Really loved the ambiance, it was like walking into a different era! Hostess and server were very friendly; our server also made great drink and food recommendations. Ordered the mushroom pizza and shrimp and grits; the flavor was great for both of these. Interesting presentation and take on southern-inspired food. This was our first visit; we'll definitely be back for more good food.

Bourbons was absolutely fantastic! The food was wonderful and our server, Jes, made sure we were well taken care of even though it was extremely busy that night. I would definitely recommend for a great night out in the Brighton area!

We were there to celebrate my birthday with another couple. We had only eaten here for lunch, so we weren't sure what to expect for dinner. But, everything was fantastic from the service to the food, to the location of our table. I couldn't have asked for a better dining experience to celebrate. We will be back for sure!

Bourbons was 5 Stars in every area. Friendly staff, clean and inviting environment. The menu options were fantastic - I couldn't decide!! Both my husband and I thought what we finally ordered was delicious. The prices were really great too. We will definitely be back with friends.

Patti was tremendous! It was a busy night in Brighton. We asked to sit in main dining room, as my hearing impairment made it hard to hear on the enclosed porch. Very accommodating. Patti was our server, prompt and very attentive. Loved our entrees (husband has the Ribeye, and I had the shrimp and grits). Couple of cocktails (dirty martini and Cajun lemonade)- delicious. Also had fried pickles for app and split Hummingbird Cake for dessert. So good. We enjoy Bourbons and was so happy to see every table filled and quite busy downtown. Yay for February in Michigan. We will be back!

I am in a power chair or scooter. It can be cumbersome to say the least. I am not a petite lady so that just adds to it. I put on the reservation that I was in a scooter and that way they could accommodate me as they did!! Thank you Bourbons for making wonderful.

4 of us had mediocre yet espensive dinners. Burnt pork appetizer mushy, soaked in bbq sauce. Mac n cheese dry. Trout dry, no seasoning. Steak average. Brisket average. Considering entrees average $25-$30 not worth it!

Visited with my family of four adults. Excellent food and service. Large selection of alcoholic beverages. Very cool ambiance, reminded us of a "Gentlemen's Smoking Room" without the smoking. Dark brown leather, dark wood beams, vintage lights, big "old time" paintings, sprawling bar with TVs. Ribs and Butternut Squash Ravioli was absolutely delish! We will definitely be back!

The food was amazing. i had the fried oyster po boy with collard greens and brown sugar and fig old fashioned. Everything was absolutely amazing and it was a great experience with authentic, refined southern food. The decor is amazing too. Very reminiscent of old studies that gentleman used to smoke their cigars and drink whiskey in their leather chairs.
