Hostess looked like she would've rather been getting a root canal than have been working. Food was mediocre at best and definitely nothing to write home about. Pulled pork nachos had very little pork on them and were smothered in sour cream. Food also took a little over an hour to get. Won't be back.

We were in Charlotte visiting my aunt in the hospital. I decided to take my mom and cousin to Whisky River since they are big NASCAR fans. It was a quiet Tuesday night and we enjoyed talking as we ate and drink. The waitress was friendly and took our order and kept our drinks full. Our food tasted good. My... More

Good pour but bad atmosphere. Surprised Dale Jr would keep his name on the place. Waitresses dressed like Hooters or Twin Peaks. Who wants to eat with someone's snatch hanging out.

I stopped at this really good restaurant for a quick hamburger, pepper fries and a coke and it was served quickly. The servers were excellent and the food was delicious.

Went to the Epicenter Whiskey River for dinner on Saturday night. Had a hamburger it was just OK. Service was slow but there was a good crowd. We went back on Sunday night giving them the benefit of the doubt, and the place was almost empty, however it took us 45 minutes to get our meal. I ordered a salad... More

Went there yesterday with two people in wheel chairs(5 people total). They were from out of town and had to have lunch experience at whiskey river. Big Dale Jr fans .The host was cold and rude and made absolutely no attempt to accommodate us into a wheel chair accessible table. We had to sit at a high top table that... More

We were there after attending a pep rally for the bowl game, so we knew it was going to be busy. I don't think management knew because there wasn't enough staff. We sat at a dirty table and waited for someone to clean it and ger our order. Nevr happened. We moved to a cleaner table and waited. After about... More

There is no other way'round it. This place is just plane awful. To stay with the cow leather motif the staff pile you in like cattle. Chairs sit side by side facing a narrow counter, then curved inward to provide even less room for the backs of the chairs such that frequently they wedge on each other. They have these... More

During a recent business conference, we attended three events (on three separate nights) at WR. Each night was enjoyable. The atmosphere was what you would expect from a place of its kind, but was at a notch above due to a friendly and helpful staff. Drinks and food were very good. The band that played on the third night was... More

Interesting bar. Servers were very attentive. Food was above average for a bar. Music was loud later on - college night just added to the entertainment
