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.

Delicious food! Great bar selections! Whiskey Cake has an excellent menu. We have had a wonderful brunch there as well as a great dinner. You MUST have the whiskey cake for dessert!

Alexander was an excellent waiter. He listened to my special request and followed up with the food manager managing the kitchen to ensure my entree was prepared to my very specific request. One of the only waiters/waitresses that does the “leg-work” follow up necessary to ensure the final product from the kitchen meets the customers specifications.

The dinner was amazing until I got a chicken bone in my sandwich then the manager came over and took care of everything she was amazing at explaining why this could have happened and then she told me our meal was on her with desert. Our little waiter was amazing as well. Kaiden did a great job.

Excellent attentive staff. Even met the chef and chatted with him for 10 min. Ordered the quinoa steak bowl. Steak slices were on point. Quinoa salad was good but maybe too much olive oil for my taste. Thus the 4 star on food.

Pricing was reasonable. Ambience was 5 star. Casual and industrial hipster decor .

We had to wait at the entry until our friends come. I understand the reason but during COVID time they should make exception especially we wouldn’t go to restaurant we won’t sit on their outdoor. The local board was served on a tray just like the kids menu tray. Much less cheese options than what they had before. The steak we asked medium we got it well done. The other steak made it cold.

The outdoor patio was perfect for a late October social hour. Service was amazing, the waitstaff is very kind and they recommend excellent choices. The Board was our favorite shareable snack. It had a delicious array of meats, cheeses, and spreads.

Definitely get one of the amazing adult beverages (personal favorite is Guava Gimlet). Yes their drinks are small and higher priced than most family restaurants but it is worth it. This place to me is more adult ambiance not really a place I would take my whole family out to eat. Great place for after work meetings and friend gatherings. Also get a slice of Whiskey cake!!! It is the perfect blend of spices and sweet!

The food was great, but the service was excellent. Hailey our waitress really seemed natural about taking care of us, explaining things and making sure we had everything we needed. She just made our experience at whiskey cake much better than anticipated.

We had a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes. That is my only complaint. Food was great, service was good. It’s a little darker and we were sat at a high top table in the bar area, even though other tables appeared to be available.

Love the food. The vibes are never disappointing. As soon as I was seated I ordered my child's food and waiting for a friend to arrive and then later ordered ours. The kid's meal did not even arrive until about 15min. after we had received ours. Something fell through the cracks and I was super disappointed with that.

I made a reservation. I waited at the front door for a good 10-15 min waiting on a staff person to acknowledge us all waiting to be seated. We finally went up to the bar to see if anyone was seating tables. A lady finally approached us and sat us at a table. Our waiter was very slow overall and it took forever to get our check to pay out. The food was very good but the service was terrible.

Had a reservation but had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated. Hostesses were impossible to get to because they were chatting non-stop to guests about nothing.

Food was very average. Steak was burned even though it was medium rare. Just tasted burnt. Told the server and then was given a lecture about how they use a mesquite grill and how it works.

A manager or someone finally brought me another steak, placed it in front of me and never even said a word or acknowledged me. Like a robot.

The drinks were great. Service was slow though

Almost every time we go we have some sort of issue with the hosts. They either sit people without reservations before us or make us wait longer than other people. One time we asked why and host said oh your table has been readyđŸ€” we forgot! I’ve worked at a restaurant before so I can tell what’s out of hosts’ control and what is just plain laziness. I believe they get no training because maybe management believes this is a no brainer type job. But, they obviously need it because it’s surprising when they actually get it right.
