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.

    The Steak Frites was not good at all. It didn’t even look appetizing. No sear and was rare though we ordered medium rare. The sauce on the steak was not good at all. The chicken and waffles and salmon were both good. Best part was the whiskey cake. We had to have our receipt updated because an unordered beer was added.

    We all enjoyed our meals & are repeat guests. I sure would like more seafood & vegetarian options though. And vary the salads to substitute chicken with another option.

    The place is nice but the food is way over hyped and over priced as the taste was not there. Our table ordered the ribeye steak, steak and fries and some bar drinks. One steak was under cooked and one was over cooked. The drinks made by the bar tender were horrible. Full of ice, like not even exaggerating, this fill the glass with ice then give you about 4 oz of actual drink. Tap beer was not even cold. Our waiter had an attitude and was not friendly whatsoever. First time at this establishment and not a good experience at all.

    Food was good, very unique flavors and a wide verity of options. But the execution was not the best in my opinion. The duck wings were dry but had an amazing sauce that was the saving grace for them. Over all food was just ok but has a lot of potential. Drinks were great! Service was ok, not bad but nothing special. The environment was very nice, definitely sets a mood that is enjoyable.

    We had reservations for when they opened for brunch. It took 40 minutes to receive our cheese fondue appetizer. When our eventually entrees arrived they must have taken them for a walk around the outdoor mall before bringing them to our table. They didn’t seem to understand what they had done wrong which just really highlighted they no longer have any standards.

    Nice social spot for all types of crowds, for dates, business lunches, family get together. Food was good but not great. It wasn’t cutting edge, sophisticated fair but good for the masses. I’d go back for my kids but for me, I’d look elsewhere.

    Whiskey Cake - San AntonioResponded on October 10, 2023

    Robin, thanks for the stars! We'd love to have you back. I'm certain we can find a few things more sophisticated for... Roasted Bone Marrow? Souse Vide Duck? Barrel Aged Boulevardier? Perhaps a couple of tickets to one of our 5 course pairing dinners... I'm certain we can get you all sorted out! Or... if its just for burgers and kids meals, we also crush that as well. Either way, we would be honored to have you back?
