month. The old house has been renovated and is just lovely for an upscale dinner at a reasonable price point. Entrees are served with a choice of soup, salad or sweet and range from $15 - $20. Appetizers range from $5. - $9. We had the crab cakes to start - the sauce was lovely but the crab cake was on the cold side. The Bourbon Barrel Salmon was outstanding but my lamb special was served less than warm, a overdone for my liking - when speaking with the server, she went back to the kitchen and I was told this was the last of the lamb needed more au jus or some mint sauce to complement.

We had spent the day at the horse park and were looking for a nice meal to end the day. We were so disappointed with the options (truck stops, pizza places, Cracker Barrel) UNTIL WE FOUND RODNEY'S. What a charming restaurant in a large old home in the beautiful town of Georgetown. Although the restaurant had closed, Rodney welcomed us... More

The restaurant is nice inside. There was nothing breath taking about the atmosphere! We were welcomed by the chefs wife who was very pleasant and glad we were there. We ordered the shrimp cocktail which had a wonderful sweet cocktail sauce as an appetizer. The shrimp were just extra large shrimp not prepared any way special. My entree was the... More

I didn't expect to find one of the best restaurants ever in Georgetown, KY. Wow! I put them on the same level as St. Elmo's in Indianapolis. From Tokyo to Jackson Hole, to Chicago to New York, Kauai to Bermuda. This is one of the 3 best in my travels of the world! Food was fantastic and was dining alone... More

We are relatively well traveled, We really didn't expect to find one of the best restaurants in Georgetown. We'll go out of our way in the future to visit this gem in Bluegrass country.

When I first called I was told that they were completely booked. I tried again when we got to town and we were in luck. I can see why they are popular. The atmosphere was charming-in a converted old house. We ordered the warm goat cheese salad that was delicious. The blackened salmon was perfectly prepared and very tasty. Good... More

Moved back to the Bluegrass a year ago and eat at Rodney's every week we are in town. The duck, steaks and off menu items (e.g. smoked salmon fettuccini rival anywhere in the world. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend to all our out of town friends and family. Dr. M and Kelly

The room is cozy and comfortable, waitress exceptional, great bread with olive oil and balsamic reduction the best. The warm goat cheese salad was very good and then everything went down hill. My first order was Duck which came right after my salad and I couldn't figure out how it got out of the kitchen so fast. No surprise it... More

Rodney's is an old house that have been carefully converted into a restaurant. We arrived from out of town without a reservation but the hostess sat us in the bar's "gathering room" and we had full menu service. Each dish was artfully prepared and presented. It was a wonderful end to a full and busy day.

What a find!! Rivals any restaurant in Lexington and maybe Louisville. In an old house that from the 1880's, the layout of the floors is a little choppy. Once seated that's all forgotten. Very comfortable, and the food is exquisite. Careful chef Rodney may come out to your table to visit

Description

month. The old house has been renovated and is just lovely for an upscale dinner at a reasonable price point. Entrees are served with a choice of soup, salad or sweet and range from $15 - $20. Appetizers range from $5. - $9. We had the crab cakes to start - the sauce was lovely but the crab cake was on the cold side. The Bourbon Barrel Salmon was outstanding but my lamb special was served less than warm, a overdone for my liking - when speaking with the server, she went back to the kitchen and I was told this was the last of the lamb needed more au jus or some mint sauce to complement. Upon request for mint sauce they brought out the chefs homemade special steak sauce. It was wonderful! It went well with the roasted lamb. The roasted vegetables were delicious albeit just warm.
