Fun retro setting. Great staff. Delicious fried catfish and locally grown sides. Didn't need to add tartar sauce to the fish nor butter to the sweet tater. Had to wait a while for the food after being seated, but worth it.

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

The Zandale location has a private room and a covered patio. Either would accommodate your party. Call and speak to a manager for reservations.
