Good food and great atmosphere. Very good service. Even vegans can eat there. Hard to find even with gps as it is in the basement of an old church building and poor signage.

We have been at this restaurant before and it is one of our favorite places to eat. We were there on a Friday night and it was extremely slow. We had really good service and the food was good.

Went there on a Tuesday night, and had great food and service. Meet a local couple and talked for a couple of hours sharing stories. Great bartender (Timothy), and waitress (Jordan). The owner was very pleasant to talk with. This is my second time here, and I will be returning again! Thanks to everyone at The Rick house Restaurant!

I was in historic section of Bardstown as part of Bourbon Trail tour. Me and buddy were looking for place to eat after 8 pm on a Wednesday. Several people said Rickhouse might be the best choice. It does take some effort to find it but worth the trip. The staff was attentive but then there were only 2 other... More

This was really a fun place to eat. The menu is quite good. Two of us had the barbecue chicken and they loved it, especially moist and tender. One of us had the salmon and the bourbon sauce was outstanding. I had a filet and it was flavorful and cooked as ordered. The sides are really good. We had the... More

We were driving through Bardstown enroute to horse cave, Kentucky. Found this restaurant on trip advisor. I do have to agree that the establishment is not well marked and would be a challenge to find especially when located in the basement of a big building. When arriving by car, looking for parking in city hall and look toward the museum... More

Great steaks----more than I could handle and price very reasonable for the traveller on the Bourbon Trail. It did take a bit of searching to find it (behind a church, and down the stairs) but worth it. Nice wine selections, and a variety of options on the Menu. No open until Tuesday-Saturday.

Tough to find. Bardstown does not allow a lot of signage in the Historic distric, but it is worth the search. Food was excellent...service was as good. Try the grilled salad! Steak was great and all sides as well. You will not leave hungry.
