Had not been to Hall's in years, but recently ate dinner there with 4 adults. We had beer cheese appetizers. I had Salmon that was very good with great flavor. Others had Hot Browns and all were very pleased. One member had two Bloody Mary drinks that she loved, the others had great Margaritas. We were all very pleased with... More

It's Mother's Day. Restaurant half full and it still took 2 hours to get food. We had 14 people, but half of them were kids meals. Ever waited two hours for food with 6 kids? Hell's on the River. No excuse for slow service on a holiday with half empty tables. Looks like it's been bought by people who have... More

Good Shrimp Po Boy with slaw and good fries on the deck overlooking the river. Good Sweet Tea and friendly servers. Lots of KY Specialties on the menu (Beer Cheese, a "Half Brown" at lunch). Near civil war earthworks hike and Fort at Boonesboro. Keep driving past Hall's 10-15-Min to see beautiful horse farms, fences, and rock walls along the... More

The location is lovely, overlooking a scenic river, after a short scenic drive. Casual, but nice. They graciously accommodated a group of 15 with a smattering of special requests. Veggies, remember you are in Kentucky. The vegetarian options were fried mushrooms, pickles, peppers, or cheese or a green salad. Elvis karaoke in the bar wasn't detected in the dining room....

So disappointed with our dinner! Four in our party- we ordered frog legs, shrimp and grits, and seafood platter. Not fresh, not good- not the same as before. Do not waste your time or money.

After a fun day of visiting Natural Bridge, I recommended this place to my friends. Oops! Luckily after this visit we are still friends. The inside decor is really dated! Wood paneling is Not in style anymore. We arrived early around 4:15 and there were only a few other people eating. It took too long to get our food and... More

We loved the atmosphere and the food was great but for the price it's not worth it. For a place that charges that much you would think they could serve some rolls and maybe some bigger and more sides. My bake potato was smaller than a baseball. The salads, steak and seafood were good and the staff was great to.... More

I think this place is under new management as least I hope it is. Years ago it was great and had a great name for good food. It has been some time since I was there. There were two tables occupied in the entire place. We were not given bread and told it was only on request. I ordered oysters.... More

I have eaten at Hall's on the River many times --- some times it is better than others. But, my last visit was beyond belief. The table was dirty and never cleaned; our waitress had dirty fingernails (I mean garden digging dirty); the fish was slimy and the rest of the food cold. We pointed out to the waitress who... More
