Perfect place to watch any game playing. Drink prices are good and the bar is layed out with different rooms for mingling.

The decor is interesting with big "garage door" sliding windows and banquette tables that easily seat 7 people. There's a variety of items on the menu and our group ate everything from fish and chips, to pizza and fried chicken. And yes there's a whiskey selection as well. We enjoyed the food and ourselves but had a difficult time conversing... More

We stopped in for a couple of drinks before heading to a concert. Their whiskey selection is very impressive and reasonably priced. The hostess was a little aloof and seemed to be put out with her job. However, our waitress was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We didn't have anything to eat, so I can't tell you...

We sat outside on a cold wet day and were pleasantly surprised at how warm it was -- there are plenty of heaters and the atmosphere outside is actually quite nice. I had the hummus/salsa/queso appetizer. The chips were great, the queso was too runny, salsa was fine, hummus was pretty good. Had the grilled veggie wrap and it was... More

Whiskey Kitchen has great service and good food. The pizzas and cheddar ale soup are especially good. During the day it is appropriate for older kids, but at night it's a bar. When I've been there it's always been very loud. There is a small parking lot that fills up quickly. There is also valet parking. Food is upscale bar... More

Stopped in while on business in Nashville. Waited an hour for a table on a Tuesday night in early January/ post holidays. Very popular spot so do make reservations. Nice selection of brown liquor as the name suggests. In spite of the crowd the service was excellent. Compliments to Lindsay. Very good shrimp and grits and the hot chicken is... More

Had an early dinner with a friend here tonight, arriving at about 5:00. The wait for 2 was already 40 minutes, but we found 2 open chairs at the bar and bellied up. The service was quick and friendly, but not much good to say other than that. The food was exceptionally mediocre...a notch below, say, Applebee's. The pulled pork... More

On our first visit to Nashville we wanted good local food. This was the first place we stopped at upon arrival. The Yam fries are what sold us on this place. They are some of the best fries we've ever had. The menu was diverse to include an enormous selection of Whisky. Service was excellent and attentive without being pushy.... More

We had a great weekday lunch at Whiskey Kitchen. The menu had plenty of options, and the service was friendly and fast. We all tried different dishes, and all were excellent. When one of the dishes was delayed, the waitress made it right - and we hadn't even complained. That's outstanding service!

I wasn't sure if the prices would be worth the food but it was. I had s burger and hubby had fish and chips. Everything was very fresh and had a nice presentation. It was s great lunch and we would go again.

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.
