I have been here a few times, and each time has been a positive experience! Menu offerings change, so that’s fun if you’re somewhat adventurous. The food is good, the service is good, and employees are very knowledgeable of food allergies. The only drawback for...More

This is listed as a top choice for gluten free restaurants in Frankfort. The cook told us they cannot avoid cross contamination in their kitchen

I wished I lived in Frankfort so that I could eat here every day. The setting on Main Street and the Kentucky River is lovely - great views from the shade-drenched deck - and the food is terrific. The food menu is extensive and eclectic...More

Excellent food, friendly people and great service. There is still some construction going on right next door, but you can easily find parking across the street. If the weather permits eat outside on the balcony overlooking the Kentucky River. Whatever is on special is most...More

Located in beautiful Historic Downtown Frankfort, Kentucky on the Kentucky River, Bourbon on Main is the dream of Frankfort natives who live and breathe bourbon and love to share their passion. They get inspired by the mixology and culinary delights of city life, but love the simple welcoming hospitality of small town living. They wished for their community better food, better cocktails and access to craft beers, as well as better places for the people in the town they love to gather, feast, and have fun! They also wanted to showcase all the beautiful things Kentucky culture has to offer to people from outside the community. So when you come to Kentucky, make sure to put Historic Downtown Frankfort on the top of your list. Bourbon On Main is located in a perfect spot for launching a day's worth of bourbon tours. Start with Buffalo Trace, less than 5 minutes away. Jim Beam tours take place in Clermont, but you can still check in on their large Frankfort operations on your short 20-minute drive out to Woodford Reserve, Four Roses and Wild Turkey. To get your feet wet, try one of our Bourbon 101 flights, where you can learn to discriminate the flavors you'll find along the Kentucky backroads. For you history buffs, you can't do better than visiting the two State Capitals, Kentucky State History Museum (2 blocks from Bourbon On Main) and taking a walk through the civil war historic site, Fort Hill, where you can capture breath-taking views of the city and the Kentucky River valley. Stroll the historic downtown shops and antique malls, and when you are ready to relax pop over to Bourbon on Main for a delicious meal or an evening with friends, cocktails and shared plates on the back deck overlooking the Kentucky River. So drop on by anytime. We love to talk bourbon and we love to talk Kentucky. What story do you have to tell?
