At Whistle Britches, we’re all about chicken. In 2016, we had one thing in mind – serve the tastiest, juiciest and crunchiest bird in town. Our pickle brined bird, farm-fresh ingredients and soulful cooking will leave you wanting more. We believe comfort food never goes out of style. Our scratch kitchen is always baking fresh buttermilk biscuits and some of the best chicken sandwiches in town. Couple all that with a great local craft beer selection and inventive cocktails, you soon realize why we came up with the name Whistle Britches. We like to draw a lot of attention to ourselves, and we’re OK with that! So if you haven’t stopped in yet, what are you waiting for?

Second time to the restaurant and I will be back. I really like this place (food is really good and huge!) but it seemed they were understaffed for Sunday brunch. We had a reservation where I asked for a patio table, the host started to put us at a table right by the front door, inside. I asked to be on the patio, per reservation, and we were seated outside so all good. Then we waited. A manager came by and took drink orders for the waiter, and we waited some more for bar drinks. It took a while to get our order in but then when food came out it was really good. Also had to ask for condiments as S&P were not on the table. They had tables open but had people waiting outside on a 30+ minute wait.
It seemed someone maybe didn't show for work and everyone there was running hard but just not enough waitstaff. The atmosphere is great and since it was brunch, we were not in a huge hurry but just a bit frustrating. Add another person or two and everything would be 5 stars!

We were able to enjoy our dinner here for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. Amazing dinner and the service was even more so. The Yankee sandwich is amazing and the Mac n cheese was phenomenal. The Frose is AMAZING. just wish it had more of a berry flavor, still good tho. would could back again.

Food is great. Biscuits are always awesome! Wait staff is sometimes slow. If the room is as crowded as it usually is, highly recommend not keeping the music equally loud. Crazy. Pretty overwhelming experience, noise - wise.

Tasty and unique food choices. Really enjoyed all of our options. It was a little loud for us to enjoy any meaningful conversation but we were seated next to some rowdy brunch groups! (And they were having the fun brunch!) I wouldn’t let it deter you from visiting. Just be aware, it isn’t a quiet dining experience.

Our first visit, and everyone in our group was impressed. Most menu items do include fried chicken, but dont let it keep you from eating here. The appetizers were great, chicken and waffles were amazing.

Our food was great. Service was really good except for a hiccup in the timing of our appetizers and entrees. Great selection at the bar.

The Open Table reservation didn't work. Whistle Britches didn't have my reservation when we arrived and the hostess was not apologetic. She nonchalantly said the wait is only 20-25 minutes. Which actually turned out to be half an hour. There is no room to wait for a table. We had to take my 90 year old mother back to the car to sit down. If you want to ensure you have a reservation, just call the restaurant. The app doesn't work.

Small tables, itty bitty chairs, no place to park except across the street on freakin’ Preston Rd. Hardly any meat on the chicken. I’ve gotten meatier wings from Pizza Hut. Avoid this place!

Way too noisy. Silver chairs too narrow. Unusual breading on the chicken not to my taste. Slaw was very good and fried green tomatoes were also very good. Or server, Sophie, was excellent.

Service was great but the chicken appeared to have been cooked in old oil. The chicken was a dark brown rather than its usual light brown color.

This was our 2nd visit to Whistle Britches and this visit was equally great! The food was excellent: two members of our party ordered the chorizo hash and loved it. The carafe of mimosas was generous on the champagne. Our server, Sophie, was FABULOUS! She was attentive without being intrusive, as well as being friendly and knowledgeable. She even brought me a to-go cup of fresh syrup with my to-go box. Those little above and beyond service elements are much appreciated.

This is my neighborhood go to. All the staff is welcoming and the food is so delicious and never disappoints. Generally consider restaurant salads, no matter the price range, to be overpriced. Here they are inventive, are really green/no white stem filler and come in two sizes! Plus you can add 3-4 oz. of their brined chicken breast to make a hearty meal. With cooler weather, meatloaf is back on the dinner menu and it rivals Al Biernat's. M-F 4-7 there is a substantial happy hour nosh offering that will make you rethink ordering dinner. Creative bartenders; ask and you shall receive. Their biscuits are something to write home about. As is the chicken and waffle with jalapeno syrup. For you TV watching Foodies, a fav of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Attire is casual.

Love this place - the outdoor patio on a cold winter night - was absolutely comfortable and a bit quieter than the inside. Will definitely be back soon!

Whistle Britches has been a great addition to our neighborhood. The service is spectacular. So attentive - very unusual these days to have such wonderful service. The food is just plain yummy and the portions are HUGE. Easy to split. I highly recommend it for anyone. Very family friendly also. Has a really cool patio for spring, summer, fall.
