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.

    Mikey our server made the night special with proactive and consciously separating the steak knife filled napkins away from our kids to bringing kid friendly cups and being very quick on all our drink refills and sharing his good recommendations. We ended up getting 2 desserts for the 4 of us to share. Excellent experience - this guy made all the difference with SERVICE that seriously seems to be lacking these days.

    It was our first time at Whiskey Cake, having a reservation was helpful, and we were seated immediately. We had the candied bacon and goat cheese appetizers and both were delicious. The chickenbirdger was amazing!! My husband’s pork chop was unfortunately over cooked but they were kind enough to not charge for the plate and even threw in a whiskey cake on the house. We spent more time overall than we expected but it was definitely worth the wait. Will be back in the future.

    We went for my birthday and it’s my in-laws favorite place when they are in town. The gluten free options are plenty. However, every time we book I specify standard seating as opposed to bar or high top options. Every time they try to seat us in the bar area at a high top table. For a group who doesn’t drink alcohol and likes to talk, it’s a bit much. I am forced to ask for a different spot and they always oblige.

    Ambiance is great. Went for Brunch. My order though was served cold. Had over medium eggs and they were cold. Potatoes were cold. Brunch should ALWAYS be served hot and especially when ordering eggs. I sent it back snd they brought out a new plate which was very warm. Should have been right the first time! Also they did nothing special for my sis birthday which I mentioned in reservation. 3 stars

    Service was very slow, server kept disappearing. Food was just ok…chicken sandwich had a lot of gristle in it and no flavor.

    Whiskey Cake - San AntonioResponded on September 2, 2022Hi Lvan, I would like to apologize about your recent experience with us. I was hoping to get more information on your service and who your server was. Did you let the staff know about your food? We would have been more than happy to get you something you would have enjoyed. I would love to get you back in the door for redemption. Let me know what you think? Thank you -Jennie AGM

    Nice restaurant concept and esthetics. Pleasant and helpful server. We ordered a rare steak, arrived medium but they cheerfully brought a new one that was perfect. Pork chop was disappointing and dry. Whiskey cake and cream was amazing. So we had a nice time but food could be better.
