Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews
This is our third time going to Gamlin. ...
This is our third time going to Gamlin. Every time, we've had exceptional service, and the food is fantastic. This past time we went for my husband's birthday, and the food, drinks, service and ambiance were perfect- he even got a whiskey shooter as a birthday gift!

The hostess was not very accommodating. Wanted to seat us facing bathrooms when many other tables open. Salads and entrees served on top of each other. Beef medallions over cooked. Waiter comped our coffee for troubles but never even offered refills. Not sure if we'll return

They have a good overall menu. Flash fried spinach is one of my favorites however it was EXTREMELY salty. I couldn't finish it - waist of money. One of my guest was charged for ice in her drink and not given the option when she ordered, she didn't know until the bill. The waitress wasn't very empathetic about the situation at all. Every month our group goes to a different restaurant and we rate them after dinner. We rated our overall experience at the Gamlin Whiskey House a 4 out of 10. Unfortunately will probably make our "revisit" list.

The menu had several outstanding choices, and the four of us were very well pleased with our selections. The same was true of our drinks. Service was courteous and quick. Prices were a wee bit steep, but well worth it for Father's Day. We will return for another special occasion.
Loved it! We'll be back!
Scallops - wonderful (she felt the couscous ...or risotto maybe??...was rich, but a little salty)
Filet - tender; great flavor
Lobster/Filet - great reviews here
3 Little Pigs Bacon App (yum!) - everyone loved this app
Flourless Chocolate Cake (woah!)
Great brunch spot!
This was my first time here and I enjoyed it! I ordered the chicken and waffles and my husband ordered the shrimp and grits. The shrimp and grits were great and the chicken and waffles were good, considering the chicken needed a little more seasoning. We will be back.
Quiet Anniversary Dinner....Not here.
Fun place for a group. not an anniversary dinner. Requested window seat and we were given one in the walkway from the bar to the restaurant. Traffic non-stop. Fun place for a group of friends though. Food was outstanding and our waiter was very nice. Just not the ambiance I hoped for or expected, especially with the prices you pay for the meals. Upscale food but not the upscale experience.
Cool place but the food was marginal. ...
Cool place but the food was marginal. Both had the Pasta. One over cooked and the other, the squid ink pasta, was hard and undercooked. Sauces were greasy.
Waitress was pleasant and great. I would stick with just the whiskey at the whiskey house!
Great Steakhouse with a Whiskey theme.
I had one of the best "steak and potatoes" meals I have had in ages. My friends loved a Cajan fish dish. Great menu! The staff is efficient and pleasant. The whiskey flights were a big hit, and the bartender satisfied some picky cocktail drinkers. The only drawback was background music that was a bit too loud—at least for the tables in our nook.
Great food and service!
Avoided for a bit because of the menu prices ($10-20 appetizers and $25-40 entrees). Service and patio/restaurant were both awesome! Happy hour is really good too! BEST CRAB CAKES EVER! They are huge, like 90% crab, with amazing sauce! The entrees were good too but we couldn't stop talking about and thinking about the crab cakes. Going back very soon just for them. Server was very knowledgable about the whiskey and wine list.
I have to say the food was good and our waitress was very sweet. But we no sooner had our wine delivered then immediately the salad came and in 30 seconds our dinners were served.
And then the potatoes were cold which she rectified immediately. There really should be some time between drinks, salad and dinner. And this was a Friday evening.
Absolutely perfect Easter Brunch!
We went to Gamlins for brunch on Easter. They serve a regular brunch menu with a wonderful selection of sweet and savory. Fresh OJ in my mamosa. The food is great. Among our party's entrees... Amazing shrimp & grits, Chicken & waffles, Prime Rib & Eggs. Each one hot, fresh, with very different flavors. The service was friendly and wonderful in a nice laid back atmosphere. And it did not cost near as much as some of the pricey "wait-in-line for okay food" brunches we have been to. Going to go back and try happy hour next time!
Pricey for the quality
The food overall is good here, but the price tag that goes with it is very high. We ordered a couple apps, the first being toasted rav for $15. We got five of them...maybe the rest fell off en route. We also ordered the "pig" wings, in which we received four, also $15. We followed up apps with dinner, in which we all ordered steaks. Out of the five, only one was cooked as ordered. For a ~$40 steak, I would expect it to be cooked medium rare when ordered, not medium well. Big difference when you can barely see a glimmer of pink and a nice pink core. The flavors were all very good, including the steak, but they were simply overdone. At the prices on the menu, you could go to a nicer steak house, pay a couple bucks more, and have an outstanding steak.
Good food, Great Service, fun spot
We have a group that meets for lunch monthly and it was our turn to pick the spot and treat our friends. We have hit many of the big name places around town, but none provided this level of service and sumptuous food and drink. Gamlin is known for it's whiskey based cocktails, so we sampled several of their classic drinks and shared them about. All were fantastic, especially their Sazerac cocktail and the whiskey sours. I usually find the sour mix to be overbearing elsewhere, in Gamlin's drink there was just the right amount of citrus tang but the liquor was not overwhelmed. Awesome. The food was spectacular. We had sandwiches, short rib sliders, three takes on thick house-cured bacon, salads, and two lovely desserts for sharing. We left wishing we could have sampled more items, so another trip is a certainty. Our waiter, Tim, who may be one of the best in town, provided great recommendations and service while training a new server at the same time. He was really impressive.
