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.

The ambience is nice. The bar is really nice with hundred of whiskys to choose from. We went for brunch and my waffle was dense, my eggs were tough. My mimosa was good and my husbands manhattan was good as well. The service is always good.

I was really excited to introduce my husband to this restaurant, we got a babysitter and I hyped him up on how great the food and ambiance was. Well, I scheduled this reservation over a month in advance and we were originally seated in a side section of the restaurant that was 80% full of families with children five years of age and younger. There were more children than adults, with balloons for a birthday party. It was the worst possible seating location, especially since I booked so far in advance. I requested she seat us elsewhere, perhaps in the empty booth we had passed up in the main area. It took a few minutes, but they arranged for that to happen and we were seated in the booth. Needless to say, my husband was not impressed with the first impression, but liked the food, so overall good experience. The lack of service up front was something we figured you should be aware of, perhaps closing that whole room off for the child’s party would have been a better practice so that your other diners had a better valentines dinner experience.

My wife and I spent the evening of Valentine's Day at Whiskey Cake. While it was crowded, we made the reservation ahead of time and enjoyed a nice corner booth. We had the special old fashioned cocktail that evening as well as the sirloin steak with shrimp and it was spectacular. Goat cheese fondue was our appetizer and it was wonderful. Service could have been a little better but we give a pass for the busyness the Valentine's Day crowd brought as it's not the typical Whiskey Cake experience.

Always a favorite for breakfast/brunch. It does get a little loud due to structural acoustics but not intolerable by any means. Staff seems to have a high turn over rate here, however, the servers were polite and efficient.

The food is always exceptional! Service was very professional. The atmosphere is wonderful and warm. Because it is a loud place I would encourage y’all to change the music genre to something that either fits the atmosphere like 40’s Frank Sinatra like or soft jazz. It would add to what you have created. Always grateful to go to Whiskey Cake!

We have been here several times. The food, at least everything I have ever tried, is excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive. My only criticism is price. The food is priced appropriately so no complaint there. However, the drinks are WAY over priced. For example, I ordered a Sazerac which couldn't have had more than 2-3 oz of liquid in the straight-up serving, and it was $12! I know ... I ordered it anyway but never again. I can go to $10 for a top-shelf mixed drink but beyond that is crazy, and that includes wines that are that high for a glass. Restaurants need to increase their food costs a bit and lower their bar prices or the business will slowly die.

The food was ok but not worth the pricing. The service was horrible. We would see our server maybe like every 30 mins and we were there for almost 2 hours. We had to ask other servers for things because our server wasn’t attentive. The drink wasn’t the greatest, for the price it was more juices than alcohol. It a recommended place for me. Maybe I will give them a chance one day but I will have to think about that.

We love this spot for date night, game watching at the bar, and bringing out of town guests for an out of the ordinary dining experience. We always sit at the bar, and the staff is incredible. Try to leave room for the whisky cake if it’s a special occasion.

Ye constraineth the success of thy waitstaff. Lo, let me count the ways:

1. No substitutes for chips/fries on your Turkey Burger. Really? Worse: when asked to then just leave off the chips/fries, your waitstaff informed that they can’t do that. And do they brought my turkey burger with chips that they couldn’t substitute or leave off.

2. “Whiskey” Cake Grill and not only is Irish Coffee (made with Irish Whiskey, right?) not only in your menu, your waitstaff informed that you did not offer Irish Coffee. Knowing better, we insisted and, lo a wonderful cup appeared.

3. No salt or pepper grinders (or shakers) in the dining room?

Set thy people free by setting them up for success.

Further, I sayeth not.

Service was a bit slow. They may have needed more servers. It took a while for our food ton one out. When we asked for salt, pepper and catsup, that also good a while and were all delivered separately. I also had to ask for refills on my iced tea because the waitress didn’t notice that my glass was empty.

I will be back because I like the food and have never had a problem with service in the past. I think it was more about them not having enough servers for the number of people.

We went in and were told a hour wait for a table, noticed several open tables so we decided to go. While in parking lot, pulled up Open Table app for alternative and saw whiskey cake listed and they had a reservation available in 15 min. I made it and we went back in! Seated in 10 min. Glad I looked at the app! I didn’t even know they took reservations!!
