  • Besides the complimentary breakfast, go...

    There were several restaurants to choose from throughout the complex. Since I arrived later in the evening I was happy to find one of the restaurants open for business and had a lovely meal. This restaurant was open 24 hours and I was not the only one from our flight who wanted to eat, the place was packed! Still, as with the desk clerks, the...

  • Have a dish of vacation with your meal

    Patti's specializes in real country cooking, but don't get in a hurry, people seem to linger a little longer here at Patti's. Take a walk through the gardens, water wheel, light display or if your inclined visit the wedding chapel. Hands down its the inch thick pork chop!

  • De'Sha's- Lexington

    This is a great place for regional food in a beautiful, Victorian setting. My mom likes the Kentucky Hot Brown and claims that it's the best to be found. I personally like the shrimp. For brunch you can have a great Hawaiian chicken salad, complete with little banana nut bread muffins. We almost never make it to Lexington for brunch unless we've...


    Right next door to our Super 8 Motel was a BOB EVANS so we just walked over and had dinner there. We chose from the Senior's Menu. Hans and I both had grilled chicken ($7.29) which had a small portion of grilled chicken. Hans chose broccolli florets and I had corn. We both had baked potato with sour cream and butter. The meal also came with banana...

  • Good Food, Nice Staff

    Historic Inn and Tavern -- named for Appalachian hero Daniel Boone -- is located in College Square in the center of Berea where the old Dixie Highway intersects with Berea College campus. It was built in 1909 to house visitors to the college. Boone Tavern works in tandem with Berea College utilizing the Student Labor Program to staff the hotel....

  • Best Food in Frankfort

    Surprisingly fresh seafood from the Gulf daily. Nice view of the River and quaint, smple atmosphere. Everything I've had here has been great. The fried green tomatoes are excelent here and all the food is fresh and hot.

  • two words: Hot Brown

    The Hot Brown one of the original late night drunken snack. Conceptualized in the 1920s as nourishment after a hard night of jitterbugging at the Brown Camberley Hotel in Louisville, KY, the Hot Brown was to take the munchies to a different level. Imagine an open faced turkey sandwich with a rich Mornay sauce covering it and topped with cheese,...

  • amazing homecooking!

    the best breakfast around Elizabethtown. The burgers are made the old fashioned way, big hand pattied, and fully dressed. The deor is just as old fashioned, gas pumps and pedal cars, old bicycles as well. I love this place! The chili and bacon cheese burgers are my fav!

  • A small tour of real Kentucky

    What makes the meal so special is the scenery passing by while you dine, which is prepared right on board in the kitchen car. Served are a variety of entrée choices, including vegetarian dishes, plus a selection of delicious desserts. Cocktails and premium wines are also available. I've tried the Kentucky Hot Brown and the tilapia which are both...

  • Lilly's---Louisville's Gourmet

    Lilly's is a Kentucky hot spot, most notable because it is Chef Kathy Cary's gourmet playground. The restaurant has received nationwide acclaim being featured in Racheal Ray's magazine, Bon Appetit, The NY Times Editor's book of 40 great restaurants, and USA Today. Did I mention the Chef was a nominee for the James Beard Best Chef of the Southeast?...

  • Bristol Bar & Grille--Local Louisville...

    This Louisville restaurant opened its doors in 1977 in the Highlands along Bardstown Road. It now has 5 locations including a cafe located inside the Speed Art Musuem. The fare at this Louisville landmark is typical steaks, pasta, fish, burgers, salads, and sandwiches. The place is best known for its elaborate Sunday brunch complete with fried...

  • Napa River Grill--Cheaper than a trip to...

    Napa River Grill is a moderately upscale restaurant serving Northern California fare alongside one of Louisville's more extensive wine lists. The restaurant is a 5 time winner of Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence and has won several "Best of Louisville" awards, including Best New Restaurant, Best Restaurant Decor, Best Caesar Salad, and Favorite...

  • Seviche--The Best Seafood in Louisville!

    Seviche is a hot new Latin restaurant along the infamous restaurant row (Bardstown Road). The avocado colored exterior demands to be noticed as does the slightly refined mustard interior. A quaint patio invites people watching and on the weekends is the place to see and be seen. The restaurant was voted the Best New Restaurant in Louisville and...

