Place is a great place to eat but I do strongly advise to stay away on the weekends. Our party of 7 waited 2 hours to get a table. Also this place does not accept reservation. They also told us we could go to the bar while we wait but the place was so packed we couldn't even get close.

Whiskey Kitchen was my first culinary introduction to Nashville and I did not leave disappointed. The weather was wonderful so the majorly of my time was spent socializing in the outdoor area around a fire pit. The BBQ was top notch and the whiskey/bourbon selection is unmatched in the Greater Nashville area. Stop by for a quick bite or settled... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday morning, arrived at 11:30, just before the lunch rush. Friendly waitstaff, deep selection on whiskey and bourbon. Menu hack: order the fried green tomatoes- it's served on a giant bed of spinach. It's like having an appetizer and two salads. Had the fish and chips, nice light batter and very tasty.

We visited here for a business dinner with a party of about 10. We were told there was a 45 minute wait, which was fine. We went to the patio and had some drinks and appetizers. That part of the evening was great. The drinks were strong and appetizers were good. Staff was great. After almost 2 hours, and several... More

Food and service was simply amazing. Their premium cocktails are pricey, but unique. Try the hot chicken, you will love it.

Ive been twice. Drinks not strong enough and food is just OK. I think youre paying for the atmosphere more than anything. But it stays packed, so somebody likes it.

Met a coworker here for lunch between appointments. While limited, they do have parking on site. The food was quite tasty and the server was great. My only complaint would be that the restaurant was quite noisy which made it a bit challenging for business conversation. However, this would be a great location for some drinks and appetizers for an... More

Great food! Thought it was a little overpriced (but when in downtown Nashville, pretty much everything is). Lots of good, different options. We were a party of 6 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. The portions are a very good size!

Thank traveler12Atlanta_GA

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.
