I am somewhat of a "regular" at Whiskey Alley as I love the ambience and the ability to enjoy a meal in a nice outdoor setting when the weather cooperates. The food is above average and the selection varied!

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+.

We went to Sunday brunch at Whiskey Alley, and we were looking forward to an amazing selection of whiskeys, and delicious food. It was our first time there. We weren't blown away by the experience, so maybe our expectations were too high. I loved my shrimp and grits, especially the flavor of the andouille sausage, but I did not expect the shrimp to still have their tails. It's not a big deal, but that may turn off other patrons. I had a 2-oz pour of Angel's Envy, which isn't a rare Bourbon to find, but fine nonetheless. My friend had the basic breakfast, and said the eggs, bacon, and potatoes were very good.

We are so glad to hear that y'all enjoyed your meals! We are continually striving to better our guest's experience and thank you for your feedback, which is being pasted along to our chefs. In regards to your drinks, Angel's Envy was a great choice. If you are looking for something that's not of your run of the mill variety, simply ask your sever for a recommendation, we have well over 60 kinds. If there's one thing we pride ourselves on, it's our whiskey list. Hope to see y'all back soon!

I have always loved going to Whiskey Alley and being catered to by Chunky at the bar since I moved to Aiken. However, I stopped going do to the attitude of the girl bartender that appeared last Spring. But since I have a new boyfriend we decided to go and try the outside bar. I did not tell my boyfriend of my past experience until he told me that the girl bar tender inside the bar was very rude to him and didn’t even ask him if he wanted to have a drink. Then Chunky warmly welcomed him and offered a drink. I consider myself a good tipper and would definitely tip more than 20% if your women bartenders were as HALF as nice as Chunky. What is it with the attitude and lack of service of your women bar tenders?? I used to be a regular
