I'll start with what I liked, namely the flavor of the deviled eggs, the unusual decor, the range of interesting options on the menu and the house-made kettle chips. What I wasn't so happy with was the temperature in the restaurant (it was freezing and there were people sitting in coats and shivering). Also the mac 'n cheese and pork soup were lukewarm and our server did not come by to check, there was no warm water in the toilets, and the juice drinks were 90% ice cubes. I think with a few small tweaks this would be somewhere I'd be happy to give another chance.
Great service. Great drinks.
Upon walking in all seemed good... ambiance; until we were escorted to our table which was dirty. We were there for bunch so we were not sure why the first two tables were dirty. The hostess seemed to be spaced out and didn’t care about the dirty tables. She never notified anyone and/or had them cleaned, she just sat the next customers and moved on. However, the waiter was amazing and very attentive. The food was okay... the potatoes were not fully cook and the waffle had a weird texture.
Too expensive. Food is delicious but small servings for the price.
Wonderful food and service! The restaurant was very noisy but when we inquired about a quieter spot they gave us the side room and turned down the music. As I had my parents in their 70s with me this was greatly appreciated.
The whiskey cake is fantastic. Enjoy a flight of whiskey and a bite of whiskey cake.
My husband and I made a reservation here for our date night dinner. Our main objective was to try the Whiskey Cake, but everything was equally delicious! We started out with Fried Green Tomatoes which were not overly battered and not salty. Drinks: My Moscow Mule was nice and strong with fresh ginger. My husband ordered a Red Sangria that had a wonderful blend of fruits. Entree: I ordered the Turkey burger(tomato, lettuce, mayo, avocado, fontina cheese, cranberry chutney, wheat bun) that was moist & flavorful, & that came with Adult Macaroni & Cheese, and homemade Potato Chips. I also ordered hand cut fries that complimented the Turkey Burger nicely. My husband ordered the well seasoned HOLMES “FARM BIRD”-half spit-roasted chicken, sautéed spinach, mustard vinaigrette, gremolata. Dessert: Whiskey Cake(toffee torte, bourbon anglaise, spiced pecans, whipped cream)warm and yummy. We also ordered a Cheesecake filled Sopapilla covered with toasted almonds and drizzled with honey..Beautiful! Our server John was knowledgeable, entertaining, and on-time with refilling our drinks. We are looking forward to return for brunch.
Great mussels and goat cheese!!!
You’ll enjoy the food and service.
Disappointed on reservation standpoint for party of 3. Arrived 15 mins prior (7:15) to reservation time (7:30) and was marked as arrived. Not many other guests there waiting for tables. Everyone mostly told the wait would be 20-25 mins. We were seated 15 mins after our reservation time at 7:45. So we waited 30 mins. No point in making a reservation at this restaurant as they don’t abide by them. Server was good. This is the second time I have been to this restaurant where I have ordered a drink as soon as the server has come by. The drink came out after our food arrived at the table. Good drink but no point in ordering a second one and waiting forever for it. Took 25 mins from time of order to receive a drink with alcohol. Food is good. The whiskey cake is exceptional.
Food was good and looked like the picture. Only downside was whiskey feature (ice ball) not available.
Excellent dinner and drinks at one of our favorite restaurants in the area. We love the farm to table concept and this one is the best.
Incredible find in our visit to Texas! Flavors for Duck wings. Burger and whiskey cake were incredible. Can’t wait to return!!
Great food and drinks. Waiter was meh, but overall we enjoyed it.
food was great and the cake is off the chart was really impressed by being able to reserve a table and walk right in and sit down and not have to wait even though you were very busy
Overall excellent food. We especially loved the Whiskey Cake for dessert!
I love everything about this place!
Gastro pub type experience with incredible alchohol selection and friendly service.
Really enjoy the food here. Always something new worth trying. Great atmosphere.
Great service and adult beverages.
My husband, the carnavore, needed a larger meat dish than offered on the menu. Food ordered was delicious! Interesting note: on the table was a small note indicating the local providers and I was disappointed in how few Houston (1) suppliers were utilized. Little pricey for smaller portions, but very tasty dinner.
Been there multiple times, first time I have had issues with the food not tasting right.
Amazing food. Great service. First time here and it was awesome.
Well-executed modern American cuisine. Great selection of gluten-free options for those avoiding wheat.
Fantastic night. Great food and service. Thanks for a wonderful evening. Highly recommend.
We love the restaurant's ambience and the servers are friendly and very competent. The whiskey cake is outstanding, as are the whiskey options themselves. Food is oversalted, though - very disappointed in the Eggs Benedict variant they had; the ham was inedible.
Excellent food and selection. Of course, great whiskey selection.
Fabulous with great servi
More bar drink selection would be nice
Good drinks, slow service.
My husband and I had been wanting to try this place out. We finally got a chance to get away from the kids for a weekend which made it the perfect time to go.
Make reservations. We did and we were glad that we did. We came in at 6:30 on a Friday evening. It was already busy but was filling up quickly. We arrived on time and were seated immediately. I was impressed that they had a “reserved” sign on our table!
Looking over the menu, we decided to start off with the fried green tomatoes and the cheese board. We also sampled the Whiskey flight. The food was wonderful and the Whiskey selections were fantastic. We enjoyed the sausage and the jerky on the cheese board so much, we ordered another one!
The people watching was fun. Our service was a little slow at times, but everyone working seemed to be moving at a brisk pace. This place was busy. I enjoyed the ambience and will definitely be back to try brunch!
Thanks Whiskey Cake! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Good food. Server Ryan was great. Offered excellent suggestions and knew what he was talking about. Will try again.
Treat for a visiting friend he loved it
Great food and ambiance for our date night.
We love the food, ambience & it’s close to where we live. Great place!
Great atmosphere, amazing local based food combinations. Perfect whiskey selection, amazing service!
Great food, out of the ordinary. Very friendly service.
Great ambience. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Manager stopped and introduced himself, always appreciated. Fried green tomatoes a must have. The redfish was way over cooked and very dry, needed seasoning. This was my first visit for lunch, L will give it another shot.
Sides & drinks are great for foodies with a homestyle side. Love this place but at times service is on the slow side and bathroom isn't anything to welcome a lady to, but overall it's a great place to add to your list of choices. Try their fried green tomatoes and adult Mac -- it will make up for service & shared bathroom.
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing value. I'll definitely will be back soon!
This is only the second time I have been here. I really enjoy it, I love the atmosphere have enjoyed the food worh the wait. Would love to go for brunch one weekend. Fun place.
Always a hit, this visit was a rare exception. Out of the first 3 things we ordered they had none of it. It was a Monday which I attributed this to as it was beer as well as food. The server was a young man I’ve seen there many times but had never had as my own. His style is not my taste. The food we did order did not come as impressive in appearance as usual.
The caramels by the door almost made up for it all. :)
