    Lamb ravioli...very good! Tasha did a good job. Nothing "extra" in any way, but very good overall. Well done...would enjoy it again!

    We chose Bardstown Bourbon Company Kitchen and Bar to celebrate our daughter’s graduation. Such a cool place to eat and celebrate as a family! We sat outside under the pergola with some yummy drinks while waiting for our table. The server did a great job handling our party of 13 & the modern ambience was so fun. Our drinks were excellent, but we were sad to find out that the Fusion Bourbon in our drinks was no longer for sale. Some of our party’s menu choices were not available, but we didn’t find out until we were putting in our order, which is always disappointing; but not our server’s fault. We greatly enjoyed the country ham board, the tuna tacos with delicious fries, the salmon entree and also the picanha steak, but the 2 who ordered the open face meatloaf sandwich were disappointed. Also one of the fried chicken sandwiches was so overdone that it couldn’t be bitten into, so just watch out for that. The staff brought a nice dessert for our graduate, which was a special touch. Overall, we will go again, but will order a couple of different things. We’ll also be happy once their Fusion Bourbon is available again, which we were told will be 2 years (~2026?)

    Server was terrible and didn’t listen. All dishes that had mods came out incorrect. We had to constantly flag her or different servers down for refills, etc. very disappointing as we dine there nearly every time we have a group visiting distilleries.

    The food was good. My girlfriend and the roasted Brussel sprouts. The cubed pork belly 'bacon' really set them apart! I had their version of a meat loaf sandwich. Presentation was not what I expected, but the taste was excellent! The atmosphere, to me, was very sterile and industrial. But then I am older and this just doesn't appeal to me. It was still a nice experience. Would go again for the food.

    Had lunch following a tour. I ended up joining a couple I had met on the tour and the staff did a wonderful job accommodating this including holding my food to time with theirs. The food was good however the chicken sandwich though good was not quite to the level I would expect yo match the rest of the experience. The old fashioned however rocked!!

    The restaurant is BEAUTIFUL and had a great vibe. We had a wonderful experience on the tour for my son’s 21st birthday. The drinks were great! The food is where I was highly disappointed. This is my 3rd time here and worst experience yet, on the food. One of my son’s ordered the filet. Ordered medium. It came out burnt. By the time the second one came out, he was barely hungry anymore because he had nibbled on everyone else’s food. My salmon was okay. The server did not ask how I wanted it cooked. It was a tad too done but good. It came out on a bed of oversized croutons. There were maybe 2 grape tomatoes mixed into the croutons and one, 1/2 inch piece of the end of an asparagus spear. No veggies! My mom got the sirloin- it was over cooked and cold, my son’s girlfriend got the meatloaf sandwich and it was super dry. She didn’t eat. My husband LOVED his burger!!! The French fries that my husband and son both got with their sandwiches were cold and so was my son’s chicken sandwich. I didn’t complain to the manager but I was highly disappointed and I feel like they should’ve discounted the filet. I probably won’t go back to eat.

    We had our first visit to celebrate our daughter’s graduation with a party of 10, plus a two year old and one old. Everyone was impressed with their meals and drinks were good! Our server, Kyanne, could not have done a better job with our party. Fast and friendly, it was evident she loved her job. We can’t wait to come back!

    Great hostess and server. Food was ok. Poutine for appetizer was cold in the center. Fried green tomatoes were a little heavily breaded for our taste. Had the ravioli and it also was a little cool but the pasta was done very well, al dente. My husband had the chicken sandwich which was very good. Beautiful place with great service and the food has great potential, just not served very warm.

    I love the vibe at Bardstown Distillery, the restaurant and bar are stunning as is the rest of the grounds. The bourbon was excellent. The food was not, the fried chicken sandwich was dry and hard to chew, and the fries were slightly warm and kinda soggy. This place has soo much going for it, hopefully management will see this and get the back of house up to the standards of the rest of the establishment.

    I would say the Chicken Caesar salad was a little wilt and room temp vs cold and crisp but still very refreshing and delicious. Loved my glass of Prosecco and sitting out on the patio on a warm day with a gently breeze. It was perfect to chat and look at the grounds. I’m happy they had other options since I’m not a heavy bourbon drinker.

    We ate here for lunch while touring the distillery. This is a beautiful facility overall, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The food was good, and the service was outstanding. The overall setting was great, with comfortable tables, a roaring fire on the chilly, rainy afternoon, and an overall nice setup. I would highly recommend it.

    We were visiting Bardstown Bourbon as part of The Bourbon Trail. Our distillery tour ended a little early so we were about ten minutes early for our reservation. The hostess told us we could not be seated early and would be called. One minute after the reservation time we were seated at a table that had been empty the entire time. The service was super slow. Took an hour and fifteen minutes for food to be served. Food was good and our waitress was very nice. The atmosphere feels a little like a cafeteria. There are better places in Bardstown.
