Not sure why such good reviews...

The filet was overcooked and the food overpriced for the quality. The service was slow. The desserts were good.Overall, I would not recommend. For a good filet, I suggest visiting Jag's Steakhouse. :)

My daughter lives in Burlington, KY, and we generally dine at Tousey House Tavern when we visit her. We ate at the Tousey House on 17 Feb, 2015. What a delightful experience! The staff was courteous and quiet. The decor was just right. Interesting items adorned shelves, lighting was low and artfully done. The menu had a wide range of... More

Excellent service and food with a very welcoming feel. The fried chicken is worth the wait! Their attention to detail is something that most places don't give much thought to anymore. Love this place!

We were recommended to eat here and i'm glad we listened. We had the pork tenderloin and the duck, both were exceptional and well worth the price. The atmosphere was very nice and the staff was very attentive and friendly.

This is a great place for a good meal. if you know the Greyhound Tavern you know the Tousey House. The food is slightly different but always good. The one consistent meal is the FRIED CHICKEN. If you can get a seat at the table for two on the second floor by the front window all you can see are... More

First, the restaurant is in a charming historic house and is a cozy place to be on a cool fall evening. The server couldn't have been nicer but the food was not the best - or to be fair, maybe I am just not a big fan of smoked food. We shared the fried tomato appetizer as well as the... More

Half price wine night. Walleye perfectly prepared. Wonderful creme brûlée. Outstanding service. The corn was great proving everything is better with bacon.
