Rude and disrespectful staff. Horrible customer service. – If I could give this 0 stars, I would. "Eh" is not even close to how I feel about this place. I would not recommend Whiskey Girl for anyone to go to. And I would discourage anyone from giving this establishment any further business until management takes a closer look at how their employees are representing their business. Never mind the fact that there is a $10 cash cover charge and that they charge you $9.50 for a Washington Apple shot after the DJ announces they are $3. The fact that my friend and I were forcibly removed (I have visible marks on my arm and photographs of them) from the bathroom because "2 people can't be in the same stall." I can understand if we were trying to get it on or engaging in some illegal drug use, but no, she was in the middle of telling me a story and I stepped in the stall with her to continue listening. To subsequently be grabbed and physically pushed outside is completely unacceptable, unprofessional, and grounds for further investigation by management. It is apparent that Whiskey Girl staff believe they can treat customers without respect and forget that they are employed by a service industry. What's even more frustrating is that instead of focusing their time and energy on real problems, they chose to spend it on the 2 girls who went in the bathroom stall together. C'mon Whiskey Girl, maybe you should take a little more care when hiring your security staff and not just taking any riff-raff that applies. Remember, these people are who your customers interact with and what we remember and they aren't doing you much of a service. Once again, I will not be giving Whiskey Girl any repeat business and I am making a it a personal effort to discourage anyone else from patronizing this establishment.
Whiskey Girl Mistreats Customers! – My boyfriend and i stayed in san diego for our 2 year anniversary. We went horseback riding on the beach and had a wonderful experience! After a long day, we were starved and decided to go out for food and drinks. We chose whiskey girl because it was close to our hotel with no wait. We told them we intended to eat so the hostess sat us at a table further from the bar. The waitress immediately requested a credit card to hold as customers had a past history of bailing on bills. This should have been our first clue as to how our experience was going to end. As we were eating our food, the place became more and more packed. A couple cocktails in and halfway through our meal, security came up and offered us a box. My boyfriend said no thank you, we're still eating. The security then informed him we needed to move so he would bring us a box. My boyfriend explained that he must not understand; that his hostess had seated us at this table for our meal. At this time, the security informed us we were located on the dance floor and that if we refused to leave he would call the police. My boyfriend said that's fine, and in the meantime please find us a manager to speak to. The management arrived and he and my boyfriend went outside to discuss the situation in a quieter setting. The manager said we were getting kicked out and needed to leave immediately. What is wrong with this picture?! They seat us, we purchase plenty of food and alcohol, and then get "kicked out" after doing nothing wrong! It's no wonder they collect your credit card since they intend to prematurely remove you from the establishment. Take your money elsewhere! Whiskey girl can ruin an otherwise lovely evening out...
FUN FUN FUN – Showed up last weeked during a nursing conference and line was outrageous. Explained my plight to get my friend to karaoke for her first time while whe was outta town..NEx thing I know.. we were let in and the guys had to pay..... Long story short my friend did karakoke downstairs and it was a hit. then we moved up stairs and danced our butts off to the music. Nice mix of ne, old and everything in between....! I felt the staff ( bar tenders, bouncers, and restroom attendants all did an outstanding job keeping as much order as could be kept making the patrons feel safe and still providing the right kind of atmosphere to just let your hair down and have a great time!
Horrible customer service and managment. Go elsewhere! – Horrible management who treats customers like dirt. There are so many more options in Gaslamp. Spend your hard earned money where you will won't be treated like dirt. Hire new management at Whiskey Girl. We will boycott until you do!
Very slow service, slow bartenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Went there at 5 pm with the girls. We had one drink and burgers/salads. The waitress was sooooooooooo slow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ridiculous! They take your license at the beginning, which is wise because most people would probably just leave after waiting 40 minutes for the waitress to bring the check. Also, the waitress is lucky that an automatic 18% was added to the check for gratuity, because she didn't deserve anywhere close to that. Food was okay, and arrived before our drinks. The others ordered a beer. I ordered a neat whiskey, and it took 30 + minutes to arrive and it was not even close to a full shot. It took probably 20 minutes for us to eat and the rest of the time, we were waiting on the waitress or bartender. We arrived at 5 pm and we weren't able to leave until @ 6:40. Way toooooooooooo slooooooooowwwww!!!! Not worth it in my opinion, unless you have a lot of time to kill and don't mind paying $10 for a sip of whiskey, and I do mean a sip. Other bars on the street were sports bars and plenty had drink specials. Next time, we will try one of those.
I want my license back! – I wish I had read everyone's reviews before coming here. My license got confiscated because they couldn't tell if it was me or not. C'mon really?? I have short hair in my ID. Hair grows, fukkktard. I am way over past the drinking age. Get over it!! Then the jerkoff had to get a second opinion so he called his fat black friend over to take a look. Now this guy was RUDE. Just because you're big & black don't mean you're tough sh!t. I guess being a "bouncer" doesn't pay well. That explains the sour attitude. This place is total BS!! I hope it shuts down soon. You have been warned. STAY AWAY!
Harassing Bouncers and Manager! – No parking, expensive drinks, Fat ugly bouncers who sexually harass girls, a gay manager who thinks he is cool because he is 40 years old and still works at a bar for a living. This is by far the worst bar in gas lamp! If you go here expect large bills (Don't start a tab! They will run it up!), expect to sexually harassed by over weight ugly bouncers who need dental work, and expect to see a gay little manager who thinks he is cool.... Horrible Horrible Horrible! Cover charge too!
Do not go to this bar! *READ* – Do not go to this bar! They are not military friendly, their drinks are expensive, their bouncers think they are cops and are extremely harrassing... Horrible bar and I will never go again... I Strongly discourage going to this bar if you're looking to have a good time.... BEWARE!
Worst time ever – After going throw the line and paying a cover I was creeped out by this sleazy security guy who wouldn't stop hitting on me!!! yuck ... at least he got me a drink but will never return because of him
