American
Bosscat Kitchen & Libations perfectly meshes upscale and casual dining with an expansive whiskey selection and unique offering of American comfort food. It offers high energy, open spaced concepts to promote a lively dining experience. With the rustic industrial aesthetic, brick metal and barrels are prevalent in the space. One of its most coveted attractions is the famous whiskey room, that houses hundreds of whiskies from several countries. From high end whiskies like Pappy Van Winkle, to a shot of Jameson with a Coors Light, there is something here for everyone's taste; and Bosscat prides itself on being this type of environment. Each season new flavors and recipes are brought into the kitchen. The culture and staff are encouraged to foster the fun and unique dining experience they so strongly emulate. Bosscat is open all week for lunch and dinner. Happy hour is available on weekdays, and a fun, boozy brunch menu is available on Saturdays and Sundays.

    I was expecting a lot more from the food as their reviews on yelp are amazing…can’t say that about the food tho. The fruity pebbles French toast was disappointing. The breakfast burrito was terribly dry and the meat was as hard as a rock…the fries weren’t even good. Expensive food that was not worth it. Waste of money. Spent over $200

    The food was good. We all enjoyed our meals. It was very noisy, so we sat on the patio, which was less noisy, but still pretty loud. The prices were good and the service was okay. I was a pleasant brunch.

    We had 3 brunch dishes and they were all soso...nothing special. Maybe if you just stick to the traditional breakfast of benedicts and omelettes and master those instead of a menu with funky medicore foods it will serve your clientale better

    Overall fine. More of a place to see and be seen. I will say that the pork chop sandwich was really good. Very tasty. My fellow diners had the hamburger and gold medal chicken sandwich which they rated as average. The “fries” were a quartered unseasoned baked potato. Super heavy and meh. Very convenient to the airport. All-in-all - it was fine.

    It was okay. Drinks took a long time to get to the table. Apps were fast dinner was slow. Drinks weren’t anything special, I got a Blood Orange Paloma, tasted like a watered down no Orange Paloma. We were expecting great, we got OK.

    We frequent Bosscat regularly and it didn’t fail to please. We sat at the bar tonight and had the awesome Travis for our bartender. His cocktails are always spot on and he always makes me feel welcome. ( Definitely try their Bosscat cocktail. I have it every time. )

    They will not seat you unless half your party is present. I’m ok with this policy if they’re busy. I was there on a Friday at 630p and restaurant was only half full. Not a good policy if you’re only half full cause I probably would have had a couple drinks while waiting. Needless to say, I will not be back.

    Great food and a quiet early dinner during a 'hurricane'. Country bread starter outshined the meal itself. Chocolate espresso martini was delicious and packed a punch. Fried chicken sandwich was merely good in comparison. I can't honestly remember what my wife ordered--that martini was strong.

    Made a reservation with a buddy who was visiting from east coast. Went in for Saturday brunch to check out the place. Ordered avocado farm chop, smokehouse benedict, short rib chilaquiles, and monte cristo sandwich, and a beignets for a dessert. Food review Avocado farm chop - was light and refreshing, worth to order Smokehouse Benedict - was okay, bread was too much and pull pork was bit dry Short Rib Chilaquiles - short rib was decent Monte Cristo Sandwich - best part of the meal, it was perfect Beignets - Too dense, wish it was more fluffy Service review A piece of hair came out from an avocado farm chop, and notified the server. Server simply replaced my plate, instead of replacing the salad, which surprised me. After half of the meal, fly came to our table and sat on short rib chilaquiles. Called the server again, pointed out that fly was sitting on the food, she asked "What do you want me to do?" That's the question you ask your manager or supervisor, not a question you ask to your customer. It was very disappointing that restaurant looks very well developed, but poor experience by server destroys the experience. If the manager of the restaurant is checking this review out, we walked in on Saturday, August 19, 2023 at 1:45 pm :)

    Our server was great. I had the Ahi lettuce wraps and I felt it was a little over sauced, or not fresh enough.. like I couldn't taste the ahi...it was good but not great for that reason.

    Service, food, and the ambience were good. The only draw back is if you have a party of more than 12, you will have to book a private event which can be costly.

    Some coworkers and I, went out to dinner after a long seminar. We had to wait 5 minutes for our reserved table, but we’re accommodated immediately after sitting down. Great atmosphere, and wonderful people. We didn’t order a lot of food, but the few things we had were delicious. Bosscat Old Fashioned was tasty!

    We went for Happy Hour because it had good reviews. In our opinion, the HH drink menu was limited and the drinks were so-so, and there was hardly any meat in the short rib grilled cheese. Not sure if that's standard practice during happy hour, or just a fluke. I wouldn't recommend it for Happy Hour as a place to meet up.
