Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Not only did we remodel the bar we remodeled our food as well. Now featuring a variety of high end small plates, salumi’s and cheese’s, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. Our food offerings promise to tantalize all tastes and pair well with our signature cocktails. Bourbon House is a great place to get a pint with lunch, to unwind after work with the crew and a bourbon on the rocks, or to party into the night with your closest or newest friends and the coldest beer downtown. Ten draft beers, 44 bottles of beer on the wall, and 12 wines by the glass should keep everybody happy. Yes, we are famous for our Pickle Back shots (ask your server), but if you fancy a Hamm’s, well we have a 16oz Tall Boy for only 3 bucks. Our house whiskeys, Jameson and Makers Mark, are incredibly only 4 bucks. And of course, with 150 different spirits at their fingertips, our talented bartenders can make anything to satisfy your taste buds. Must be 21 or oler to dine at

Good service and if you want a great old fashioned, this is the place. Food was delicious, but the menu they had given us to order from was quite misleading. After serval attempts ordering something from the menu and being told they were out of it, we found something they did have. I asked if they had supply chain issues, which would be understandable. However, we were told no, that it was because they changed the menu. If that's the case, then actually change the menu, or at least take a black sharpie to the one you give customers to save some frustration when ordering.

I heard great things, but was a little disappointed with the food we ordered. I ordered the carnitas tacos, husband ordered steak frites. Overpriced for the quality. Theme of restaurant was fun. I don’t think we plan on returning though

We always like to eat at local restaurants, especially when we are traveling to new cities. I booked this reservation for dinner on a weeknight for an early meal. I loved the ambience and the feel of the location, a little dark being that it was in the basement of Walker Center (but I understand they are relocating soon). We were seated immediately and had a great overall experience. I ordered the Chicken Carbonara and my husband ordered the Shrimp and Grits. Both were delicious! The portions were good-sized with reasonable prices. Drinks were also mixed well (I ordered wine); my husband ordered an old fashioned. My only disappointment is that we didn’t get to stay for any jazz music…..after a full day of sight seeing, we were plain exhausted. Great experience though

Had high hopes that Bourbon House would be a good bar and craft food, sadly bar was extremely slow and didn’t know how to make dirty vodka martinis and argued with us on how to make a vodka martini, when the person who ordered it has owned their own bar and restaurant! Food was less than ok, one of the people in our party found a hair at the end of the meal and another had a overcooked underwhelming burger. The Bourbon House’s ambiance was very neat, but sadly the lack of service and quality control leaves us with a sour taste and not likely to return. Hopefully management can turn around the Bar and Kitchen to reach the level of the places unique atmosphere.

Great cocktail selection. Not very good wine selections. Food was “comfort” type food. Steak and burgers were above average. Chicken and fries tasted previously frozen. Overall would give a 5/10 for food, but speakeasy ambiance was cool and again, cocktails were very good.

Food and service was fine. Various drink options. Friendly service. Hardly any other diners for 7p on a Friday. We were in a room with 4 tables and a big bar. No other diners. Way too boring and quiet for me. I enjoy some crowd energy.

It was an excellent experience for all four of us. We can't say enough good comments on the food and service. We were so pleased to find the restaurant after walking from the Eccles Theater. However, this being our first time, while walking down on a dark stairway, I was thinking if this was a good idea after all. We made sure that we brought this up to one of the staff's attention and recommend more lighting at the stairways to avoid any future law suit. Good thing tho', we found out that they are moving to a different location. Our party had shrimp and grits, bourbon house burger, carnitas tacos and braised short ribs and they are all to die for. We'll definitely be back after they move to the new location.

Wonderful welcoming service. Fabulous food. We asked about tasting a bourbon from their extensive menu, the manager brought over a tray of bourbons, explaing their taste and characters. We chose one, (his favorite). He brought it to the table explained about a few drops of water to smooth it out. Fabulous! Waiter was exceptional. Thank you!
