Fabulous food and staff that goes far beyond the norm! Every group tour in Louisville should visit Bristol. The All Things Kentucky buffet (for groups over 25 in attendance) comes back with high evaluations. Something for everyone.

Our Road Scholars group had our final dinner here. The service was fast and efficient. The three entrees all seemed to be well received. I particularly liked my pork in dijon sauce and my wife enjoyed her portobello mushroom.
