The girls working complimented me twice so loved that from the start. The food was very yummy, and the drinks were even better!! Great fast service and I was feeling great off 2 drinks so 10/10 recommend.

Great find in Woodford county on our way to Woodford distillery. Went at lunch, middle of week and we were the only ones there besides another couple. Service was great and food was super tasty! And the portions were large! Drinks were not too shabby as well. We enjoyed this quaint lunch spot at the golf course. Thank you!

Food was good. Ambiance was lacking. Room was very cold temperature wise and visually. Staff kept the messy storage closet open and kept going in and out while we were the only ones in the dining room.

The food was good but not anything to rave about. The dining area was pretty empty and freezing (my toes actually were blue by the end of our meal). Service was prompt and very friendly.

This is a low key restaurant for golfers off the course and their families. Some good entrees. -- the scallops were tasty altho the grits were gummy. Liquor service was awful -- apparently the bartender has never made a martini. Plenty of shrimp in the scampi. Not a special restaurant for Mother's Day.

Server was sweet and attentive. Kept our glasses full. Blackberry cobbler was cold and even after going back to the kitchen still barely warm.
Tater bombs were good.
Very very noisy!!
Large groups whooping it up.
Probably won’t go back.

Ordered a meal that was clearly labeled GF or gluten free only to realize the gravy they used was made with wheat. Wife is highly allergic to gluten. Our waiter was great about the experience! He walked over to let the owner know what happened. I heard the owner say, "it's not a big deal.". The owner NEVER came to apologize even after knowing what happened. The manager did apologize and took the price of the meal off, however my issue was with the owner whom knew of the situation and still never apologized or talked to us.

Responded on February 20, 2021

I apologize for any misunderstanding. When it was brought to my attention I was surprised that the meal ordered was not gluten-free. When I questioned him about the details he said the demi-glace that was served on the side was not gluten-free. He assured me he had it under control and I am sorry I did not personally get a chance to address the situation with you. Our menu has been updated to reflect what items can be ordered as gluten-free from those that definitely are gluten free.

I highly recommend the restaurant at Woodford Club. The food was served promptly,was delicious , and satisfying. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The only suggestion I have would be to offer a 4oz.portion (for less price) on your salmon and steak filets as that is all a lot of people want to consume.

It was not what I expected for a country club. Dinner was in the bar. Seemed a lot more club house than country club.

Ambiance was more high school cafeteria dressed up for a social rather than Vday special occasion dining. We had to ask for normal service items like ketch up and a refill rather than being tended to in a timely manner and checked on by our waitress. Creme brûlée was below par with overly torched top, lemon meringue pie taste decent but presentation/ plating looked like someone just tossed it on a plate to rush it to the table. I’ve never minded spending top dollar on a good meal but tonight I left felling robbed lol.... I’m still apologizing to my wife for a lackluster vday diner.

Excellent service. We had to send our entree back, due to it was served cold. Great taste, but was disappointed that the meal had to be "mircowaved". Excellent bourbon selections.

You can tell they were really trying to go all out for Valentines. It did take quite a while to get service, but I think the staff was just overwhelmed with the number of people in for the night. The food was not great, but not bad. My husbands lobster ravioli was quite good. My salad just had way too much dressing to enjoy. I should have asked for dressing on the side so that is my fault. It was nice to try some place new and support a different establishment. Would recommend not for foodies, but for more low key type of meal.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Normally we do serve dressings on the side, but opted to change things up on that night. This was our first Valentine's dinner since we opened last year and look forward to building on it for further special events.

My wife and I are from NC and were in town for a weekend getaway. Being Valentines weekend and not having any reservations I found this unassuming gem within a few miles drive. I wasn’t sure what to think about having dinner at a golf course restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised to find the experience quite enjoyable. The food was really tasty and everyone from host staff, our waitress, to the owner was very friendly. If we happen to pass through again on that side of town we are sure to visit again.
