Any time we are in Bardstown we must dine at the Rickhouse. I love the salmon and all the interesting sides. They just added gourmet burgers to the menu which my husband enjoyed. You cannot go wrong here.

Great atmosphere, super service. The food was excellent. They have a nice outdoor patio which is in the shade. Pork chop was amazing but allow 40 minutes to prepare.
