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 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!!

I was greeted promptly first by a female server than by a male server. I ordered chicken and waffles with eggs over medium but they came undercooked between SU and OE. I love crispy waffles but it was too soft for me. I ordered a mimosa. I finished my drink and I was never asked for another drink. The food got delivered by someone else and the drink too. So it was already 4 different people at my table. When my food got delivered Server came to check once I had just taken the first bite so I said everything was fine. She never came back . I finished my food and I got tired of waiting is been probably over half an hour while I was eating that she never came back to check on me and I had to wave the 2nd server if I could order dessert and he took my order . After I ordered she delivered my dessert I didn’t like it but she didn’t ask. It was the apple pie. I ask for a box and she didn’t box it for me or offered to box it up for me(like Stafford location).I have visit Whiskey cake Stafford and the service and food have been wonderful at all my previous visits. It is a great concept and a wonderful restaurant but this location needs improvement. 1st time at this location 6 times at Stafford.

We’ve been to this location quite a few times in the last few years. It’s always been great. Our last visit was uncharacteristically disappointing. We found hair in our food but had waited so long to receive it, which isn’t like Whiskey Cake, we just set the entree aside and ignored it. The appetizer ordered was cold when we received it after being seated for 40 minutes. We couldn’t figure out if our waitress was there to socialize or serve. It took her 30 minutes to get our drink orders out to us, we had to ask for several items more than twice, the food was subpar, and we wouldn’t have tipped if possible. We took family there for the first time and they won’t be returning back. The kids pancakes were great as were the jalapeño biscuits & gravy, but the other three entrees were not worth it. We won’t be returning based on service alone. We’ve given them top ratings before so not sure what’s happened.
