    We were served after those that were seated and ordered after us (before the lights went out). The server was apologetic and tried to make us more comfortable while we waited.

    We had made reservations and were seated upon arrival. Someone came quickly to our table and took our drink order. Our meal was hot and delicious, and the portions were just right. We left full but not stuffed. Afterall, you couldn't leave any behind.

    Our experience at Bourbon 72 was quite disappointing. Service was extremely slow. Our server was not knowledgeable about the menu. Our drink order was wrong. Everything we ordered came out luke warm except for one side dish. Since the cocktail order was wrong, we decided to go with wine instead, but it didn't arrive until we were taking our last bites of dinner. The carrot cake dessert was tasteless. This restaurant needs an overhaul. Would not recommend.

    Everything was amazing but started off rocky when the waiter looked at my ID for 3 minutes flashing it in the light then asks me about my first name assuming it might be a fake ID. Which is offensive bc my first name is unusual but it’s my birth givin name. Other than that service was polite and food was amazing.

    Server Aaron had a terrible attitude. My wife had a hard time retrieving her ID from her wallet and his attitude completely changed after that. It appeared he did not believe we were celebrating our honeymoon as our last names are not currently the same and he studied my wife’s ID for several minutes as if it was fake, before finally deciding to serve us. He was rude during the rest of the night- dropping silverware on the table and reaching across the table. Several times we said “thank you” for whatever he was doing and he did not acknowledge us. To end the night, he walked around with my credit card for 7 minutes after swiping it. He served several tables in that time frame instead of returning my card. Food was slightly above average, not quite to par for the price. Service from Aaron was terrible, but appeared other servers were much more polite. Drove quite a ways out of the way to enjoy a nice dinner and was extremely disappointed. Will not be returning to this restaurant and will not suggest it to others. I am not one to complain and will always pay for my food/service, but this was a very disappointing experience.

    Visited this restaurant for our one year anniversary. The restaurant has a very awkward floor plan. Sitting in booth against the wall I felt as if I was staring at all the other guests eating. The worst part was the service, we waited for a solid 10 almost 15 minutes before a server even addressed our table or got us water. It ended up being someone who was not even supposed to be our server that finally came to take our order. He asked if we had been served yet and then started to introduce our server as she came our way and then she basically tossed us off on him. It was chaotic. It was not busy at the time and I do understand short staffing issues, however the price you still pay and as they rise, you expect at least decent service. Our server did end up doing an ok job the rest of the evening. But needless to say it was not smooth and we felt forgotten. Just before getting up to leave the server offered us a free dessert for the occasion and that was very nice. Food was great!

    Steak was cooked correctly but not very high quality cut for the ribeye I was expecting. Received very similar quality at Outback last week. Lobster bisque lacked in flavor and had no lobster in it at all. Bottom of the table was loose so every time we moved our feet it made a loud clash. Definitely a disappointing experience when I was trying to take my wife somewhere nice for our anniversary.
