Whiskey Cake - San Antonio
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.

Service is usually great but this time not so much. Waiter was not very attentive and available when needed.
Excellent service and ambiance. We were very happy with our visit.
This place has a neat flair to it. Fun seating(just don't plan on staying too long, not cushiony) open floor plan, very different and unique food dishes with a price to go along, the drinks were interesting but a bit overpriced for what you get. The flights are a great idea and a little more reasonable but the unique twist on cocktails shouldn't mean having to pay a whole lot for them either. Definitely make reservations and be specific about seating at a table, a half booth or pub like table. I like to eat out but not sure this would be one of my favorite restaurants.
Food was excellent but it was incredibly loud
I am so sorry it was so loud on your last visit. Please, if you ever are uncomfortable in my restaurant give me a heads up and I'll do everything I can o fix the issue. We cant wait to have you back in and I'm so glad you loved the food!
Nice week day dinner out with friends.
Thank you so much for the great review Jimmy! We cant wait to have you back!
Local board was yummy and was gone in 10 minute by the 3 of us.
Chicken and waffles - told we were to get extra syrup, only to get none and wait 5 minutes to find waiter for some.
Redfish was superb.
Salmon was very delicious.
The whiskey cake dessert and 3 spoons was the best.
Was our waiter there to meet guys?? Don’t know and don’t care, I like the menu.
I’ll be back to Whiskey Cake, for sure, be it San Antone or Houston.
Kenny, thank you so much for the great review! You're welcome back in San Antonio or the Huston Locations any time! We'd be lucky to have you!
We made reservations at Whiskey Cake to celebrate our anniversary. We had previously been for lunch during the week and had an exquisite experience from the service to the food. Unfortunately, this evening our waitress wasn’t well-versed on any of the specials and when we asked for details she came back with very vague descriptions. It also took a considerable time for her to check back with us to the point we were considering leaving. Thankfully the food and drinks were redeeming but overall it was a lackluster experience for something that was supposed to be a special occasion. My first choice of draft beer was also out of stock but the cocktail I ordered was perfect, so it was easy to forget.
Broadway, I am terribly sorry we missed the boat so badly for you on your anniversary. I have followed up with my management team and my service team with regards to paying the correct amount of attention to guests notes, requests, and experiences. I'm terribly sorry that we failed to help make your evening special. On your next visit ask for me, Casey Covington, I'm the service manager and I'd be happy to make sure your next trip out, regardless of its special nature, a little extra special.
Amazing!! Favorite place to go!!
Thank you so much for the great review! We can't wait to have you back!
Awkward check-in; hostess had difficulty finding reservation though we were at top of list. Promptly greeted by server upon seating and drink order taken. Drinks served promptly with exception of hot cocoa; not able to serve due to a missing recipe ingredient.
Server knowledgeable on daily items and took order. Food arrived with exception of one order in process; manager brought last item and apologized for our wait. Food tasted great however some items were more spicy than anticipated or preferred (turkey chili, brunch board sausage, whiskey cake).
Bill arrived with amount comped for the late entree; appreciated surprise.
Highly recommend. Perfect spot/atmosphere for a date night or meal with friends. I look forward to going back for an evening out with the extended family to really sample the appetizer options. Variety, quality and preparation of food were excellent and did not disappoint (we had steak/couscous and chicken/brussel sprouts), the premeal margarita and old fashion were alone worth a trip back, and the whiskey cake for dessert definitely lived up to its name.
MrChex, thank you so much for the great review! I'm so glad you really loved the food! We can't wait to have you back in!
found HAIR in our food !!! Ugh !!! waiter brought us some chips as consolation !!! ive had a good time whiskey cake but this wasnt one of them ....
First time here and I was more than impressed! Food, service, and whiskey cake were best I have ever had hands down! We will definitely be back. This is our new favorite place.
Thank you Thunder Cat!!! We love being on favorite lists!
The food was terrible. I've eaten at Whiskey Cake many times and the food was great. Service was slow and the chicken meal was terrible.
Service was terribly slow. Our original waiter abandoned is. Eventually a second waiter attended our table, but he was only a little better on timing. Our food had been sitting in the kitchen for a while because our food was luke warm. Dinner took way too long, and the restaurant wasn’t full.
Not as good as it usually is. My soup was called and my guests sandwich was greasy.
Nice location, interior, and ambiance. Great food - the best chicken and waffles. Bourbon and whiskey selection is good. A bit noisy during the busy times, as expected.
We were seated right away even though 10 mins late for reservation. Food excellent, server seemed a little nervous...maybe new? Otherwise a great night out with my wife & a friend!
Gypsys! Thank you so much for the great review! I'm glad to hear that we were able to accommodate your reservation. We can't wait to have you back!
Very busy,as usual. We had reservations and still had to wait a few minutes. Neat,vibrant place. I had a double bacon burger and added fries,both great. My friend,a vegetarian, had the Beyond Meat burger, also great.
Larry, I'm sorry for your wait but I'm really exited you liked it so much. Thank you so much for coming in. We can't wait to have you back!
Food was great! But service took a while. I had to get up and look for waitress to get tea, condiments, etc ..
Great food at reasonable prices. Lots of groups dining there.
Thanks Gregg! Were glad you dug it! We can't wait to have you back!
Always a Great experience!!!! This was a first time visit for our daughter and she will be back!!!!
Thank you so much for the great review and thanks for bringing your daughter to check it out! We love having guests introduce us to new folks. Thanks for coming in.
Staff is always amazing
Thank you so much. We pride ourselves on having some of the best staff in town!
Some unique offerings that you just dont find anywhere else and the food is from local farms. The brisket had a sweet sauce with a slight spicy kick that complimented the Alamo ale.
Jeffery, thank you so much for the great review and the great Beer Pairing! Come back any time!
Had a wonderful brunch celebrating my birthday with family! Service was exceptional and great with my nephews :)
Will have to come back to try out the lunch and dinner menu.
Great food, basic menu options, good ambiance, service is good but if the place its crowded and it usually is, they will take extremely long to serve the food.
This is one of my favs. I love everything on the menu. I’ve never been disappointed which is why I bring everyone here.
So glad to hear this. Thank you for the great review.
2nd time at Whiskey Cake, love the ambiance. Always busy, recommend reservations. Service was good. Had guava gimlets, so good! Shared an OMG burger which was salty, not sure if it was a one time thing, it was the first time we tried the burger. Fries were great though. Also had the seasonal dessert, which was a rhubarb cheesecake, absolutely delicious!! We devoured it all! Overall, love this place and will come back.
Great morning brunch, I have to say this visit was the best I have had. I ordered and usually I wait 20 min for my dish, but today I was served my meal within 5 min. I was still letting my coffee cool! Great service with all the Texas gentle you’d expect
Great news. Glad you loved it all.
A go to place for a couple or couples date night
We agree!! Thank you
This was my first visit and I enjoyed it more than expected. You must order the whiskey cake for dessert
Thank you Dawn.
We had a fantastic night at whiskey cake! The meat and cheese board was WONDERFUL!! Our entrees were delicious and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Can’t wait to go back!
Erin, we can't wait to have you back! Thanks for the great review!
