I went to Whiskey Kitchen on a Friday night with a friend and it was so much fun! It was fabulous! The menu is delicious. There is nothing on the menu that I would not suggest. The very knowledgeable server suggested the Chicken Pesto Pasta and it was perfect. I cleaned my plate. The Bloody Mary is my favorite drink.... More

Got into Whiskey Kitchen on the reference of Trip Advisor. Sat at the bar. Bar staff personable and efficient. Busy. Good pour's. Knowledge about menu. Ate at the bar. I had the Salmon and salad while my wife had the fish tacos. Great choices. Not rushed. Loud! Busy.

We kept hearing about this place when I visited last weekend. The whole restaurant was packed! And loudddddd. The bar tender was great at checking on us while we waited for a table. Ill be honest, I had a caesar salad and they aren't the easiest to review. It was okay but not life changing. The best thing was the... More

This place is obviously a local choice. I watched all kinds of business people walk in and have a drink about 5 to 530. Before you know what there was a buzz of activity all around. The bartender was meticulous in making the drinks. You could tell he took pride in his job. Love this place!!

Grilled chicken tacos were outstanding. We had a large party and everyone tried each others food and everything was good. Pair the New-Fashioned with any dinner menu item and your all set! Its a gem of a place in THE GULCH. Great atmosphere and waitress was accommodating to our large party with younger children which is a challenge when trying... More

My friends and I went here late Saturday night last weekend after seeing some music. We just wanted a nightcap or two and a snack, walked by and said to each other "why not?" Ambience is very loungy, service was good, drinks were just fine, and the nachos we ordered were decent. Just nothing special, so...

They have a decent selection, and a nice outdoor area... But that's about it. It's another bar in Nashville that can be loud at times and used to be nice.

My wife and I drove up to Nashville for a night downtown. Started out at Whiskey Kitchen on a recommendation of a friend. Food was great as were the drinks. Sat outside and it was a perfect kickoff for our date night.

Yes, the music was too loud. We sat in the outside area. Couldn't have a conversation with anyone who wasn't seated right next to us. In addition, the drinks weren't very good. I like to be able to taste the alcohol in my drink. Food was good. The shrimp and grits were very good. Service was very good as well.... More

Went here because we were downtown last few nights and wanted a change of pace. I wanted fried green tomatoes. They had and did not disappoint. 4 Served on a bed of spinach . They were very good. We also had the Ahi Tuna, perfect! The shrimp n' grits were good, I do not like over cooked shrimp. Came with... 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.
