We found this place on Trip Advisor. We were in Richmond for the night and wanted someplace unique to have a couple of drinks with dinner. Little did we know that the whiskey menu would be 12 pages long. Our server who was also one of the bartenders gave us some great suggestions for unique manhattans. We had the brisket... More

You won't regret it! The food is great and the atmosphere is even better! Let the bartender make you something random. You will love it

Just go! I have been here twice and the Big Whiskey Grill once. I prefer this location and the food is out of this world. One of those places I put at the top of my list as best meals ever while traveling for business.

I went here with a friend to get some Pappy's 20 year. The Pappy's was great and the food was actually pretty good. The service was abysmal. We waited about 40 minutes for food. Once we got the food, we never saw our serer again until it was time to pay. We had to skip dessert due to time constraints.... More

Had a great meal with outstanding service. Their scotch and beer selection beats everywhere that I've seen in the city. The shrimp / bacon / artichoke dip really tasted great, though we wanted to save some room for entrees. I had the bison and chorizo meatloaf, which was awesome. Girlfriend had crab cakes, which also did very well. My only... More

We decided to try this place on a week night. We walked in and I'm not sure if some workers didn't come in, but the host was also our waiter who was also the bartender who was also the busboy. He was very hardworking and personable and made good drink and food recommendations. We really enjoyed the fried oyster appetizer... More

My husband, a friend of ours, and I went here for the first time recently during a slow time and had a great experience. We sat at the bar and talked to the bartender for most of the time we were there. He helped us pick some whiskeys to try by asking for a price range and what types we... More

Went to the one that they have opened at Regency Square Mall. Got there at 11:30 prior to a basketball game to meet with friends. Not much of a crowd when we got there, but if they do not get good crowds in the evening then surely they will at some point once word gets out. For lunch it is... More

Dropped in last night with a friend for dinner. Having recently started studying and appreciating bourbon, the selection was thrilling and overwhelming. The bartender (who also waited on us) was very knowledgeable and patient, and offered to pick based on some of my flavor preferences. He brought a bourbon I'd never heard of and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We had... More

Atmosphere nice, wait staff excellent, fried oysters and scallops perfect even tried a new whisky they suggested and really liked it. However, the main course was not enjoyable. Steak (ribeye) thin and over cooked. They offered to bring another but second time still not right, it was raw. Ribs under cooked and pink (had to recook them at home the... More
