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.

    Food was good but not outstanding. It’s a large restaurant with high ceilings so it’s noisy. The service was outstanding. I don’t think anyone in our party found anything that they loved. I think the best things we tried were the bacon appetizer and the shrimp and grits.

    The steak was nothing but fat, and the salmon had no flavor. Service was great, but food is not worth the price at all. Probably won’t go back.

    Long wait for food to be delivered after ordering and a drink order was forgotten entirely but they were very apologetic and offered complimentary dessert. It was just myself and my son so it wasn’t a large or complicated order. I think they’re just short staffed.

    We have supported Whiskey Cake since they opened, excited to have them come to Tampa since we enjoyed them so much in Texas. The drinks are great and the Whiskey Cake is a must have. They’ve changed up the menu a little recently and we weren’t too impressed with the local board selections this time around (although the pimento cheese never disappoints.) If you order it, ask for extra bread for your spreadables. The entrees were perfectly cooked (my husband always orders the ribeye) and the salad portions are huge. I would like to give them a 5 but the steak was lacking it’s usual flavor and my salad had too much dressing on it. For whiskey drinkers who like to cut the harsh burn, I suggest Little Rye Lies. The atmosphere never disappoints and the service is always friendly and reliable.

    My husband and I were excited all week to use the gift certificate our son purchased for us to dine at one of the restaurants we like to go to for our date night…Whiskey Cake Upon arrival, they put us in a separate back room when there were available tables in the main dining room. They did move us once we asked to change tables. Our waitress never greeted us with a friendly hello, my name is… she just asked what we wanted. After we received our drinks and an appetizer, my husband’s $11.50 Bee Sting cocktail arrived not chilled or filled all the way. Our waitress came back to take our order. We specifically told her we would place our order but to make sure we had enough time to enjoy our appetizer and drinks first. Not even 10 minutes went by when our entrees arrived! Needless to say, we had to start our dinner before finishing our appetizer so it wouldn’t get cold. I had also asked for an additional cocktail to arrive with my dinner twice but never received it. The excuse was the bar was too busy. My entree was the hot hen chicken sandwich which came on a reheated hard bun that crumbled into pieces when I took the first bite. The chicken itself was over cooked and was hard to chew. My husband’s shrimp and grits was very good but was a small portion for the price. We have dined at Whiskey Cake on SEVERAL occasions and have always loved dining there but with the experience we had last night we will not be back. I would also like to add that our 5:30 reservation was at a time when we felt it would not be busy so that we could enjoy our date night. We were heading out the door and in the car at 6:20! I was not going to write a review but once I received notification from Open Table that we were not checked in through Open Table at the restaurant I felt I had to complain! Such a disappoint…

    I've visited your location four times and each time the level of service has declined and the food is very average. Your staff is very unwelcoming and lacks people skills. The Texas locations are much better and their food exceeds yours easily. Please do better!

    Not very good last night. First, The duck wings were not available.. The chili was super greasy with at least 1 inch of grease on top. We only got a cup of chili. The hamburger was overcooked when I asked for medium rare and my bun was stale. The french fries were cold and broken.. My salad, they forgot the dressing and didn’t bring it out for at least 10 minutes when I asked. I would say after the pandemic it was a very bad experience. I would not suggest going back again for a while. When leaving, we ran into two other friends that were dining at the restaurant and both gave the same experience as ours. My friend said he ordered the hamburger and his bun was also stale. So, we left and went to the English bar across the way and had a pretzel. Sad to say, not good. Sad to say, for $100 meal, we won’t be coming back anytime soon.

    Cocktails and the whiskey cake were the best. Steak was rare, not medium rare, the porkchop was overdone and dry, fried green tomatoes just tasted like breading, it was so dim you could barely see. Overall a very poor value for how much the food cost just come here for drinks and dessert go get a dinner elsewhere.

    They got us our table very fast. We had a waiter immediately. The service was above and beyond. Our only issue was the first salad we ordered. It was extremely seasoned with either soy sauce or balsamic vinegar so we asked for a different plate and the manager himself apologized and delivered our new salad which was way better than the previous one.

    The ambience is great, there are twinkling lights in the restaurant, that is darker, and Candles lit at each table. Unfortunately we got sat next to a window and had the sun shining on us and I would’ve loved to of been sat closer to the bar area which is what I requested when we arrived and there was plenty of seating for that but we were not sat there. Maybe short staffed not sure. Our server was amazing and very knowledgeable of the menu and good drink recommendations. unfortunately the plates are extremely small I don’t think I’ve ever left a restaurant where my husband and I both ate our entire meals an appetizer and a dessert. Amd this happened. The portion sizes are extremely small but the prices are not. Overall this is a fantastic place for drinks appetizers and desserts but definitely I would skip the main entrée next time.
