Such a fun food and drink experience! At first I was a bit intimidated by the sheer volume of choice but knowledgeable staff really took care of that! Great food and unbelievably great drinks- I can’t wait to go back!

Good spot for whisky as there are a rediculous amount of options. Was not impressed with my food choice. Had the Texas burger. Patty did not have that nice grill char on the outside. I upgraded my fries to poutine and ended up getting a smaller portion of fries than my friend who had a side of fries with their order. Maybe I should have tried another food item.

While the food was good it was very much so carb and protein based with nothing else to balance. Everything is served with huge bread and meat portions and that was about it. Tastes good but missing a meal balance with veggies or sides of some sort

Just found Fets through a google search and wasn't expecting it to be as fantastic as it was. Great food, nice atmosphere and good service. Definitely would not hesitate to recommend the place to anyone which is saying a lot since I don't like a lot of restaurants.

My husband and I went for brunch with my in-laws for my husband's birthday. We've been to Fets before for dinner on a few occasions and have been quite happy and satisfied with the food and drink and atmosphere. They, of course, have a stellar whiskey selection, and take reservations on Friday and Saturday nights, and for larger groups! On this occasion, for brunch, I ordered the bacon Benny, and my husband ordered the Andouille hash. They were both tasty, but we were both disappointed that the eggs were over-cooked. They didn't actually ask how we'd like them poached (soft, med, hard) and by my experience, when that's the case, they usually arrive soft - nice and runny so as to basically make a tasty egg sauce. The hard eggs were saved on the Benny by having a hollandaise sauce and some really delicious peppered bacon; the hash, however, being otherwise sauce-less was not nearly as good as it could have been were the eggs cooked less. The music playing for brunch was also notably quite loud - it was difficult to hear each other at times. All in all, we still liked it, and the service was good, but we'd definitely be sure to ask specifically for soft-poached eggs next time.

It was our first time and we went for Happy Hour. Though the menu items are limited for Happy Hour, the food that we ordered was delicious! We ordered the fish tacos and the corn fritters to share. We were a little hesitant about the corn fritters, neither of us liking spicy, but the spice was mild; the background of smoke adding a perfect contrast to the corn. They were delicious. We liked the fish taco so much that we ordered a second plate. We plan on going back to experiment with the rest of the menu.

The service was also excellent.

I was looking around for a good place to dine for a birthday celebration. Fets whisky kitchen popped up and I was hooked immediately! We arrived early and we were seated right away. I was amazed by the whiskey wall they had as well as the decor. The server was quick to get our drink orders and soon after our food. Drinks were fast and food was faster! We ordered the whiskey corn fritters to start and I had the stacked Texan. The fritters were great with just the right amount of spice. My burger was amazing! It was stuffed full of toppings but not so much that it became messy. Overall the food and experience was great and I will definitely be back again!
