Our steak was good; we liked the option of adding the salad bar for an additional charge, less than $3. We did not order an expensive cut of beef and it was fine. The onion rings were tasty, the serving was adequate size, but not overly generous. We have tried onion rings many places, these were better than many we... More

We were staying at a motel close by and thought we'd give this place a try. It was well worth it! Nice variety on the menu with reasonable prices. Very friendly and accommodating wait staff. Server went out of her way to answer out questions. Food was delicious. Would definitely return.

For two road weary travelers, this was an oasis at the end of a long day. Our server, Missi, welcomed us, got our drinks, explained the menu. Our chicken fried steak and fried pork chop specials were excellent, as was the salad bar. And the yeast rolls and cinnamon butter! And the carrot cake! Oh my!

Not many choices other than fast food in this area. It was also listed in a Bourbon Trail magazine. It was hard finding a parking spot, however, no wait time when we got inside. Service was good, the food was very good. Had the sirloin steak.

I went here as it was one exit on the highway away from my hotel and closer than Outback. I am so glad I went here instead. I sat at the bar and CJ was the bartender who was very friendly. I ordered the filet and I found it to be fork tender and was very good. At 8 ounces... More

First time ever at this restaurant. It is not a chain but they have three locations all in the central Kentucky region. We arrived about 6:00 p.m. and were told we would have to wait about 25 minutes for a table. We waited at the bar. Sara served us and provided us with samples of some of the Craft brews... More

I went to cattlemens with my husband and son and we had the best experience ever. The salad bar was amazing. The steak was absolutely perfect, no steak sauce needed. They looked really busy from outside but we were seated within 5 minutes. We've been checked on multiple times by all different workers. Our drinks haven't even had a chance... More

Our waitress Shelby was fantastic. She was quick with refills never had to ask for a single thing. Great communication and a warm and happy personality. I will be a respect costume. Great experience and great atmosphere to be in.

I ordered the sirloin - over half of it was gristle. My husband ordered the ribeye - we weren't even sure it was a ribeye and it wasn't cooked correctly. They were two of the worst steaks we have ever ordered. However, the waitress was very friendly and attentive.

I am sorry thee steaks were not great. We serve premium aged Black Angus Beef, usually served in white tablecloth restaurants at twice our price. I am glad the service was good. I wish you had let us know while in the restaurant so we could have fixed it. Your server or a manager would have resolved the issue. We... More
