This is a very nice restaurant on the Kentucky River. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I did not have any drinks but they do have a bar. The staff was very good and pleasant. I would highly recommend this place.

After exploring Fort Boonesborough along the Kentucky River we made a point to drive to the opposite bank mainly to recreate in my mind the Shawnees attacking the fort about 240 years ago. They swooped down from a high ridge firing arrows into a 48'x 48' walled enclosure on the river. With that story in mind we discovered the road... More

Huge deck over a beautiful deck, nice wait staff, good food and the drive out is gorgeous. What more can you ask for? I've been here multiple times over the years and I've never had a bad experience. Yes it is a little dated but in that seaside shanty sort of way that feels comfortable. Hall's is famous for it's... More

I was very impressed with the menu this week as compared to the last time I visited. More options and different price points. They even have crab cakes now!

Working in the area and looking for a nice lunch. This place was top notch. We were seated right away and food was served hot and very quickly. Our waitress Tonya was outstanding she recommended a couple things on the lunch menu and the Shrimp Po'boy and the Hellbender were both fantastic. We will definitely be eating here again.

Full menu with excellent service and local favorites. Try the Hot Brown sandwich. If seasonable, dine on the patio outside.

Went with two friends and sat on the deck. It was a great view! Ordered the beer cheese burger and fries. It came with a thick slather of warm beer cheese that I used half of to dip my fries. That was amazing. The burger comes with a fried banana pepper, but don't be fooled, it's not the size of... More
