A dedicated staff who listens and goes above and beyond to make the atmosphere for your occasion perfect. The best Prime Rib I have ever tasted. The sides are made with incredible care for not just taste but presentation and creativity. The chef certainly is ahead of many others in talent I've encountered by far.

This restaurant is spectacular and the food was awesome. The manager and waitress was very attentive. The atmosphere was awesome also. I never knew this restaurant was there. Will surely make another reservation in the near future

Had the filet. Price was high - steak was below average. If you are going to charge 20% more, it should be amazing....

Love Bourbons 72.. We’re regulars.. they rarely disappoint! Frank, the maitre d / manager is awesome! Food is excellent and so is the atmosphere. Our only complaint is in the lounge/ bar area... service isn’t great in the bar. The service is excellent in the restaurant however. Totally recommend!

Frank and his crew are great . Frank always takes the time to stop and say hello and ask about your meal . His staff are friendly and all appear to enjoy there jobs.

We had z great experience with restaurant week. The prices were right to finally try Bourbon 72. The food was excellent and service was great. Our server Janelle was cute, friendly and very smiley. She was knowledgeable about the food and presented her self very well even as young as she is.
For me, I think the prices are to high for dinner, but if you want the experience then, a one time go is ok. It's a smokey casino and it's a bummer you have to walk through the casino to enter restaurant.

Great room, quiet, attentive server, no eating. Wines great and Pappy was a nice surprise as well. I had steak and wife had Hallibut and both were perfectly cooked. Appetizers and desserts were both worth the trip.

It was restaurant week in Traverse City and Bourbon 72 had great choices. We had the halibut and the seafood scampi. Both were excellent.

Accommodations we're great! Potatoes cold, carrots burnt, salmon good & steak gr8. Brothers onion soup disappointing
All bread, gooey, hardly any onions & broth. We we're given comps for dinner, so nothing was said about the food at the time.

It was a holiday night but SERIOUSLY $70 for an average size slice of prime rib? Going to Burbons has been a New Year tradition for about 5 years now. We left feeling it wasn't worth it this year and will not return next year.

Everyone was very good at their job. Very pleasant very professional. My steak was cook to perfection but. The cut of meat was poor. My wife’s gnocchi was overcooked then not pan fried well. Tasted great. Texturally horrible. Great presentation, poor execution.

Frank is always excellent. My steak was a bit overdone but graciously bought me a glass of wine as an apology. And while the steak was a bit overdone, the flavor was delicious. My husband had prime rib and said it was delicious.

I took my grandmother out for her 84th birthday. She had the walleye and I had the filet, both cooked perfectly. Our waitress did an amazing job. My grandmother said it was best meal and night she has had in a very long time, and I would have to agree. This is the perfect place for any occasion. High quality food for a price, but worth every dollar.

Very much enjoyed our dinner on Oct. 1st. Went again the next night for a light meal in the bar area - onion soup and a small plate. Just what we needed.
Thank you.

We always have a great dinner there and from a price point perspective they are 5 stars... We had the calamari (interesting spin with peppery and nuts), I couldn't finish the petite prime rib (and I'm a big eater) and it was delicious and tender as butter. The Brussels sprouts were outstanding. Drink size and pricing was better than average. I was too stuffed to do dessert. The servers and maitre d were very attentive without being over bearing.

It was fine, but it wasn't anything special. We ordered 2 New York strips and 1 risotto side to split (because the steaks come Ala Carte). We ordered a draft beer and a bottled cider. We paid $170 with tip. It was our anniversary and we were celebrating, they asked us about that at the reservation site but they never mentioned it during our dinner. It was just okay. Overpriced, and we didn't feel the food was outstanding to make it worth it. There was nothing to complain about, there was just nothing to be excited over.

I have recommended before. Prices seem a lot higher. Locals will have a hard time paying these prices.
