    Lovely quiet dinner with great waitress. Main meal great! Carrot cake however fry & freezer burn taste. Salty caramel ice cream way too salty- we're had this many times elsewhere. Otherwise a great meal.

    The setting as you walk through the casino is underwhelming. The casino itself is clean and smoke free but hardly elegant. The restaurant has modern lines, all white, with dark faux leather booths. No paintings, no floral arrangements. Sterile and brightly lit. Our waitress was cheerful and prompt but not very elegant either. The food was 3.5 stars……the loaded potato dense not fluffy and quite small. My prime tasty but more rare inside than medium rare. My wife’s white fish entree nicely fried but not particularly flavorful. Solid place overall

    Made reservations for our anniversary and it was phenomenal! Husband had the wagyu and it was an experience like no other. I had the gnocchi and it was great also! Our server Holli really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. She made the night the best it could be!

    Service was so slow. I ordered the wagyu steak and it was terrible. I was looking forward to dining at bourbons 72 specifically for that steak. We were at the table for almost 2 hours in total. Most of that time just waiting. The most money I've ever spent on dinner and honestly feel foolish spending so much money. Go into downtown TC and find something bette.

    The food and waiter Aaron were amazing. It is a more expensive place so be prepared to spend almost $100 per person with drinks and appetizers. The walleye was delicious and so was the escargot. The people who ordered steaks also said those were amazing.

    Bourbon 72 has become our favorite special event restaurant. The atmosphere is casual elegant, the food expertly created, and the service 5 stars. The waitress even offered various ways they could prepare the shrimp on my Caesar salad. I sample lobster bisque whenever it’s on a menu, and their’s is perfect. I’m sorry I didn’t catch the waitress’s name. She was terrific - knowledgeable and personable all wrapped in one!

    Everything was just mediocre. Everything lacked a little sophistication for the price. For example, Copper Rock steakhouse at Four Winds casino in New Buffalo is hands down 10 times better.

    We go to Bourbon 72 regularly and it has always been wonderful with all top rankings. Until last night. Our waitress clearly was inexperienced and so slow. We waited a long time for our food. Probably 45 minutes or so and 2 out if the 4 of us had cold food. Also, she did not know how to handle our bill by using our promotions. We try to be kind. Left her a $30 tip I hope she can improve

    We all ordered the Bison steak and it was delicious! We all commented on how good the bread service was as well as the side items. The only thing we didn’t care for was the carrot cake for dessert. We will head back there soon. We are very selective about the restaurants we choose when visiting Traverse City, such as Red Ginger, Amical, Boat House etc. Bourbons is every bit as good and can stand up to compete with them.
