The restaurant will be closed for standard dinner service through the end of 2016. Please contact the restaurant through the phone number or email in our general information section for details on hosting a private event.
The ambience, food, dinner selection and service were outstanding. Limited menu but that's the sign of potentially great food. Not inexpensive but worth every cent.
Our server offered informed advice concerning the dinner selection, appropriate wine and bourbon tasting. I counted at least 120 different bourbons!
Need dinner reservations.

My husband likes plain cake donuts. The cake donuts here have a frosting or a glaze on them. To get without, he was told to pre-order. I wanted bread but unfortunately the gentleman who makes the bread has an arm injury which prevented him from making bread. He also makes the donuts, I believe.

For a memorable, and delectable meal and experience, please join us.
Finished our Bourbon Trail day with dinner here. Had reservations and it was busy. Our server, Sara was helpful and friendly. It was interesting to here a bit of the story of this unusual location. The bar has a good selection of bourbons and we tried a couple, glad we could walk to our lodging. The Blueberry Salmon, 11 cheese potatoes, 6oz.filet with mushrooms and brussel sprouts were all great. I would come here often if I lived in this area.

It is like a step back in time and is like a pharmacy should be. A place you feel like you've been as a kid. Love the charm and the luncheon counter.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert! Full bar w/ over 140 Bourbons & 50+ beer! KY PROUD!! Bar open late with Live Music!! Thursday-Saturday. Patio dining! Family Owned.Family Operated Thanks for dining with us!
Good family restaurant, good bar area with friendly staff. Big, open dining area, but we opted for cozy bar area with tavern-quality atmosphere. Had bourbon chicken sandwich and pimento/fried green tomato/bacon (BLT)...both very good...also served great Bloody Mary's...not before 1:00pm, however! had to want 7-8 minutes to be legal. Staff was comical, and helpful. Note that Sundays in Bardstown are very quiet - not many shops open in March.

We went there for ice cream and it was so good, I haven't eatten at a Baskin-Robbins in a while so they have new flavors. People there were very friendly.

Let me start by saying we have always made it a point to eat at Kurtz Restaurant whenever we are in Bardstown and have enjoyed it. This evening however was extremely disappointing. Not only was my chicken inedible ( very dry with the skin tasting like the oil it was fried in) but Debbie Fischer was exceedingly rude. When I asked if a partial adjustment of my $24.00 entree was possible, she informed me that the fried chicken was their best seller and known worldwide. Then insinuated that I, the customer, was somehow the problem! Ridiculous! I will never eat at Kurtz Restaurant and will not recommend others do so based on principle alone. — Susan Kurtz

Ten couple who went for a friends and family gathering event. The train ride was nice as Lief refurbished train cars were reminiscent of earlier times. The same way was pleasant on the run out for the first hour and 15 minutes what the run back was along the same track and the same scenery, so redundant. The food portions were large. The salad was spring greens but a little wilted and the waitress had to find blue cheese dressing has not normally served which was surprising.. they salmon was very tasty and tender. The prime rib was a little over cooked when ordering medium rare and a replacement was the same as well as another member of the party who also ordered medium rare. The Fortune was Grey Lodge, about 18 Oz, but somewhat Bland and we've had better. The desserts were good. The appetizer surprisingly included a portion of country ham which I like but some members of our party didn't care for salty ham and gave me theirs, a treat for me. Tips are expected to be based on the full price including the train ride totaling $92. I guess they want you to think that the conductor's share in the tip but nothing is mentioned if that's the case. So I had to figure the value of the dinner portion at about $40 in order to figure the tip as I wasn't tipping on the train fare portion of the total price. They need to be more clear on that point. This was her first trip and now we can scratch it off at Bucket List as one time is enough. One or two others not in that party have been before so I guess that's a matter of opinion

Just pulled in to Bardstown from our Kentucky Bourbon Trail stops of Willet, Makers Mark and Heaven Hill distilleries. Pat's was recommended by the receptionist at Heaven Hill and it fit the bill for lunch. Good food, good service and friendly people. Regular lunch fair on the main drag in Bardstown. Try it!

Historic Restaurant, Bar and Inn continuously in operation since 1779. Located in the heart of Bourbon Country. Proudly serving locally inspired food and drink. Try the best top shelf bourbons with our bourbon sampler. Dine in unique surroundings where the famous and infamous visited during their historic setting ventures.
This circa 1779 B&B / restaurant provided good food at OK prices in a rustic casual bar atmosphere in addition to having had many historic visitors including Lincoln, Daniel Boone, and Jesse James who apparently left bullet holes in upstairs’ walls. The wait staff was friendly and got our food out while it was piping hot. The entrée choices included marinated ribeye ($28); ribs; pot roast; fried chicken or fish; and shrimp and grits. Most entrée costs ranged from $15 to $19.
* The boneless fried chicken breasts with two sides for $17 and French fries had a great crunchy exterior; however, one of the two large breasts was over cooked.
* The shrimp and cheese grits entrée for $19 was extremely good.
