It's restaurant week here in Traverse City, everything is smaller portions with a great price. Food was great-no complaints at all. Bourbon flight was a great addition to make the overall experience awesome.

went during restaurant week, special menu and special prices. looked at regular pricing, quite high. taste of food was fine, but nothing to write home about. desserts appeared to be 'out of distributor box', not home made.

The overall experience was acceptable. Menu and wine list was above average - food was very good. Unfortunately the service lacked attention and personality. We did not feel welcomed nor appreciated for being there. Technically the service was adequate.

THE RESTAURANT WEEK MENU SURPASSED ANY OF OUR EXPECTATIONS. DINNER AS ALWAYS WAS DELICIOUS AND THE DESSERTS WERE PHENOMINAL. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE RECIPE FOR THE CARROT CAKE, AS IT WAS WONDERFUL.

First of all, the bread appetizer is almost a meal in itself. A small baguette that is just short of European and is accompanied with whipped butter and a mixture of garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. If you leave enough room after your meal, you may want to order it for dessert. ;-)
Our meals were much to our likings and we had no complaints at all.
We plan on returning.

Our service was sub-par. Our server seemed like a great lady, but drinks were never refilled unless asked. We were asked if we wanted desert and then brought our bill and never asked what we would like to order off the desert menu although our wives both wanted to order. The food was good, but nothing near a Ruth Chris or Chop House level in Grand Rapids although the pricing was higher. We have it a chance and average is the best I would consider it. Defiantly will be going back to Red Ginger when we visit TC in the future.

This was our second visit to Bourbons 72 and we were not as impressed as we were our first visit.

It took 20 minutes to get our drinks (our waitress forgot them). When we asked for a wine suggestion between 2 of the red wines it was clear that she had no idea what she was talking about and instead of getting someone who had more knowledge, she uncomfortably fumbled her way through the descriptions. We also had to ask for several water refills.

The portions were huge. The last time we were here, everything was ale carte....which was nice after you have bread, soup, salad, and a main course.....an extra vegetable and starch was not necessary (and the most expensive part of the meal). The steaks were good and the surprisingly the least expensive part of our meal.

We did not have a great experience at this restaurant, the waitress did not know how to pour wine without spilling it, she forgot my husband’s beer almost every time he ordered one and our meat was terribly undercooked, when I asked for mine to be cooked a little bit more they brought it back very dark in color but it still extremely rare in the middle. It was an all-around bad dining experience with a very expensive bill.

Another fantastic meal with awesome service. Holly is the best. Well worth the money. Full menu with prime rib with house salad. With individual loaves of bread and garlic, balsamic and oil spread. Yummy. many great sides to choose from. With a creme brulee for dessert. Can't go wrong.

They were closed when we visited, so we weren't able to use our $100 food credit. What a shame that they don't roll that into the following month.

Another mouth watering steak dinner. Awesome meal. Service by Holly was impecable. Love this restrauant. Wish we could bring under age of 18 children in though. Don't know if this is because of covid or casino policy. Want to treat family to this wonderful place. I keep bragging to them how good it is. I will be talking about all the meals I have here forever; it is that good.

Granted it is in a casino, but that is clearly the atmosphere. It feels a little stale. The menu is not original in any way, and I would consider it overpriced, $17 for 4 shrimp. Pass. Nice to have a place that takes reservations, and our server was attentive, but unless you’re planning on spending the night at the casino afterwards I would find another location.
