The service and quality of the food is outstanding. I cannot believe there is a finer dining experience between Louisville and Lexington. Bourbon selection is fabulous. When the on site hotel is completed why would you stay anywhere else. Try it-you will love it.

Not worth it! We ordered salads, entrees and a cocktail. The waitress brought my salmon and my husband's side dishes. We waited thinking his ribs and the salads would be coming soon. No. She had forgotten the order. Had to remind her to get my drink that I could clearly see had been sitting at the bar for 10min. Just not the fabulous experience.

Restaurant ambiance was great. Loved the fireplace in the center, bar area, nice waiting area, outside fire pits, etc. We were greeted promptly and the hostess was very courteous. Service went down hill from there. When we weren't ready to order seconds after being seated, the server seemed annoyed with us. One item from the food order was missed and meals were brought out at different times. And the food was just so-so. Ribs and Salmon were good. Fried Chicken was not.

I would probably try again given other reviews and would provide a qualified recommendation.

A little pricey due to the À la cart side dishes. In my opinion I think one should offer at least one side with meal. All in all a great place!

Food and beverage/ per dollar value was ridiculous. My wife totally enjoyed the brussell sprouts, but her hamburger was actually half cooked, but only on one side. Enormous amounts of French Fries, to the point of wasting. My Shrimp and Cheese Grits, while tasty, was far from the best I've ever had. The lunch experience, while not a complete washout, was not, for the money, a big letdown.

We decided to eat lunch here while in the Bardstown area. This place did not disappoint. We shared the tuna tartar tacos for an appetizer. These were beyond delicious! Perfect way to start a meal. They weren’t too heavy nor spicy (not a huge spicy fan and wasn’t sure if these would be-trust me, they were not spicy). We then split a hamburger with the cheddar grits for the main entree. Two words: cheddar grits-OMG! These were so good I wanted to lick the dish it was in. The hamburger was cooked perfectly and the bun was amazing! (I think they make their own buns in house). To finish we chose a boozy milkshake-the banana on...and once again, OMG! Plenty for 2 people and absolutely delicious. A huge bonus of eating here, you could try their 3 bourbons in their tasting room free. Their bourbon was delicious as well. If you’re near the Bardstown area, this area should be an absolute must eat! You will definitely not regret it!

So where do you take the boss when he flies into Kentucky for the first time? Bottle & Bond, that’s where! We arrived a little early for our 11:30 reservation giving us some time to look around. What a huge building! We sat at the bar and chatted with a delightful bartender that is also working to become a dentist. I thought a new a few things about bourbon, being a Kentucky boy, but managed to learn even more as we talked. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and a joy to be around. Because of her, we decided to move to a bar table for our lunch and she continued serving us.

We all ordered the brisket sandwich which was amazing, but started with the grilled cheese and Shrimp and Grits appetizers. All I can say is both of these made me want to slap my momma because they were so good! We finished things off with a beautiful bourbon bread pudding as we indulged in a few select bourbons.

I know for a fact my Philly boss was impressed and satisfied with the volume and quality of food and drink. I can’t wait to take my wife and other family back again. Even from Shelbyville, it’s well worth the drive!I

Count me in a a definite returning customer!

The decor was interesting large see through fireplace was a nice touch. The music choice and volume was a bit over the top somewhere between a hipster bar and nightclub. The food was excellent, although menu choice was limited this is the type of place that’s perfected a small menu and it shows in the quality and presentation. We had the Brussel sprouts, a NY strip which was cooked to perfection medium rare through the entire steak not just in the center. The brisket was excellent better than any other restaurant in the state. Prices were a bit high but, the quality of the locally grown ingredients shows. This is by no means a cheap dinner date but for a special occasion we will definitely be back. The barrel aged old fashion was hands down the best I’ve had it’s worth a visit simply for them, I’m sort of a snob when it comes to my drinks but this one was out of this world. Presentation was simple it wasn’t muttled with nonsense or extra fruit, the bar manager actually came out to discuss them with us after sending out compliments with our server. The service was excellent even though it was a busy Saturday night. This place has found a niche for us the spirits list is nearly a book, they have a few specialty drinks and they’ve definitely taken time to perfect them. We will definitely be back!

We ate dinner at this restaurant as recommended on google and by a local distillery. I made a reservation 4 days prior to our planned date. We heard the place was fun to hang out, so we arrived an hour before our reservation. We sat outside the bar next to a big fireplace and had some great cocktails. The cocktail list was very impressive and amazing bourbon list, I loved the house old fashioned. A few cocktails included high end bourbon ended up at the $28 price point, a little much for my taste. The building is BEAUTIFUL and you can tell the company has put time and $ into it. Big beautiful glass walls at the front and a large, live moss wall at the back. The sharable plates were delicious and affordable. We ordered the brussel sprouts, gnocci and shrimp and grits - all were outstanding - the gnocci brown butter sauce was out of this world. We ordered house salads and finished with boozy milkshakes - outstanding and delicious - definitely worth the calories. I highly recommend this restaurant for their great food and really outstanding service.

I think the restaurant itself is great I would definitely go back, my friends ans I all enjoyed the food I just wish there was another side with the foods for the price, even my friend wasn't happy with the small amount of broccoli she received with her salmon, the cornbread was absolutely to die for though. I would probably go back.

It was an unexpected and pleasant surprise to learn that the meal came with a complimentary bourbon tasting. The restaurant itself was very nice and open, but also casual-feeling enough that you could go in jeans and not feel out of place. The bar area was also very nice and open. The menu is limited, especially on vegetarian options, but the food was excellent. Highly recommend.
