Service was phenomenal, the value was amazing and the crescent rolls with special butter were the amazing star of the night! We will definitely be back to this place when we visit Kentucky again!

I had lunch here today. The 1/2 rack ribs and chicken tenders meal was great with plenty of both. The side salad came with a delicious glacier (sweet) glazed croissant, that was so good I had to have a second one. You need to really...More
