They are fantastic. I love to come there around Derby Day, especially, to get their Ky Burgoo and Tousey Pie. (Derby Pie) what a treat! Need to try Breakfast Buffet on Sundays.

Questions like this should go directly to the restaurant. Trip Advisor reviewers would not know the current details. Bit whatever they offer will be good.
Do you or can you serve a non-alcoholic beer?
