    I absolutely love the burnt pork belly ends over sweet cornbread. The appetizers and salads are excellent especially the southern fried chicken salad. The dinner was a let down this time as the short rib was tough and the blackened grouper my son had was so hot it was inedible . I got a free hummingbird cake for my birthday which is my favorite. This time I had an end piece that didn’t have any pineapple but the cream cheese frosting was great but I love hummingbird cake and it needs pineapple. The waitress was asssome and they always are here. I enjoy this place but the dinner menu must be better for cost but everything else is excellent.

    Was a lovely place to have Mother's Day brunch. Food was delicious and so were the adult beverages. :). Mothers even received a red rose. The only thing negative I can say is the food took quite a while to come out, which can be difficult with children, but they supplied a coloring page and crayons to help pass the time.

    Last night’s date night at Bourbons was fantastic. It was easy to get a reservation on OpenTable. We waited a few minutes past our reservation time but ordered drinks at the bar while we waited. The drinks were generous pours and delicious. Our table was in the open air patio but not outside. We need to eat gluten free food and Bourbons is great for that. We had burnt ends as an appetizer to go with our Double Oaked old fashioned drinks. For dinner we had surf and turf with risotto instead of roasted potatoes. The filet was perfect and the lobster tail was a good size. Get the risotto! It’s wonderful. We also ordered the short rib which is also fantastic. The spicy greens are a great side to go with fall off the bone short rib. Yum! The food was great as I said but the service shined last night. The kitchen made a mistake with our GF surf and turf order and brought out a plate with zip sauce and cornbread. They had to remake that dinner completely. We ate the short rib dinner while we waited. When the surf and turf arrived they brought it with another short rib dinner which we ended up taking home. We had each of the house Cabernet Sauvignon choices with our dinner and they were both quite good. We closed out the meal with the chocolate decadence with vanilla ice cream. Lovely experience all around. Love that we can eat gluten free and not have to settle for food that doesn’t taste great. We will keep going back.

    Truly enjoyed the experience as it was handled very well in every way by the restaurant. I was there for an important business meeting and upon request they placed me in the back portion of the restaurant for quiet. The waitress was wonderful and we occupied her table for 2 hours meeting. She was attentive and patient. We hopefully ripped well but she was truly excellent. The food was incredible, the pork belly burnt end were perfect severed over sweet cornbread and the blacked salmon salad was excellent. Truly enjoyed it. Thank you to all at the restaurant as I look forward to dining there more often.

    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.
