Fava's is one of our family favorites. They have a nice atmosphere. Their catfish is some of the best I've ever had. Downtown location makes it great for eating and shopping.

As others have shared, this is a cute little restaurant that many locals frequent, always a good sign. Hub had the cat fish, which is one of their specialites and he was not disappointed. I had the chili that was the consistancy of a maid rite, I did not care for it at all. I also had a grilled pimento cheese sandwich which was really great, I've never had pimento cheese before. We come to the area of year for Breyerfest, will give it a try next year, worth a trip back.

We found this little restaurant on Trip Advisor. It is a small restaurant in the heart of Georgetown. The night we visited it was very busy but service was good. The menu is large going from sandwiches to gumbo to steak and salmon. Several homemade pies were on the menu. I had the hot brown thats flavor rivals the larger "refined" restaurants. We will definately stop again when in the area!

From the mural on the wall to the 50's-era tables Fava's is the real deal. With a history dating back more than 100 years this friendly place will have you feeling like one of the locals who frequently gather to chat and dine. The waitresses are friendly, the pies homemade, and the "frickles" (fried dill pickles) worth a try. In the middle of old downtown Georgetown this is definitely a place to experience good time KY casual eating. Breakfast is good too!

This quaint restaurant is in the middle of downtown Georgetown. The burgers are to die for & if you're here on a Friday night, the catfish is a must! Also, save room for the selection of pies. The prices are here very reasonable & it is quite kid friendly. During lunch hours, it can get busy & the volume goes up so be prepared. You are as apt to see businessmen in suits rubbing elbows w/ regular townfolk. I am a local & can attest to the ambiance, charm, $ value of this place.
