The real treasure of the day was when the servers gave me my coffee in a Macho Man Randy Savage mug, and later, an Ultimate Warrior mug.

Service was great, drinks were delicious. Food was really unremarkable, and since we were there for dinner with a friend from out of town, we were disappointed. The only good part of our meal was the brussels sprouts appetizer. The rest was bland, though huge portions. Seattle has way better food elsewhere.

Great place to have a meal if you are ever near the waterfront. I recommend you make a reservation. I usually attempt to eat at the bar in most places. Radiator Whiskey is a small place, with a small bar area that more than likely, won't have space available to eat there. Nice cocktail selection, staff is great, and the food is awesome. Two chefs in a small kitchen view-able from the dining room kick out a great product. Will go again..

Outstanding service from Abbey. Fabulous whiskey cocktails--I tried 3 and they were all terrific. Don't miss the smoked mushrooms or fried brussel sprouts. Also great brisket. When I am in Seattle, I never skip going to this place.

The bourbon margarita was amazing!! We had such a good time. It was intimate yet fun. Noise level made it feel like we were out having a good time but could still enjoy a conversation with just the two of us. We were very pleasantly surprised with the popcorn (went perfect with the margarita) and the chicken we shared was so good!! We’ll be back and we’ll bring friends!

Well, if you love hot spicy food and a loud noisy environment with an amazing whiskey list, Radiator Whiskey is for you. Definitely a place for a younger crowd right in the heart of Pikes Market.

Loved it! The food was outstanding and the atmosphere unique and fun. It's a small place and very popular so you need a reservation. I only wish there were a few more entrees to choose from on the menu, but the ones we ordered were delicious and I'd rather have quality food than a huge menu of options. I had the brisket and my boyfriend had the meatloaf sandwich. He had a beer and I had the cider which was nice and dry and crisp. The brisket was tender and I loved the arugula side. The sauce on the brisket was unlike any I've tasted. It's very noisy, so not great for a first date or if you're trying to catch up with an old friend! But otherwise the noise wouldn't bother me, it makes for a fun night out.

We really enjoyed the music (David Bowie, The Clash) and the atmosphere was pretty cool (vintage pics of Johnny Cash on the wall, etc.) The free popcorn for the table was an interesting touch. If you sit up against the window, the lights from "Showgirls" across the street was obnoxious but other then that we had a great time. The signature cocktails were good too, I recommend the "Phil Collins."

Came on a double date on New Year's Eve. We had the apple salad and tater tots to share + the apple moscow mule. I enjoyed those. I also enjoyed the free popcorn!

For the entree, my boyfriend and ordered the fried pork shank. While it was tasty and well-done, the meal felt incomplete - perhaps a side included or something would have been nice. It got tiring to eat after a while on it's own.

Overall, I had a good time though I felt I wasn't really satisfied from the meal.

Wow, I really love this place. The servers really seem to love their jobs too and go out of their way to make your evening wonderful! At first, this was just a place with just amazing meat, but now, it's a really special place to me just because of how wonderful I have been treated there.

As for their meat I have three words to say: perfect smoke ring. What more is there to say? Well, maybe one more thing. The meat falls off the bone!

The roasted half pig head is such a COOL experience! Not gonna lie, I was kinda squeamish when it arrived on the table and kinda avoided looking at it the rest of the night lol. Definitely worth the experience though!

Radiator Whiskey is a small restaurant with large and unique flavors. Their selection of whiskey is quite impressive and is peppered with several local distillers. while their menu is small, it is filled with very flavorful offerings. My wife has the fried pork shank which was crispy, smoky and so delicious. I had the 1/2 smoked chicken that was served with potato salad and a vegetable slaw that had a creamy, tangy dressing.

For desert we shared the bourbon butterscotch pudding which was topped with a bourbon whipped cream, so yummy.

I think next time I will go with some more people and order the smoked 1/2 pig head.

Impossible to find, the watermelon + tomato + fried pig’s ears is not a good combination, too loud to have a conversation, but the whiskey drinks are good.
