Southern
Great barbecue and chef pride go hand-in-hand. And we have both. Our southern-inspired menu has the classic recipes that you crave, and the perfect twist on traditional dishes that are sure to satisfy. Taste our Bourbon Glazed Salmon and Bacon Wrapped Smoked Meatloaf. Or check out our signature Louisiana dishes including Jambalaya or Shrimp and Grits. Our meats are smoked in our Ole Hickory Pit Smoker and everything in between is made in our scratch kitchen. Our rubs and sauces are all our own recipe. Incredible smoked meats and great bourbons are what we're made of.

    To begin with, we are Gainesville natives and have tried every restaurant in the area. We decided to try Bourbon Brother's advertised Sunday Brunch as our usual "go to" place was becoming monotonous. We were excited to try as we had heard positive things about dinner. We were, however, VERY disappointed with the brunch. To say that it was the worst brunch we have had in a long while would be an understatement. It was a buffet with an omelet station. We also order eggs benedict from the kitchen. The chicken tenders "looked" good but were NOT white meat tenders (bad). The bacon was very fatty. The biscuits were actually good but the gravy was very bland and "out of a can" with essentially no flavor. The omelets were undercooked and the ham was "chewy". The eggs benedict was on a "cheap" thin muffin with the "Canadian" bacon very uninviting. We tried to enjoy the whole experience but it was honestly horrible. The cost was $34/person. We will NOT be back for another try for brunch. I'm also sorry that my desire to try lunch or dinner at Bourbon Brothers has also been spoiled by this Brunch experience. We were hoping for a nice experience and a new "go to" for brunch. We were VERY disappointed.

    Beautiful atmosphere and great place to lounge and hang out for a few drinks. Food was just ok. Also, we had a 730 reservation and were not sat at a table until 815. They said the kitchen was backed up and they were not seating anyone until they caught up. I would go back for drinks and to enjoy the beautiful fire pits, but not for the food.

    Enjoyed the bacon wrapped meatloaf. My daughter got a pulled chicken plate and to be honest it was the worst tasting bbq pulled chicken any of us have ever had. The texture and taste was so bad that I had to share my meal with her. 😞

We loved the atmosphere! and we will definitely be back! 2 thumbs up and 5 stars for BOURBON BROTHERS in Gainesville, GA! #BEST PLACE EVER! #LOVE IT!

    We went for date night just to try somewhere new in the area. Food was delicious! I ordered the buffalo chicken sandwich and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich! Both very tasty! Look forward to visiting when it gets a little warmer to utilize the great outdoor patio space!

    Most of our food was good. Some issues with how long it took to place orders and for food to arrive. Barbecue was not very good and was disappointing. Chicken fried steak and pork chop was good. Chopped steak was just OK.

    Your pulled pork was very very salty and sent it back. Did not get it replaced. Did enjoy the ribs. The manager was gracious and did take it off our bill. The DJ was good but way too loud for dining pleasure. Could not hear each other talk! I don’t know how to fix that but not really enjoyable for us senior citizens.

    The restaurant was very clean and welcoming. The food was very good, but the prices were a bit high for the value of the food. Service was very good, appetizer came out quickly, but the entrees came out rather slowly even though the restaurant was not super busy. Would return another time to try other menu selections.

    We loved our first visit to BB Smokehouse and Tavern. The brisket from The Pit was delicious, and our greeters at the door and our server were so very nice and made us feel welcome. Service was quick and with a smile! The booth we sat in was very comfortable. The only negative is that we sat right next to the bar where there was loud talking from the bar and the breaking of bottles (?) which was jarring. I'd ask to sit away from the bar if possible. We will return and bring friends!

    Great atmosphere! Food was delicious & reasonably priced. Waitress said bar was “backed up” on drinks & may take awhile; when drink arrived, ice had melted so much you couldn’t taste the alcohol 😏Ordered an APPETIZER….it came WITH the meal 😡. Table not far from us was able to get their APPETIZER & drinks in a timely manner. Also, noted in my reservation comments that we were celebrating a birthday….no mention whatsoever! 😡

    My wife and I came up to spend Thanksgiving with her mother and decided to eat dinner here. The brisket is outstanding, appetizers and dessert were wonderful as well as a huge selection of Bourbons with awesome old fashions. They also have live music and a venue for it.
