This restaurant was recommended to us by locals we met while shopping. It is downstairs from the main dining room of the inn. It's casual, but not too casual. The food was too much for us to finish. I had the pulled pork -- large delicious sandwich. My husband had the Reuben -- again very large. Also try the fried... More

If you're in the Harrodsburg area, it's worth visiting the Owl Tavern for both the bar and the food. The bar serves delicious, interesting, locally-based mixed drinks of their own invention. The food served is excellent- shrimp and grits, catfish, etc.

The tavern is located below the formal dining room for the Beaumont Inn. This is a small, cozy place for an intimate dinner or gathering of friends. The food was excellent, service was warm and friendly. Full bar service featuring an extensive bourbon selection was an added bonus.

I've always loved this place; guess that's why it bothers me so much to see it less than top-shelf. Food is still good but portion sizes have diminished to the size of 'tasters'. The server seemed a little embarrassed to bring our food - and even more so when we asked for bread (their cornbread was once best of the... More

Very nice and unique place. My daughter and I had appetizer and dinner at bar. Food was great and priced appropriately. Wide selection of burbon whoch should be the case given its location to the Burbon Trail. Gets busy later in the evening.

We stopped on a rainy Saturday because we thought this would be a great place for lunch. We were disappointed! The staff were not very friendly, which we were surprised as the place was not busy. My husband ordered the Seafood Soup with Ham and Cheese Sandwich... he was not impressed. I ordered the Chili and Grilled Cheese, it was... More
