If you are visiting Bardstown, I would recommend the Rickhouse Restaurant for a good steak and a bourbon. Both the service and food were excellent. The scalloped potatoes and the macaroni and cheese are very tasty making a good compliment to your entrée.

In the past I have called because they can get really busy. You can even call that day so they can get you on the schedule.
