The food is delicious, every time, the food is amazing. Definitely do the chicken with white bbq sauce. It’s very loud, so probably not the place to propose.

Host/servers in trucker caps, but food decidedly hipster. Prices are very high for what you get. Unusual menu items not found in many Seattle restaurants.

Service was great and the place is super cool. Bar had amazing choices of alcohol. We got the sticky pork belly appetizer ... not sticky but it was super good. My husband and I ordered the Debris sandwich to share. It sounded so good...brisket, chicken and pork. It was a huge mistake. Assuming it was chicken livers and not the smoked chicken...the entire sandwich was oily and the flavor was horrific. Couldn’t even get one bite down.

We were easily the oldest in the restaurant and that was fine with us! 65 isn't old ;)
We loved the barrel drinks, the tater tots, brisket and pork were all great.
We will definitely go back. Do get a reservation.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Don’t get me going on the bourbon list...it’s off the charts for variety and price. Beef brisket was very tasty I would order again. Varied menu with stick to your ribs goodness. Lastly, this place offers a wonderful and inviting customer experience. The wait staff and the gm were on their game and delightful. I’m going back next time I’m in Seattle. Thanks Radiator Team!

It was a bit noisier (music, people’s convos seemed normal) than I expected, but the food was to die for. Honestly one of the best meals. I had the brisket and hush puppies.

Great food in a friendly environment. however I only gave it 3 stars because they were out of 3 different menu items. when you only have 30% of your menu out..... kinda hard to get any better then 3 stars.

I did not like my food very well. My husband's beef brisket had lots of fat in it. I had chicken liver and it had so much sauce on it I couldn't tell it was liver.

I've been to Radiator Whiskey a hand full of times over the years. It's best for people who like meat and rich comfort food. We were there for apps and drinks before a show and had the tots +house debris. Next time I'll add the pickled peppers as well to cut the richness.

The bone marrow was excellent! The charcuterie board was good if you like pate, which I do, however, our friend was expecting cheese as well so ask what's on the board before you order it. The wedge salad was good. It had a lot of dressing. I didn't expect to like the salad because I like to taste the greens more than the dressing, however, the radish dill buttermilk ranch dressing was mild. Thumbs up!

It's a very popular place and I'd always recommend making reservations if possible. For a casual, interesting restaurant and bar I would expect the service to be the same. I think the service is fine, not overly or under attentive, but also not personable.

Half pig head is a must do. Enough food for a table of four if you order a few appetizers. Be sure to preorder one week in advance.

Already did recommend it to several people. The barrel aged cocktails were sublime. Everyone in our party was very happy and a good time was had. Yes, it's a bit loud, but given that it's a popular place in a small space, I'm not sure how that will change.

The drinks are strong and delicious. The ambience is really fun but very loud and tables are very closely packed in. The food is hot and very tasty but very rich and high in grease and fat. Definitely not light fare. Overall really fun place to visit!

Wonderful front desk staff.. Justin was really helpful in handling our reservations and accomodating us. Food was amazing , we tried the bone marrow, fried oysters, Brussel sprouts, and chicken livers. Everything was good. Bone marrow and Brussel sprouts were outstanding. True to its name, they had a variety of Whiskey, and their cocktails was awesome too. My only suggestion would be to add some traditional appetizers to their menu, to make it welcoming for picky eaters too. Did I say their cocktails were amazing!!! :) a must-go place.

Fun place to visit! Food was on the salty side. After seeing a dish the table next to ours had, we decided to order it & ours looked nothing like the table next to ours did (maybe the kitchen was slammed )
