We thought this would be a nice upscale restaurant, since it was rated #1 in Frankfort. NOPE! A loud college town type restaurant. Playing weird trivia questions. Service not the best, food decent but quirky. Not a good place for a couple to chat over...More

Atmosphere was great, nice little spot to try for a date night. Food was good although when you order a BLT you think that it would be more meat than 3 pieces of pork belly bacon. Looks like the employees all enjoy working there. We...More

This is a great little place. We LOVED the atmosphere, especially on the back deck. Food was delicious! We were a little slow to be waited on. There was some confusion as to what wait person we belonged to. We will go back again.

Nice selection of craft brews and specialty drinks, like the blueberry margarita. Lots of yummy shareable food, like deviled eggs with candied pork belly. A fun upbeat atmosphere but the back deck is the best thing about this place. A beautiful view of the Kentucky...More

As a local, I don't go there anymore. Food is mediocre, service is terrible. Had to go to bar to get cocktails.

In good weather sit out on the deck for a river view. My fave dishes are the deviled eggs with pork belly and the crab cakes (very good for inland). Nice selection of beer, craft cocktails, and, of coarse, bourbon.

Stopped in after seeing on TripAdvisor. All of the employees were friendly and helpful. I had the crab cake and fries. Both were delicious! Great bourbon selection as well. Will stop back next time in the area.

My wife and I both had another great meal. She had the Creole hash and eggs and I had the taco quesidillla. Both were excellent as was the bread pudding for dessert. Highly recommend stopping at BOM!

Description
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?
