I stopped into this restaurant after a local bartender recommended to me. His exact words were "Go to whiskey creek if you wan't the best steak of your life." That was an understatement.

Four years ago was the first time that I are here with clients and it was memorable. Last night's meal for 5 was a far cry from 4 years ago.

If you like peanuts in the shell check this place out. Shells to the floor how fun Nice variety of food selection. Good drinks Really like the pepper gravy topping for the steaks. Could use it on the chicken if you wanted.

Whiskey Creek - great food - but, it is always freezing cold in the restaurant. Management keeps the AC on even when it is cold outside. Suggestion - bring a sweater or a jacket - you will need it to stay warm.
