    We didn't realize that there was a time change and were late to our lunch appointment. I called to let them know and they were very accommodating. We sat down right away and ordered and they had our food out so quickly that we had no problem making our next appointment which was for their tour (which was equally amazing).

    Our drinks were great and our waitress was very nice and efficient. Our appetizers were delicious but our meals were all just ok. The rolls were not very fresh on the sandwiches and the steak frites was on the small side for the price. Fun afternoon tho

    We waited 20 minutes for our drinks. Our food was served cold, lukewarm at best. Despite the high prices and attempt to appear to be a chichi restaurant, we were asked to keep our dirty utensils between courses. The table wasn't cleared of used dishes. The hot brown was dry. The steak frites was not a true steak frites, which is a ribeye with fries, not what was served. The Mississippi Mud pie was grainy, dry and flavorless and there was nothing muddy about it. And the French press coffee was not hot. We were completely underwhelmed. Trying to be upscale and fashionable but is really just expensive and disappointing.

    This was our second experience at Bardstown Bourbon Co. Kitchen. Our first visit several months ago was flawless. This visit also exceptional with just a couple of weak spots. Service like our first visit was fantastic, and really adds to the overall experience. We had the beet salad, and would suggest a bit more acid in the dressing, and that the kale be chopped finer, otherwise a very good salad, all ingredients very fresh. The smoked salmon hash was tasty and well prepared, the fried mortadella and brie sandwich was an out of the park decadent version of the Southern staple. The deserts were the weak points, Mississippi Mud Cake was a bit dry and tasteless, likewise with buttermilk pie. Last visit we had the cheesecake with bourbon caramel sauce, that probably the best cheesecake I've ever had. Also last visit our steak frites and hamburger were perfect. The highlight on this visit were the cocktails, the Old Fashioned was absolutely perfect. This is one of our favorite places, we have drive about 90 minutes, but well worth it.

    This is a must stop when in bardstown even if you’re not a bourbon drinker. Great place to have a nice lunch and beverage of choice. There is nothing bad on the menu. I recommend the brussel sprouts app and the BBLT. Both a unique and delicious take on these foods. The brisket and burger are huge but absolutely worth it. I’ve been told the fried chicken sandwich is the best but I’ve not tried it…yet!

    The area is nice and open. We had the first reservation of the day so we were seated and greeted immediately. As expected their bourbon menu is extensive but we decided on a Manhattan with Bardstown Bourbon. It arrived quickly and was delicious! For lunch we ordered the mac and cheese and the blt. We also ordered the Humingbird cupcake for dessert. Everything was delicious and we would absolutely go back again.

    Bardstown Bourbon Company's kitchen and bar is a beautifully appointed. It reminded me of a mid century modern supper club with lush green velvet dining chairs, leather banquettes and chesterfield sofas. A+ on the decor. The food did not disappoint either. Portions were generous and the menu had a modern Southern flair with items such as pinto beans and cornbread (less crumbly and texturally more like a hush puppy), BBLT (the extra B bring Benedictine which is a dreamy sandwich spread) and more. The price for lunch was very reasonable with 2 diners w/o cocktails (which looked divine) eating for around $32.

    My husband and I live in the area, and wanted to visit the distilleries, so we chose here for a late lunch. Overall, it was a decent experience. We started out with the Kentucky poutine, which is delicious!! Then, I ordered the fried chicken and my husband got steak frites. Both were very good. However, something seemed odd about my mashed potatoes. They weren't fresh tasting, but they didn't taste instant either. Just off. We shared the Mississippi (?)Chocolate cake. It was good as well. What I did not enjoy, was the atmosphere. It was a little noisy, and I just didn't like that it didn't feel very private at all. The tables were rather close together, and it had an open concept space, which just made it feel sort of like an upscale cafeteria. Also, our bill was $72 with a 20% tip, and we only had water to drink. Seemed a little pricy for what we got. Our server Will was very friendly and made nice suggestions. I would probably go back, but it wasn't something I would consider frequenting regularly.

It was a breeze to make reservations and they can get you in normally pretty quick unlike most distillery attractions that hook up months in advance! Highly recommend (:

    We have past Bardstown Bourbon Company many times and finally made reservations to go for lunch. We enjoyed a specialty drink before eating. The steak frites were wonderful. The flank steak was thick, moist, and delicious. Also tried the Hot Brown, the moray sauce was delicate, the turkey moist and could slide a fork through, with sweet treasures of bacon. We look forward to going again.
