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.

    We weren’t seated at our reservation time and told “the waiters have to get settled”. Then after 15 minutes we were sat and a couple of waiters were dragging tables that made a horrible noise and it went on for the majority of our time there.

    My only feedback is everytime I'm here you serve the appetizer first and then bring plates. Bring those first so people don't sit and wait staring at their food. Also offer fresh silverware after appetizers and before entrees. There's no knives to start so bring them with or before the entrees

    We have been dining at Whiskey Cake since it opened. The food quality has gone down, the portions are smaller and the prices are higher. The service was fine. My daughter wanted to go for her birthday so we visited she was disappointed. We should have went to Cheesecake Factory or Perry’s.

    the appetizers were really the only thing that was good. steak frites tasted like nothing, spicy chicken. sandwich was barely edible. cocktails were meh. hamburger and whiskey cake were both good! so dark that even teenagers couldn’t read menu:) we all had our flashlights out and it was so loud we couldn’t hear each other. i realize this makes me sound 90 :) but it’s true. the atmosphere was really cool

    I had birthday reservations for 8pm. Reserved a high top and upon arrival was sat at a regular table. I asked the hostess about why i didnt have a high top and she said this is all we had. I said but I had a reservation and she said this is what i get. Sat at 8pm. 8:15 our server finally shows up. 8:45 our wine finally comes out. We ordered food at 8:15. Come almost 9:30 we still didn’t have our food. The large table next to us who arrived later had already received their food. We waited 20-30 minutes for a drink refill. Waitress never checked on us except when we were hinting her down. She even made a snarky joke to my friend when trying to order. Terrible service all around. Manager ended up comping our entire tab which we appreciated but at that point my birthday meal was ruined. We frequent here almost weekly so this was a first for us. Definitely was a waitress issue and not the cooks like they wanted to blame.

    Our group went for dinner. We were seated at a high top by the bar. The food and service were great. Being next to the bar was pretty loud. Bartenders, in general, have a tendency to slam beer bottles in the trash or bang around glassware so it made it a little distracting for our table conversation. Lighting was also very dim making it a little hard to read the menu. But our server provided excellent recommendations for food and drinks. Overall, good food and drinks. Will definitely be back.

    We had a large group (8) and our reserved table was ready right on time. Our server was very nice but somewhat slow and distracted. Our “appetizer” cinnamon roll didn’t show up until after our meals arrived. Food was tasty but not exactly hot. Seemed like a lot of it had been sitting in the window for a while. Coffee also never arrived. Drinks were quite good and the bourbon flight was really great.

    Our server Dan was the best. He made our dinner experience great. I can’t say enough about him other than it’s been a very long time since I’ve had perfect service at a restaurant. His timing was perfect, he never forgot a single thing we asked for and we were never lacking for something and looking for him. The food was good, but service from Dan, absolutely unforgettable.
