About Whiskey Cake - Plano

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.

We couldn't find our waiter when we both wanted to order a 2nd drink. I entrees were served promptly, and we began to eat. but when we both wanted a 2nd glass of wine, I had to signal a different waiter to please send our waiter to our table....I guess he had something better to do....too bad....the rest of the evening was fine....

Food was absolutely amazing although it is al la carte. We had the Red fish and Duck, both so yummy. Drinks were so different and that's what made them awesome. We got our entree within 10 min of ordering but the rest too quite a while, that being cocktails, dessert, and the check. We enjoyed our time.

We had a great Valentine’s Day dinner at whiskey cake. The food was great and the service was excellent. As expected, the whiskey cocktails were incredible as well. It is definitely a place to which I will return and will keep in mind when family comes into town

We recently moved to Plano and were in for a birthday. The waitress was prompt and took good care of us. Drinks were never empty and Britt(sp?) was friendly. It was a little loud for small talk but it was a busy Friday night so that’s to be expected. Awesome atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

Always a great experience. Very nice for a Sunday afternoon and it is usually hopping in the evening. If you appreciate authentic local cuisine you will more than appreciate this place.

I've enjoyed Whiskey Cake in the past, but this past Sunday was a bust. Despite the fact that I had a reservation at 1 PM (and the restaurant called to confirm the day before), we still had to wait about 25-30 minutes for a table. I can usually roll with something like this, but I had out of town guests with me and I was embarrassed not only by the delay, but the attitude of the staff. There were no apologies nor any pretense of caring, just repeated explanations that they were waiting for a particular table to be vacated so they could clean it for us. Apparently our reservation applied to only one table in the entire restaurant, even though we were only six. Table service was friendly but continued at a snail's pace. Food was quite good. Overall, the food was not worth the treatment.

Two complaints about this visit was the time it took to get seated and the time to get drinks from the bar. We had made a reservation for 5:15 and even arrived at 5:00, but did not get seated till 5:30 even though the table we were seated had been open the entire time. With two toddlers, its not ideal to wait around a busy restaurant for 30 minutes before being seated. Also, cocktails and beers took a while to come out - even after our two appetizers.

Excellent food and the service was top notch. This will be my new go to restaurant. I was looking for a locally sourced restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I’m so happy we found Whiskey Cake! Our waitress was very thorough describing menu items and making suggestions. I will definitely return and recommend Whiskey Cake to others. Also the Whiskey Cake is sooo good that we ordered a whole cake a few days later for another celebration.

We went to Whisky Cake to celebrate a birthday. It was a Thursday and we were glad that we had reservations as it was packed at 6pm. Service was outstanding and the food choices were great. Loved that there were unique menu items like deviled eggs and everything is locally sourced. The whisky cake for desert is great!

Be sure to make a reservation. The first night we tried to go here there was a 2 hour wait, so we tried again the next night, but made a reservation.
The whiskey cake is AMAZING!!!!

The food was very good. One order was messed up but when pointed out the waitress corrected it and removed it from the bill. I enjoy the food but this restaurant has a loud high with a hard floor which creates a very loud echo. It is difficult to hear conversations.

Reservation was at 12 noon for a booth. We were seated at 12:20. Hostesses were curt when I stated that it didn’t help to have a reservation. We were seated in a booth backing up to Service area...very noisy. This is not a good place for a business lunch.
