Great for a sports bar because there are a lot of tv's. The drinks were great (reason for 4 star instead of 3) Two people in our party had the wings and they said they were very good. Another friend had the fish taco's he said they were dry with no taste. I had the shrimp taco's, the shrimp was... More

We stopped by before a trip to Keenland Race track for a quick bite. At first it was a little difficult to find as it appears to be a private club at the top of the drive. We were then instructed it was downstairs, hence the name the Cellar. Nice comfortable atmosphere, plenty of tvs, exactly what you'd want in... More

Interested in bad food and terrible service. That's what the CELLAR offers. Plus, you can count on it's management to back it up. I had been to this so called restaurant maybe a year ago. I honestly did not remember how bad the food and service was. On a recent, nice summer evening, a few friends invited me out to... More

Extensive menu with a lot of selection of bar type food. Some good... some average... Seems there should be something there for everyone.

My husband and I ate here with two friends, and we all ordered the Cellar hamburger. I ordered it medium rare, but it was pretty medium. The fries came with it, and they were just ok - not too warm, and could have been cooked a little longer. On the plus side, the number and quality of beers on the... More

A group of friends regularly meet there prior to going to the local Philharmonic. Completely separated and good food.

CBR fries are delicious. They are qualified for the best economical meal in the world. Everyone was attentive and the food was great.

What a nice little hidden gem! We went during a UK football game, expecting to have to wait for a table. We had 14 people and were seated within 5 minutes. There were TVs everywhere. The noise level was pretty high because of the game, but we could still talk to each other. The menu is quite extensive for a... More

The Cellar offers great service, lots of TV's and seating, inside and out. The food is above average and not a pretty good value. The place is very popular and if you want a seat while you watch a UK basketball game, you better come early. They also offer good local entertainment.

Had dinner at The Cellar Bar & Grille on a Tues evening. Not very busy but it is a nice restaurant. Saw a lot of groups and larger parties. We (party of 2) had the chicken bacon ranch fries. I highly recommend! It is fries, queso, cheese and bacon. The queso has just a little kick and the portion was... More
