Food was not hot when it reached the table and the restaurant is so incredibly loud, you can not even hear people at your table talking.

Service is always slow! 2 hrs for wings n burgers! 1/2 hr for a cold drink(non alcohol). Spacing was not 6’ apart and our neighbors complained about it to us!
On a lighter note, it is always busy and food is tasty.

Do not go on weekend unless making a reservation, it was completely packed, no one around us had food only drinks, waited over an hour to the main meal. Prices were high for value and amount of food. Menu was small not good selection.Was decent to try but most likely will not be back.

I had the spinach artichoke dip, steak and brussel sprouts. It was all good. The steak was done to perfection and the steakhouse butter was so good. The moonshine drinks were amazing. Highly recommend

This was our first time at Bums Rush. We decided to support a different local business during these crazy times. The food and the drinks were excellent. I ordered shrimp tacos and was a little put off I had to assemble them myself but the flavors made up for it. The mac and cheese, cheddar grits, and jambalaya were all super! We sat in the dining room, at 6, where they were also setting up live music...right next to us, within 2 feet from our table. We weren't expecting that but they were able to accommodate us and moved the musician to another location in the dining room. But all in all, We will definitely be back!

Waited 1 1/2 hrs for food,two other tables that came about 30 min. after us were served their food all while the cook stood talking to the party of 5 table and still no meal for my wife and I ....We finally (after an hour and 15 min) just said we’ll take our food to go. The Mahi-mahi was over done and the beef tips were ok...Harvest salad was hard to mess up so that was good,potato pan cakes were good. Our waitress was apologetic and nice.We will not be back.

please be aware that they do fill the place, there were no empty tables when we were there. It was very busy, a bit loud as they had karaoke in the back dining room, and service was a bit slow although very friendly. the steaks were very good and all the food was prepared well.
