“Surpassed expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This place is tucked away off the main roads, but not hard to find. The parking lot is way small for the building, but there is plenty of street and lot parking a quick walk away. We were there just at the start of dinner time and our wait was reasonable, less than 30 minutes, the waits were getting longer. It seemed like its crowded inside, but after we sat it was fine. The tables are not to close together, which is a refreshing change and the ambient noise and music are reasonable. Our server came over quickly and we’d ordered several sides and appetizer and just one entrée to split. The waiter or kitchen took care of pacing the meal out to us so we constantly had new dishes coming out as old ones were empty. They were busy, so this attention to detail was impressive. To the food, they really do hit the mark. Good quality ingredients that are simply prepared and the center points of the dishes and the sauces and dressing is where the creativity shows, very nicely balanced. One point to note, the appetizers are smaller portions than is common, but are priced accordingly. The proportion of the entrée and sides were normal though. When you’re there make sure to get something involving corn, we had cornbread and several cornmeal crusted items and they were sweet and fresh tasting. I hadn’t had any good restaurants experiences in this part of town prior, so in the future I’ll start walking past those others and head straight to Whisk.

“Fried Green tomatoes and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Not easy to find but we'll worth the search . Located on out of the way street behind the ACE hardware they specialize in gourmet southern comfort with local flare. Place is small and bit cramped ,reservations are recommended or 15 to 45 min wait is probable.
Food is fresh and local ingredients are the standard . We had fried green tomatoes and cornbread for starters followed by Shrimp and grits with fried chicken breast mashed potatoes and fresh veggies for main course. The sandwiches looked hearty and salads also seemed fresh and large . The bar is mostly wines with some locally brewed beers on tap . All around good food and service, definitely worth a try.

“Tasty casual eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Whisk offers a very healthy and enjoyable menu. The parking is rough and it can be noisy, but the food and service are great. The fried green tomatoes along with the bell jar glasses gives it a southern feel, but with modern food tastes. We enjoyed the sandwiches and entrees we ordered. Good food, good service and good value adds up to a good place to eat.

“Foodies, don't miss it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Ate lunch here for the first time with my older son. Nice modern atmosphere and decor, OK service (U won't mind), because of the wonderful uniquely prepared food. Moderate prices with a good wine list. Will be back again & again.
