high as well as the bottled wines. Certainly a deterrent for me. Other items on the menu were not available “a la carte”, so we ordered several meats & cheeses. The cheese was really good….meats not so great….extremely expensive meal considering what we ordered. We won’t be back….

Brought my teenage son in to try the burgers everyone was raving about. Nothing special and won’t be ordering a burger ever again. I can get a better burger at Wendy’s Fast Food. Bun was hard, burger was over cooked and had no taste and fries were cold. Totally not what I expected based on your Facebook pages with this good luscious burger.

I’m guessing they have a lack of wait staff, as everything took forever and we never got drink refills or offered desert or actually saw our waiter except to order and the bill. The food was great but not as good as it was a couple of months ago. Still will go back hopefully at a less busier time.

Hi Eric, My name is Jess and I'm with the front of house staff with Whiskey Alley. I see that you enjoyed your food but we never want our customers to leave without feeling that they had a great experience with us. It seems like we did not hit the mark at all on your last visit and I'd like to invite you back for another dinner so we can really show you the true Whiskey Alley experience. I will be forwarding along my contact details, and look forward to talking to you soon.

I was in from out of town visiting my family. I had two amazing nights at Whiskey Alley! Love your smoked whiskey both nights! Burger+beer+whiskey=$10 was amazing and a brilliant idea! Short ribs were also amazing! Each night I had the Barada! You knocked both nights out of the park! Anthony was our bartender the first night. We loved him. Second visit, we had a great guy with a beard! Looking forward to my next visit!

Heather, the mystery bearded man is none other than Moose! You caught him on a rare night of him working, so count yourself lucky. We are so glad to hear that you had a wonderful time visiting your family and honored to be a part of your family memories. Next time you are in town, be sure to see us again.

We visited for the 1st time brought on by your smoking old fashioned promotion. My husband loves bourbon so he was very impressed with the bourbon menu. We both enjoyed the charcuterie board. Fish and chips was tasty however it was overpriced for the portion size.

Our server was wonderful and the ambiance was nice.

Had Sunday Brunch at Whiskey Alley. Nice, laid back ambience - we both had eggs benedict with breakfast potatoes, dish was done well. Our server, sorry, forgot her name was pleasant and efficient. Cannot think of any negatives. Helpful to have a reservation, it can get busy and is not a large place. Nice outdoor seating.

Our reservation wasn’t honored. We were shuffled around when we got there. Cheese plate took 45 minutes, and ritz crackers were served instead of bread. Steak was terrible cut and burnt. Dinner took 2 hours. Waiter tried to make things right but the overall experience was 👎🏻

Even with the reservation our table wasn’t ready and once seated it took 20 minutes to get a server. The restaurant staff was very disorganized. The hostess was a young girl who clearly had no idea what she was doing.
