Whiskeys has been a favorite of mind for years. Great place to get together to eat and visit with friends. But, Whiskey’s menu seems to have been downsized. Looking for old favorites and not really pleased with their substitutes.

I am uncertain as to whether you can, but based on the volume of business, I would bet yes. A simple phone call will answer your question though.
