Great service, amazing food!

We visited over the weekend and could not have been more pleased! We started with the crab cakes appetizer, it came with a wonderful sauce. I had the bone in steak and my wife had the chicken half. The portions were very large, got your money's worth! The sides were amazing as well. We picked... read more

Amanda is the best!! Don't ask for the mint Julep, don't have it, but the flight is the Bomb.com We had the Flintstone stack of ribs and yes we have left overs. Everything was great. Staff never rushed us. We stayed hours. Wonderful night for a date night or larger party.

We just finished a great dinner at The Rickhouse. Our server was Amanda and she was awesome. She is very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks and made great recommendations. I would recommend The Rickhouse for anyone, whether you're local or out of town.

All the locals know it and love it. When staying in Bardstown, the people we talked to seemed awed that we knew about it (and proud.) As previously reviewed, it's a little out of the way in that it is in the basement of a local landmark.....they could use better street signage. Walking in was notable due to the building... More

While staying at the Old Kentucky State Park campground, we ran across the Rickhouse Restaurant while visiting the Getz Museum of Whiskey/Bourbon. The restaurant is in the bottom floor of the museum in Spalding Hall. We made a dinner reservation for 6:30 and were seated a bit early when we arrived. No wait! We had great service from Amanda, our... More

Located in basement of former school adjacent to Cathedral. Not easy to find but when found easy parking and access. Outside dining also available but we opted for inside on warm night. Food selection excellent. Prices fair for rather upscale restaurant. Prime and aged steaks.Also good pasta.

My husband got try the Pappy for the first time (delicious but not worth the price was his opinion , but that's another review) anyway ,... More

We dined here last week while in Bardstown. The restaurant is dark but extremely attractive, modeled after a rickhouse, which is the room in a distillery where the bourbon is stored and aged on rows of wooden racks. The food was unbelievably great. I had the chicken crepes and my husband had a steak. Both were seasoned and cooked to... More

Bardstown steakhouse tries to be fancy, but in my opinion misses the mark. I usually don't order steak in a restaurant because I'm picky about how it's cooked (I can usually do better at home) versus the price. Based on TA reviews I took a chance. I ordered the aged bone-in rib eye cooked rare($32) wife had the filet cooked... More
