My friends and I were there in mid afternoon. Service was very slow, even though we were the only guests. The food was excellent and good portions..I would highly recommend this place but be prepared to wait for your food. The staff was very friendly.

I became emotional eating here. The food was exactly like my grandmother's farm-fresh cooking. Thankfully they had Mint Juleps and Bourbon Sours to help me deal. Wonderful place to eat.

A group of five couples from our neighborhood took another Bourbon Trail Trip together for the second year. Between our Maker's Mark and Jim Beam tours, we stopped at Kurtz for lunch.
