After visiting my father-in-law who lives in the area, we decided to visit Whiskey River, which has become one of his local weekend hangout spots. We could tell that most of the folks there were local to the area and all seemed to be having a good time, enjoying their food & drinks. For us, this was a positive sign... More

This is just a local hang out bar. It's nothing fancy, and can get noisy when the bands play. Having said that I love this place. Happy hour prices are the cheapest I've ever seen any where. Lots of sauce varieties of wings, regular and boneless. Bourbon shrimp is very good. Staff have always been friendly. Best value in town,... More

They hit the nail on the head with their slogan: 'Hard to find. Impossible to forget'. Hard to find: because there are several other cute florida-y restaurants around the same area that would lure you in over this run down shack. Impossible to forget: the 'hard living' clientele. I think most of the ladies there were low-level prosties and perhaps... More

A lot of locals here and the Whiskey Bourbon Shrimp were on the small size but very tasty and filling with the cuban bread and sauce.... More

We were looking for a local seafood restaurant and stumbled across Whiskey River. The location and atmosphere met our expectations as the waterfront restaurant was very appealing. The menu had a variety of food choices including seafood. Unfortunately the offering of Basa as a fish was a let down as we hoping for more local fare. It seemed more people... More

New owners doubled happy hour drink prices since taking over... Owners take up bar stools when bar is full and will blow smoke at you while you're eating!!!!!!!!! Food is subpar.... many locals that used to frequent bar daily are now seen daily in other water front establishments.. I am one of those that left.....
