We serve up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails, all made from scratch with ingredients sourced from local and regional farms and markets. We use slow-cooking methods on our wood grill and spit and in our smoker because it tastes better that way. Come dine with us at our communal tables, in one of our booths, on our sofas or rocking chairs, or perhaps on the porch next to the fireplace.

Food was good. Nothing extraordinary but good. Being a vegetarian, i had the beyond meat burger and fried green tomatoes. Also the creamy tomato soup which was yum! For desert, it was the legendary whiskey cake which exceeded my expectations.

Food was really good especially the Whiskey Cake. The restaurant was really loud and hard to hear the waiter at times. Dishes we had: Texas Red Fish, Chicken and Waffles and the sandwich of the day.

You can't help but love a place where the servers wear suspenders and leather aprons, and drinks are served up on recycled cardboard coasters freshly emblazoned with the restaurant logo. The food is scrumptious, the decor is rustic chic, cocktails are fresh and flavorful, and the staff is incredibly attentive and friendly. My one complaint: there isn't a Whiskey Bird in the city where I live!

Took my wife and daughter to Whiskey Cake for my wife's birthday. We had a wonderful time. Service was outstanding. Our waiter was patient with us, and he really understood the menu. The Whiskey Cake is to die for. The dessert was worth the trip alone.

HANDS DOWN one of THE BEST brunches I ever had. Our server was amazing and the price was right on point. Do yourself a favor and try one of the signature “Hair of the Dog” cocktails because the amount of detail is INCREDIBLE. I got the farmers breakfast and it was perfect, just the right portion control - and my server was smart and clued us onto the dessert special early, strawberry shortcake and it was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. AMAZING.

Our waitress was amazing! She checked on us often and made sure we had refill right when we needed them. The food came out quickly and was delicious! Temperature and flavors were just how we expected them to be. We will definitely be eating here again.

We dine here often and this is the first time that it felt rushed and just wasn't as good as it has been in the past. We'll be back, but everything just seemed a bit off. Drinks took too long, the appetizers beat them to the table. The food was not quite as good as it has been in the past. The server was rushed. Usually it is an outstanding experience, this time only good.

Food is way over rated. Had the chicken sandwich that was filled with the cartilage. Only reason I’d ever go back is to get the whiskey cake which was dynamite.

This place is always so much fun. The food is great. I ordered the chicken and waffles. It was great but I guess I didn’t realize the egg would be on the waffle, which meant gravy on the egg, which just wasn’t appealing at that point. The whiskey cake is always the best. The service was as great from having our table ready, as promised, based on our reservation (on a Sunday during late brunch!), through the time we left. It’s always just a little too noisy and the floor was sticky by our table. All in all it was delicious and our service was great!

Perfect for our evening out with friends! The apps and cocktails were delicious. Only four stars on the food because the ribeye steak was tough with very little flavor. The French pressed coffee was amazing though!

It was great what the manager did. He brought additional chairs to the lounge area as we waited for our reserved table. He also came to our table to check on us several times as well as chatted with us. To me, that speaks highly in that he cared for the customers, which is a great example for his staff and showed it.

This was my first visit to Whiskey Cake. I was told that they get very busy so I made sure to make a reservation over a week in advance. When we got there, were still had to wait for a table, when the restaurant didn't even seem very busy. And when we were finally seated, we were seated on the patio. Keep in mind, this was a chilly day and it had been raining most of the morning. Even though the patio was enclosed, the cold air was still getting through and our table was basically sitting in a puddle of water. The food was good, but the overall experience was definitely tarnished by the poor accommodation.

You can’t get this quality collection of local food anywhere else. It’s like a pirate foodie traveled to all the farms in North Texas and his treasure is this unique collection of delights. They call it the local board.

We reserved our patio table well in advance, but little did we know the Texas weather would throw us a curve ball and it would be extremely windy and cold. Thankfully, after talking with the restaurant staff, our worries were eased when they told us they had a way to cover and heat their patios. Thank goodness! Our girls night out almost shut the restaurant down! We were there from 6:45-10:45 laughing and having a great time. The biggest complaints were 1) no beef jerky!! and 2) it took awhile to get one of our guests their orange juice they needed due to a medical condition. Other than that, it was a blast! We are going again next month!

The food has been diminished since the restaurant opened. The portion sizes and quality of food is not as it was in the past, completely amazed a the change. It was not busy between 6 and 7 pm when usually it has been in the past which answered the question as to why the food was not the quality and portion size as it was in the past.
