According to Ben Williams, the owner of the eatery, Homewood is an ideal spot.

“We’ve had our eye on Homewood even before we opened the Hoover store,” Williams told Bham Now. “We love the Mountain Brook / Homewood area where they bump into one another. We’re really excited to be there and to be part of that community.”

Williams plans to open the new location in early summer. The menu will be similar to the one in Hoover, which includes American Wagyu ground beef burgers, hand cut fries, hot dogs, sandwiches and beer.

Liquor License Approved By Council

On Monday. May 8th, the Homewood City Council approved the restaurant’s liquor license, pending permits and approvals from the police and fire departments and administration.

“What has been so exciting the last several years has been the increase in traffic downtown in the evenings,” said Homewood City Councilor Jennifer Andress. “When I first moved to Homewood 21 years ago there was nothing going on after five o’clock at night. But now there is a very lively atmosphere downtown all over and it’s been very fun to watch that grow. This (Whiskey Foxtrot) sounds like it would be a perfect addition.”
