For me, it was a cool feeling to eat in a secluded location, in a hollow along the Little Howard Creek (at least that's what Google said it was), a tributary of the beautiful Kentucky River. It's located not far from Ft. Boonesborough State Park....More

First time there at Hall's on the River restaurant. I loved the outdoor scenery. The band was awesome. The food was delicious and nice portions. I really enjoyed myself, I danced, laughed, and ate.

Stopped as I was heading through the area. Sat on the deck creekside. Enjoyed visiting with a local patron who told us the history of the area, the restaurant and himself. Famous for the beer cheese. Not a fan but the catfish was excellent. Check...More
