Contemporary American
Whiskey Cake is an award winning farm-to-table restaurant, offering signature New American comfort food with a farm-to-fork mission. The approachable menu locally sources as much as possible and will feature innovative appetizers, slow-cooked meats and freshly caught fish, along with the infamous whiskey cake for dessert.

The large central bar pays homage to great whiskeys with an expansive list of variations. A menu of cocktails features creative concoctions of local spirits with fresh ingredients, evocative of beverages served at a pre-prohibition bar experience.

The contemporary design of reclaimed architectural elements creates an environment that is comfortable and inviting, an ideal spot for dinner after a long workday or a lazy brunch on the weekends.

Brunch with my husband, niece in law and a 7,5, and 4 year old nephew and nieces. Perfect location, seating and staff were amazing and the kids loved the pancakes, eggs and bacon! I’m vegetarian and they have options to fit a wide variety of food preference needs.

Superb all the way around! Can’t wait to go back and make brunch at this restaurant a regular occurrence!

Food was great. A bit on the noisy side but guess that the environment at the location. Had a special request when I made reservations and they didn’t do anything I asked. Not sure why they have that section on the reservation site if they are not going to accommodate. Staff was great and knowledgeable.

Kale salad was average. Chicken entree was prepared properly and had great flavor just much smaller than led to believe. Service was great, staff was very friendly

My wife and I had some great food and service at Whiskey Cake this weekend. We started with the Goat Cheese Fondue which was Devine - just enough savory snap to go with the cheese and toast points to make it the perfect starter. For dinner I had a premium Ribeye and she had an awesome Short Rib. To end the Perfect evening we shared a Whiskey Cake. It is obvious why this treat is the restaurant’s name sake. So wonderfully decadent. This may be my one favorite dessert that’s not chocolate. On top of it all the ambiance and service were superb. A Top Notch experience in San Antonio.

The service was great but slow. the whiskey cake and drinks were fantastic.
I ordered the 1/2 chicken and took a bite out of a raw bird before I noticed. The replacement chicken was a quarter size and charred black.
I usually like the place, hoping it was an off night

We love the Goat Cheese Fondue! Instead of going to a steakhouse to celebrate Valentines Day we opted for Whiskey Cake. When a n Appetizer can make a grown man stick his neck out on the women’s day of all days ...... well it’s that good and a delightful change from the old norm !

Although the menu is not large, there is something for everyone - sandwiches, entrees, and salads. Save room for the Whiskey Cake at desert - it's delicious.

Food is well-prepared, and our services was good.

We like Whiskey Cake - will keep it on our list of places when we want a nicer meal.

The staff was excellent however I would not recommend ordering the ribeye as it was not what I expected it to be it was tasteless and tough...not what you expect for a ribeye. This was the first steak item I have ever ordered and I have ordered other entrées which I do recommend. Of course the whiskey cake was delicious however I remember the serving being a bit larger. I will go back again as there are items that I do enjoy.

My wife and I had been to the Whiskey Cake several times before, and chose it for our 36th wedding anniversary due to our previous experiences. We were not disappointed! We were seated immediately in what they claimed was the best seat in the house, and the service and food were prompt, friendly and extremely attentive. The only (minor) complaint that we have is the very low light level - we are two relatively old folks who have a difficult time reading in low light, so we had a difficult time reading the menus without the aid of our phone flashlight apps - which we know can be very irritating to adjacent diners. Other than that, everything was great, and we will be returning - hopefully many times!

The food was very good but the service was not. It was lunch time and it was not busy and the food took over 45 minutes to arrive so we were all late back to work. Had to flag down our server as there were no updates on the delays and no apologies. When the food arrived 2 of our 7 orders were incorrect and had to be sent back.

I was there early and I was able to sit at the bar and get a drink while I waited on my table. It was ready before the reservation time. That was nice. All the staff was SUPER friendly. The bartenders were knowledgeable and kind. I will be back!
