good solid food - kid friendly, reasonable prices

Stopped here on our way to the Jeep festival when we saw the cool Jeep sign - that we would later see variations of, all over the place. Everything was pretty good here and the service was pretty good. The kids enjoyed their food and the emnu was right on for them and they had coloring pages to... read more

I always enjoy this restaurant. The service is always exceptional. The food is even better. I enjoy seeing the owner and his son lending a helping hand on busy nights. I never mind the wait because I can enjoy a nice glass of wine from a simple but refined list, while hearing the staff conversing with the regular guests. It... More

They have great shrimp, nice and spicey. My kids love the chicken fingers. Have had the salads and they are good. The burgers are good as well. It is pricey for the area but still a nice restaurant. Typically we can get in without any wait as well.

The Hungry Detective stopped by the Hardwood for a take-out order. The Cajun chicken pasta was off the hook as usual. The Cajun chicken pasta is always consistent!!! I had the veal special lightly breaded with asparagus, hollandaise sauce, red skin potatoes and mixed vegetables. My food was packaged well for transport and all the goodies attached(bread, salads and condiments)... More

After church last Sunday we stopped at Hardwood Cafe and were pleasantly pleased. There are several rooms where tables covered with linen are set up; we sat near a big fireplace. The menu is filled with decetious choices and we were very pleased with our meals. The portions very ample in taste as well as appearance.

Been going to Hardwood for years. Menu does not vary much but there is a good vsriety plus they have a pretty good "specials" menu. Love their draft beer. Just recently they added Ky Bourbon Barrell beer on tap. Really a great beer.
