We had dinner at Wilshire's and it was great. The owner made sure everything was done right. I had the Hot Brown and it was wonderful. The turkey was "real" thick sliced turkey with a good flavor and the sauce finished it off perfectly. The house has a lot of history and we enjoy going to local places versus the... More

Wilshire's is a dependable great meal every time we go. The catfish is the best I've ever eaten and the steaks are outstanding. Great appetizers and the bar drinks are always well prepared. Highly recommend if your in the Georgetown area

Service was excellent. Ordered small sandwich "trio". Fish & chicken were very good but burger was well over done. Fries were very good.

We have dined here twice. We really wanted this place to be great. It is in a beautiful old house; but it seems the “old house” part was set up for large parties and we were sat in the “sports bar” both times. The food is mixed. I truly believe my green beans came right out of a can. I... More

Amazing food. A wonderful experience in house you don't normally get to get to experience 5 star food in. This place catered to our needs and the owner gave us a ride home when no taxis were available. Our recommendation is a 5*!!!

It's a really nice, calm restaurant but I thought the service was a bit low quality. They take FOREVER to get your food and it's cold by then. One of my friends even got sick after eating their buffalo wings. They waitress was very nice but took ages giving us our change back so we left. I ordered a salad... More

We looked at the amazing photo and assumed that this was more of a "Country Inn" type restaurant... nope. 3/4 of it IS sports bar. 2 very small rooms are the "intimate dining areas'. The food was generally good and the service friendly. We didn't have problems with the service as we were there early in the evening before the... More

I would like to apologize for the average experience that you recently had at Wilshire's. Its with regret that staff didn't inform you of the upstairs portion of our restaurant for which there are two more dining rooms away from the bar area. I only hope you will visit us again to experience "all" that Wilshire's has to offer. Please... More

We had a Wedding Rehearsal dinner for 22 people about two weeks ago. Don Wilshire was very helpful in helping us plan accordingly and everything went very well. The food was reasonably priced, atmosphere was pleasant and service was very good. We had a lot of compliments and would definitely do it again.

Wilshire's combines quality food with an historic atmosphere. Located in the historic home of Gen. John Payne, the original structure was constructed in 1790. The 11 room house provides ample space for small groups, weddings, business luncheons and holiday gatherings. The menu offers a diverse selection of comfort foods, soups, salads, steaks and seafood. The bar has a very large selection of Kentucky's finest bourbons and local brews. Wilshire's is very family friendly and features ample parking.
