The place is really great and the food is to die for, started with some delicious cheese curds, and we had the salted pear and the Lashan burgers. Christine our server was amazing as well!

A client took us there and from the outside, it looked small. Looks can be deceiving! we had some excellent whiskeys while listening to live music. The bartenders are true mixologists. I highly recommend going here! The food is off the hook as well!

My husband and I decided to try The Whiskey Saturday evening after reading the reviews. I was not disappointed. Customer was excellent. Food was fantastic. Band was good. When visiting Orlando again will definitely make the trip out to The Whiskey ".

Cool spot. Hidden away in a strip mall but don't be fooled. Inside is a great place to eat, drink and listen to live music. Fried pickles were outstanding starter. Lots of burger choices and the fries were superb. Whiskey of course. A bit disappointed...in the IPA options, very few and the blueberry one is a definite pass. In a town that is swarming with tourists (me among them), it was great to go to a place that was buzzing but clearly a local hangout.More

The restaurant/bar hides in the strip mall by Vines and the old Moonfish restaurants off Sand Lake Drive.. It has the best Hamburger I have had in a long while. Also the Beef Brisket sandwich was very good. Good quality for a little higher price...but it delivers. Salads were made to order and everything coming out of the kitchen was prepared fresh. Give it a try if in the area. Looks like they may have some live entertainment in the evening. Opens at Noon- Midnight I believe. Also a few outside tables that seat 2 or 3 at each table as well. Multiple different types of burgers and they also have gluten free buns as well if desired. 1st time stop for me but I will be back next time I am in the area!!More

Our party of three adults enjoyed burgers and adult beverages at this friendly establishment in Orlando. Burgers are delightful. Truffle fries are delicious. They have Impossible Burgers for the veggie crowd . Beers on tap and talented bartenders. We arrived at 6 pm (Friday) and...the place was packed. Waiting line upon our departure around 7:30 pm. live music late evening. Located in shopping center with ample parking (sans peak hours). Good pricing and value.More

The burgers were decent, but just a burger. Not a extraordinary burger. Only plain fries or chips are the sides and any other side Including a house salad substitute is $3.25 upgrade fee. A side of ranch is 50 cents. A soda is $3.75 and...good luck getting a refill. The burgers are all above $15 with most being about $18. We arrived right at noon when they opened. Our food took over a hour to come. Others in the restaurant come after us and recieved their food and checks before us. We were a party of 8 so we gave a little patience for that, but when multiple tables were getting food before us and done before ours even came got annoying. We had a plane to catch and thought going right at noon wound be no problem to be done by 130. We were wrong. Their is a blonde short haired waitress who is extremely rude. Like she genuinely hates her job and it shows. The young brunette was very friendly but overwhelmed trying to wait on the whole place. The blonde is the reason this review is coming out. I don’t typically review places but she was extra rude and the food was expensive and quite slow. The place itself isn’t bad but our service that day was terrible. We don’t blame the brunette and don’t understand why it was so slow. The prices might be the going rate for the area, but we thought it was over the top.More

Burgers were what we came for and were not disappointed. Read about these burgers for a while now so we decided to try it. Went during happy hour and everyone was correct - they are amazing! Very loud and hard to get a table during...happy hour but don't give up - its worth it. Wait staff is very friendly.More

The Whiskey is a non-smoking establishment, except for a few tables right in front of the restaurant, which you have to walk through to get inside. Suggestion: put the smoking tables a little off center, away from the front entrance. Aside from having to walk...through the folks smoking, as well as the clouds of smoke, we could smell the smoke well beyond the immediate entrance. We sat at the bar, our preference, and were met by our bartender almost immediately. I ordered a Grey Goose Martini but was quickly told, after she took my order, that they had “run out of Grey Goose”. Sounds like a problem for the F&B Manager. I opted for a Kettle One and my companion ordered a Hendrick’s Martini. We were asked if we preferred olives, or a twist. A few moments later the “sampler” Martinis arrived. I did not measure the amount in the modest martini coup but it could not have been any more than a 3 ounce martini. (See photo). The Hendrick’s Martini was $12 while my Kettle One was a “Happy Hour” drink at $6. A few seats down from us another Martini was delivered, which aside from arriving in the traditional martini glass, was a full 6 ounces, at least. When I asked why the difference in sizes I was told it was a “very dirty Martini”, and the difference was made up of the olive juice. Doubtful. As we studied the menu and watched the line cooks, we noted that the burgers were “flying out of the kitchen”. Pricey burgers, and again, meager portions. Accompanying the $18 and $22 Bison burgers was an anemic portion of fries, onions and toppings on the burger. We ordered the “Banging Shrimp” which, surprisingly was a generous appetizer portion, but found the shrimp underdone. The flavor was there, just not the appropriate doneness. It’s too bad. We were hoping for a better experience based on the menu which looked exciting, different, and adventurous. They offered a “Camel burger” and I can only shudder at what they would been liked once served. Nope, I’d say pass on by The Whiskey, the smoke screen entrance, and the sampler size martinis. Plenty of dining here in Orlando. The Whiskey isn’t just one of them.More

I wish I could rate this restaurant but I was never able to order. I called earlier in the day to confirm the restaurant allowed take out/pick up and they said yes. When I called back to make my order I was placed on hold...for almost ten minutes before I hung up. I tried to call again. This time it rang non stop for almost three minutes. One more attempt yielded the same. I hung up and ordered from somewhere else. If you did not want to do a take out order, I wish you would have said that at the beginning and saved me 15 minutes of on hold/calling.More

Staying in the area and did some research to see if I could find the best burger in Orlando, and I have to say this place comes right at the top of the list. We try to eat different burgers every day while on vacation...and this place was so good we came back for a second time in the week! I got the Lassahn burger (with cheese and bacon) and it was served perfectly medium as requested both times. The burger meat was amazingly soft and juicy with a lovely charred taste on the outside. Plenty of cheese and bacon, and served in a really soft fresh brioche bun. A complete pleasure to eat. During the week between 4 and 7pm they have an extra happy hour menu and my wife got the smaller version of the Lassahn burger which was equally as nice. Both come with fries as standard and if you're looking for a smaller burger then this is really great value. The fries are also really really good. Battered and perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Rare to get good fries in the US as they are normally very boring but not here! The service on both visits was also very good, and really nice to see individual bottles of hand sanitizer on each table. Highly highly recommend the burgers here and this will become a place we visit each year when we visit Orlando in future.More

We showed up for happy hour, and while it was busy, there still seemed to be seating available. I would always recommend reservations, but it didn't seem to be required.
