Featuring a comprehensive selection of more than 200 whiskeys alongside what has been called the country’s best burger, Village Whiskey is an instant classic. Envisioned by Chef Garces as a spot where he and his team could enjoy a drink and a snack after a long night in the kitchen, the restaurant’s focal point is the central bar that is home to their near-encyclopedic catalogue of Chef Garces’ favorite spirit, whiskey. Our able bartenders shake and stir classic and contemporary cocktails in a space evocative of a Prohibition-era speakeasy.

    Imani was a fantastic server. She was so pleasant and attentive and made great suggestions including the old fashioned, burger of the month, and also getting the wings. Highly recommend and hope you get her as your server.

    Right off the bat greeted in such a friendly manner; everyone here was so attentive and genuinely kind! Happy hour specials on drinks and food 5-7 on weekends; great value. I loved the rose gold cocktail ! My boyfriend tried a whiskey flight and really enjoyed the experience. Steak frites & burger were excellent. Definitely returning (:

    Average food with even more mediocre service. It is really sad because we were returning after a power outage where we didn’t get the full experience so we were excited to come back. Unfortunately, service was very slow, 3 of the 4 entrees came out to only have the only one that wasn’t cooked come out ten minutes later. For the food - Popcorn shrimp: there was too much breading for how small of shrimps these were. The buffalo aioli was delicious though Fried pickles: the only restaurant to have done it right. Half slices that were fried so you didn’t lose all the breading after one bite (this too with the buffalo aioli for a nice kick). Highly recommend. Tater tots: they had an odd bbq/smokey flavor to them. The smoked onion crème fraiche was eh. Double smash burger: not special. It wasn’t bad just not wowing. Turkey smash burger: oddly good, but too much bread for the patty size Village burger: this is HEFTY. I mean a thick patty so be prepared. Juicy. Yummy. Recommend. Duck fat fries: didn’t taste any different than any other fries we’ve had. A little too thick for my taste. Smoked salmon BLT: DO NOT GET. The sourdough was too thick for the sandwich since there was barely anything in the middle. You barely get a SLICE of smoked salmon, so little that you’re maybe tasting a little bacon, and certainly mostly bread. Very disappointing. Overall, fine for an American pub night out, or for happy hour, but otherwise there are too many other great places in the city to go to.

    Just some tips to make this place great: Fix the lighting. It made the place feel unalive and unwelcoming in a big way. Illuminate the bar and get brighter warm hues in chandelier. Especially against bright of kitchen it looked like half the electricity was out! Think about seasoning food a bit better. Fries lacking flavor. Other dishes too. I think this place could be great—just needs some tweaking!

    Overall I think this is a very good place to have a burger. I only wish there was a little less salt in the food since I’m very sensitive to it. I had a turkey burger and it was delicious but it could’ve been a tad thicker. My dining partner had the ribs which he said were excellent. We asked for a side salad instead of french fries and the portion was very generous and the shrimp Louie dressing also very good. Our server was quite attentive and checked in with us many times. We also had the mocktails which were delicious.

    Best post-Broad Street Run food ever! Mandy was a wonderful server, and the food… beyond delicious. Get the fried egg in your burger and definitely the duck fat fries. Drink selection is off the hook. You can’t go wrong. Outside seating on a beautiful day tops off the experience.

    We were seated in the add-on space despite a reservation and perhaps that is why it took 45+ minutes to even PLACE our Order after seated. More than a half hour to even get a drink. Food was good but this trip was total disappointment.

    My daughter and I love the burgers and we have had them many a times!!!! My parents came to visit and they loved the food and drinks. We started with a few appetizers and moved on to the burgers. My father and I had a whiskey flights to finish off the night and my daughter and mother split a delicious dessert! Our bill was very reasonable and we will certainly be back!
