Waited 45 minutes for burger.....asked waitress about it & she came back to say it still wasn't done. Worst service ever!!! Never did get the burger so after an hour we left, but not before waitress talked crap loudly to other workers in diner.

Other reviewers warned that the catfish is THE menu selection to go for. We followed their advice. It was good. Not outstanding - but good. Cole slaw was way too sweet for my taste. We weren't offered dessert, so we inquired about taking some with us at the register. They were out of the cobbler they were featuring, and the... More

We've eaten at Laura's several times. They serve a fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are famous for their fried chicken on Sunday's. Servers are friendly and Laura is involved in every aspect making sure everyone is happy and the food is good. On Sunday's they have a buffet but menu ordering is always an option. All in all, great... More

We stopped by for lunch. The menu has a wide variety of goods from catfish to steaks and sandwiches. Three of us had full meals for a little over $30.00. The service was quick and she was attentive. Locals call this restraunt Hilltop.

This restaurant has excellent catfish. However the service was mediocre and the log chairs uncomfortable. We ate there after the noon crowd so they were not too busy and we waited for someone to take our order. It was good when we got it.

If you like a large serving of bland food this is the restaurant for you. We were intrigued because they specialized in catfish. I had the blackened catfish and my husband had the fried catfish. It was just okay. It was a huge serving but it just lacked taste. The service was okay. The red flag should have been that... More

Great catfish in a friendly, small town diner! We were in town to visit Mammoth Cave national park and had dinner at Laura's on our first night. We were told they had great catfish, and we were not disappointed! Friendly staff and full of locals!

Kentucky country food for locals. Two miles out of town at "the top of the hill" serving great burgers (huge ones) and claiming "the area's best cat fish. We were looking for authentic locale food and a ranger at Mammoth Cave N P (about 10 miles away) suggested we might like it. We loved it. Clean and quick. Jammed with locals. We had the "all you can eat" deep fried cat fish with coleslaw, fries, hush puppies, and wished we'd had time and space for the home made pie. A unique and delightful experience.
