Friends & I had dinner at Village Whiskey based on the recommendation of our hotel staff. We all enjoyed our burgers. They have a very good vegetarian burger & while their fries are regularly cooked in duck fat, they also prepare vegetarian fries which were delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I was told that they're known for their burger so I ordered one with blue cheese. I also ordered the duck fat fries. Their was a very long wait for my food, which I was later told was due to their computer system needing to be re-booted. The burger was good but not really exceptional. The duck fat fries were...

The atmosphere was comfortable. The service was great. I had the Whiskey special burger. It was big, tasty, fresh, and delicious. It was a bit expensive but the cost reflected the quality.

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
