The food was pretty average - nothing special. Part of my chicken burger was touch. Service was friendly and very satisfactory. Warm Saturday evening so noisy on The Drive sitting on the patio. Need more shade umbrellas or something.

Really delicious meal with a group of friends. Staff were really helpful with suggestions for whisky and bites to eat for a friend with dietary restrictions. Great buzz while still being able to have good conversation!

OpenTable reservation was quick and easy, no issues at all with a few late people. They were out of a few of my favourite whiskeys, good comfort food though. A little on the expense side!

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!

Best fried chicken around, think authentic Deep South. Lots of other tasty comfort foods on the menu. Didn’t try the whisky but there was an amazing selection and the service was great. So worth trying if you are in the area.

What a surprising little find on Commercial Drive.
Lots of Whiskey, I mean lots... Great even if you don't like whiskey....
Southern comfort food that was BIG, but not too heavy.
A little hip, a little cool, worth the visit.
Great staff.

Our table was ready when we arrived and our server greeted us right away. We asked about wine and she made a very good recommendation so we bought a bottle. She knew we were going to the theatre so our food arrived promptly . Everyone enjoyed their meals and the ambiance. We will definitely be eating here again.

Reserved a table for 4 through open table for 8pm on Friday night, and we got sat right away. The server was so friendly and always checking to see if we needed anything. The food took a while but tasted amazing! I'd rather wait a bit longer for good tasting stuff anyways. I ordered the Kentucky chicken burger with a poutine. Poutine I'd give 3 stars, but the burger made it. Cooked to perfection! The drinks (mojitos, sangrias) although normally on the sweeter side were a tad too strong for my liking, but perfect for those who like that or have a better tolerance. Recommend this spot and will return!

Went here for my birthday brunch. Was a little disappointed that we couldnt see the cool whisky wall as we were sat in a corner booth for our reso of 6 but it was nice and private. I had biscuits and gravy, comes with fried chicken. It was delicious but the chicken & french toast that my friend had looked even better. Our server was nice though the service was quite slow. Didn't seem that busy but they may have been short staffed. My meal was delayed by 10 mins after everyone else but they gave me a plate of bacon to make up for it. Overall a great place for brunch.

None of us even like whiskey but we loved this place and given the gigantic tomb of whiskey options and huge high wall library of whiskey, we wish we did. Excellent service, and fantastic menu. I had best jambalaya outside of NOLA. The ambience was rustic urban cozy and loved how it felt so different from most Vancouver venues. More what you’d find in NYC or Chicago.

So happy that this eatery takes reservations in the busy Commercial Drive corridor. Obviously a popular spot...it was very noisy but they say that Sunday Brunch is like that. Would return
