The Bank, is not what you would think it to be, it's actually a resturant, you cannot make a deposit here unless it's to buy food and drink, ha ha. I was actually kind of puzzled when I asked a local where would be a great place to have fun and he said "The Bank." But after he explained it... More

They have the best honey bbq boneless wings. However, our waitress was not very good and she failed to bring back my friends credit card, we had already left the restaurant and had to go back and get it.

For an afternoon or evening meal, I recommend their meatloaf. Like the way they've taken an old bank building and made such a nice restaurant with great food.

We thought the experience of dining in a converted bank would have been a great experience but turned out to be just so-so. The service was very slow both on the night we just had drinks and the night we met friends for dinner being a group of 10. The food was ok. The cheese stuffed burger was probably the... More

Stooped by for a few drinks and appetizers, great selection of craft beers including Kentucky Ale Bourbon Barrel, and very good food, wings, and the Ultimate Grilled Cheese is delicious. This is a great place to stop with a nice atmosphere.

We always visit here when in PIkeville. Before 10 PM or so, it's a great place to get a meal, even with a family. After 10, the music comes on and it's a great place for drinks and socializing. My favorite appetizer is their Fried Green Tomatoes. Yum! Everything I've tried has been good and the service is good, as... More

Went with several friends for a drink during happy hour and it was great. I didn't get beer, but my friend's tab was $2 for the beer she had! Serving staff was very friendly and they had good music. Parking nearby makes it easy to get to. I will be making that a regular stop during the week! :)

When in Pikeville I usually meet friends here. The food is good with a relaxed atmosphere, it can be pretty busy on a Friday or Saturday night especially if there is an event in town. The servers are nice and friendly. Not a bad choice.

They handled our large party of 11 with ease. Their fare was typical bar food but good. The fish tacos were a hit with two of our group. Solid performer close to downtown hotels.
