          Tried the falafel on flatbread for the first time - loved it. Fried green tomatoes were terrific, as always. No matter what we try, its always great. Service on this particular occasion was lacking - server was very nice, but disappeared for quite awhile. Had to give food order to the host. Also took a long time to pay. Had to go back to the host stand and ask to pay the bill. Service is normally good, definitely atypical. Love Whiskey Cake, will definitely be back soon.

          We used to love WC. It used to be a staple place that we would eat at once a week and the kiddos always loved it there. We dropped in Sunday since we were close by and this please, within a matter of a few months has gone downhill drastically. Our server was awful. He was basically the human version of the “meh” emoji and hardly raised his voice enough to be heard. I thought I was going to just have to start guessing why he was back at our table. So weird. The hostess was rude, in a hurry and mumbled and ran from the table before I could even ask for a menu. She never returned when I found her again and our waiter had to go get some. The food has jumped in price (I am aware everything has), but geez, the quality has done the opposite. My salad lettuce/spinach was far from fresh, they topped it with half a chicken tender cut into a few pieces and the dressing was like a vinegar tainted water with a bit of cream and pepper it it. It was gross to say the least. My daughters Mac and cheese was obviously made earlier and reheated and she proclaimed “this is dry and can I ask for some seasoning to add to it?!” We left and saw the hostess sitting down playing on a phone with someone only to have her glance up and say “bye bye”. So weird. Bottom line, such a disappointment and such high prices. We used to enjoy the atmosphere, but the servers seem to care less anymore and management appears to be slacking. The food quality must be okay for some, but we won’t be returning. It’s s sad they unless you go to a fine dining restaurant, you’re not only overpaying but getting awful food and service. Might as well go somewhere, spend more money and have a better experience and great food.

          Mother's Day. The weather was great for outdoor dining. We were seated promptly. The service was a bit slow, but the orders were well prepared. I left with all 5s but my gayer said when o was inquiring about purchasing the candles the servers were rolling their eyes. She's 8 and she wanted to know if that was professional behavior. Idk, you decide.

          We had to wait 30 minutes even with a reservation. The servers were slow to offer water and drinks. We ordered “local board” and deviled eggs as appetizers. Appetizers didn’t show up until entrees were served and we reminded the server about the appetizers. The “board” selection was sparse with small portions of offered items. Not up to the usual standards. We were disappointed with the entire experience.

          I found the entre list a bit limited. Ok and diverse enough to satisfy the 7 people at my table and we all ordered something different. If you want to get better, expand the entre offering.

          Great experience. Everyone loves their food. Small issue when someone ordered pancakes and then asked to have no fruit he was told the order already went in, presumably from handheld device. We got order and fruit was fairly infused in pancakes so had to get them RE prepared. Not a big deal but no reason the first order couldn’t have been modified 30 seconds after ordering. He loves them when he got them though.

          We were new to the area…vacationing for a few weeks and looked on TripAdvisor for some recommendations for the area and this place was on the list as being a very good place to eat. We had excellent service from Zaida as well as a personal visit from the manager Jay. Our food was very good…I had the three little pigs and my husband had the ribeye….and then the manager treated us to the namesake of the restaurant…the whiskey cake. That alone would be a huge reason for our return since I’m all about sweets…. But, we’ll also definitely return because of the tastiness of our main entrees and the wonderful, friendly service we received! So if good food, great service, and nice ambiance is your thing….you won’t be disappointed.

          The only vegetarian entree was unavailable which is a bummer because my wife and I are vegetarians. I got one of the salads and it was good but it wasn’t what I really wanted to be honest. I don’t expect a restaurant like this to have a million options for us but if you’re only going to have 1 entree, they need to make sure it’s available.

          The food was just OK, serving sizes were decent, prices were in my opine too high, even inflation adjusted ;-). Service was attentive but a bit in your face and abrasive lacking the ability to "read" the table, but the perhaps was just our server. All in all I would give it a rating of 5 out of 10.

          Vicki our waitress was outstanding. She really made our evening! Food was good and the Whiskey Cake is to die for! I always have a good experience here but this visit was by far the best. A perfect spot to get caught up with my best girlfriends.