  • Goose Creek Diner---Hole In the Wall w/...

    Goose Creek Diner is a hole in the wall where locals congregate to get all the heart stopping fixings. The interior is loud and rather tacky with bright oranges and purples along with cinder block walls. The one truly surprising feature the diner has is a brunch with live jazz on Sunday afternoons. It is also a place where you can try a Kentucky...

  • Lemongrass---A Mediocre Mix of the East

    Lemongrass offers an eclectic blend of Chinese, Thai, & Vietnamese fare in a low budget type atmosphere. They have several lunch specials for $5.50 and the house specials hit a still low $10.95. In a place that offers 3 different kinds of food I made the mistake of opting for the Chinese, which was uninspiring. I've heard better things about both...

  • El Nopalito--Cheap Authentic Mexican

    Authentic Mexican from a real Mexican family in a laid back environment. The service here is SPECTACULAR....which means this is a great place to get in and out for lunch midweek. This isn't a place to go out of your way for, but if you find youself in J-town around lunch it is a great place to drop in. Every meal starts with fresh chips and salsa...

  • 2 Hahn's Mongolian Grill---Great Quick...

    The Mongolian grill is based on the alleged custom of 13th Century Mongol warriors, who would place their steel shields over the campfire until they glowed red-hot, then stir-fry tidbits of whatever they had to eat on this rough-and-ready stovetop, using their swords as spoons. The procedure is simple: Order lunch ($6.95 for one trip through the...

  • Tumbleweed---Uninspiring Southwest

    Tumbleweed is a Southwestern chain restaurant headquartered in Louisville. The chain offers your typical Southwestern style dishes in a casual ambience of Western and Native American pictures, potted cacti and other bric-a-brac. The best thing about this place is its waterfront loaction along the heart of the Ohio River in Waterfront Park. I must...

  • Harper's---Best Brunch on Hurstborne

    Nestled in Louisville's Hurstbourne area and neighborhoods, Harper's has become a local landmark on the East Side. The well-manicured landscape will lead you to the heavy brass doors, landing you inside a rich environment streamed with light, resembling a mountain retreat as much as an urban restaurant. Settle in with your troop to a spacious booth...

  • Mark's Feed Store---Average BBQ

    What started in a historic building that had been used since 1933 as “Hancock’s Feed Store” in Middletown has become a four location chain in Louisville. The restaurant serves BBQ with two signature sauces that are bottled and sold in the store. Louisville Magazine’s readers poll voted them “Best of Louisville” for both BarBQ and Ribs six years in...

  • Old Stone Inn---Relaxing Sunday Brunch

    The Old Stone Inn, a national historic landmark, was built in 1817 by slave labor with stones taken from a quarry on the farm site of this frontier coach stop. Its two-foot thick stone walls still bear bullet holes from the Civil War. It has served as a tavern, stagecoach stop, inn, residence, and since the 1920s, a restaurant. Accommodation is...

  • Claudia Sanders---Authentic KFC Country

    This restaurant is as much of a tourist attraction as it is to get a taste of Kentucky homecooking. Col. Harland Sanders built this restaurant, named after his wife in 1964, after he had become a millionaire from the sale of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Guests ariving at Claudia Sanders enter an Italian porcelain tiled foyer with a grand antebellum...

  • Stoney River---Great Steaks

    Stoney River is a high end spin off of the popular O'Charleys chain that boasts legendary steaks. The restaurant works hard to fit in the already saturated steakhouse niche. The heavy wood decor and high back leather booths give it a lodge like feel, complimented by a large square bar in the center of the restaurant, and a few couches cozied up by...

  • Papa Leno's- Berea

    Some good things just never die. I’ve been eating at this place for nearly 17 years now. And, unfortunately, I’ve been ordering the same thing. Hot ham and cheese on homemade bread or a bowl of Wisconsin cheese soup. I don’t know why. Habit, maybe? But anyway, this is a great little place on College Square, around the corner from Boone Tavern. It’s...

  • Natasha's- Lexington

    Lexington needed a place like this. This is the place that you eat at when you want to forget that you're in Kentucky. VERY European. (Although they say it's more like Manhattan.) Could have something to do with the fact that the owner is Russian. Check out the gift shop with lots of international stuff. It changes very often and there’s always a...

