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.

Great food as always. I've been to this location multiple times and usually have good service but on this visit the service was less than ideal. The waiter didn't check on us very often so we had to wait a lot longer for drink refills and to request condiments to accompany the food. I ordered Chicken and waffles and wanted syrup to go with it. My food was cold by the time l received the syrup.

Great service and food . Our server was exceptional, and did not rush us, so we could enjoy our evening. The specialty drinks were tasty, and the food was prepared perfectly. Ad of course, we had to have the whiskey cake! Well worth the calories

Food was delicious. Short ribs over spaghetti squash with a nice pepper kick. But the whiskey cake🤤 so good! Eat it warm for the best experience.

Love the food. The only issue is that it does get quite loud. Not the best place for a group who hasn't seen each other in a while and want to have a full conversation with everyone at the table. Noise level is fine for parties of 4 or less.

It was a very nice place that had a unique vibe for the Dallas area. The food was amazing and the staff were very knowledgeable. If you go, you must get the Whisky Cake dessert.

Brunch used to be really good, Food quality & portion seem to be slipping.....Farmers Breakfast...food was not even warm, potatoes tasteless & stale, bacon tasty but not crispy as asked for. Asked for Jam/Jelly for Biscuits... barely a tablespoon size portion. Other Diners food “hash” was also barely warm. Been coming here since it opened,...
focus seems to be trending more toward Beverages than Food.

A mixed bag this time around. Went from “we’re waiting for a few tables to open up” to “this tall table by the door is your only option, unless you want to wait another 25 minutes.” Recommend putting this in your reservation notes, so you have a better dining experience. The tall tables with barstools are extremely uncomfortable. The bowls of tomato soup were only half full, so more like a cup portion for a price of a bowl. Also the soup had way too much pepper upfront, and they seem to do that with all dishes instead of just letting people season their own plates to individual taste. The duck and short rib were both excellent. As always, Mariana provided superior service.

I came in for dinner/business meeting on Monday night. My friend was already sitting at the bar when I arrived and had order a starter and drink. Instead of sitting at one of the small two top tables we decided to sit at the sofa/chair table near the bar and was told a server would be right over. After sitting there for 10 mins i stopped a server and asked for water and if someone would be helping us. He said the server would be right over. Never happened and then I stopped a busser and asked for a server when she went over to two servers and looked like they were saying it's not my table, it's not my table. Multiple staff members walked by and the manager as well and we were never spoken to by anyone. I enjoyed my glass of water and we finished our meeting and left. We were there for at least an hour and my friend had his one beer he purchased at the bar and his carried over to the table and I only had a glass of water. For this place to be so popular and busy I was shocked at the service or lack there of. I should also mention I am a district area manager for a local restaurant group here in the Dallas/Plano area meeting with the owner of our restaurant group and decided to try Whiskey Cake to see what all the hype was about. After that experience, I can honestly say it's exactly that, all hype. I've had better service at Waffle House and no plans on going back.

We are regulars. Went on a Monday evening to avoid the crowd. That worked. What we would like to see, however, is more vegetable entrées.

Brunch was fantastic. The Bloody Mary bar was my favorite, especially with blue cheese stuffed olives. My son loved the beet juice and husband loved the French pressed coffee.
The food was excellent and they had plenty of GF options for me.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary at Whiskey Cake, and we were very pleased. Slater was our server and he went out of his way to make sure we had a good evening. When we told him that we would be sharing both of the entrees that we ordered, he brought them out already halved for us.

Celebrated my 35 birthday. The table was placed directly under the AC vents and they blew full blast the entire time. When large grown men require jackets.. it’s too cold. The food was cold before we could even finish the meals. Cocktails were a tad over priced but the food was good while it was hot and the wait staff did their job well.

The only negative I have is they sat us by an outside door in Texas IN JULY and the waiters kept going in and out, in a out and sometimes the door did not close and stayed open! Hot air flooding our table and it was an engagement party. We were all dressed up and almost sweaty by the end of dinner. The food was fabulous and the waiter great! They need to get an automatic door!
