Takes me back to the golden age of Hollywood

I had a Ky Club Sandwich and found it to be exceptional.Was there mid afternoon and my friends and I the only patrons and waited far to long for our food, but as the food was wonderful, it was worth the wait. Will be a repeat customer.

This is perfect for a quiet date night. Our food was really good, and the dessert was all homemade and also excellent. Our server was so friendly, and gave us some cool history about the owners and the building.

We stopped in Kresco's for lunch around 1:30 between distillery visits. We were the only people in there (which always makes me a little leary). I told the waitress/hostess/bartender what type of drink I was looking for and she made a couple suggestions. What I ordered was NOT what I got. I really don't think she knew anything about mixing...

Called ahead to make a lunch reservation for 14 in between distillery tours. Table was set, but service was very nice, but extremely slow and food was mediocre. House salad was enjoyed by most, but entrees took a long time and some not worth eating (do not get the tomato basil soup!). We turned it into a fun adventure, but... More

Stayed in Bardstown on Monday, January 19. Seemed as though all the restaurants in town were closed except Kreso's. Boy were we lucky to eat at this restaurant. Shnitzle's were great. Collection of Bourbon's fantastic. The owner was lovely. The restaurant atmosphere was charming. One of the best nights we had in our week in Kentucky, that coming from a... More

We really wanted to enjoy our dinner but the food was poor. Ordered crab cakes that were so-so but for $10: NO. same with Bosnian salad--thin ribbons of lettuce were difficult to eat with for. Dressing was lackluster and feta was supermarket quality. waste of $7. Jaeger scnhnitzel was so below standard...tasted like bacon fat--not like Ky ham which was... More

Excellent Croatian place. I stop here anytime I am nearby during dining hours. Fantastic wiener schnitzel that will fill up your entire plate. Try it with the noodles, which are wonderful. Very friendly and prompt service from this family run establishment.

We loved this bar so much last year when we stayed in town we made sure to return. Sadly our beloved bartender Jason from last year was not there. His recommendations for "beginner bourbons" helped expand my palate and he was quite entertaining as well. The bartender was nice that was there but was not a bourbon drinker and not... More

Having been here in the past this visit was very disappointing. Everyone has different tastes and the quality was a far cry from the past visits. Service was a bit slow and with only one waitress working the bar and dining room. She was pleasant to all the guests, but seamed overwhelmed. The main course was was good, but the... More
