    First time at the new restaurant in Bardstown. My date and I thoroughly enjoyed it… Limited menu with many things I didn’t know much about, but that’s what I like… Something different with unique flavors.

    Our table was ready upon check-in at the desk. Even though I requested first floor, we were seated upstairs, which worked out fine. Server was attentive and quick with suggestions and explanations of menu items. She answered our questions and made recommendations for the number of guests at the table. The drinks from the bar were made tasty and served quickly. Most of the food items were all new items for our tastes and needed clarification, but everything was good. Portions seemed a little small, but with a variety of appetizers and entrees, we were too full to consider dessert.

    I'll give Toogie's another try because there was so much that was right. The food, however, was not the star of the show. Management gave us a heads up that there would be a limited menu because the restaurant was just making the switch to being open more nights per week. Three of the 7 at our table really enjoyed their meal. The rest of us thought the seasoning on *everything* was superb, but execution fell short (horribly dried out chicken, and issues with other dishes). The service made it all work, and we were a fairly demanding and rowdy bunch.

    It's been nice to see chefs thoughtfully create menus here in Kentucky! This place is excellent. The cocktails are amusing plays on your typical bourbon drinks. I went with the Brook & Magnolia the rye played so nice with the sweet fig. A little too good... now any place that gives an Amuse bouche means here's some food to set up the rest. Smoked stuffed olives. Yup. Followed up with the Caesar wedge and broccoli soup. Those two complimented each other so well. The bites of salad with smoked roe really popped. For mains we got Parsnips and the Salmon. I requested the salmon medium and they nailed it. Crispy skin yet still soft and tender. And we will never eat Parsnips cooked better than here. Wow! Such a thoughtful menu along with quick attentive service. Doesn't get much better than this!

    Found Toogie's to be confusing. Upon entry both me and my companion had a sense of something less than a better farm to table restaurant. Burger and the wedges were good but requires a fork to eat. Hog Chop was served in a broth. Didn't appreciate the chef shouting out the dish to the wait staff. A bit strange when it interrupted a dinner conversation several times.

    This is a great little spot in Bardstown but the taste might be a little too refined for the palettes around here. Cocktails were good and they did give us free champagne for our anniversary! Decor is more upscale Farm to Table. My husband ordered the Bardstown Hog Chop and said that whoever they source their pork from needs to change because the cut of meat was terrible, very gristly and fatty and the parts closest to the bone were'nt even cooked all the way through he was worried he'd get sick if he ate it. I had the salmon which was fine but i felt like i needed a little more food. We ended up still hungry when we went home. So overall it's got good bones, just needs some tweaks to the menu and maybe their supply sources. Give some of the meat and potato folks a little more substance if you want locals to come back for more.

    We will definitely be going back. The menu is very unique. Drinks were great. They were short staffed (like everyone is today) but handled it great. They had to close the upstairs. Next time I hope we get to sit up there. It looked very quaint, fireplace and all. The bar was closed, since they were short staffed, but hope to go back and grab a drink first upstairs then dinner. We pass by this this restaurant in our travels almost every day. We could not wait to give it a try. It did not disappoint. Love they give an ode to previous restaurant with the family style beets (& name)! Great experience!!!

    DELICIOUS FOOD. 10/10 recommend. If you’re looking for a casual fine dining spot in Bardstown, Kentucky, this is it. I’ve never been one to comment on cost in reviews, but the restaurant is perfectly priced for the quality and style of the meal and drinks—definitely disregard the negative review stating otherwise. The menu is unique with farm-to-table vibes and has a cozy feel ideal for the upcoming season.

    The burger and fries that I had were very good. Also, the Bardstown Yacht Club drink was wonderful. My son had the fried chicken but with 3 mediocre pieces, his plate looked a little sad and lacking. He said it was good though.

    This place is a treat! Love the imaginative menu! Bar area is very nice and bartender friendly and attentive. Our food was great and we especially liked the blue brie squash salad and the chicken and spaetzle dumplings. The addition of the Trappist Beer Mustard makes the dish! The stuffed olives from the chef were outstanding!

    I’ve thought about not writing this review, thinking it’s better to just let it go. After talking to our dinner companies, it must be reviewed. The remolded restaurant is great, the staff is also great and that is where it stops. The menu is ridiculous,, after you see the menu and 3 of the 4 of us consider the burger as your top option, something is wrong. It needs to be said that all of the food was good, but not worth the price. This restaurant has also decided that drink prices are not in line with the actual cost of bourbons from the area. $12 for a shot of Evan Williams is way out of line. I believe this restaurant will be around to serve visitors, while locals, as myself, will wish that Bardstown would have gained a new restaurant that welcomes locals.
