Handled large group with ease and good food

Made a reservation for 14 on a Saturday night as part of a surprise birthday trip for my husband after distilleries tours. I'd done a lot of research before making the reservation, as most restaurants in this area serve mostly fried foods and pork (this group doesn't eat either). Everyone was... read more

Back again, second night. 1st night had the blueberry salmon and drinks. Which was fantastic, I came back a 2nd night. Tonight is drinks only only because I had an early dinner. The atmosphere is great and the staff and owner are friendly. I would highly recommend this establishment, whether you are with friends or a loved one.

We joined another couple here for dinner while visiting the area and had a good meal, though not without a couple of misses on the restaurant's part. The filets we ordered were very good, though overcooked by one label, e.g., our medium rare steak was a solid medium. But, they were very tasty and tender. The potatoes au gratin and... More

Recommended by our b&b host from Bourbon Manor, our reservation was early and the only one available. By the time we were finished and leaving it was clear why. The restaurant was packed by 7 pm with tourists from the bourbon trail as well as many locals. They would know! This is a steakhouse, no doubt about it. But my... More

We stopped in on a Friday evening after traveling. We waited 10 minutes for a table to be set up. The place was not busy at all. I ordered a glass of wine that was 1/4 th of a pour. Not a sample either. I would not recommend the salmon with it's bourbon blueberry sauce and couscous and spinach. The... More

Had dinner here with a large group (16) and they handled us very well. Considering hte size, there were only a few small issues that were handled well by the staff. Good bourbon tasting list, steaks were amazing, excellent side dishes. Place was a little tricky to find, maybe call them first.

The restaurant was difficult to identify at night until one of our party got out of the car and knocked on what was the back door of the kitchen. Better signage and lighting of the existing sign would have helped. First time visitors will need a GPS that they will question. The restaurant is in the basement of a very... More

I called late on Saturday to make reservations for that same night and they were more than accommodating. We had a drink at the bar while they finished getting our table put together. The food was incredible. You either have to order the 11 cheese mac n cheese or the 11 cheese scalloped potatoes. Both were wonderful!

Nice atmosphere, but a little disappointed in food. Even though we ate fairly early they were out of some choices. The steak was highly recommended, but was only average....hard to get a proper medium rare
