Contemporary American
Whiskey Cake is an award winning farm-to-table restaurant, offering signature New American comfort food with a farm-to-fork mission. The approachable menu locally sources as much as possible and will feature innovative appetizers, slow-cooked meats and freshly caught fish, along with the infamous whiskey cake for dessert.

The large central bar pays homage to great whiskeys with an expansive list of variations. A menu of cocktails features creative concoctions of local spirits with fresh ingredients, evocative of beverages served at a pre-prohibition bar experience.

The contemporary design of reclaimed architectural elements creates an environment that is comfortable and inviting, an ideal spot for dinner after a long workday or a lazy brunch on the weekends.

    It was a great atmosphere. Easily something my husband and I alone would enjoy or with friends, we had our daughter and it felt comfortable with her too. The service was good and good and drinks delicious. Definitely a new staple of ours.

    Even I did a reservation at 2.30, i had to wait 15 minutes, when I ordered, we wait 15 minutes for the deinks (beer and a juice) and more for the food. Since it was already 3pm, lunch time, i ordered a grain bowl, but it was already sold out, honestly ridiculous. My husband has chicken and wafle and the eggs had shell, and a tiny hair, I did not complain since alreay we were eating so whatever was already eaten. The quality is way low that it use to be. Also the person who controlled the music, it seems playing with it, the volume was up and down many times. I dont think Ill go for lunch/brunch/dinner again. Probably Ill go I week day for a drink only. Those are still good.

    I haven’t been here in a few years—the food was just okay and the drinks were not as I remember. And really not in the best way - we had drinks that were suggested to us by our server and he failed to mention they were really spicy with jalapeño infused spirits and would not replace them. We ended up get the drinks refunded. I had a Speak Easy Margarita with tasted like it was not mixed. It was okay. We also had a reservation that they didn’t honor. We had it originally for 6 and when we arrived there didn’t have a table ready for us. Two people ended up not coming so — only then were we seated. We waited for 30 minutes. We asked for an aioli if they had it—we got honey mustard. Then when they brought me my birthday cake we didn’t get utensils or plates. We had to steal them from the next table over. Our server was sitting at the bar in his phone. Ha. It was an interesting experience this time around for sure.

    First time in 5 years of living in Texas (not even TRH) that a restaurant got my husband's steak, medium rare right. And the Farm Bird is by far the best chicken dinner I've ever had.

    I made a reservation for my birthday for brunch. We were a party if 4. When my friend and I arrived, my two other friends had already been seated. They were waiting on a flight of mimosas when we got there. The flight didn’t come for at least another 10-15 minutes. The rest of us also ordered flights, but it took about the same time to get those as well. Mind you, no one has taken out order yet. Our order was probably not taken until about 30 minutes after we got there. We waited for our food another 30 minutes, probably. When we got out food, the biscuits were burnt and hard. The server did bring us new ones, but that also took a while. We asked for butter and honey and we had to wait for all of those things as well. We understand that it was busy, but there was no apology offered for the continuous waits on everything. A heads up would have been nice. Our reservation was at 11am and we didn’t leave until 2p because of how long we waited for everything. Yes, we stayed about 30 minutes after we finished our food to talk and catch up with our friends, but that was all. The rest of the time it was waiting for something. I do have to say our server was nice and very pleasant, but some communication would have gone a long way.

    The service was excellent, as were the drinks and whiskey cake. The food was good but not amazing. A good place for whiskey and other cocktail lovers to share appetizers but not for true foodies.

    Whiskey Cake - San AntonioResponded 3 days agoMelissae, I'm glad you loved the service. I'm confident that I have the best team in town! I'd love to invite you back out for one of our Chef Features or one of our monthly 5 Course Whiskey Paring Dinners! We try to really lean into the "chef-y-ness" of our team for those events and I'm certain we could change our mind!

    Seated at bar top table with children, super loud, took forever for food, table not routinely cleared, food just ok, server repeatedly forgot to bring our drinks. Total waste of $150 for poor experience and not great food. Also womens bathroom needed attention. I had to ask hostess for crayons and paper for my toddler…that should have been offered.

    We had a phenomenal experience. Everything from the hostess, the bartenders, the food and especially our server Mikey. He not only provided fantastic service, but was very knowledgeable of the menu items. Even the manager stopped by to check on us and did so throughout the restaurant for others. Top quality people, food, drinks and overall experience. Thank you for showing my friends from out of town how a restaurant should be run, and how San Antonio if one of the best locations for cuisine!

    Not my cup of tea. The food my wife and I ordered was pretty good except for her waffle. The couple with us did not like their food. The restaurant is good for what it does ,but not my normal type of food. I am meat and potatoes this was more veggies and organic. Also I have never been there but was made aware they constantly change their menu.

    Our server was overworked probably. But the service was terrible. I ordered deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes, received the eggs and candied bacon. One of my guests had started taking one of the eggs and they pulled the appetizers saying these weren’t mine. And I recognized that the bacon wasn’t mine, and we didn’t touch it. But to also take the eggs and give them to the other table to realize they already received there’s and these were in fact mine, that was weird, unsanitary and not okay. We had to ask about 2 appetizers, because they took forever to come. We asked for the fondue without olives and we got olives. One of my guests his first two choices in meals were sold out. And I get it, but to tell him like 20 mins apart? We ordered 2 pieces of cake, and got one. Hopefully we were only charged for one. We were so tired, we didn’t care at the end. We wanted out.
