We have had several meals here and always enjoyed our visit. Portions are very good, prices are reasonable and the food is excellent. This time we stayed overnight in the historic inn. Awesome room with charm and a vintage appeal. Very much recommended.

What a great place and wonderful historic town. The Tavern has been visited by Abe Lincoln, Daniel Boon and more. Jesse James shot up the place and you can still the bullet holes in the walls. Heard many stories of other spirited guests that might still be there. The Inn has 15 wonderful rooms some historic and some tastefully new....

Four of us had dinner there two nights ago. Fried green tomato appetizer was excellent, burgoo was spicy and good, hot brown was a bit of a disappointment. For my taste, it had too much ham and the sauce was very rich. Couldn't finish the dish. My friend enjoyed his beef stew but my wife's hamburger was cooked rare. She...

We stopped here on a Sunday evening. The waitress was nice and the TV had the game on. The fries tasted like yesterday's heated in the microwave. The Black and Tan we ordered was weak. Not good food and the specialty bourbons were crazy expensive. We will not go back

We drove into Bardstown with no accomodation booked. We dined in the Bourbon bar and the food and service was tremendous. The rooms in the hotel are superb. We stayed in the building next door where the rooms are brand new, clean and very spacious. The hosts, John and Kathy, were extremely hospitable.....great place to stay in Bardstown.

We had such a fun night at the Old Talbott: ghost stories, yummy ribs and a first class band on in the bar. Our server was lovely and welcomed us to take a look around the old building upstairs although we were not staying there. The cover charge to the bar was waived, which it is if you're staying there......

Four of us got to the Tavern and the lineup for the dinning room was huge. We dove into the Tavern bar. There was trouble with the draft and we waited forty minutes before we got a substitute beer maker. The bar maiden was tough and incompetent. We went in for the unique building and was very disappointed with everything.

This is a great bed and breakfast. They have a bourbon bar and restaurant on site as well. The people are awesome and very friendly. This is now my 3rd stay at this location. The rooms are clean and quaint. There is nothing fancy here but the customer service level makes up for it. Food is excellent and the bar...

Way too slow on the service for off season. Many food items were sold out. They weren't half full of patrons. Nice building worth a look. Prices were good I suppose. Hard to say cause we only order a beer each.
