Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Cullen and Matt were amazing. Great bartenders and amazing vibe. However, food? Much to be desired. The leg of lamb shawarma and the food overall, flavorless. I miss the old menu and the the food flat they used to serve. The outside area is nice...and i can appreciate wanting to elevate the menu bit this isn't it. Bring back the old menu and let me order wings. Just saying. But the bartenders? A1.More

We had a fantastic Friday evening at Whiskey Charlie. Truly, experiences like the one I had make me grateful and excited to know people who are excellent at their craft. Brendan is an artist, not just a bartender. To taste his drinks is to experience...one who perfected a decades long craft. Derek, who is as excellent as they come, also blessed us with beautifully crafted cocktails. We will most definitely be back. Hopefully there will be space for us at the bar, as it’s a very popular place! Cheers to Whiskey Charlie for getting this one right.More

My fiancé and I recently got engaged at the rooftop of Whisky Charlie's, and it was an unforgettable experience. Brendan, Mack, and the rest of the staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They went above and beyond to ensure that everything...was perfect for our special occasion. The rooftop setting was beautiful and had an awesome view of the Wharf. We highly recommend this bar for anyone looking for a great rooftop bar with great service and atmosphere.More

Definitely not the #1 place in the city. The food menu is a snack menu…so don’t come to eat. Drinks were good but we have been to many better places here. The view is what they are selling here. It’s pretty, but not worth the...lack of food. The service was very good, it’s seat yourself first come first served and they do NOT ever answer the phone. If you come and can’t get in, don’t worry there are plenty of places just as good and better for food along the warf.More

I think is would be a good spot in January; they have an indoor bar and seating with great views, and I believe they may have outdoor heaters on the patio.
