Phenomonal!

Quite simply, a restaurant deserving of its strong acclaim. Folks mentioned they had a hard time finding it due to a lack of a large sign apparently due to a local ordnance. Entrance is on the northeast corner of the Whiskey Museum. Considered the salmon or chicken cordon crepes but decided to... read more

Nice atmosphere but the food could have been better. The steaks we had could have been seasoned better.

Had dinner tonight at the rickhouse. It was delicious, as always. Mariah was our server and she was very helpful with making decisions about the menu. Our drinks stayed full and she was super sweet. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family, and have them ask for Mariah! Would give more than 5 stars if possible!

We've dined here several times and always had a good meal. The steaks are what we usually order. The waitress was friendly and attentive.

We had a terrific meal at the Rickhouse. We were undecided which of the top rated restaurants we should dine in but were very pleased with our decision. From the moment you drive up to the venue, the place is very inviting. It's not well signed but go through the big iron gates on the left hand side and its... More

We went to the Rickhouse during our bourbon trail weekend trip. The steak and pasta were both really good and the staff was all very friendly. The only thing was that the mixed drinks are expensive and the prices are a mystery until you get your bill. Great atmosphere!

Dinner was amazing! The prices were fair for the quality and portions. Everyone enjoyed their food, most of us had steak which was delicious. My brother had the chicken Cordon Bleu crepes and it was all he could talk about the rest of the night. So happy we found this gem!

A little difficult to find at night, but worth it. Expect very "American" food. The service was excellent!

Tried this for the first time with some friends. It's a fancier sit down place (think rustic candle light style atmosphere). I Would not recommend children unless they are WELL behaved. Food was good. Nothing spectacular, but nothing was bad either. I'm sure I will be back in the future.
