From our research into area restaurants, we wanted to have dinner here, but it didn't work out, so on our final day, we stopped for a quick "lunch" - hard to really evaluate a restaurant just based on lunch/dessert - my wife had soup-and half sandwich ("ok") and I opted for their Chess Pie (good, but didn't "knock my socks...

My husband and I ate here on our Bourbon Trail getaway. It is located in an old house that was converted into a restaurant. We were seated close to the kitchen (I don't know why, since the restaurant wasn't crowded at all). Our waitress - Sharon I believe - was really nice. I had the fried chicken and my husband... More

My husband and I ate a late lunch there. The location is good, clean and good atmosphere. I only wanted a light meal and they would not deviate from their printed menu. Server was very apologetic, but nonetheless I was a little disappointed.

I live in Bardstown and I typically only eat here when I have a client who wants to eat here. I've only eaten lunch here so maybe the dinner menus is more impressive. I will get some sort of sandwich to eat which isn't bad. The service is great and they are very attentive. The best thing about this place... More

Good food, good atmosphere conducive to conversation and chocolate pie tasted so much like Mama's I asked to be adopted.

We were lucky enough tha an Easter Sunday Brunch Reservation cancelled and we were graciously taken care of even though we were a smaller party. The food and service was scrumptious!

This restaurant was recommended by several sources and we were very pleased we chose to have dinner there. We were seated quickly and our server was very pleasant. The fried chicken was wonderful! Just like my grandmother made it. Everything was delicious, including the coconut cream pie!

Kurtz’s, a family restaurant in the very historic city of Bardstown, Kentucky, sits across from Federal Hill, the plantation house known as My Old Kentucky Home and now a state park. If you’re in town for antiquing, crafting, Bourbon Trailing, golfing, etc., and want a delicious lunch, you really can’t go wrong at Kurtz’s. During a recent stop we were... More
