    Food and drinks are always top notch, but for some reason we received extremely poor service once we were seated upon our last visit to Bourbons. We waited over 12 minutes for our waiter to come to our table to take our drink order, and the restaurant was only half full. We put in our drink order and food order at the same time, and our drinks were brought to us within a few minutes. After waiting 30 minutes for our food and noticing that the three tables nearest us (which had all been seated after our food order was taken) were finished eating their meals, I got up from my table and approached one of the servers to find out why our meals were delayed. I had ordered a steak and my wife had ordered a pizza. Our waiter finally came out with our food 40 minutes after we had put in our order. The waiter offered us a complementary dessert, but we could not even finish our meals. I had asked to speak with the manager, but the manager never came to our table. After declining the free dessert offer from the waiter for his poor service, stating that we were not interested in any dessert, our waiter brought us the check without any discount and did not offer to comp us any of the four alcoholic drinks that we had ordered.

    Bourbons is awesome! Our waitress and table outside was great! Food was great too! Their website states everything under $30, but steaks were more and it cost extra for a salad, but we enjoyed celebrating a birthday and the complimentary birthday dessert! Thank you!!!!

    Bourbon's is a fine restaurant with great food and an ample drink list. Very busy for a Wednesday evening. Parking is an issue in Brighton. We had a 7 PM reservation assuming the "5 O'Clock Crowd" would have dissipated. It hadn't and we had to park about 3 blocks away.

    Second time eating at Bourbons. Both times have been great! The Steaks are prepared perfectly and do not disappoint. Service was good though it seems the wait staff are overbooked with tables understandably. I may have waited a while for our wait staff had I needed something.

    On this visit, the staff at Bourbons exceeded my expectations! From their hostess's assistance in adding family members to our reservation and then accommodating our request to change our table from outdoor to indoor due to the heat, to the outstanding service from our server, Shane, who was spot on with his recommendations for cocktails, bottels of wine and our entree's. On a busy Saturday evening, our server never missed a beat and the kitchen knocked it out of the park. All of our meals were wonderful! Inside dining was a bit noisy, but with a very positive vibe. Definitely recommended.

    Early 3:30 pm dinner during the relatively busy Saturday of Taste of Brighton. We we’re promptly seated upon arrival and greeted by our very friendly waitress right away. She served us ice water while we reviewed the comprehensive menu. Enjoyed drinks (my fav Smokey old fashioned) , a blue cheese wedge salad, delicious app of friend pickles fig jam/pear and cheesy pizza along with a Burger & Fries for the hubby. Waitstaff Megan G was a delight. She was attentive, informative on menu items & very cheerful. She had been busy since 11 AM and yet remained upbeat and very in tune with our dining request.

    We have been to Bourbons a few times for lunch and dinner. The food is always good with the exception of the coleslaw. Last night I had the Salmon Georgia Pecan salad and even though I think I only had two pecans, the salmon was probably the best piece of cooked salmon I have ever eaten so I didn’t care. Service was very good. We never had to ask for drink refills and dirty dishes were promptly removed. My only complaint would be the noise level, but it’s nice to see people out having fun again.
