After finishing up with a volleyball tournament took my daughter here for the first time. I cannot bring myself to order anything but the amazing Kentucky Hot Brown - love, love this sandwich!

No change to the menu. Pies are still great as well. As far as atmosphere I would visit the one down on Old Harrodsburgs Road. There are some nice trees to find shade in if you happen to take the short stroll to the banks... More
