Settled at our favorite table in the back. Menu had a variety of options for a group with a variety of tastes and dietary restrictions. Nice selection of beers on tap and wine selection. Food was excellent, as well as, the service!

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

Whiskey Alley
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 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.

Whiskey Alley
Responded on November 28, 2019

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!
