Understand need to be creative fir outdoor seating. We were seated next to a trash bin of an adjacent establishment with employees constantly dumping trash. I usually enjoy Whiskey Alley, but this time it was a big miss

Sitting outside would have been ok if it was warmer out and they didn’t have the ceiling fans on. Also the chairs are not comfortable

By far the BEST BURGER i have EVER eaten. We went for the beer, bourbon, and burger. The watermelon gose was great as well as the buffalo trace shot. But the burger was amazing. We both got the pimento cheese on the burgers. The only regret I have is that i didn’t get the bacon jam on there as well. I will try it next time. Thanks for the great food, service, and experience.

EXELLENT food! Nice atmosphere and our server was very friendly. BUT the kitchen didn’t oblige our changes which consisted of my friend not wanting pickles on her burger and I wanted to substitute a side salad for my broccoli. So other than our orders being slightly wrong it was a great experience

Excellent! Vegan burger on menu was DELISH! And sooo many hand cut fries. Makes for happy vegans!! Which is REALLY hard to do at nearly all restaurants. The cocktails were so yummy! Our server was very polite and attentive. Will definitely be back as often as possible as we came from Lexington to Aiken just to try the vegan burger. It was worth the drive. 👍😋

Visiting from Raleigh. Good social distancing out side. Servers wearing mask. They must have been watching the rain because a miniute before the bottom dropped out they put down the side canvases. We never got wet. Great burger and half chicken. Charcuterie board was generous.

Was very disappointed in the food. The “whipped” potatoes were pureed potatoes and reminiscent of eating baby food. No other vegetable or dinner roll was provided. Menu left alot to be desired.

Celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary with two of our older children. Seating outside was very nice although could have used more decorations or plants or candles to improve ambience. I had the jumbo shrimp and spaghetti and was just average for $32! Did not even include a salad. My son had fish and chips which was good and my wife had swordfish which she enjoyed. Overall good experience and would probably come back sometime. Would recommend some improvements to decor and ambience and pricing should be appropriate for what you get. We enjoyed the trout dip with freshly sliced chips and grilled brussels sprouts. Waitress was very friendly and pleasant.
