good food - access issues

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... read 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.

We went to Guthrie's while visiting Lake Cumberland! It was absolutely delicious! Get the chicken nachos as an appetizer! The chips are home made and so good!

I don't know who the Guthries were/are/may be - but I know this, the personal touch is evident in every part of their operation. Nothing fancy, just excellent. This is my favorite place in Somerset and has never disappointed. Enjoy!

I was in town for a business meeting and visited Guthrie's and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was great and the food was very good. I would recommend a visit if you're in Somerset.

Guthrie's is basically a Mom & Pop restaurant that tries very hard to provide quality food and ambience. The food can be very good, but then again it can be lacking in quality. I also find the wait staff to be a little unsure of themselves, as what comes out of the kitchen is not consistent from visit to visit.... More

We always sit on the deck overlooking the river, so romantic. out the food, yum yum. We never drive through Somerset without stopping here. Thanks for a great evening. Perhaps we always stop on the correct day?

I had a NY Strip steak with Kentucky Bourbon Glaze, sauteed onions and grilled shrimp. My sides were a baked potato and Caesar salad. For dessert I had a Caramel Pecan cheesecake. The meal was wonderful. The steak was very tender and the bourbon glaze was great, it added a great flavor to the steak. The potato was very good... More
