Sadly we went to Rickhouse per reviews on your site. Not only are the Bourbon mushroom greenbeans still on the menu,our waitress forgot to tell us they no longer make them. We also ordered the Brussels sprouts and scalloped potatoes. Lack of seasoning and a feeling that basic ingredients were used provided a lackluster taste experience. After trying a couple... More

The food is always great! Can't beat the grilled Caesar salad! The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is that the last two times I've been there it was so noisy I could barely hear the people sitting at my table... go for the food-- don't sit in the back room... too many people make too much noise!

We waited 90 minutes for our food which was mediocre at best. The vegetables (Brussel sprouts and green beans) were clearly frozen vegetables...not sure how a restaurant like this has survived this long. We are just visitors, but if i were a local, this would be one and done. DISAPPOINTING...

This is a MUST if you are in the Bardstown, Ky. Area. This is possibly the best meal I can remember. The food, service, pricing, ambience, comfort....all at one unique, interesting place. A little hard to find, but, well worth the effirt

Great place to dine! Excellent menu selection. The atmosphere was very cool as it was in the lower level of a brick building. There desserts were great also. Normally I skip dessert, but they were too good to pass up.

Steak dinner with wild mushrooms that were bourbon infused, wild mushroom ravioli, 11 cheese MacNCheese, charred caesar salad was a fantastic meal and a great way to end our vacation. The portions are huge and so are the sides. Excellent service!

This Restaurant was outstanding. The Drinks were well made. I travel all over the country and the food here was as well prepared as The Capital Grille or Ruth Chris. The value was unbelievable. The steak I had was 55 to 70 dollars anywhere else. My meal for two was less than 70 bucks. Service was very good no problems.... More

We had three couples in our party. This was a first for trying a restaurant in Bardstown. The location was very pretty. The food and the service was wonderful. We had a great time and will definitely recommend to all of our friends as well as we will return again.

My boyfriend and I went to The Rickhouse for dinner in mid-December. We were staying in Bardstown during a quick trip of distillery tours. Our server was friendly, relatable and very knowledgeable of food items on the menu as well as the vast bourbon selection. We had a flight of five bourbons to taste which is highly recommended. For dinner... More
