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.

Not a great visit. They ran out of tall glasses for the Bloody Mary bar. It took a really long time to get our drinks. We ordered the short rib hash to split like we always do and the portion was way smaller than usual. Otherwise good.

Made a res and arrived on time but still had a 15 min wait. I wouldn’t have minded so much if the hostess didn’t rudely say there were several reservations waiting. Sat down and the waiter talked to us a bit about the menu and helped with drink selections. Everything was going good til we ordered food. We ordered 2 sandwiches and two orders of sliders; ended up waiting 40 min for our food. The table next to us, that sat after us, got their steak at the same time we got our food. No “sorry for the wait” or any sort of apology from our waiter either. I’ve had friends rave about Whiskey Cake but after our visit, don’t see why the hype. Food was good but service needs major improvement.

The place was busy. Normal since it was Friday dinner time. Service was a bit slow because of that, but the server was great and she was really nice with us. We will definitely repeat.

Even though the order wasn’t quite as described in the menu, it was excellent. The waiter was very good about keeping our Arnold Palmers filled and ensuring our needs were met. The salad was crisp & fresh. The Whiskey Cake was excellent, start with dessert!

Salmon was excellent. Not fishy. Server was savvy regarding beer choices. Good advice there. But the best was the Whiskey Cake. The Manager came by and told us it was the bee's knees and he was correct. Wonderful evening.

It's an over priced mediocre experience at best. Our party of 3 paid over $100 dollars for our meal and left hungry. I ordered 2 appetizers no entree, 1 one of which I sent back because it was inedible. To be fair the waitress did remove it from our final bill. I appreciate that the food is locally sourced, but in my opinion source it from 'China' or wherever and get me something to eat!

One of our orders was wrong- there was cheese on a burger that was supposed to be no cheese. Overall good food though and a good environment. Price not surprising for this area of town. Try the salmon!

Buenísimos los sliders de entrada y el hummus. Los platos son abundantes. El servicio no es tan bueno. Los meseros aunque carismáticos. No están al pendiente de levantar los platos que se desocupan o de otras peticiones.

Brunch was great! Prices were reasonable, food and drinks were delicious, experienced waitress. Our table had a view of the bar TVs as well, which was cool for watching sports. Seated promptly with an OpenTable reservation, otherwise the wait was 40+ minutes.

We didn't have the Whiskey Cake for dessert but we started with the Thai wings and Goat Cheese Fondue.... yum!!!! My sons had the turkey burgers and I had the Duck breast for our main course. All were super tasty and finger licking special. Just go already, it is heavenly.
