What a way to end a great day! After exploring Bourbon country we needed some food to soak up the booze. One of our group reminisced of her Sorority days spent in Halls. Intent on finding it, we drove the scenic winding roads on the hunt for Halls. As we pulled up out front I wasn't sure what to expect.... More

Hall's on the river is a nice drive out in the country from which ever direction you travel from. Not hard to get to and definitely worth the trip! I've been 5 or 6 times in the last 12 months. Shrimp & Grits are excellent! So are the Crab cakes! You get 3 of those. The wait staff are friendly... More

We also had a chicken sandwich with French fries and onion rings. Our friends had the po boy shrimp lunch with fries. The beer list is short, but what they have... More

We took the scenic route to Hall's with the windows down. We arrived around seven and were immediately seated on the deck! Our waitress was attentive but not overly. We ordered the beer cheese (our favorite) & we both ordered the catfish entree. The catfish was really good, the slaw was okay but needed seasoning & the fries were crunchy... More

I ate at Hall's on the River as a kid. The last time I was there, it wasn't that good so I haven't been back. I am not sure if they are under new management or what, but it was great when we went there last week! I had crab cakes with spinach and it was delicious. Everyone in our... More

Went there for our anniversary dinner thanks to the recommendation of a co-worker. Didn't even know they existed since they are a but of the beaten path. Not a complaint. The food was delicious and plentiful, the drinks were great and the beer cheese was awesome. The service was awesome too. They are more than an hour's drive for us... More

Had supper here. Really nice atmosphere and the food was good. The pulled pork platter was full and good. And the fried catfish was perfectly crunchy. But the best part was the appetizer the fried banana rings were delicious and the beer cheese was the best!!! Will definitely be back

We really enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere. We came at night and we really want to come back when we can sit outside and enjoy the river and take a hike on the accompanying nature trail. Staff was so friendly and environment was realxed.
