Between four of us we ordered the brisket, the pulled pork, half chicken and the ribs, I think we also managed to order all of the sides! I wont beat around the bush talking about flavours and what not, all I'll say is that it's delicious. You must try it! There was nothing that arrived at our table which I wouldn't try again! (We actually returned three days later for more!) The star of the show in my opinion was the brisket, tender and juicy with a hint of smoke. The pork was slightly more smokey but was also fall apart tender.
The sides were all really good too, the burnt end beans were to die for, lovely big squishy beans in a really tangy hot sauce with generous amounts of burnt ends of brisket.
We managed one dessert between four of us, I know, pathetic! The brownie was moist and chocolaty and the vanilla ice-cream was peppered with small vanilla seeds which gave it a really rich flavour. I meant to ask if they made the ice-cream themselves, I haven't tasted such creamy ice-cream in a long time.
Unfortunately there isn't too much in the way of interesting beers behind the bar but it is after all a whiskey bar. I did spy a bottle of Kelpie Seaweed Ale from the Williams Brothers Brewing Company in Scotland and it went nicely with the brisket. I finished the evening with a whiskey sour, the bartender was quite generous with his whiskey pour and the overall result was very delicious!

The staff in Bison are its crowning glory, lovely bright and bubbly servers who really go above and beyond to help diners enjoy their meal. On the day we were there this extended to cutting up meat for a gentleman at the table next to us, I kid you not!
