We went to Whiskey Cake to celebrate our daughters birthday with some of her friends. Food was good, I liked my pork brisket with grits. The whiskey cake was amazing for dessert. The waitress was on top of us and very responsive. Overall a very good experience.

I eat here weekly. For some reason, the food took an extra long time to be delivered. No explanation- just busy. The they had the same number of customers as other Friday nights at the same time.

This place was a complete miss on their part. Terrible service and the food was not the best. For the price it was not worth it.

We originally were planning for a party of 7 but it ended up being a party of 3. The 1st server (female) didn't get her name and honestly I don't think she told us her name, but she had on a see through t-shirt where we could see her nipples and she never came back to take our drink orders :-(
Thank goodness for a young lady (server) named Vickie, she saved the day. She came to our table and we moved to a smaller which was great and everything was good from that point on.
We ordered the fried green tomatoes = delicious
We ordered the corn dogs = delicious
We ordered the deviled eggs = didn't know there was corn in this dish (can't have corn) but otherwise = delicious
We ordered a hamburger = delicious
We ordered short ribs w/mac & cheese = (delicious (especially the mac & cheese)
I enjoyed the Chardonnay wine on tap.
To top it over the Whiskey Cake was absolutely delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

We usually have wonderful service. This time out server was not attentive and didn’t check on us except one time after we finished eating.
Other servers dropped our food.
We wanted ground pepper on our salad. Not one server passed by for us to ask.
We needed extra sauce for our fried green tomatoes. Again, no one checked on us until after we finished everything.
We wanted ketchup for my husbands fries..... again no one passed by for us to ask and then he finished them.
These are the small things that are important to enjoying your meal.

Decent food but awful service. Food came out late and some incorrect. Server was nowhere to be found most of our visit to address any problems.

Our first visit to Whiskey Cake was great! EXCELLENT food, service and beer/whiskey selection. The celery root puree, pork chop and whiskey cake are all fantastic. Very nicely decorated, and tables aren't spaced too close together. This has quickly become our #1 place to eat out.

I was disappointed with the food. We won’t be returning. Atmosphere nice, service good, just food wasn’t tasty.

Ordered monkey bread, was served room temp, I would have preferred warm. (Never had this dish b4, maybe it’s a room temp dish, but with icing I would want warm.) The bacon is sweet. A different style of grits. They are orange in color. Just wasn’t to my liking.

Restaurant clean, everyone friendly. If you like this type of food, you should enjoy 😉

Excellent. Inventive menu items. Our party of 5 grazed on multiple appetizers and entrees and everyone was well done. We were there for Brunch/lunch but will go back to sample the dinner menu. Don't miss the Whiskey cake - it's really something special.

For couples wanting some space to talk, ask to be seated outside the bar area. Can be very noisy depending on the size and energy of groups in the bar area.

Ambiance: outdoor seating was perfect. Inside seating seemed a bit crowded and loud so im glad we opted for outdoor. Its a covered space so no extreme heat or cold discomfort during the meal.

Covid precautions: it was our first time dining out since covid started so i was pretty nervous. But everyone has masks on (when not eating) and the tables were spaced far apart enough for my comfort level. Everything felt very clean as well (though we did bring our own wipes and sanitizer to wipe down everything just for good measure).

Service: very attentive and great service

Food: 10/10. We had the short rib, shrimp dish, and whiskey cake. Every thing was so fresh and delicious and i cant wait to try more things on their menu.

Good the first time. This time food was slow getting out and 1 dish not correct. Sent back took 30 more minutes to get salad out. Probably not go back on weekends. Server was great and tried hard!! Made it right though and removed salad from bill so customer service was good.
