Stopped in for lunch while passing through Versailles on the way to Woodford Reserve. The food was great and the atmosphere perfect. If you're in the area, don't pass it up.

Enjoyed an appetizing meal with excellent service. We had a minimal wait for a table, but the food was worth the wait. The only real issue was parking near the restaurant. It is a downtown location, and we had to walk a couple of blocks.

We had chicken salad melt and the daily special (grilled chicken, pecans, cranberries, bleu cheese, strawberries, cucumbers, romaine salad with apple/raspberry vinegarette). Both were fabulous!

Used Yelp for review...they were right on..the chicken salad plate was most excellent. The potato soup was bland, but we are from south Louisiana. Definitely recommend

We had a delightful lunch here between distillery tours. I had a blackened chicken salad which was just perfect, very tasty. My only regret is that we didn't save room for bread pudding with bourbon sauce, because I'm sure it would have been heavenly. Service...More
