Home style food with good atmosphere

home style food. Simple, but delicious. Atmosphere is goos as neighborhood restaurant with fast and kind services. Reasonably priced. Save room in your stomach for whisky cake desert. Pretty good cake!

No preconceptions here - didn't know this place was "famous", we were just trying to get in out of the rain and were seated fairly quickly despite being very busy. I think peoples complaints have more to do with staffing than space. Tables were open but it took 10 minutes to get seated. Not necessarily a bad thing as I'd... More

Still very popular, but not as good as it used to be. Still has long waits. Needs to update menu. What were original items are getting a little stale.

Been to Whiskey Cake for business team lunches and they managed to get us in an out in a very reasonable amount of time while making it feel we were lingering over lunch. Lots of variety in the burgers and has menu items for our vegetarian diners. The dessert (Whiskey Cake) is not to be missed - we always bring... More

When comparing this restaurant to other eateries in the area, I would say that this restaurant would rate in the 7-8 out of 10 range. The food has always been very good, the service decent enough and the prices not too high. I wouldn't take small children here but nowadays they take small children just about anywhere. You can't leave... More

I gave visited Whiskey cake on two prior occasions and both of my prior experiences were excellent. My most recent experience was just as wonderful. Great service, excellent food... loved the humus, goat cheese fondue, grilled shrimp salad and of course the famous whiskey cake!

We have been to Whiskey Cake 4 times and we have never been disappointed. They serve tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes & cocktails out of their 'from scratch only' kitchen and bar. Chicken and bacon laced belgian waffles, lemon poppyseed pancakes with blueberry compote, pork sliders, fried green tomatoes, poblano white cheddar grits, OMG burger, kale and pomegranate salad....everything is fresh and...

I had heard great things about their brunch but I was pretty disappointed with this place. Went on a Saturday morning and didn't have to wait at all thanks to their call ahead seating- which was incredible- but that's about where my being impressed ended. The restaurant itself is pretty cool and has a fun/quirky environment, the waitstaff was great,... More

This place is hip and fresh, unique vibe and menu, but needs a service facelift. The kale and pomegranate salad was awesome, but it came with a deep fried soft-boiled egg. I didn't understand the deep fried soft-boiled egg, but tried it - wasn't for me. The service was extremely slow, and we were growing impatient and frustrated. Dinner took... More

Neat decor. Overall, great experience. Staff very knowledgeable of food and drink. Top notch training. They don't want you think they are a chain, but they are a regional chain. Still a great job.
