This is a family run restaurant with good home cooking. The homemade soup was flavorful and hot. Best part of the meals. Enjoyed an average salad with good dressing.

Kurtz is a Bardstown must eat restaurant. Between the traditional Hot Brown, their Bread pudding with Bourbon sauce, and a host of homemade confections, this is the place to put at the top of your list when visiting Bardstown.

It seems that this may be a restaurant that needs a bit of updating on their menu. Our table had fresh flowers and our service was swift. However our food was just average.. Soup was so so. Reuben's were good. Pumpkin pie was the standout!...More

Reservations not required, but it never hurts to call. I don't remember the hours but do remember that they are (or were) closed on Sundays and Mondays, and also from Jan 1 to Mar 1 for the cold season.
