This was a hard to find restaurant in a bit out of the way place 45 minutes from Louisville. So it's not worth driving to from Louisville but definitely a great place if you're in the area. The steaks are fabulous and they serve 130 kinds of bourbon. Try the mac 'n cheese really good as well as all of the sides.

Words cannot explain how cute this place looks first off. You do have to look around for a moment to find the signage to get into the place, but that is part of the fun appeal. Our server (Ok.. gonna spell the name wrong.. but you will pronounce it correct) Niece-E, was amazing. Her knowledge of Bourbon and the menu of the spot was impressive. Her upbeat attitude and helpful nature guided our whole table through some of the Bourbon Flights.

Speaking of Bourbon flights, the bourbon menu and the availability of nice and rare bourbons (even on flights) is the best selection I have found yet.

I cannot speak high enough for the food and the quality and care that went into this as well.

One of the better meals I have had.

We came with a group of Corvettes to visit the Barton Bourbon Distillery in Bardstown, KY. Them on to the Rickhouse Restaurant housed in an old College. The Bourbon flavored Pulled Pork was wonderful . Husband got the pulled Turkey salad with Strawberrys and Blueberrys excellent. Wonderful atmosphere and great service for
25 cars !

It has been a while since we visited this restaurant. What a lovely surprise to see it busy and doing quite well. The memories come back to me from years past when it was once filled with the bustle of hungry patrons. Bardstown is limited on choices of upscale, nicer dining options. I am happy to report that we enjoyed our dinner very much!
