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 everything tastes better that way. And all this goodness is served to you as you kick your feet up in one of our rocking chairs, dine at a fancy table or relax out on the porch.

Food was excellent. Service was a little slow, but was not in a hurry. Portions are a little small for price paid.

We were meeting friends for a night out. The food was terrific, something for everyone’s taste and our server was delightful. My husband doesn’t do great in noisy environments so we asked for a booth and he did fine. We love going to Whiskey Cake. We did have a reservation since it was for a popular time and were seated promptly.

The hardest choice is how to limit your food and drink choices. Ask about their pairings.... AMAZING and beyond worth it!

This was our first time at The Whiskey Cake. We shared a bourbon flight and fried green tomatoes. My husband had the Texas redfish and I had the roasted chicken. Both of us really enjoyed our entrees. We shared a piece of the whiskey cake, abd OMG, was it scrumptious! Our waiter, David, was great!

Had to wait 20 min for table although we had made reservations on open table. Waitress was slow and never checked on us. Only checked on us when we made eye contact when she came back to area where we were seating at. We had to ask bus person for syrup. Seems either she may had a rough night the day before and/or when she went to put orders in she waited back in kitchen till it was ready.

Good was terrible. The worst meal that I can remember. Guest specifically indicated he could not eat spicy food and waiter recommended a salad that was very spicy. I ordered the chicken/kale salad. It was obviously left over from the past weekend. Chicken was bad. Kale was over saturated. Would not recommend for any reason or purpose. Avoid the place.

Loved the atmosphere and decor.
We ordered various items as it was our first visit and we wanted to try many items.
Eggs and ham Benedict was good without the hollandaise sauce. Sauce was not good or worth the calories.
Fried green tomatoes sadly had no flavor, but the accompanying sauce was nicely flavored.
Spaghetti squash was cold as if it sat awhile before serving.
Green beans were blanched, still crunchy with a good flavor.
Brussel sprouts were also crunchy with s good flavor. One in our group preferred the veggies softer.
French press coffee was delicious.
Deviled eggs were just ok.
Hangover burger was very good, the egg on top was huge! This is definitely a good item to share.

deviled eggs-imaginative, outstanding
goat cheese fondue-a great appetizer-bread was superb
fried green tomatoes-nice presentation, nicely breaded, but for my taste, tomatoes needed
more cooking and some kind of seasoning
duck was excellent-cooked right
salmon was good, but not outstanding compared to a ginger salmon by others
whiskey cake was great, as good a house specialty desert as i have ever had
waitress was friendly, cheerful and well informed on the menu

Food was below average but the drinks were good. My husband ordered a pork dish and it was undercooked, our appetizer of fried green tomatoes was cold and my salad had wayyyy too much dressing on it. The staff was friendly but the food was just so bad.

Great food. Little expensive but still great. Only issue was that we had to ask the hostess to go find us a waitress to assist us so we didn’t miss happy hour prices since we had been sitting for longer than you would normally expect at a restaurant.

I will return. I had a very enjoyable evening but would have a mixture of appetizers and skip the main courses in future The appetizers are all outstanding but I thought that the main meals were not much better than average. The whiskey cake dessert is excellent and very close in taste to English sticky toffee pudding. Excellent service and fair prices.

Love this place. This is my 3rd visit....This time around, my plate of eggs was ice cold, but I didn’t want to cause a hassle because my friend and I had not seen one another is a long time and I wanted to focus on her.
