My husband and I decided to try Whiskey Kitchen for our date night. We walked in around 6:30pm on a Saturday evening which is right before their Saturday night rush. It was already fairly crowded so we decided to sit at the bar where we were promptly served and our waitress was fantastic she talked us through the different whiskeys and specialty drinks. We ordered Vodka Tonics with a twist of lime, Bloody Mary’s, local brews, and little surprise our fantastic bartender whipped up called a Pickle Back.
What to eat?
We started out with the hand-breaded Calamari served with fried pickles and smoked tomato dipping sauce next we had the classic tavern style buffalo wings which were fried to perfection. The food was fantastic! Both the Calamari and the buffalo wings were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The buffalo wings came with a side of Mac n Cheese which was extra creamy and cheesy. My only complaint would be that it could have used a little more buffalo sauce on the wings. It also came with a side of ranch dressing, the dressing was really good, not too runny or too thick and not too tangy either…it was perfect.
For our entrée, we decided to share the Makers Mark BBQ Chicken brick oven pizza. The pizza toppings included apple butter, grilled onions, aged cheddar, and Makers Mark Bourbon BBQ sauce. My husband was lost in all of the other flavors of the pizza and the crust was extra thin and crispy just the way we like our pizza.
Overall, the service was really great, our bartender was friendly and attentive, the food and drinks were really good and favorable and my husband and I will definitely return for another date night.
