We visit the Old Owl all the time. Great bourbon flights, good drinks all around, actually. Besides the bar, the food is the best in Harrodsburg, in my opinion. I especially love the fish with homemade tartar sauce. It's just perfect. Atmosphere is cozy and warm and there is outdoor seating on the patio for those beautiful Kentucky nights. I'd... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The first night I had the salmon with dill sauce which was delicious and the second night I had a steak which was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Try the corn pudding, it's amazing and so are the mashed potatoes. They have a really impressive bourbon selection and they also have their... More

Rest of meal came out in a short time and everything was delicious. Then we ordered the Carmel crunch cake and it was so good. Great way to end the meal. Server... More

Had a great dinner here with wonderful service! The babyback ribs were falling off the bone and covered in a homemade bbq sauce served with great french fries and beans for $19. The special was chicken breast with ham, asparagus, mushrooms and Bernaise sauce served with mashed potatoes and a salad. The salad was nothing special: not very fresh but... More

The Old Owl Tavern was part of a weekend trip of distillery visits, a bourbon tasting and weekend away. The Tavern is part of the historic Beaumont Inn and owned by the same family. The Beaumont was my starting point on the bourbon trail. Ate in the restaurant once, sat there for cocktails several times. Service was friendly and spot-on... More

I enjoyed a great grilled Ky catfish fillet with steak fries(as good as they get) and a succotash mixture. My wife had a great pork tenderloin with apple walnut garnish... More

We stopped here on vacation for a bite. The bruschetta was fresh and the best I have ever eaten. I highly recommend the Big Daddy Barbeque platter. The ribs were so tender, the meat fell off the bones and the shredded pork was exceptional. My wife ordered the salmon croquet special and she loved it. Our tea glasses were never... More

The inn is in the heart of the Kentucky bourbon trail. I enjoyed the opportunity in the Old Owl Tavern to sample different Kentucky bourbons.

Hometown cooking that wasn't just greasy and fried. They had trendy, healthy options and the authentic KY food was prepared with the right amount of "southern" touch but not overkill! We ate there twice- it was so good! and, the prices are fantastic.
