Had a short wait for a seat but the food was terrific. Had the Whiskey King burger with the Foie Gras, expensive but awesome. And the duck fat fries are to die for.

I called in advance and asked if they take reservations and was told no. Asked if it was a family friendly establishment and was told yes. Went there with a hungry 7 year old only to be told there is an hour and a half wait... you should train your staff to answer honestly and not try to bring people... More

If you're on the hunt for a good burger, you won't be disappointed by the food here, but don't miss Shake Shack across Sansom Street. Better value, friendlier staff, and no attitude from the people at the reception desk.

The menu here is impressive - it has everything indulgent you could imagine from fried pickles, to alcoholic milkshakes (the smores one is the best), chicken and waffles, duck fat fries with short ribs on top, and a burger made with foie gois, bacon, and gruyere. I was so excited to sit down here for brunch with so many delicious... More

I had been wanting to try Village Whiskey for a couple months and finally had the chance. The atmosphere is exactly what from a good whiskey bar, comfortable, crowded and active. We visited during lunch and there never seemed to be an empty bar stool or table during the hour and a half that we were there and most of... More

The best burger ever! We came in town for the day and made a bee line here to try the burgers. We were not disappointed! Great service too.

Saw this place on The Food Network show Burgers, Brew and Que. Amazing burgers. Great beer and whisky selection. Will definitely go back. It was pricy but let's be realistic....it's a boutique restaurant in downtown Philly. You want a cheap burger? Find a McDonalds. If you want a great dining experience in a hip cool establishment, that you will tell... More

This place is a fun smallish local spot. It has good food and a fantastic selection of whiskey and other spirits like the name would imply. The people at the bar were friendly and the bartender knowledgeable. I will definitely make a return trip.

I had heard so much about Village Whiskey and was very excited to try it. I was disappointed however. Nothing really wowed me. I had a burger and their "famous" fries and both were pedestrian. I'm glad I went but won't be back

I wanted a burger for my birthday and it was a no brainer choosing Village Whiskey! I tend to visit Village Whiskey mid afternoons- late lunch so it's a nice crowd- usually no waiting for seats at tables or at the bar at that time. burger options are perfection as well as an enticing array of specialty cocktails that never...
