Really nice restaurant, first time dining there for an early dinner. The burnt pork belly appetizer was not my favorite as the BBQ sauce on them was overpowering and way too much. The fried pickles were great as they slice then like thin French fries. Corn chowder excellent flavor however not hot enough. Personal preference liking soup very hot though. Great server, attentive and personable. Would dine there again and choose a different main meal vs apps and soup. Decor classy and elegant.

Sat on the Patio and was noisy only because of a group of very loud ladies and the windows were closed. Server was tops and as always the food was amazing. we had the Grilled Salmon and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken this time. For both the Entire plate was perfect.

We tried two new dishes (new for us). The grilled salmon and the shrimp/crawfish etoufee. Both were stellar meals with everything on the plate cooked perfect! And a Bourbons signature smoke old fashion to go with the meal was the right drink.

Food was very good, however service was pretty slow. Our server was super nice and helpful, however seemed overwhelmed. The bad part of the eve occurred when all the food came to the table nice & hot except the guest of honor's....my husband's. We waited for a bit until finally the server came back to the table to explain it would be a little longer for his. Then she came back a while later to explain it was actually just getting started as it "didn't look good". More than 20 minutes after her second trip to tell us about the dinner, his food finally came. The disappointing part was no apology from management, no offer to compensate his dinner.....nothing. I spent over $280 (7 people) on the dinner and to have his dinner come out while everyone was finishing up was sad.

Made a reservation for a high top table was seated in a booth. Limited menu not aware of on line. The server was great to give us the apps that weren’t on brunch menu but had limited choice on meal so we split a pizza which was just ok.

Love this place but it seemed like they were way more than 50% capacity. I have been eating at restaurants since they all opened up for dining after covid hit (including Bourbons a couple times before this date) and this evening was the most crowded place I have been indoors in a long time...if you are covid leary...you may not want to eat here indoors during prime dining hours. But when you do eat here we highly recommend the low country boil and the cherry salmon salad--it's our go to.

Not what we expected. Slow service and underwhelming food. Beware that all meat is marked MP. Not sure how but it is. We had a reservation but still had to wait 20 mins to be seated. Oh and drinks at the bar are expensive $18 each. We paid that much in downtown Manhattan not expected in Troy Michigan. Save your money and go somewhere else.

Everything was lovely and our server was so very kind. The only thing was the chocolate martini tasted like vodka in a glass, I was missing any and all chocolate flavor. But, the butternut squash ravioli and the flourless chocolate cake were divine!

Thank you for your review! The chocolate martini.... should taste like chocolate... so much that you don't realize you are drinking alcohol. Thank you for bringing it to our attention; we will be sure to check that all bartenders are following the recipe. Please mention this review during your next visit and your next chocolate martini will be on us.
