Everything about our visit was great. Immediately seated. Immediately greeted at the table once we sat down. Greeted by a smiling server who offered great advice for our gluten free diner as well as the rest of us. Great food and drinks as well.
We will be back!

First timer and I was definitely impressed. The food was amazing. It was the best meal I'd had in a long time. the drinks were unique and timely, like the cranberry old fashioned. It's not a cheap place but quality food should not be cheap and the meal quality was totally worth it. Can't wait to go back!

Seated for our reservation immediately. Fantastic service was provided by Megan. The food was excellent. If you like spice try the shrimp appetizer. It was a crowded Saturday night and the noise level was high. Great restaurant.

I love this place... food is always great... if you make reservations its aways with in 10 mins ... service is outstanding, the waiter came to our table probably 5 or 6 times thru out dinner during a busy busy Friday night... the mixed drinks are on par... the owners talked to us liked they actually cared... 5 stars all the way... and 4 drinks and 2 dinners was around 60$ ... very nice place

Always a pleasure to dine here. Great staff, attentive, great menu and specials. One of the best Eggs Benedicts in Livingston County and always creative specials and drinks. We like to support this place regularly so we don't come anywhere close to losing another great place in Brighton!

Great menu good food and service. However, Open Table said that servers wear masks and observe Covid precautions. We were disappointed that none of the waitstaff wore masks and restaurant was very crowded with no social distancing.

Overcrowded. Felt like we were eating dinner with the tables next to us and couldn’t help but hear their conversations. Nearly impossible to walk between tables without accidentally brushing up against diners. Food was mediocre. Cocktails were good though.

We had a large party and were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time which was amazing considering how busy the restaurant was. The two ladies at the host stand were upbeat, friendly and smiling despite the crowd. Our waiter, I think his name was Matt, was very attentive without hovering, he had good suggestions regarding both cocktails and food. Overall it was an enjoyable evening although the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation with anyone at the table other than the person seated right next to you. For half our party it was a return visit the other half were first timers, we all look forward to returning and will recommend Bourbons to friends.
