The Pickled Truffled Cauliflower alone make this a must visit place. (See pic) Burgers are phenominal and the cocktails are some of the best in the city! It's not a place I'd bring kids and if you're coming for lunch, make reservations. Unfortunately there are...More

We stopped at Village Whiskey for an early dinner on a Saturday. My fiance got a burger, which he loved. I ordered the veggie burger since I don't eat meat. Unlike many other restaurants that simply serve frozen patties - this was made onsite. It...More

My husband is a whiskey connoisseur, so on our trip to USA we had a long list of bourbons to get through. Not only do they have a huge collection, the bar tenders know what they’re talking about! Great drinks, great guys. Can’t fault this...More

Stopped in on a rainy Friday night. We were told it would be a 15 minute wait and the next available table would be ours. After being ignored for approximately 20 minutes we were asked if we would like to sit at the bar. When...More

Came in with a friend for a drink after a conference. Very extensive list of whiskeys available. I opted for a Bulleit 10 year and then a house old fashioned. Great service and warm atmosphere.

Village Whisky is known for their decadent burger and Duck Fries. However the seating is either at a crowded bar or else in very uncomfortable small booths. Even if your party is only two the people in the next booth will be seated right alongside...More

Definitely not inside the small restaurant. I noticed outdoor seating, but not all restaurants allow smoking even in the outside area. I suggest you call or email them. They are very responsive to customers. We found the... More
