Tourist trap, lunch meat hot brown
Nov 2021 • Couples
The high ratings are very misleading. I guess nostalgic tourists with easy to please palates write a lot of reviews. This place is an overpriced, small portion tourist trap. The building is old and cool. The staff were miserable like most nowadays since no one wants to work. Waited 70 minutes. Not handicap accessible. KY hot brown was complete garbage. $13 for a single of everything: piece of bread, one slice each of low end lunch meat ham and turkey, bland sauce, no melted monterey jack, a single burnt piece of bacon, and a single slice of hothouse tomato tomato. Wife’s club had same junk meat, small portion of meat, two pieces of bacon and a 3” fried green tomato slice. Her mashed potatoes were cold and had an odd gray color. The fried pickles did not hold breading. This lunch was low end diner fare. Avoid this tourist trap if you actually like food.

Great Stay!
Sep 2021 • Couples
A fantastic stay at the Talbott Inn and Tavern! We were in town visiting for a distillery tour and spent one evening enjoying this charming little place in historic Bardstown. Our room at the Inn was spacious and equipped with modern amenities, but had loads of charm with exposed brick walls and a large closet with a cool old safe door. We cozied up at the bar in the tavern for a fun evening of live music and great bourbon. Chad and Detra were dynamite behind the bar….crafting delicious cocktails and offering exceptional service! Great place! Hope to return again soon!!

Great stay in Bardstown

We enjoyed our visit to the Talbott Inn/Tavern. Our bartender and waiter was Ryan and he was great. Our dinner was wonderful, the Walnut chicken was amazing. We all had a good time, I definitely recommend this place.

Cool history, (Oldest Bourbon Bar in the World) and really good food. The chicken fried steak was really good. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.

World’s Oldest Bourbon Bar.
Oct 2020 • Friends
Whether the tales from their history with Jesse James and the bullet holes in the wall are true or not, this place has a history and is a big reason to visit. Bar area was quaint, but a little small.

Great bourbon selection
Jan 2020 • Couples
My husband and I visited Talbott tavern on our anniversary. I had the shrimp and grits with bread pudding for dessert. He had the burger with berry cobbler for dessert. Both were very good but nothing out of the ordinary. Our drinks were delicious. Their bourbon selection is unmatched. When we were done in the dining room we went over to the bar area and watched a local band. We had a really good time but the service on the bar side was pretty bad and we waited a long time between drinks. This also happened to several people sitting around us. All in all I would recommend that if you are going here you just get dinner and a drink and head out for the night.

So much history
Jan 2020 • Couples
This hotel dated back to the period of Jesse and Frank James. Abraham Lincoln visited. Visit the Jesse James room - see holes in the walls shot by Jesse James. Wall Murals on three walls mostly destroyed by fire. History posters everywhere in the building. This is also a bed & breakfast. Great menu. The town is full of historical sights.

Great B&B
Oct 2019 • Couples
My wife and I only stayed one night but the people were courteous and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it and would stay there again. Parking is a bit of a problem. The location is right down town close to restaurants and shopping. Their breakfast was very good.

Small selection of food items; nice atmosphere
Oct 2019
The history surrounding the building was tremendous; I highly recommend touring the area for it's unique history. The menu is limited, but we did find items to try that were periodic of the times back then. It was good and I urge you to ask for the bacon marmalade.

Rich with History and Best Bourbon Selection
Sep 2019
This is a must do when in the area. It is rich with history. King Louie, Abraham Lincoln, and Jessie James are just a few of the famous people who have stayed and visited this establishment. The building is fascinating and the bourbon selection is top notch -- W.L. Weller is on their bourbon list. Impressive! The staff is friendly, the drinks are wonderful and there was a talented band playing. Overall, great experience.
