The Bourbon Room is a local's favorite. We drop by to sit at the bar and enjoy one of their specialty concoctions. When the weather is nice, the outdoor patio is a delight. The food is excellent. It's not a pizza place, but their pizza is excellent. We've gotten to know the owner and staff and they add to the... More

This is my favorite swanky little Gin - opps make that Bourbon Joint. They have given great style to an unassuming spot next to a little bar, in a funny parking lot. Dont let the exterior fool you, it's a great location with a cool ambiance! I try to enjoy a meal or drink here every few months!

The drinks are on point. Packed of Flavors. Good happy hour pricing as well. We started with the garlic fries and dates wrapped in bacon for appetizers - the dates are outstanding!! I could eat 20 of them. I ordered their cheeseburger as a lettuce wrap for my entree and it was ok. I felt that it lacked flavor -... More

The charm of this restaurant extends to its ambience: music, decor, choice of specialty drinks, and attention to service. The menu has delicious and reasonably priced dishes. I hope someday they will return to their delicious pizza specials. Come by, with plans to stay a while.

Good food, nice atmosphere and about a 5 min taxi ride from the Ramada Limited. If you like live music, the Creekside Inn is right next door. Check the schedule for the nightly entertainment. Picnic tables, fire pit, in the back of the building.

The Happy Hour on Wednesdays is pretty good! Great small plates like brussel sprouts, bacon-wrapped dates, pork sliders, etc. The cocktails are great too!

We decided to go to the Bourbon Room for our Anniversary because we wanted to go someplace new that sounded fun. We're glad we picked it because it is a cute, hidden away little place with funky, Grandma's house meets speakeasy decor. We got there around 7:45 on a Friday and the place was packed. We sat at the bar... More

Been wanting to try The Bourbon Room for quite some time. Finally made it. We were greeted by an extremely courteous young gentleman at the door to a uber cozy speak-easy-type establishment. We found seats at the bar, and proceeded to order two drinks - the Kitty something – spectacular my partner stated, and for me a Manhattan with burnt... More

I have been to the Bourbon Room three times recently and each time had wonderful service and particularly great cocktails! The French Gimlet is refreshing and you only need one! The $5 whiskey sours were a great deal and better than I remember them from my youth. Best Manhattan & Old Fashioned I've ever tried. The parmesan kale is crunchy... More
