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.

Always glad that I ate here. Had the pork brisket and it was so good. Of course the whiskey cake was excellent. Can't wait to return.

I am sorry about the wit for your food. I will follow up with both your server and the chef on what happened and how we can better take care of this situation. I hope we see you again soon and take care of things in a much more timely manner.

Outstanding lunchtime with the family. Whiskey taster "flight" was a great addition. Kind of a large place and noisy. The "Board" was full of house made meats and accompaniments. The cheese and chili grits could have been spicier. Brunch short rib has was excellent could have been a bigger portion. Chicken and waffles was excellent, kids Mac & Cheese was scarfed up quickly. The house version of Eggs Benedict was also excellent. Definitely will visit again when in San Antonio. C&H

Great restaurant for a date. Both the food and the service were perfect. It is pretty loud so it’s definitely kid-friendly. The only problem we found was that the seating very hard and uncomfortable. Normally we would not notice such a thing, but we stayed a long time and had several drinks. Overall, we loved this restaurant and highly recommend it.

Such a well thought out menu, get the local board as an appetizer. The turkey burger was so flavorful and moist. Awesome date place or to go with a friend.

Whiskey cake is our special occasion restaurant. Finally got to take my mother in law and aunt. They loved it as much as we did. The atmosphere is fun, the staff is always so pleasant, and the food is truly what dreams are made of. You can taste the freshness and care that went into each dish. Highly recommended!

My friend whom I had not seen in several years and I had lunch at Whiskey Cake. This is the perfect place for lunch for those who want to enjoy conversation and a very nice lunch. My friend had the Mac and Cheese and the Turkey Chili. I had a salad with chunks of friend chicken, Granny Smith apples thinly sliced, and grapes. We both were very pleased with our lunch. Of course, I had to have the Whiskey Cakes and it was delicious. The piece of Whiskey Cake was huge so I took most of it home to enjoy later. Clean, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be back.
