Great bar, good food, a place to hang

I went to Old Owl Tavern on a recommendation from Emily Dennis of Big Red Stables, and it was great. I had a shot of their bourbon, Kentucky Owl, which you can't purchase due to limited production and it is terrific. I had ribs which we really good and my other friend had fried chicken with ham... read more

I've visited the Beaumont Inn many times (and am going to stay there in December) but I've never taken the time to dine at Old Owl. I did on May 12 prior to the Harrodsburg Historical Society meeting and I am in love! Wonderful atmosphere and if you can eat on the patio DO IT. The service was top notch... More

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Busy little place - no reservations so be prepared to wait, especially in high season. Enjoyed it so much the first night, we went back the second night! Salmon and crab cakes were very good.

I feel I am pretty fair on my reviews and I usually agree with the reviews I read on here. But I am really disgusted with my experience at this restaurant and not understanding the rave reviews from others. You drive through a pretty run down area of KY to get to the restaurant. The property of the restaurant itself... More

Probably the nicest restaurant in the area. Varied menu items and great food preparation. One of our party needed to eat gluten free and her clear request was not properly met at first, but what our waiter lacked in experience was more than made up for by the courteous manager. Highly recommend.

In a pleasant, informal, club-bar atmosphere, with ordinary service, the food is exceptional and the prices are appropriately reasonable. The barbequed ribs make me ask: will I ever eat more delicious ribs ? And the home-battered, immediately-prepared onion rings (one of my favorite foods) are simply superb. The servings are ample, the personnel is pleasantly gracious and the Beaumont Inn... More

Located at the lovely Beaumont Inn in Harrodsburg, KY, this is a great spot for food and drink in a charming, traditional setting. The feeling is warm with a traditional Southern ambience. The menu focuses on Southern comfort foods. The tavern is a great gathering place for locals and visitors. It is always a pleasure to return and see tradition... More

We stopped in for dinner after a visit to Shaker Village, and it was pretty busy but they got us seated quickly. I had the Reuben which was huge, and delicious! My husband got the tavern dinner, and he really liked it and I tried a bite of his fried chicken and it was so good. They seemed to have... More

Upscale pub food and great bourbon bar. Service is friendly and responsive. The Pub upstairs is designated adults only creating a quiet dinner atmosphere. Lisa, a Pub server was amazing.
