Could have saved $150 and went to Applebee’s. French onion soup was great As was the corn/Chile stuff. Steaks were just ok. Filet was cooked perfectly but had little flavor but priced mid range and fair. The ribeye was very disappointing for a $70 dollar steak. Very thin and basic, could have purchased five ribeyes at the local grocery store and every one would have been better. Staff was good and the waitress was excellent.
We had a 2115 reservation. It took at least 15 minutes for the server to take our drink order. We placed our food order as soon as he brought our drinks. We waited over an hour for our food to arrive at the table. We had very little contact with our server. He brought the bills shortly after we started eating making us feel rather rushed. There were three other tables with customers dining. Their waitstaff interaction was much more professional and the other waitstaff visited their tables several times to make sure everything was to satisfaction for their guests. My nephews Salmon was cold and my daughters filet mignon was way undercooked for medium. She is pregnant and she couldn’t have it cooked more because our waitstaff did not return to the table in a timely manner. The twice baked potato was inedible. My king crab pasta was good but not great. The server never asked if we wanted refills on our drinks, nor did he ask if anyone wanted desert. I love Bourbon 72! Prior to this experience, our meals have been amazing! I understand people have bad days, but this dining experience was one of the worst I’ve had in a very long time. Every other time we’ve dined at Bourbon 72, the service and meals have been excellent! Sorry for the bad review but I talk very highly about your Resturant to all my family and friends. This time I won’t be discussing it with anyone. Thank you.
Very overpriced for the area. Least flavorful fish and under seasoned I’ve had in the area. Would not recommend.
Very expensive for what the experience is.
Service was excellent. My wife's meal was very good, her steak was done as per request and was very flavorful. I ordered the filet mignon , expecting a superior cut of beef. What I got was undoubtedly the worst piece of meat I have ever been served in a restaurant. It was 40-50% fat and gristle and what meat was there was mediocre and somewhat tough. I was told other patrons had complained about that cut. Everything else was very good but somewhat pricey.
Everything was great. Service was excellent. Will go again.
We always enjoy eating at Bourbons 72. My husband loves the prime rib, I love the lobster tail, with crab cake appetizer!
I reserved a tall booth and we were directed to a table until I I asked for what was requested. It was very kind of the restaurant to provide a free dessert for my Mother’s 79th birthday. Food was delicious as usual.
Holli was such a wonderfully professional! Thank you for making Jerry’s bday special!
Steak was dry. Pretty nice besides tht
Delicious food...had the salmon and lobster pasta!! Loved the bread and beverages!!
The quality of food was good and so was our server. None of the food was seasoned with salt.
Everything was perfect, thank you so much. It was our anniversary and we couldn’t spent it in a better place
Very happy with everything
We split the steak and lobster after a delicious appetizer. We topped it off with a cream broulet. The food and service was top notch. See you again!!
Delicious but pricey. Ribs were fabulous! Sauce was perfect, not too tangy or too sweet!
We went there for our anniversary 7/11/20. We had a reservation right at the dinner hour. We were seated right away at a lovely corner booth. Our server was great. The food was prompt. Everything we had was great tasting. It was a great experience for both of us.
Food was a little overcooked. Service was outstanding. Priced too high.
Food was just ok, however our server Holli was amazing!!!!
Everything was very good! The food and the staff. I would eat there again if I were In that area.
We didn't know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by excellent food and service. The steak seemed a little over priced, but we had a great experience and the people were fabulous. The chef is obviously an expert.
Food was out of this world...crab cakes, meatballs, Caesar salad and filet mignon was one of the best steaks we have had with mushrooms we definitely recommend!! A++ you pay for what you get it is worth the money!!!
Spent my 60th birthday at Bourbons 72 and Turtle Creek Casino. My husband and I both had seafood pasta dishes and were completely satisfied. Would definitely visit again!
Excellent food and service! Will definitely go back
Our food was some of the best we’ve had and we tour the country a lot. The only thing that got us was the service. The decanter was filthy was finger prints and soap scum. The server was stumbling over every item on the menu and wasn’t personable. We don’t know if it was covid related and couldn’t be by the table much. But didn’t feel very welcoming. All in all we will return again for the bourbon and wine list and food. Just hope after all this is done that the service will be a little more welcoming
Would highly recommend - have eaten there several times in the last few years - always great staff and the food and wine selection is wonderful.
What they call waygu beef and charge $59 for is nothing more than a grisly tough bone. I got 3 edible bites. The rest was bone and gristle. I complained and was told that's the appropriate cut. Lmao. What a disgrace!! Talked to the hotel g.m. he didn't care. So obviously it's standard for them to serve cuts of meat that are not what they say they are.
This was our first experience with Bourbon's 72. We have dined at many of the finer restaurants in the Traverse City area in the past. We also were aware, in a general sense, the pricing of the entre's at Bourbon's.
The wait staff was pretty good but they also were not very busy...about 50% capacity. The food was average. We each (I and my wife) each had a salad, our entre', and shared a desert. My wife also had two glasses of wine and I had two cocktails. With tip, our bill was $180.00.
We have no problem spending this amount for a great dining experience. However, when you spend that much on a meal there is NO room for shortcomings. When you spend nearly $200.00, you should walk away VERY satisfied with the food, the wait staff, and the whole experience. Bourbon's fell very short.
What I would suggest is that the management staff at Bourbon's dine at Red Ginger in Traverse City to understand what this means. Your pricing for entre's would be in the highest 5% in the Traverse City area. When the fare is as expensive as yours, diners are looking for an experience. It is/was not there.
We will not be back.
Frank the Maitre d' was phenomenal! He made awesome recommendations and remembered our names from the previous evening. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and ensured we had an excellent experience. The food was top scale. Highly recommend the Lobster bisque, oysters were extremely fresh, King Crab was totally worth the price, the filet was cooked perfectly and crab cakes are to die for!
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....
Very good service, attentive friendly staff and great food!
Looking forward to visiting again soon!
I'd come here even if it wasn't in the casino! I've been here three times and have allways found it enjoyable. LOVE all the bourbons!!!
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.
Food was wonderful, service was great, a great evening.
Celebrating two birthdays in fun, friendly and tasty restaurant.
