I spent six years in Germany as the son of a career military man. I finished my tour at Limestone Branch Distillery and did a search for a German Restaurant. Kresos popped up. Though they do serve great German food, they are heralded as a European Restaurant with various cultural dishes. I ordered a Wiener schnitzel which, upon my first... More

Mary was wonderful as both owner and server! We had six people and had a very good meal. There was a huge group of very loud young adults in the back of the restaurant and except for them the night was great.

Kreso's is a very unassuming little dinner spot located in downtown Bardstown, with a very cozy but more upscale feel. My husband and I visited during a night away and were impressed by the friendliness of the wait staff - along with the delicious food we enjoyed! There is a range of European menu options. I chose the Bosnian salad... More

I wasn't expecting to find such delicious schnitzel in the corner of Kentucky, but Kreso's delivered. The Jaeger Schnitzel was delicious. I could hear the cook pounding the pork cutlet when I went to the bathroom. The schnitzel came smothered in a delicious sauce, topped with a layer of thin, proscutto-like ham, and cheese. I also got a side of... More

Highly recommended, Excellent food and a diverse menu. Service staff were excellent and well trained. This restaurant has the largest selection of spirits I have ever seen. A little bit pricey, but worth it.

I had the Bosnian salad and my wife had the grilled chicken sandwich for lunch. They were great. Service was prompt and friendly. We will return.

Very busy evening, & service was somewhat slow. We found out later that one server had taken the evening off. Food was OK, but if I return to Bardstown, I probably would not return. Took close to an hour (50 - 55 minutes) to get our food & it even took about 40 minutes to get my appetizer, shrimp cocktail.

Walking in and smelling water damage instead of food is never a good sign, and it certainly doesn't help the appetite. The caprese salad was bland tomatoes and mozzarella, served with sliced romaine - and zero basil. Appetizer crab cakes couldn't stay together enough to even get them on fork, yet had ok flavor. The entree, though, shouldn't have been... More

Owner waited on us. Could not get order straight. Ordered unsweetened iced tea which took 20 min to receive and was brought sweet tea. Only 2 other tables were seated. Meat and cheese plate was a huge waste of money. For $ 10 two slices of cheese ie. Think Kraft singles. cut thin and diagonal for 4 tiny pieces. 2... More

Decor and atmosphere is excellent. Food was great as was the service. My friends and I enjoyed an excellent meal with enough room for laughter and on a budget that won't break the bank. Would definitely recommend.

Thank Rebecca M
