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.

I love the food here. This last time I came, the food seemed a little different. However, that will not keep me from coming back. Great ambience and always amazing service!

Food was good. Signature dessert was the best. Sides were good. Portions small negatively impacted value. Service was the biggest challenge. They were courteous but management came around and looked at the empty drinks and said/did nothing. Wait staff took drink order and didn’t bring half of what was ordered. Also soda were not refilled without repeatedly asking. Lastly the order was wrong. They did fix the issues and compt the side that was wrong. Would go back but only for the dessert and pressed coffee.

Food was very good chicken & waffles, and beef roast. Service was very good. Appetizers and cocktails very very good. Prices are moderate. Noise level is pretty high.

The front desk people got an attitude when I told them we had an Open Table reservation and tried to make us wait for an additional 35 minutes. When we said we were about to leave magically our reservation was OK. They said us next to a door on a cold Sunday and several staff members would leave that door open. That got old getting up and closing that door to the patio. The rest of the staff needs to have the same enthusiasm as the manager who was smiling (with a mask on) . The manager was friendly and accommodating, The rest of the staff was phoning it in. ....The FOOD was amazing. The French press coffee was delish and the appetizers were huge. You have to be hungry for this place. I love the food but the service needs some help.

I am a bit of a food snob and I have ZERO complaints! The food was some of the best I have had in the past couple of years. The Local Board was perfect (I would have liked a little more bread...but I am being greedy). The cheeses, meats etc were spot on. Not one person at our table of 5 spoke while eating...lots of grunts and mmmmmm’s though. This food is worthy of a visit from Guy Fieri and DDD.

Very friendly staff and great service. Food was excellent. Started with some roasted Brussel sprouts that were delicious. Finished off with their namesake “Whiskey Cake” topped with homemade whipped cream. Yummy!

I had the duck & it was fabulous. Lots of flavor & enjoyed the sweet potato purée and side too. The server asked me how I wanted it cooked and I chose to have mine served well done as I like a crispier duck and not a fan of pink duck. It was still very moist & not dry at all. Glad to know there was an option as I did know duck could be served pink. My daughter had the rotisserie chicken and avocado melt (which I tried) & it was tasty too. Never disappointed and this is one place I don’t always order my “usual” since I’m alway pleased with my meal. Only thing I’m sad about it that I didn’t save room for their signature and very delicious whiskey cake! Next time! 😃

It was ok. Last time the salad was awful. This time I got the salmon which I have had before. They must have changed something b/c it did not seem the same. Just blah food. The server then asked us to tip him and give more to someone who had had an accident in the server staff. I don't mind helping out, but didn't appreciate it since they had a GoFundME page already. Just seemed to be a bit weird. Not going back any time soon.

Hostesses when told we had reservations after 1 person was already seated 2 min prior told the rest of the party “well you can look around and try to find her.” The waiter kept forgetting to order our drinks and we waited way too long for our stuff due to him forgetting to put in the order. The staff was rude. When told they brought out the wrong wine they had an attitude. The ambiance & food was perfect. The staff was terrible.

lets start off with we come far to often to get treated the way we were treat by the bartender Female(Chris/Kris) on 01/19not sure of spelling,
We made a reservation on open table which did not get checked in for some reason but the host was very friendly more helpful then anyone. We ended up at the bar due to it was bit of a wait, my wife goes to the restroom to wash her hands. I am waiting at the bar of 4 guest including myself and wife makes 6, I was not greeted at all actually or told I will be right with you by Kris/Chris I wait at least 5 minutes before she comes up and says what can I get for you? No hi how are you I'm Kris/Chris just a what can I get for you. I then ask for menu because my wife was in the restroom and my phone had Died she said oh you can use the QR code i then said my phone is dead may I have a menu which I really shouldn't have had to ask but due to covid. SHe says back oh "sorry we don't have menus" I said okay I will wait for my wife she is in the restroom to use her phone. She says ok and walks off proceeding to help the other guest at the bar. My wife comes back ask what is wrong because I'm applaud by the service I received. We wait she comes back and says what can I get you today my wife says can we get waters, I come here too ofter to know that waters are brought to you during the hi are you process. My wife sensed the same attitude that I am here I dont want to serve you vibe. So my wife then calls the bar back over which he was friendly because she never came back after waters, for a drink then we closed out, in which Kris/Chris comes back with the check and says were you guys waiting on a table I simple state no were just moving to a table thank you.
Host then seats us with Javier which he was great we had no issues with him and he was new to the team no issues with the server and he was much busier then the bar staff. What was really disappointing most of not only did we receive mediocre service from a place like whis

Looked ahead at the menu to accommodate my vegan diet. I was disappointed upon arrival mostly everything was not available due to menu restrictions. I settled with the red fish. It was great but NOT what I wanted. Would have been nice to know ahead of arriving so I could have gone somewhere else or not eaten salad before I came since that's pretty much were my only choices.

Set the reservation for 8:15pm for a standard table not a high top. Not sure where the communications failed but we first got a high top and not a standard table. We able to fix that issue when a standard table became available but still a slight inconvenience. Overall experience was good.

First time to Whiskey cakes and I'm not disappointed at all! Beautiful atmosphere with plenty of interior decoration that will feel like a cabin in the woods. I left like I was on a mini vacation. We ordered the local goat cheese fondue appetizer with was very rich in taste. Our main course was the rotisserie farm bird, it was so filling that we were able to share a meal. The meat was roasted wonderfully that I devoured the dish after it was served. Lastly, we got a free Whiskey Cake for my friends birthday, sadly due to covid there wasn't a song for celebration but regardless we were happy for the free cake and wonderful service they provided. I felt so safe eating since social distancing was practiced. I would definitely go back!
