Whiskey Kitchen is the cool, intimate hot spot that offers a bit of everything. The menu is a mix of chef-inspired pub favorites, southern classics, and wood-fired pizzas. An extensive list of cool cocktails accompany the city's largest collection of world-class whiskeys, bourbons, ryes, and scotches. Reclaimed oak and crocodile leather wall coverings create an atmosphere of both comfort and sophistication, while large convertible windows and an expansive patio encourage a celebration of nice weather.

Great place for lunch and cocktails

Stopped in for quick lunch while in Nashville. Wanted to avoid the tourist places and this was the perfect choice. Great food and drink. Staff was excellent and hostess was well above the standard. They definitely made you feel welcome.

We had a similar experience to the prior reviewer. Customer service could definitely improve... get the feeling that some of the staff is just too cool to help people. We went at a busy time. 30-45 min wait... but could sit at patio area. Not a huge patio... but 4 tables were being used by 4 people. Not tiny bar... More

Went here based on TA reviews and a friends advise. Walked up to see the patio full of people and several people out front. As we entered saw several empty tables only to be told the wait for table for 2 would be an hour and twenty minutes or we could go to the patio for self seating first come... More

The fried chicken and tuna were amazing. The yam fries are the best. Service was excellent. Our waitress was extremely helpful telling us what to do while in Nashville.

Service was fast, food is very good (try the fried chicken). We sat at a high table and were able to stay and chat a while in the middle of the day, not when it was crowded later in the day. Kind of a hip place. Nice outside eating area.

I absolutely love this place! I eat here every time I visit Nashville. The Mac and Cheese is to die for and the Bloody Marys are a must have.

Went here from a recommendation from a friend. We were there on a Monday, so luckily there was no wait. We had some delicious whiskey drinks before dinner- mine was pineapple, mint and whiskey- sweet but strong. The food was delicious, but the desert was amazing- peach bread pudding with blueberry sauce- YUM! Overall feel is upscale casual, plenty of... More

Whiskey Kitchen has atmosphere, delicious food and great service. There are many eclectic choices including hot chicken, bourbon poppers and nacho nirvana. The server first asked us if we had a concert to get to which was very thoughtful. The server was extremely attentive and the food was served hot and delicious.

The food tasted like it was just reheated frozen meals. They have a decent bourbon selection but the I wouldn't go back for a meal.

We stopped by on our way to Broadway. Whilst waiting for our table, we had drinks on the outdoor terrace. Such a cosy space. We ordered some bites: wicked calamari, fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, triple dip and nacho nirvana. I absolutely loved the calamari. The others were delicious as well. Eventually we cancelled our table as we were ordering... More
