This is one of the best restaurants in Aiken. The food, drinks, and atmosphere are excellent. We typically get the burger, an Old Fashioned-Old Fashioned, and the daily devil.

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.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Aiken, or anywhere for that matter. I can't imagine having a bad meal here. The drinks are incredible, and you can't beat their whiskey selection.

We've been to WA multiple times, but the service this time put the meal over the top. Our server was very accommodating to us and our LO, and it really set the tone for an enjoyable, delicious meal with fast, attentive service. Cemented WA as a go-to with the babe!

Great atmosphere and unique food. A bit snug and can get noisy, but fun for groups. Drinks can be pricey, but some specials are reasonable. A great local place.

Love the location and the food can’t be beat. It’s the best burger I’ve ever had and the Burger, Bourbon and Beer special is worth making a reservation for a week ahead of time.

I have never in my life had the kind of service and food quality and I’ve eaten at places that also don’t have Michelin stars.

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
