Great atmosphere and relaxing after a hard days work. The home cooked meals are a welcome meal to someone traveling through Elizabethtown. Good variety of meals on the menu. The pinto beans and cornbread are yummy! Veggie plate is a good choice too. Make sure you try their homemade pie or cobblers for dessert. Reasonable prices!

Nice atmosphere; home-style cooking; reasonable prices. Parking can be a challenge. Boutique upstairs and rocking chairs downstairs to pass the time waiting. Recommend it!

The Staff was friendly. The food was good. But the Hot Brown did not quite compare to Mammy's in Bardstiown. Nor did the Fried Green Tomato BLT compare to Susie Q's in Bardstown. We were a Party of 3... Their Peanut Butter Pie was said to be very good...My Peach Cobbler was soggy & seemed to be the tail end... More

My family and I have been enjoying meals here for over twenty years, and they have always provided good hearty food at reasonable prices with friendly service. Favorites include the broccoli casserole, open-faced roast beef, and cobblers for dessert.

A lady at a visitor center down the road recommended this for lunch. We are sure glad she did! We had our first 'hot browns' here. We had 1 turkey hot brown, 1 ham hot brown, and 1 pulled pork bbq sandwich. the french fries were super crispy and hot. All the food was hot and tasty. Old home with... More

The atmosphere is very pleasant, the gift shop is nice. The food is average, family friendly, service great, prices reasonable. It is a quiet place to have a relaxing meal. There is not a lot of parking.

Back Home is a local, unique restaurant with homestyle cooking! The best thing about the place is the food :) Upstairs there is a cute boutique as well. If you're looking for a place to eat that is good, quality, country cooking', you should definitely check out Back Home. The staff and servers are very friendly and accommodated our toddler.

My daughter is a picky eater, but she loves the kids' grilled cheese. I love many items on the menu: roast beef, broccoli casserole, chicken salad croissant, and the desserts. We also love the gift shop & warm, friendly staff. We'll be coming back for years to come.

I cannot remember the last time I had cranberry walnut jello salad. What a blast from the past! Great southern staples in a sweet home renovated into restaurant/boutique. Food was good and the service was just ok. The person at the front cashier was terrific. He gave suggestions for other places to visit in the area and showed me an... More
