This is a MUST if you are in the Bardstown, Ky. Area. This is possibly the best meal I can remember. The food, service, pricing, ambience, comfort....all at one unique, interesting place. A little hard to find, but, well worth the effirt

Great place to dine! Excellent menu selection. The atmosphere was very cool as it was in the lower level of a brick building. There desserts were great also. Normally I skip dessert, but they were too good to pass up.

Steak dinner with wild mushrooms that were bourbon infused, wild mushroom ravioli, 11 cheese MacNCheese, charred caesar salad was a fantastic meal and a great way to end our vacation. The portions are huge and so are the sides. Excellent service!

O.K., it's a little hard to find, but once you locate it, it's worth the trouble. The service was great and we never needed anything. The crab cakes for an appetizer were amazing. So yummy. The old fashion drink I ordered was really good. We...More

Two of us had meat (rib-eye and filet), which was flavorful and tender. The mushroom ravioli was amazing. The place is pricey, but worth it.
