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 food just tastes better that way.
We believe that local is a place as much as it is a way of eating. Everything on our menu is infused with and inspired by the local ingredients available each season. All of this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table, or relax out on our porch.

    Made a dinner reservation for four. We were sat at the high counters which seemed a little crowded and not as private as we would have liked. Food was very good, atmosphere was great, almost a 5 star experience.

    This was our second time dining at Whiskey Cake. We loved our first experience, and our second did not disappoint. This time, we brought our entire family including my mother. We celebrated my mom's birthday. Food and service was excellent. Everyone on my "roster" found something they liked and enjoyed their meal. This, mind you, is a very challenging task for us. The cocktails were first class and the service was solid. Atmosphere is upscale yet casual. Love the lighting and the nostalgic "old school" feel to the place. One of my family's new favorite eating establishments. Great job. Bravo! We will be back again.

    Mussels appetizer was excellent. Big enough for two people with broth so good you want to swim in it. Then came the wait for our entrees. We were in no rush, do we didn’t mind except that our waiter seemed to be MIA during this time as well. When our Steak Frites and Shrimp and Grits finally arrived they were lukewarm - and that’s being kind. The shrimp and grits were great - if only they were warm. The steak still works and doesn’t need to be hot to be good. Unfortunately the fries were a cold, limp, greasy disaster. Warm food and fries done properly would have made for a really nice meal!

    The table was not ready when we arrived. Had to wait 10-15 minutes. Did not get the type of table we reserved so that we could be seated. I had noted it was my wife's birthday on the reservation and no recognition of her birthday was made. The prices are a bit high for the amount of food provided. The presentation of the steak fritas was pretty uninspiring (just a slab of meat and a cup of fries). This was our 3rd visit and I don't think I would come back again. Some positive notes are that we had a good waiter and the food tasted good.

    We arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation. We were told they were getting the table ready. We were repeatedly told our table was getting ready. After 45 minute we finally forced them to seat us. It was my sons birthday dinner and he wanted to eat here. Otherwise we would have left. The food was great the waitress was great and management made the attempt to appease our frustration. Still undecided if we return to Whiskey Cake.

    Overall we had a good experience! Our server was great and we had no issues with him or the food. The only issue we had was that we made reservations intentionally so that we could of course, have a table at a certain time. It was our wedding anniversary and we had our children along. We wanted to have a table to eat and get out so the kids didn’t have to wait or be out too late. When we arrived our table was not ready. We arrived a little early so it wasn’t a big deal, but when our reservation time came, we were still waiting. For 40 minutes we waited and watched others be seated in standard seating prior to us. When we asked for updates we got attitude from the hostess staff. I’m just disappointed in the way it was handled.

    I wasn't expecting much from the chicken melt sandwich but it was delicious and huge. The mac and cheese was additional money and although it was delicious, I don't think it was worth the extra $5. It was creamy and rich. THe best part was the whiskey cake. I took it to go and ate it about an hour or so later and I'll be back.

    We’ve had delicious food here, but this time the food and service were sub-par. The waitress didn’t check in with us again after our food was delivered - and 2 out of 4 diners were unhappy with their food. Despite having untouched plates on the table, the waitress only brought boxes - still not asking if we enjoyed our meals, etc. She did not ask if we wanted whiskey cake (the signature dessert) and was dismissive when one diner tried to address an issue with his entree while she impatiently waited for the bill to be paid. All in all a disappointing experience - especially when we know how good it could have been.

    Our family was celebrating three birthdays and wound up having a surprise proposal too! Our server was great at making our night great. He was very knowledgeable about the drinks and food offered and engaged in our festive mood. Their menu has something for everone. Their drinks make you want to explore new drinks. None of us were disappointed with our selection We were on the patio for a little more privacy and they lowered the plastic over the window by us to help block the wind. I would definitely recommend Whiskey Cake for your next outing.

    Made reservations and did not get seated until after 30 minutes due to the chaos at the reception desk. We eventually sat at the bar where the service was very good even after being splashed with liquid (water I hope) twice by one of the bartenders.

    The experience and ambience was great. I also loved our server “Reign” not sure if I spelled it right. The taste for the “Waffles” for the Chicken Waffles tasted sweeter than previously. I would recommend going back to the batter with bacon (this was nice and tasty). Other than that we had a grand experience as usual…Thank You!

    The drinks that me and my wife had were good. The menu is very limited so the choices are few. The food we ate was ok but wasn’t great. The place was over packed, loud and the wait staff broke multiple dishes. We will not be returning or recommending. If you want drinks, it’s the place for you. I wouldn’t recommend for a date married couple or family night with the children.
