We serve up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails, all made from scratch with ingredients sourced from local and regional farms and markets. We use slow-cooking methods on our wood grill and spit and in our smoker because it tastes better that way. Come dine with us at our communal tables, in one of our booths, on our sofas or rocking chairs, or perhaps on the porch next to the fireplace.

Chairs around tables are horribly uncomfortable. Had made a reservation, but table not ready at scheduled time. Asked to sit in booth and told by waitress that was not possible since I had not specifically asked for in when I reserved Even though booths were available. Drinks good food ok

The whiskey cake was by far the best tasting food on the menu. The beet-goat cheese salad was sadly lacking beets but the sandwiches were good.

My best friend and I LOVE whiskey cake! We are literally there almost every weekend. We always sit at the bar and Mark always takes amazing care of us (plus he’s seriously such a great bartender. We even request that he makes our drinks if we sit at a table). Hands down our favorite spot in Tampa!

We love to sit outside as the interior is a little dark for use (although it’s “cool”), The food is ALWAYS delicious here. Don’t order the chips because they are SOOOOOO addicting! Ha! Included is a picture of my chicken and cheese sandwich. So yummy! -Rachel Glynn

The only thing I do not like about Whiskey Cake is when you order, like an Ice Tea that there is never any Sweet & Low available on tables. You have to ask and then wait till you server comes back by then the ice is already melting. My personal pet peeve. Also you cannot see the menus it is too dark in the booths, lighting needs to be more bright. Food was good and service. Reasonable prices.

Really great place, had an amazing time. My mom and I tried a few different things. The chicken and waffles, goat fondue, and drinks were great. The whiskey rib thing was kind of bland but was served with very flavorful spaghetti squash so that made up for it I suppose. The absolute best part of the evening though was trying the namesake whiskey cake. God that was good cake, absolutely the yummiest dessert I’ve had in a few years, I’ll be returning there to eat that again for sure, though I might skip eating dinner there.

It was ok. Not going to rush back anytime soon. Food came out at room temperature and to me that's unacceptable for being such a new place trying to establish a reputation.

Cool place overall. Great mixed drinks.
The Pork Brisket didn’t seem like brisket at all, but was tasty when combined with the poblano grits. The fried green tomatoes rocked!

The servers were pleasant, but a little unenthusiastic.

I plan to go back.
