    AJ. & Miles provided attentive and timely service as always. The kitchen crew is always consistent in delivering our food selections from appetizers, salads and entries fresh and tasty. Miles mixed amazing drinks from my favorite 30 Years War to delightful, delicious and spicy number, dressed up with Thai peppers…Yerm! Always terrific here, like family and friends at Whiskey Barrel Lounge.

    The space is beautiful. When we checked in for our reservation, I asked if there might be a booth available. The host/our waiter said no and gave a rude, no eye contact snicker. First drink was great, second tasted off. Our server proceeded to put a straw in my drink (like bartenders do to taste sometimes) and said, it tastes fine to me. Thats not good service in my opinion. He begrudgingly offered a new drink. A few minutes later he proceeded to tell us he knows why the previous drink tasted off, and that it was indeed the establishments mistake. I was not impressed with any of our food for the price nor the service. We aren’t planning to go back.

    If you like whiskey and bourbon, this is a must try. However, they have a full bar so don't think you have to only be into whiskey to want to swing in for a drink. Top notch cocktails, great food and the service is nothing but top notch.

    The Whiskey Barrell Lounge was a great setting for double dating, my wife and I will be going back just as a couple, but as a group we had a blast, the noise level was comfortable while holding conversations. The food and drink were amazing, our group all sampled each others plates and as we all had different dishes, and each tasted amazing. The Whiskey selection and options are vast, and variable, there is plenty of open selection that are sure to appease anyone. This place is definitely on our short list of favorites on date night going forward.

    Me and the wife made reservations to nail the end of happy hour (ends at 5) and explained in my open table reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. The staff, had prepared us an eloquent table with a niche little sign, and prepared us chilled champagne to get our night started, and allowed us to sample both menus (lunch and dinner, happy hour) and impressed us both with an array of mixed drinks and whisky. I’d always been told that whisky and scotch should be drank at room temp, and that is a white lie I’m happy to ignore moving forward. The Tokyo old fashioned was superb, and the steak Al forno was hands down one of the best ribeyes I’ve ever had the pleasure of introducing to my palette. I cannot recommend this place enough, and while spendy, it’s romantic and dark atmosphere catered to my wife’s and I anniversary so specially I doubt I’ll ever have an experience similar.

    My cousin had the Cesar salad with salmon and husband had one with steak…. Very good. Then myself and cousins husband had pork belly also very good. For dessert crème Brulé., brownie with ice cream, tiramisu……..all very good as well. Drinks were great too. Husband got the one they light on fire to make it smoke abs that was ridiculously good. All in everything was “fire”. Definitely going back with many more friends.

    What a Wonderful experience!!! The hostess and wait staff were so impressive. They were constantly checking into our needs and asking how everything was tasting and if we were having a great time. The food was outstanding we had the Rib eye cooked to a PERFECT med rare and the pork belly was delicious. They have a large whiskey selection and full bar with an impressive liquor menu. This restaurant is an hour long drive from our home but we will definitely be back with friends.

    Went with my wife and another couple for my birthday. Was sat in crappy table by the kitchen door and was treated rudely when asked to be moved to one of the many empty tables. Wanted my $42 steak medium. Came out well done and tough. They replaced with a medium that was also tough. Our dinner was delayed waiting for my steak. Was told it was time for us to go as they needed table for another reservation. They did give a nice dessert for my birthday. The chocolate pudding is amazing.

    Our Waitress was funny and on top of things. Gave great recommendations and was attentive to our needs. My ribeye was medium when I ordered medium rare but it was still outstanding and I ate every bite! We also loved the bacon wrapped dates and the meatballs. You can count on us to eat there again soon! I had the sidecar specialty cocktail, loved it and highly recommend it!
