    Larry was an incredibly attentive, informative server, and we thoroughly enjoyed our pork burnt ends app, and ribs, fried chicken and etouffee entrees. We’ll be back.

    Reservations are a MUST! Food was wonderful. Filet and eggs were on point. Kids loved the beignets . My husband loves a Bloody Marys. However, he had the bourbon Bloody Mary and thought it was too sweet. I was not a fan of the volume. Great people watching. We will be back with reservations and off peak times.

    We love Bourbons!!!! It’s have amazing food and great staff. We love their risotto and also their southern fried chicken salad! Such a great place. Also their ribeye is spectacular! Get it with the risotto instead of the mash potatoes. You won’t regret it!

    Another great time at Bourbon's I did the Étouffée and a smoked Old Fashion. Wife had the Decatur Steak and a Pink Margherita. Both meals were amazing. We sat out in the atrium area and was a so nice looking out at Brighton.

    As always a great meal at Bourbom’s. We usually get the Georgia Pecan Salmon salad, blackened. This time the salmon seemed like a smaller cut and there was hardly any dressing on the salad. We were too engaged with our conversation to request more dressing. Still delicious. It did seem as the night got later they turned the music up louder and made it a little more difficult to hear each other talking. Overall nothing to stop us from continuing to come back.

    Always amazing food and service!! This is the only place I’ve ever eaten that everything comes out when it should! We got our appetizer and finished it and then within 5 min our salads and got to finish them and then the food was there. Never a salad before the appetizers and never food before you’ve finished the others. The timing has always been spot on!! Food is the best quality!! Not frozen gross food! Seriously our favorite place to eat and we’ve only eaten here 3 times!! We literally crave the food it’s so good!!!

    We usually enjoy visiting Bourbons, however our recent visit on Friday February 22nd we were a bit disappointed. We were shown to our table and promptly handed the specials of the day menu. I decided to order the Sea Bass special for $40 which I thought was a bit on the pricey side. We placed our orders and the waiter returned to our table only to inform us that the Sea Bass was not available until 5:00 pm? I would recommend that Bourbons not place the Special Menus out until the food can be prepared or to qualify that the specials do not start until 5:00pm

    We were greeted and seated at our table very quickly, which was great. Immediately while being seated, we were asked what our drink orders were, we had not even looked at the menu. Felt very rushed. We placed our dinner order…the pork belly burnt ends appetizer are excellent! Not 1 minute after our appetizer arrived, our entrees were brought to the table, seemed odd that they came so fast. Overall, good, but felt very rushed.

    Great food and a pretty cool setting in downtown Brighton. Service at our mid afternoon Valentine’s Day lunch was a bit slow (as we were two of maybe 20 people in the restaurant), but server was very friendly. Great atmosphere, but we are betting it gets loud when full. Definitely recommend for a great meal.
