Another great evening....

As always we had another great evening at The Rickhouse. We were seated immediately and greeted by our server Jay. Jay was very polite and friendly, he gave us plenty of time to look over the menu, order and then checked on us several times. As always the service and food was great. We have become... read more

Robin is the best. She knows her Bourbons! The steaks are great. Great selection of bourbons. Great atmosphere. Hey Baardstown, help your local businesses by allowing them to use BIGGER SIGNS!

Met some family here, and fell in love with this small town! This restaurant is such a little gem! It has beautiful decor and such neat sinks in the bathrooms! We had an exceptional dinner. I would never have expected big city tastes in such a small town. I felt like I was dining in an upscale ritzy restaurant in... More

Last Saturday, August 22 myself along with 7 others came to The Rickhouse for dinner. Not knowing if we could reservations for a party of 8 at late notice we called and spoke with Jen who accommodated us. Jen was very nice and professional on the phone as well as greeting us and letting us know that Paige would be... More

What a treat. Great service with very nice atmosphere. A little hard to find, tuck into a corner, there should be better signage. And the food was fantastic. My steak was perfect and the chocolate orange bourbon bread pudding was super good! Overall, I have no problem giving this a five star.

Last week my husband and I were passing through Bardstown and at the last minute decided to drop in to the Rickhouse for lunch. Not only were we intrigued by the atmosphere but by our waitress as well. Jenn greeted us with a smile, was knowledgeable of the menu as well as the town. She spoke to us like family... More

Great place! My steak was tender, and the butter knife cut the healthy portion easily. The bourbon selection was solid as well. Quaint atmosphere, and the staff was very knowledgeable and personable.

We were recommended The Rickhouse by the B&B owners. It must be the locals favorite for a nice meal out, but honestly I thought the Harrison-Smith house was MUCH better. Our visit here was mid-week and while they weren't overly busy they seemed shocked we hadn't made a reservation (so if you can, call ahead and make one) - perhaps... More
