Decided to try here as it was close to where we were staying and it just happened to be a Tuesday! We didn't make a reservation and were told when we arrived it would be 45 min wait. No problem as there is a bar and outside terrace. We had a couple of drinks while chatting to some locals. The... More

We came here after a hockey game downtown and we were not disappointed! We were seated right away and our waitress was bubbly and fun! The whiskey drinks are a little pricey but we were traveling so we spluged! The pizza was great and we had enough to take home for lunch the next day!

We went here after a concert per a locals suggestion . Place was packed, took a hot minute to get a server. The BBQ pizza was spot on . Server never refilled drinks but made sure she added her 20% tip on the bill automatically 😳.

Absolutely fantastic and fun pick! Be mindful that it is walk in only so it is better to get there a bit earlier than you expect to start your meal. Wait times on weekends, including Friday, around 5- 8p can range from 45min to about 2 hours it would seem. Pro tips: DON'T DRIVE UBER haha Outdoors are very well... More

Very young crowd. We're middle age and felt we were the oldest. Food all looks great. Little pricey but well worth it. Bloody Mary's are the drink to have. Has a little kick to it. Our food tasted fabulous, their burger was delicious and juicy and the chicken poppers were very good also

This was a interesting bar. Was loud and busy, but was still nice. On Tuesdays they have buy one get one specials on their drinks. Definitely a nice surprise. We didn't eat there but saw what others ordered and it all looked delicious. It's is in a great area to be hopping over to other bars, can make for a... More

We were running late for a memorial service and were seated immediately. Our server understood and informed us of orders that could be served quickly. I cannot emphasize how pleased we were to be shown such kind consideration. And by the way, the meals were delicious.

The place had a hip kind of trendy atmosphere but in a good way, urban chic decor was nice. The service was good, very nice bartender who gave me some tips about the various neighborhoods. Now on the the good stuff. The food was great, had the pub cheese appetizer and the shrimp and grits. It was a tough choice... 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.
