The drinks are strong and delicious. The ambience is really fun but very loud and tables are very closely packed in. The food is hot and very tasty but very rich and high in grease and fat. Definitely not light fare. Overall really fun place to visit!

Wonderful front desk staff.. Justin was really helpful in handling our reservations and accomodating us. Food was amazing , we tried the bone marrow, fried oysters, Brussel sprouts, and chicken livers. Everything was good. Bone marrow and Brussel sprouts were outstanding. True to its name, they had a variety of Whiskey, and their cocktails was awesome too. My only suggestion would be to add some traditional appetizers to their menu, to make it welcoming for picky eaters too. Did I say their cocktails were amazing!!! :) a must-go place.

Food was great- staff was super attentive. Space was tight. Very hard to find if you don't know what you are looking for. Need a bigger/better sign.

Fun place to visit! Food was on the salty side. After seeing a dish the table next to ours had, we decided to order it & ours looked nothing like the table next to ours did (maybe the kitchen was slammed )

Menu changed and the old menu was better. In regards to the pork shank it used to come with this delicious green aoli sauce

What a great evening for a guys night out! The smoker was not working, so we couldn’t try the pig’s head, but we tried some great whiskeys and the food was delicious!

I love whiskey and I'm also on Keto. The staff easily accommodated my diet and served me a fantastic Old Fashion. Their whiskey selection is impressive. Had the brisket which just melted in my mouth. Would definitely go back.

Food and cocktails were great and reasonably priced. Server was very knowledgeable about the cocktails and their ingredients. Music was too loud to have a dinner conversation over. Since it was our anniversary it put a damper on our evening. If you want to converse with your partner over dinner this is not the place. Otherwise it deserves the 5 stars we gave it.

Loved the Brisket. It might have been a little early in the season to have so many windows open, but the staff closed some when asked.

Went here for the first time for my fiancé’s birthday. It was top notch, it’s a lively place! We were tucked into the corner which gave us a bit of privacy. Our food and drinks were excellent. The brisket was so tender and flavorful. They even suggested an off menu drink to make so my fiancé could have what he was craving. Not to mention that when booking I added a note for a candle with our dessert and they came through. We will be back for sure.

The real treasure of the day was when the servers gave me my coffee in a Macho Man Randy Savage mug, and later, an Ultimate Warrior mug.

Service was great, drinks were delicious. Food was really unremarkable, and since we were there for dinner with a friend from out of town, we were disappointed. The only good part of our meal was the brussels sprouts appetizer. The rest was bland, though huge portions. Seattle has way better food elsewhere.

Great place to have a meal if you are ever near the waterfront. I recommend you make a reservation. I usually attempt to eat at the bar in most places. Radiator Whiskey is a small place, with a small bar area that more than likely, won't have space available to eat there. Nice cocktail selection, staff is great, and the food is awesome. Two chefs in a small kitchen view-able from the dining room kick out a great product. Will go again..

Outstanding service from Abbey. Fabulous whiskey cocktails--I tried 3 and they were all terrific. Don't miss the smoked mushrooms or fried brussel sprouts. Also great brisket. When I am in Seattle, I never skip going to this place.

The bourbon margarita was amazing!! We had such a good time. It was intimate yet fun. Noise level made it feel like we were out having a good time but could still enjoy a conversation with just the two of us. We were very pleasantly surprised with the popcorn (went perfect with the margarita) and the chicken we shared was so good!! We’ll be back and we’ll bring friends!

Well, if you love hot spicy food and a loud noisy environment with an amazing whiskey list, Radiator Whiskey is for you. Definitely a place for a younger crowd right in the heart of Pikes Market.

Loved it! The food was outstanding and the atmosphere unique and fun. It's a small place and very popular so you need a reservation. I only wish there were a few more entrees to choose from on the menu, but the ones we ordered were delicious and I'd rather have quality food than a huge menu of options. I had the brisket and my boyfriend had the meatloaf sandwich. He had a beer and I had the cider which was nice and dry and crisp. The brisket was tender and I loved the arugula side. The sauce on the brisket was unlike any I've tasted. It's very noisy, so not great for a first date or if you're trying to catch up with an old friend! But otherwise the noise wouldn't bother me, it makes for a fun night out.
