I love Whiskey Cake - both the dessert and the restaurant where I first enjoyed it. After I had lunch there for the first time several years ago, I knew I had to come back with Kelly.
It's just a shame that it took four years to find a time to go together!
The menu changes seasonally:
But it always features delicious cocktails.
We ordered fried green tomatoes and mesquite-grilled mussels as our appetizer. Both were delicious but Kelly and I agreed that we'd happily order the mussels again, but add a salad to make it a stand-alone meal.
We split the OMG Burger - Onions, Mushrooms and Goodness. They brought it to us on separate plates, very convenient. The house-made potato chips were amazing.
We finished with an order of whiskey cake - get the whipped cream on the side and dab the amount you want as you go.
In case you're wondering, it tastes like this. (This is a very happy satisfied over-the-moon face.)
We also had a bit of fun with the general manager, Tanner, comparing a couple of bottles of classic whiskey. The Colonel Taylor is surprisingly excellent!
Tanner, you're excellent.
At this rate, we almost missed our movie. Almost, not quite.
Speaking of excellent, our server Chad was great. Ask for him when you go in for brunch, lunch or dinner. He knows the menu inside and out and is just a really nice guy.
Kelly couldn't believe we waited so long to go for dinner. It's now on our rotation of places to enjoy around town!
