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.

Service and food quality have taken a significant dive in my view. My last visit pre-pandemic was incredible on all points, which made me think having a business dinner there would be a good idea. Sadly, I was wrong. I will still go back to see if things have improved, and I sure hope it does.

Whiskey Cake was out of a handful of entrees and it took a long time for our food to come out (kitchen slow). 1 at our table got a chicken sandwich with pieces of bone not removed, both of which she bit into - she couldn't eat after that. Manager was apologetic and tried to make it right (comped her meal and offered a new entree), but it was upsetting. The other entrees at our table were "ok" at best, nothing special. On the plus side, the cocktails were good and our server was attentive and nice. But overall, I would not go back. It was a birthday celebration and the experience was disappointing. I had been there previously for a brunch and it had been much better.

We love going to Whiskey Cake but it seems to get worse every time we go. The food is usually good, it just takes forever to come out and the service is not what it used to be.

First time we have had a bad experience. Server was having a bad night. It appeared all other servers were fine and even came and helped our table. At one point because we asked for help to get another beer from another server, our original server came by and snapped at us and proceeded to tell us they were short staffed rather abruptly. My kale salad was all Kale and left most of it. They supposedly ran out of mashed potatoes and then were serving them to the bar and then had to ask another server for potatoes with our parties ribeye and then magically lots of potatoes appeared. Just not good.

When I arrived to check in there was no one available to do check in waited 4minutes for someone to come and greet me.
My reservation was at 6:45pm and was seated at 7pm when we were seated there were numerous empty tables not sure why we waited this long.
Server was awesome and food was great.
Small hiccup at checkin but everything else was wonderful.

We ended up walking out so I am not sure how the food it. Once we sat down the waitress walked over to inform us of everything they did not have. Once we heard that we said we'll cancel the drink order we will go eat next door at Perry's.

Made reservations a head of time for a Sunday afternoon for brunch because I read how busy it can be. I'm glad I did. It was relatively busy but not overcrowded. Me and my friends sat at a high top table. That worked for us. We ordered drinks. There was a drink with the word Escape in it that was very very delicious. Me and one of my friends had two each. We both had had another drink before ordering that one. They were made well because we both were a little tipsy by the end of brunch. Lol. Now to the food. I ordered the goat cheese fondue and the biscuit appetizer. The goat cheese dish is not a fondue and is more a dip. I just came from Europe with real fondue so I was a little disappointed. I had the cinnamon roll pancakes and the BLET For my meal. The cinnamon roll pancakes were just okay. BUTTTTTT the BLET was everything. That would definitely be my go to meal if I was ever back in the area. I love biscuits and the biscuits were just okay. My other brunch companion loved the biscuits and the spread that came with it. It was like a chipotle sauce. Not like a butter spread or something. Overall great experience while visiting SATX for the weekend.
