I love the salmon, the shrimp and grits, blackened chicken with creole alfredo, whatever the special is someone in your party should order it. Good selection of local beers and wide selection of KY bourbons. It has great ambience and good service.

We always enjoy going to the Old Owl Tavern. The food is always good and the atmosphere whether inside or out is enjoyable. The prices are good too.

Great food and courteous staff. The corn pudding is to die for. Would like to eat there again if and when we go back to the area for another tour.

I had great shrimp and grits, while my husband chose chicken and ham. All were delicious. We couldn't decide between Derby pie and the orange cake, so ordered both and weren't sorry. And what better than a glass of bourbon to top off a meal?

Our group met for cocktails and stayed for dinner. the menu is different from the Main dining room at the Beaumont, but I think anything could be ordered and served that was on either menu.

We have dinner twice a year when we all stay at the Beaumont Inn and do a weekend of racing at Keenland - so we have eaten here many times and had pretty good food. It is a busy pub on a Friday night - so in some ways it is what it is, but this time it just wasn't... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals we met while shopping. It is downstairs from the main dining room of the inn. It's casual, but not too casual. The food was too much for us to finish. I had the pulled pork -- large delicious sandwich. My husband had the Reuben -- again very large. Also try the fried... More

If you're in the Harrodsburg area, it's worth visiting the Owl Tavern for both the bar and the food. The bar serves delicious, interesting, locally-based mixed drinks of their own invention. The food served is excellent- shrimp and grits, catfish, etc.

We were headed back to the Shaker Village and needed a bite to eat and found this very nice restaurant. It had a nice choice of beer and every bourbon you can find on the bourbon trail.