  • Atomic Cafe-Lexington

    In the summertime there is nowhere better to be than in the patio area of the Atomic Cafe, listening to music and eating. I LOVE this place. I can proudly say that I introduced all of my ex-boyfriends to it. It's Caribbean food at its best. Although the service is a little slow, and the food pricey, the taste all makes up for it. You should...

  • Halls on the River- Winchester

    Although technically in Winchester, this restaurant is right over the county line on the other side of the river from Richmond and we tend to forget that it is not ours. It’s been around for a long time. I used to think that I was a jinx to it because every time I ate there something bad would happen to it the next day-it got flooded, caught on...

  • Elvira's- Richmond

    My friend Jose owns this restaurant that has only been open for a couple of months. He used to have another restaurant called Pranza Dimorare that served both Mexican and Italian, but they moved to another (better) location and now serve only Italian. The new place is better because since it is located on the Bypass it gets more traffic and is...

  • West Kentucky's First 3-Star Restaurant

    Please CLICK photoI was just amazed when my parents took our family to eat at the Brass Latern Restuarant in Aurora, Kentucky...why? Well, it's really the only fine restaurant near to where they lived on Kentucky Lake. It has five unique dining rooms that serve a total of 208 people.Garden Room (80 people)Fireplace Room ( 65 people)Front Room (30...

  • Corbin, Home of Kentucky Fried Chicken

    Colonel Harlan Sanders was my kind of man. His resume included: farm hand, streetcar conductor, soldier, and railroad fireman. He studied law by correspondance and parcticed in Justice of the Peace courts, operated an Ohio River steamboat ferry, sold tires, and operated a service station. At the age of 65, now retired, he took his $105 per month...


    As anywhere in the USA, fast food can be found all over the place. The ones we like most a Fazoli's, Wendy, Bob Evans, Kracker Barrel ens.Some fine local restaurants are to be found too and especially the Amish people run a few excellent restaurants. Enjoy. My favorite is spare ribs !!!!

  • Try the BBQ Ham

    OK this place looks like it should be burnt to the ground, and by the amount of grease on everything I'm surprised it hasn't! But the long red shotgun style building of Carr's Barn chow is excellent, and the ham is worth the trip alone. If you can overlook the fact that this place couldn't pass a health code I'm guess the inspector leave it open...

  • Buck's the old...

    Buck's the old Mayflower HotelNew york bar atmosphere with piano player, great decor, fantastic bar !The Best kept secret in Louisville. Soft shell crabs (when available..they serve the whaler size crabs which are very select and difficult to find..Buck the owner is from the Eastern Shore of Maryland and is able to have the crabs...

  • Kurtz Restaurant

    The food here is VERY traditional, southern, Kentucky-style, country cooking. The food is pretty good though, and I've been here twice with my grandparents (they love this place). So, if you want something authentic, check this place out. AND, to boot, it's in an old, historic mansion, across the street from My Old Kentucky Home. the...

  • Jack Quinn's Irish Pub

    Really neat Irish Pub atmoshphere. The food is excellent, and I'm sure the Guinness is too! :) There was also live music when I was there, so it was a fun place. And the dress is casual. I ate at this place with a friend of mine... good call John195123! :) beef boxty or perhaps, fish n chips

    If you like catfish, try Shady Cliff on beautiful Lake Malone. It's the best.Restaurant overlooks beautiful lake area. Can sit on deck or inside and see the lake and boats.Go fried catfish(not greasy), potatoes with onions, slaw or house salad, sawdust pie.p.s., appetizer; bloomin' onion

  • Several favorite restaurants in...

    My favorite restaurants in Louisville are Jack Fry's, Timmothy's, Vincenzo's (wonderful italian) and the Vietnam Kitchen. The later is an unassuming small restaurant in a strip mall, but it is very authentic with great food. To see more restaurant reviews in the Louisville area see the Louisville Courier Journal's webpage:...

  • Kentucky has many excellent...

    Kentucky has many excellent restaraunts, but my personal favorite is Moonlight barbeque. It's located in Owensboro, KY. They have the best barbeque I've ever tasted!Another great thing about Moonlight BBQ is the homestyle sides they have. They have everything you could want. They have homemade potato salad, BBQ baked beans, greens, macaroni and...
