Walked over here from our hotel for dinner. Had the hot browns (hard to find outside KY) and the buttermilk chicken. They were both good, not outstanding but certainly solid dishes. There's an attached full bar yet the restaurant is still kid-friendly.

Cheese on grilled cheese sandwich was cheap, low quality and didn't taste very nice. All food tasted cheap and mass produced. Chips were burned and tasteless. Would not return. Service was good and food arrived quickly.

Yes, they did since I had salad. But you can call them to check and I think they might have their menu on line.
