Loved the Atmosphere, the food was ok. Great Nachos! I felt the food didn't match the vibe of the place.

We had a great lunch with creative local dishes. The menu was a great mixture of healthy choices and Southern comfort dishes. The servers were attentive and kept the drink glasses filled. Lots of locals filtered in for lunch, but just as many tourists, with a short walk from downtown.

We enjoyed the restaurant and food. The spinach and artichoke dip was really good. Almost everyone got the salmon and loved it. Sat outside, pretty noisy inside.

Had the Ale soup and wedge salad. Soup was creamy and excellent taste. My bf had Chef's special, the Southerner. He loved it. Ate outside by the firepit. It was crowded and fun. We will definitely go back.

Whiskey Kitchen is a reasonably priced dining experience with a high end feel. We went in on a Sunday night and only had a 20 minute wait which was long enough to enjoy a drink at the bar. The drink menu was quite extensive and the bartenders were very social and engaging. The server we had was very efficient and... More

Sure, they have spinach and artichoke dip, nachos, and calamari on their appetizer list like everyone else, but please don't expect to get the usual mediocre quality like other places-this joint is way better than that. Even the pizza was something special! If the wait is too long (since they don't take reservations 😒), head next door for a cocktail... More

Sat outside for drinks and appetizers and decided to have dinner. Our of the 3 meals- shrimp and grits, Nashville hot chicken and fish tacos only the shrimp and grits left something to be desired. Otherwise it was a great evening.

Good food. Good drinks. Good service. Line was out the door upon arrival and had over an hour wait, however we were lucky enough to get a spot at the bar. I had their apple cinnamon old fashioned and was delicious. My wife opted for some local draft beer and she enjoyed it. We started with the trio sampler for... More

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.
