The hot beef sandwich is excellent with real roast beef not a formed product. This is the best seller here and there is a reason for it. Our server did an outstanding job with helpful suggestions and great service. Everything is home made and there is a good selection on the menu. Make sure you save room for the peach... More

We had an office function at the Back Home Restaurant. There were six in our party and the service was outstanding. The staff and décor were pleasing and the food was outstanding. I would recommend to all.

Service was good. Hot brown was lacking in flavor. Everyone enjoyed their food for the most part. Deserts were good .

This restaurant is in a old historic home. Well prepared comfort food at very reasonable process. Some of my favorites are the Hot Brown and the pulled pork. Oh wait, I also love the vegetable soup and the chicken salad! Been here many times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service!

The menu is cracker barrel style, but Back Home is a million times better. The food was wonderful. We ordered 5 meals and everyone loved everything they ordered. The hot turkey sandwich was the best of all. Highly recommend!

You'll enjoy this beautiful restaurant in an era house with friendly staff. The food is always homemade and fresh and service is top notch. Make sure to try the fried green tomatoes and Peach Cobbler. The setting is calming and can be enjoyed with a group of friends or on a nice date night.

The restaurant is in an beautiful old home, with a boutique upstairs and the food is served on the first floor. Our meal was excellent. My husband had the pulled pork with carrots and sweet potato casserole, he said it was wonderful. I had salmon patties, cranberry and nut salad with corn pudding. My meal was great as well. Our...

We were in town for a November soccer tournament and had a few hours between games. Place is quaint with a capital Q! The staff are very welcoming and the atmosphere is priceless. Menu is fairly large for a small place. Would recommend the location for families or couples! Will definitely be back

I stopped in Elizabethtown for lunch on my way to Lexington, KY. The Back Home Restaurant is a very quaint little restaurant in a nice small town in Kentucky. The food was good, not great but certainly did not disappoint and the price was quite reasonable. I got the shrimp and grits which I can definitely recommend.

Thank WGJ49
