This was our second time dining in and both times the service was great. The staff all speak and interact among you outside of just taking your order. The food tastes great and the portions are more than enough. Great atmosphere!

We love to bring people that have never tried Whiskey Alley to dine with us. The menu changes constantly, but there's always a few favorites you can always get, like their burger or the fish and chips for example. The beer and wine selection is great and the mixologist knows what they're doing with the cocktails. The atmosphere is wonderful. A belt driven ceiling fan system inside is fun to watch and the professional photos on the wall make a great addition to the all wood interior. We keep coming back again and again!

Last minute plan to go out. Easy to get reservation. Food and service was very good. Had the fish and chip. Generous portion and very good. Enough to share, for sure.

Always have good meals here.

The food and service were outstanding! We had the crispy brussel sprouts appetizer, the grilled chicken gnocchi and the fish and chips entrees with creme brule for dessert and everything was delicious! Heather was our server and she was amazing! Highly recommended!

Love this place! I ordered the chicken liver pate and it was great. I also ordered the beet and goat cheese salad which is one of my favorites. I tasted my friends order of Brussels sprouts and I wanted to rip the bowl right off her hands. It was that good and huge portion. The other two friends ordered the fish and chips. Huge huge piece of fish that they both devoured. The French fries were also fabulous. We’ll be back!

We sat down and reviewed the menu and the apps we decided on were both out. The server didn’t inform us. After that, we finished our drinks and left. Wasn’t a great experience. Went to Manuel’s in North Augusta instead.

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.
