“Very Nice”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Decided to use our built up credits at the casino. I was really really surprised by this restaurant, in a good way! It was very nice for being in the casino. We got inside and were told that a private event was going on and that we would be seated at the bar, but it was first come first serve... all the seats were full. So we waited probably about 20 minutes and still nothing. Soon to be our amazing waiter, talked with the hostess stand and some how got us seated in his section right away!! Great!! We ordered and chef send out special fries and sauces for us, this yummy corn bread with maple butter. The maple butter was so good! My husband had a steak, said it was yummy! It looked amazing. I had lobster bisque, it was perfect! Also had the shrimp fritters.. They were amazing! Bacon wrapped shrimp and deep fried, YUM. We tried the bacon cheddar jalapeno hash browns and truffle mac and cheese. Both were the same... amazing! The entire meal was a treat! Plus our server taking so much care to get us a table! It was great.

“Lovely steak and good service.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Let me start by saying that we did not pay for this meal. We were treated to dinner here by family who paid with casino comps.

This was our second visit to Bourbon Steak and our experience mirrored our first. The food was excellent. For those seeking out delicately presented, subtle starters, this is not the place for you. Many of the starters are deep fried, etc. those with refined taste may be disappointed, but of you're prepared to embrace the mid-westernness of the menu, everything is very good indeed (the raw tuna starter a lovely exception). That said, some seared scallops or steak tartare would be a welcome menu addition.

If you're dining here, you're ordering steak. If you're not ordering steak, I'm unsure as to why you even came (though I did taste the Kobe burger which was lovely). I ordered the American Kobe fillet
rare which was excellent. I also enjoyed tasting a companion's Kobe rib-eye. The truffled mac & cheese that was recommended by friends was very tasty as well.

Bourbon Steak boasts a very good wine list. Given the fact that they offer 50% off wines over $100 on Tuesdays, you can enjoy some exciting wines that are not normally easy to find around Detroit (we lapped up a 1990 Dmn de Pegau Chareauneuf-du-Pape).

Overall, if you're looking for refined cuisine, this may not be the place for you. But if you're looking for good food, a nice atmosphere, professional service, good wine advice and lovely steaks, this is a winner - especially if someone else is footing the bill, cause it's expensive!
