Nice Bourbon Selection and Good Food

We had the sirloin steak dinner and the $25 bourbon flight. They had a nice bourbon selection but we're out of a few I had wanted to try (not their fault really as we all know how hard it can be to get some of these bourbons). Service was pretty good, but our waitress could have checked back with... read more

The Rickhouse was highly recommended by the innkeepers at our BnB but our experience was pretty awful. Once we got seated and got the attention of a waitress we ordered a bottle of wine. 10 minutes later she came back to tell us they didn't have it. We ordered a different bottle, waited another 5 minutes and finally got it.... More

Each of the four of us ordered the crab cakes and we were all happy. We each had different choices for the 2 included sides, and I was pleased that each plate was delivered to the right diner. My macaroni with eleven cheeses (when four is just not nearly enough!) was wonderful! I also loved the brussels sprouts which were... More

They are known for their steaks and my husband & I were not disappointed. Waitress was very helpful- we also had a flight of bourbons with her help. Overall a good experience.

First, I'm giving this place a 4 more on the side dishes than the steak. I had an 11oz sirloin with bourbon greem beans and scalloped potatoes. The beans and potatoes were excellent! The steak was OK. Yes, you can cut it with a butter knife, but I'm more interested in the flavor. The steak appeared to have been cooked... More

Found this place thanks to good reviews here on TA. It's hidden on the lower level of a big building, so it's nothing you'd discover while driving by. The specialties seem to be steaks, but there are several other offerings too. We both ordered sirloin steak dinners, and they were delicious. Steak knives weren't even needed or offered. I suspect...

We took a chance without a reservation and were able to get a table at the Rickhouse after about a 20 minute wait at the bar. I'd recommend making a reservation especially for a weekend night! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The steaks were cooked perfectly and it was hard to make a decision between all... More

I didn't have high hopes for a steakhouse in Kentucky. I'm from Houston and have had amazing steaks. The steak I ate at the rickhouse was amazing. I asked for a steak knife. The waiter told me to use my butter knife. I couldn't believe how tender the steak was. Great flavor. The mac and cheese was awesome. Best I... More

We would never have known about this place if our Cab driver and Bartender, didn't recommend and show us where it was. It's off the beaten path in a basement. The place has great atmosphere, our meal was fabulous! I had the chicken cord au bleu crepes and my husband had the bourbon bbq chicken. His meal came with 2... More
