Great choice

One of the good options in Somerset. Parking is easy. The view of the lake is fantastic. Especially sunset. Food options are plentiful. Loved the small filet. Tasty and tender Desserts did not make me happy though. Even though portion was small like it should be it was way to sugary.

I have not eaten at Guthrie's since it was in Jamestown until today. I've thought about the wonderful filet mignon a lot over the past few years and always seemed to criticize all other steaks from other restaurants in comparison to Guthrie's. Today I was surprised that the filet was as good if not better then I remembered, the atmosphere... More

I was meeting my long distance boyfriend here for dinner and we arrived at sunset. The view was gorgeous and the food was really good with reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and professional. It was a great experience. I would definitely go back if I were to find myself in Somerset again.

I've given this restaurant two chances. Service was slow. Food was basic and cold. Ambiance is just not there. Older furnishings, worn looking decor and the view of the lake is excellent if you are lucky enough to get a table by the small windows looking down to the water, otherwise you would never know this place sat high above...

I have ate here in the past before it was the Guthrie's House. Please understand I do not like seafood of any kind. I was happy to see they also have burgers (Which are good) and Flat Pizza for those that do not like seafood. We went when it wasn't busy and got to sit and had a nice view... More

An incredible view right on the edge of Lake Cumberland. The menu is broader than might be expected. Steaks are delicious and combo (meat and seafood/chicken) can be a real treat.

Guthries offers a great menu with somewhat "up-scale" options. All that we have tried have been delicious, from the fried catfish to the steak salad. Every Monday thru Thursday, they offer a $10 special. How about perfectly cooked, 10 oz. prime rib and potato for $10? It was wonderful.

Love the food at Guthrie's, but wish they would have white table cloths and glass on top with a small bud vase with just a sprig of fresh flowers on each table. It would cut down on a lot of the room noise and add to the wonderful food, service and best view on the lake.

Guthrie's is the best place to eat in Burnside for sure! The food is good - I love the Southwestern Grilled Chicken Salad! The salmon is also good. The prices are a little inflated, but not horribly. Some of the servers are very attentive, some could use some a little refresher course. All in all, I like it enough to... More

The servers were clear that whatever would facilitate their serving the table was a priority. What this really means: Don't have any needs. We were with a big party (50 ppl) and were given two servers. Poor management in my view. Food was so-so.
