We're serving up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes & cocktails out of our 'from scratch only' kitchen and bar. Microwave? Never heard of it. We use slow-cooking methods on our live wood grill, smoker and spit because everything tastes better that way. And all this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in one of our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table or relax out on the porch.

On the edge of being great most visits, but always good. The appetizer took a very long time to come out and sure enough, our meal followed about 3 minutes later. I had the short ribs. I honestly felt like I was eating braised chuck roast. While it was good, it was not like short ribs I have had elsewhere or I've made at home. Presentation was lacking as it was just meat and sauce (no vegetables) with the noodles which were fantastic by the way!

My reserved table was ready and waiting when we arrived. Our waitress, Madison, was very attentive and fun. The food was delicious and fresh. The only drawback was the noise level which was very loud.

I have been here 3 previous times. Employees at the front desk that manage the seating are rude & always have something smart to say. Urgent need for basic customer service training for them. Waiters are phenomenal, food is great but there is an obvious lack of respect at the front desk for them. Hope they can fix it soon.

Great meal, as usual!!! Chef was so accommodating, they were out of the market fish, so we asked if we could have the salmon prepared and plated like the market fish....no problem, Chef was happy to do that for us!!! Thank you, it was delicious!!!!

I started out with a bourbon old-fashioned. Really do well making their drinks.
The food Portions are just about perfect. I’m glad I save room for dessert, because that whiskey cake is off the charts.

The wine pour was less than previous visits to Whiskey Cakes; normally service is great but was not during this dining experience.

I used this service to get a table for a large party and of course it wasn't ready on time. I feel like they scrambled together and put us in the enclosed patio, which was cold. They have some regular and unique menu options, but over priced. Definitely "No" Bang for Your Buck... Only thing I really liked about the place was the ambiance, vibe, and alcoholic drinks they have. Definitely an Awesome place to chill and have a drink!!!

As usual, Whiskey Cake was fabulous. We came because it is my son's favorite place to eat, and it was his birthday. We love the Whiskey/Scotch/Rye flights, and the food is always amazing. Our waiter, Tommy, was attentive without being over bearing. He treated our son to a complimentary Whiskey Cake as well! The only disappointment was finding out that my son's favorite item, the Banana Pancakes, is no longer on the brunch menu (which is why we went for dinner instead of Brunch). We look forward to going again in the future.

And OpenTable made it super easy to make a reservation (which definitely cut down on the waiting time), and change it if needed. Thank you!

We come to Whiskey Cake often for brunch and it is always busy but you kinda expect that. We had a 1pm appointment and arrived and checked in. We were seated by the hostess after a few minutes went to our table and took our masks off. About 2-3 minutes later a different hostess came and said we had to go with her this was not our table. She was very apologetic and we are pretty easy and so we obliged. The table was sat almost immediately with another family ( little to no cleaning for COVID protocol). We were told we would have the very next table. We then waited another 15 minutes till we walked up to the podium to inquire about our table and we were put at one of the high tables right by the podium ( I’m about 5 ft no way I could sit at that table) - when we said that would not work we were basically told it was not the hostess fault we were not sat that we were never on the list ( because we had already been sat) and so they basically just forgot about us. We were finally sat at a booth and spoke to the manager Hailey ( who was understanding about the situation) but it just kinda set the whole experience off on the wrong foot. I have eaten in restaurants all over the world and this is the first time I have ever been told I needed to leave my table ( that they sat me at) as it was not supposed to be mine. Food was outstanding, waiter was very good - it was right after the crazy Houston snow so we were expecting changes- just not the ones we got! COVID protocol was very very worrisome!

We made reservations for 8pm we were not seated until 9:15 after being told that it would be a 15 min wait. Our waiter was amazing. The seating would have been nice if it were not so cold. They should have closed the curtains to the big windows. The appetizers were amazing but the food was subpar for the price.

Our reservation was made for 715PM, we were not sat down to eat until almost 8PM.
Over booking of reservations? Seems like it or possibly poor management of walk-in patrons vs patrons with reservations. I'd expect reservations would be met in a more timely manor.

We just had a salad and hamburger. I thought that their starters menu looked interesting, but the entree menu lacked innovation. The Whiskey cake desert is quite good, but not much of a whiskey flavor.

Afternoon drink & nosh on the outdoor patio. Great to be sure of sitting outside due to a reservation. Whiskey sour was very strong. Regular Rose served instead of Bubbly. Deviled eggs were good. Arrosto Misto was good, especially the cashews and cauliflower.
