At Wink Wink Food & Drink, we're inspired by the classic food and atmosphere of the 50s and 60s, like the chic supper clubs and breezy Tiki bars, but we serve it all up with a fun, modern twist. Our chef blends local ingredients and flavors to reinvent old favorites, offering dishes that are both a nod to the past and a taste of the contemporary.

In our lounge and pool bar, you'll discover a thoughtful selection of classic cocktails, each with a playful name that perfectly reflects our easygoing vibe. This blend of past and present creates an ideal setting for everyone – families, friends, and anyone in between – to come together and enjoy the moment.

We're dedicated to ensuring the quality and creativity of our cuisine and drinks--we take them seriously so you don't have to.

    We had a fabulous dinner for Mothers Day on the outside patio. Not too loud, nice lighting and great service. We all finished our meals wanting more. Will be back soon for happy hour!

    It was Kentucky Derby time and the bar crowd was quite boisterous. Server Natalie was excellent and the short rib special delish!

    How did I not know about this gem? Had lunch there with 2 friends, the place has a super fun vibe, we ate inside. All of loved our food, the chickpea burger was excellent, great flavor and good portion, the fries with it were super. Friends had the shrimp sandwich and the chicken sandwich with tots, both loved it and devoured everything. The staff was very attentive and the manager was so nice. We all loved this place, food and value were great! We will be back!

    The food , cocktails and service were excellent . We chose to sit on patio and did not realize the hotel pool is right outside of the patio . There were children screaming for the first half of our time there . That was the only change I would make.

    What got me interested to visit this place was the names for the dishes on the menu. My husband and I were looking for a date night dinner spot. This is not that spot for sure. We didn’t realize that this place was connected to a hotel and eating while you listen to kids splash and swim in the pool is not what we had in mind for a date night. The place was super cute though. There was also a children’s birthday party going on so it was pretty loud. Nothing against children (we have 4 of our own) but this place is just not a place for a date night.
