We enjoyed our meal here, made reservations in advance, don't even think you'll walk up and get in! Our server was very personable, the ambiance was lovely, and food was yummy. All this in a historic old home. What's not to love about that?

Bardstown , KY--let’s face it is filled with tourist attractions and I was under the impression this location would be one of those. Not the case. This is a nice restaurant located on the square in downtown Bardstown. You can’t miss the big old yellow house on the corner. There are even some outside tables should you desire to have a cocktail before dinner. The service is excellent and the prices, which not cheap are reasonable for what you get. Expect to pay from $15 to $25 for most entrees. Parking is on the street. Try the pork chop for $18

What a great find! We're on a motorcycle trip and Bardstown is a planned stop. Yes, it's a small place but the food is exquisite. The hubby and I shared our appetizer, which was "Southern Sushi." This was shrimp, asparagus, and maybe a bit of that fake crab stuff (a minus in my mind), wrapped in Nori, then surrounded by some really good grits with a bit of toasted coconut. The soy sauce wasn't just soy, but it had a bourbon reduction. The wasabi was phenomaly hot, as in good taste with lots of heat. I had Osso Bucco with a great risotto. It was delicious. Hubby had salmon stuffed with Brie and crab. I didn't taste it but he really enjoyed it. Service was really good. Wine prices were quite reasonable. This is fine dining and it was really good and in our opinion pretty decently priced for the quality. If we lived in the area, we would definitely eat here often.

My fiancé had previewed the menu and was very excited about the rabbit pot pie, but when we got there the server said they were out of rabbit. He ordered another meal in its place, but sensing his disappointment she asked the chef if another could be poached and they graciously cooked his fabulous meal! My filet was wonderful as well, and the service was top-notch. Will definitely visit again.

We had lunch here, lunch for 2 with soup was $23! The setting is great, the staff was not very friendly though. They kept asking everyone if they had reservations, we did not, but were seated quickly. The place was full of locals for lunch, mostly seniors, we were the youngest ones there! The food was excellent, the furnishings and the building were amazing.
