Fun spot!! The food is great, drink menu extensive, service cheerful and the atmosphere is lively. I had the hushpuppies for an app, the etouffee for dinner, and a couple of Old Fashioned cocktails. Very delicious... HIGHLY recommend!!

After 4 years away, I visited Columbia again last weekend. Research led us to Bourbon. The most extensive whiskey offering I have ever seen. Varied menu with familiar and unique offerings. We'd road-tripped in and the loud music nearly prevented conversation. An attractive and young...More

This place is a must visit. We sat at the bar while waiting for a table and were entertained by the bartenders making custom drinks. The food was great. Fun atmosphere with cool music.

We went today for brunch. I enjoyed the crab cake, and I ordered it without bacon. My fiancé enjoyed the Booz berry biscuits. I can’t wait to come back!

Wonderful outdoor seating. The service was not up to par with the prices on their menu! Menu was unique, but food was just "okay." With so many choices in Columbia, this is not a favorite of ours.

Our service was great, I think his name was Ethan. We sat outside and ordered many yummy appetizers. The Brussel sprouts were amazing ;) ...We ordered wine and drinks and the pricing of the food was very reasonable!
