Very disappointing,
We ate Lunch there 2 days before and Enjoyed it, definitely not on Sunday though, incredibly bad service, repeatedly asked for water by getting up and asking for it, had to ask for the honey and sauces, it was dropped on the table with no explanation on what they were, my guests had no clue what they were, the English muffin as hard as a hockey puck, I understand it’s a difficult time for all, however, this was sad
Just wanted to let you know

Salads were good. The fried chicken was better than the grilled chicken. Bloody Mary was not as shown on the menu. Apparently the deviled eggs dm chicken wing are only on it for brunch. That was a little disappointing.

Great family restaurant and place to grab a relaxed weekend brunch. WB has a full service bar, so you are only an order away from your favorite beverage.

During these covid times, this was a FANTASTIC place to have a great lunch in a safe environment. They have outdoor seating that is properly spaced, the entire staff wore masks, they had Q codes on the tables so you didn’t even have to touch a menu. And of course the chicken and waffles were excellent. Also, the strawberry mojito mimosa was to die for... and they were not skimpy on the alcohol. Bravo Whistlebritches for making the best of this situation. My girlfriends and I will see you again for brunch next month and each month going forward!

Not sure why but the service although not bad, was simply a miss tonight. Ordered a separate salad and it came with the entire meal. Had a biscuit with the love me tender and no jam or butter. Ordered the Yankee sandwich with coleslaw on the side, no coleslaw.
The food was good, but it seemed precooked because the order came out too fast and usually I cannot eat it immediately because it is too hot, but tonight not only could I eat it I could have held it in my hand.
I think this is just an off night for Whistle Britches because we have been there many many times, even during the restaurant COVID shutdown we still picked up to go. We love the place and I think the local governments are messing up their business keeping everyone scared of COVID.
Will I try them again? Yes, Yes Yes.
If you are reading this, try them! Support our local businesses and support WB because I know they are a great local to try!

Food and service was outstanding. We sat outside to avoid being inside due to covid 19... they had air on the patio that dropped the HOT North Dallas weather down by at least 10-15 degrees. Food and service was excellent! You must try the chicken and waffles and I don’t know anywhere in Dallas where you pay $15 for a carafe if mimosa and $0.50 refills for brunch. They will see us again for our next month ladies brunch.

Great food! Never disappointed, though I should know better than to "do" a grilled chicken sandwich where most everything is southern fried...and done well! It was a great grilled chicken sandwich, but not as good as their fried ones. On a separate visit, I have had the cobb salad, and I can honestly say it's the BEST cobb salad I've ever had. The pimiento cheese and pepper jelly appetizer is so good! Will continue to return to this wonderful place!

I ordered a fried chicken sandwich. My date ordered some other kind of chicken sandwich. Mine came with mayonnaise on it even though the menu didn't list that as an ingredient. Had to have it sent back and completely remade. Why on earth they would put mayonnaise on a BBQ sandwich is beyond me.

My date's sandwich was covered in a weird thousand island dressing. It looked terrible and she said it wasn't good. I don't understand why they put a mayonnaise based sauce on every BBQ dish. This isn't good.

My sandwich was OK after it was remade but nothing fantastic.

Ambience and food were good. Ordered Mimosas but the server brought an unopened bottle of sparkling, the juices on the side, but no glassware. We asked a hostess nearby to bring glasses figuring the server was too busy, but they never came. I ended up having to go inside to the bar to request that the bottle be opened and to get the glasses.

The food was really good - the biscuits are a must (ask for extra butter!). The menu on open table was not accurate to the actual menu... there is no salmon dip, no chargrilled salmon for the salad or the Caesar salad. Just an FYI! The restaurant was super cold but other than that we really enjoyed our meal!

Server was amazing and there were multiple people cleaning our empty plates and checking up on us. Will definitely be back in the future.

It was more casual than I expected. But we had good service. Food was good too. Wish they’d have salmon on the menu...or another grilled option for those of us who don’t eat fried food.
