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.

Tim was an awesome server - he was attentive to our needs and
provided great suggestions for meals and drinks! The food came out fast, and the facility is doing a great job at keeping the parties distanced.

Our waiter Camron was outstanding, he has waited on us in the past and even remembered us! The food was good but not at the level we are use too. For having 50% seating the restaurant seemed overly busy. Will go again soon, one of my favorites

Place smells odd. Needs a full bar. Limited menu. It’s fine but nothing to write home about. Definitely not a must experience MEH.

Reservation was at 7pm. Our server took 20+ minutes to get our orders. Completely forgot to enter my husbands entree (whose birthday it was) & never put in our two orders of deviled eggs for our appetizer. It finally dawned on her she hadn’t put his order in, so she returned to ask what he had ordered & proceeded to have the cooks on the line rush the order so it would be served in sync with ours. Once our food came, my husband asked about the deviled eggs & she apologized once again & stated she hadn’t entered those in either. She put them in & comped them, they came out after we had all finished our entrees. My turkey chili was luke warm. It had taken over an hour from the time of our reservation to get food on the table. My father in law gave her a $20 tip & when he paid in cash she had the nerve to ask if he wanted change for $200 on a $170~ bill when she had already received a cash tip for subpar service. We’ve been here multiple times & this was by far the absolute worst experience we’ve had, & for it to be on a special occasion was the icing on the cake. We both have worked in the service industry, specifically kitchen & front of house as well as other industry related jobs. This was completely unacceptable behavior accompanied with terrible service.

Our experience was excellent and the value of food/beverage/service to the price was very good. Our waiter Cameron was very good and Tim visited with us extensively on value-whiskeys. Very interesting and enjoyable. Food was excellent!

Not their best showing. Candied Bacon was not “candied”, took 12 minutes before anyone came to the table, 1 meal was not what we ordered. Maybe after this Covid stuff blows over they can get back to normal.

The grilled SIRLOIN was a very small portion for being the most expensive item on the menu at $24. In pics it shows broccoli comes with it on the side, but it’s just a few little pieces. It was seasoned nicely, but not a good choice for a hungry guy. My wife loved the grilled SALMON and her meal was almost twice the size of mine. We also ordered a side of Rutabaga-carrot mash that tasted like creamy sweet potatoes. Then we shared the WHISKEY CAKE!!!!! It was delicious and almost made up for my disappointment with the small steak. I’d go back for the cake but not the steak.
The restaurant was very clean and they were COVID-19 aware with face masks being required until you got to your seat. The seating was nicely spaced out at least 6-10 ft apart. I also saw them taking the temperature of an employee as they arrived for work. They also had a sanitation station available.

Very good tastes and some unique and interesting menu items with very flavorful preparation. Somewhat unique and delicious (but pricey) cocktails. Been there 5-6 times and never had anything but a great meal. The music is too loud for me, and especially hard to talk with wait staff with the music and now the masks interfering. My top pick among all the La Cantera eateries.

Always get same couple of items...
Salad had a lot of wilted spinach, dressing was thinner than usual with no flavor, little amount of cheese and pecans. Another in my party had French fries which were overcooked and hard. Waitress was not very attentive to asking if we needed sweetener and when we needed refills.
