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.

I had a great time. It was my first visit and Candice made it wonderful. She was energetic and attentive without being intrusive.

I will visit again.

My only complaint would be the wait time, despite having a reservation. We still waited approximately 25 min. Food was good, tho.

Food was good- but wish server would have provided more information on food being ordered for kids. We ended up ordering a dish off the main menu which was too spicy and had to order more food.
We informed the server we had never been before ordering.

We were party of 10 to 13 and they accommodate us very well.. I booked the table through Opentable for 10 and then I changed it to 13. The manger called me before to make sure we if any of my guests needs special food. Our waiter was great! They lost elecrisity for around an hour due to Tollway construction but that didn’t change any think and actually it made it fun! I will go back as I came back and picked this place for my birthday celebration ☺️

Unfortunately, my party did not have a good dining experience on Sunday. The wait time to be served was longer than usual and only half of my party received their meal. Several people were assisting with our table and no one got it right. The manager comped the meals which was nice, however, we would have rather had our meal together. This won’t be my last time going. I just think this was a one off and hopefully the next experience will be better.

Food came in fits and spurts to the table with around ten minutes in between each delivery. Our party of seven never had food at the same time for much of the meal. Some plates were room temp by the time we got them. And then sides were missing. No biscuits, no syrup for the waffles, no dressing for the salads, drink glasses empty. The food was delivered by someone other than the waiter, who rarely came by to check. We eventually got the manager to intercede, but still didn't fix all of the missing sides. Second time I've been there, first time want much better, won't go back.

First time there, but definitely plan to go back. Went based on reviews and because I could make a reservation for our group of 8. I was very pleased with the food and service. Love the farm to table aspect as well as their delicious twists on old favorites. Totally recommend for Sunday brunch. Look forward to trying them for a dinner date with just my husband.

Waiter was great. The veggie and gluten free options need work. The tortilla on my fallafell was tough and unexpected. Needed more filling.

Whiskey cake was good but you can’t build a restaurant on one dessert these days. Service was excellent drinks where good.

Perfect setting for our engagement congratulation dinner

We went for Sunday brunch with family. They were extremely busy, but did a great job having a table ready for our large(ish) group and other reservations I saw come in. The menu was fairly ordinary for brunch, but did have some slightly interesting twists on the usual. This is not the place to go for cheap brunch drinks, but there are some reasonable options on and off the menu.

Celebrated 2 Friends birthdays. Shared fried green tomatoes which were very good. Enjoyed shrimp salad but thought it could of use twice as many shrimp. Whiskey cake to finish was tasty.

Love that we can make a reservation but forgot how busy and noisy WC can be. Is there ever a dull moment at this location?

I had the French press coffee and the turkey chili. Perfect! And I appreciate the waitress telling us how to use the press.

Would have liked to see a piece of cracker like bread with my chili without having to order it a la Carte.

The cake was the real treat. Brought home 2/3 of it to share with the family.

We will be back!

No doubt that Whiskey Cake has great food. Nice that reservations are accepted during the week. For a business dinner though, it was quite loud. Best starters were definitely the deviled eggs, although the fried green tomatoes are a favorite too. The waiter mixed up my medium well salmon with another’s medium rare salmon, which caused a slight issue. The freshness of the fall side the salmon was served with though was terrific. People at our table enjoyed chicken and waffles (best anywhere!), burgers, and the spare ribs. All plates were almost completely finished.
