We have dinner twice a year when we all stay at the Beaumont Inn and do a weekend of racing at Keenland - so we have eaten here many times and had pretty good food. It is a busy pub on a Friday night - so in some ways it is what it is, but this time it just wasn't... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals we met while shopping. It is downstairs from the main dining room of the inn. It's casual, but not too casual. The food was too much for us to finish. I had the pulled pork -- large delicious sandwich. My husband had the Reuben -- again very large. Also try the fried... More

If you're in the Harrodsburg area, it's worth visiting the Owl Tavern for both the bar and the food. The bar serves delicious, interesting, locally-based mixed drinks of their own invention. The food served is excellent- shrimp and grits, catfish, etc.

We were headed back to the Shaker Village and needed a bite to eat and found this very nice restaurant. It had a nice choice of beer and every bourbon you can find on the bourbon trail. Even had a that are very sought after, like Pappy Van Winkle. They serve everything from ribs to fish, but I went with... More

The tavern is located below the formal dining room for the Beaumont Inn. This is a small, cozy place for an intimate dinner or gathering of friends. The food was excellent, service was warm and friendly. Full bar service featuring an extensive bourbon selection was an added bonus.

I've always loved this place; guess that's why it bothers me so much to see it less than top-shelf. Food is still good but portion sizes have diminished to the size of 'tasters'. The server seemed a little embarrassed to bring our food - and even more so when we asked for bread (their cornbread was once best of the... More

Very nice and unique place. My daughter and I had appetizer and dinner at bar. Food was great and priced appropriately. Wide selection of burbon whoch should be the case given its location to the Burbon Trail. Gets busy later in the evening.
