Most of the outdoor seats were in the sun, so we opted to sit inside. We all agreed to go Tapas and order a bunch of apps. Foods were good, nothing above average. Except the Cheese board. It was really good. The menu is somewhat...More

Chose Bourbon Blue to celebrate my wedding anniversary. Always a good vibe, ate outside this particular day. Was seated within minutes of walking in. Had my "usual" pan fried tilapia meal and the chef let me hack the menu for dessert. I love the candied...More

We walked over from our B&B and enjoyed a delightful dinner outside on their deck overlooking the water. I had the best salad ever: blackened beef filet tips on lettuce with balsamic lemon dressing. YUM

Small bar with a great ambiance, I believe it was a water mill before. There is live music and the people are mostly young adults. Really good if you are looking for a couple of drinks in a cool environment.

My wife and I were not impressed at all. The food and the service was mediocre at best. We're quite familiar with and fond of Cajun food. Don't bother, it's not worth the price. The food was a little bland.........

Food is a joke. Service is a joke. You guys don’t have your priorities straight. Good luck with the collage Kids. The life Musik you guys provide is ok or alright.

We host several events a month that bring their own entertainment, either a DJ or use our docking station- mostly birthday celebrations. The music can definitely be at a level where guests can have a great time and dance. It... More
