Nice view,good food!

This was our first visit to Guthrie's. We ate inside but had a nice view of the the water and sunset. They have a nice cocktail menu but the bourbon list , my husbands favorite, way very limited. We ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms for our free appetizer ( thanks Holiday Inn Express) and they... read more

We were recommended to try this place from our hotel. We sat outside on the deck facing the lake. Beautiful view of Lake Cumberland. We had the chicken nachos for an appetizer- it was just okay. Extremely large portion- as it was noted on menu- but we were never given appetizer plates to eat it- and yes we did not... More

THE best chicken nachos EVER! And they are a huge appetizer! Comes out on a platter that is about 12x17. Homemade nacho chips were delicious! The view of Lake Cumberland is awesome so eat outside if possible. Food was great but the service was just ok. I think our waiter was relatively new because there were some items messed up... More

This is quite possibly one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Hand-cut steaks, huge wedge salad with house-made bleu cheese dressing. The Thursday dinner special of 6oz sirloin and 3 fried shrimp is fantastic!! Great selection of craft beers, wines and well made cocktails. This is not a fancy 5 star joint but a very... More

Once again, we had a great time with great service at Guthrie's. We were a party of eight and just had appetizers. The food was delicious and even though they were very busy we had excellent service. Will recommend to everyone.

I loved the Bourban Sauce on my steak. Everything we ate was wonderful and seasoned perfectly. I've never had a steak cooked to perfection - but this one was! Loved the waitress- very personable and checked on us frequently. I had a mixed green salad and the dressing was homemade ranch- wonderful stuff! Don't be swayed by the price- it's... More

I bought an appetizer of artichoke and spinach dip. The dip was slightly cold and not too tasty. It was $10. Being a vegetarian it is hard to find items on menus and at Guthrie's this appetizer was the only vegetarian item.

My husband and I regularly eat here. The food is always good, and the waitstaff friendly. The Martini flights are exceptional. Sitting out on the porch in the summer is spectacular, with the sunset view in the evening over Lake Cumberland. For a romantic, delicious meal, you can't go wrong.

The NY strip steak special with crab stuffed poppers & potato au-gratin. Steak was correctly cooked to order (rare) but was a little lacking in flavor - might have been a cheaper cut or frozen too long. Poppers had a lot of heat (a good thing) but were a tad underdone - the potatoes were heaven sent. Do know -... More
