Amazing food!! Burgers, duck fat fries with cheese, pickled beets, clam bake are some of our favorites. Small with tight seating but really cool atmosphere. Great whiskey selection. Bloody Mary was disappointing. Expensive and small. Should have tried a whiskey drink instead.

One of the best burgers I have ever had. Simple but very tasty. Duck fat fries are a must! Slightly more expensive than I thought it would be not didn't break the bank.

A quaint, corner hole in the wall, Village Whiskey is a hot commodity on a Friday night. With ample bar seating, minimal stand-up counter space, and only seven tables, be sure to stop in early in the evening. After miscommunication with the hostess, we were seated in the dimly-lit restaurant following an hour and fifteen minute wait (which was occupied at neighboring sister restaurant Tinto). I delighted in the Pimms Cup cocktail, which would be best seved by the gallon on the beach - refreshing, light, and quite tasty. After pointing it out to him, Jordan ordered the Highland Flip, a scotch, Drambuie, egg white, and porter cocktail, which was perfect for the fall evening and was very enjoyable in its lightly sweet frothiness. The beer menu mirrored Tinto's beer menu (a local black IPA, Lagunitas, a PBC ale, and a seasonal beer). The whiskey menu was rather extensive and included offerings of whiskey flights (three 1 oz. tastings for $30-35). As someone who doesn't regularly drink whiskey, I would have benefitted from a more descriptive whiskey menu. While we waited for our entrées, we had the deviled eggs: 3 halves for $3, reasonable pricing, but the eggs weren't anything particularly special- slightly grainy and bland yolks. The entrées arrived and looked divine! I really enjoyed the chicken sandwich. The crusty and soft baguette roll, melted provolone, seasoned meat, and spicy peppers made for a winning combination. Faro chips served on the side were a pleasant surprise. Though it wasn't huge, the sandwich was sizeable enough that I only ate half. Jordan's house burger, though cooked properly, was just an average burger served on a brioche bun, albeit perhaps a little too greasy. Our server, Stefan, was very attentive and upsold Jordan on the provolone cheese add-on- an additional $2.50. The burger was served with a pickle spear and was overall a little disappointing in it's taste and value.

Best burger in center city philadelphia. Ask for the village whiskey burger. Also would recommend trying their french fries.

Update -- Sadly I will not be returning to Village Whiskey. From the Philadelphia Inquirer: "[Jose Garces' Village Whiskey] had more risk factors for foodborne illness than 99 percent of establishments inspected in 2014. [...] Seven inspections in a row at [Village Whiskey] found multiple serious violations, such as a food-prep employee's working with a cut finger, raw meat stored over produce, and egg salad held at temperatures hospitable to microbes."

Friendly staff, and limited, but delicious menu. The whiskey list is long, which is nice and there are also a few cocktails available here. The negroni was very nice and the burger was very good, yet oily and messy. The duck fat fries were good but not anything to go out of your way for.

Still one of the what burgers in Philly. The atmosphere is great. Seating can be a little tight, which means a wait time on the weekend for food or drinks. Staff is friendly and food usually comes out promptly.
