Saturday was packed but they found a table for us in this awesome basement restaurant. Had bourbon chicken and filet mignonette cooked to perfection. Sides of scalloped potatoes, asparagus, Brussel sprouts in bourbon sauce and mac & cheese. All to die for! Highly recommended.

Went there for dinner at the suggestion of Bourbon Manor B&B. What a fabulous dinner! The steaks were so tender you could almost cut them with a fork! Bourbon mushrooms, scalloped potatoes, who could ask for more! Large portions... If you are anywhere near Bardstown,...More
