The four of us were looking forward to the advertised barbecued pork after touring the region. On entering the door we were assaulted by the heavy and frankly nauseating odor of cigarette smoke such that it was stomach turning and would have certainly ruined any...More

I came here with my fiancée after visiting Mammoth Cave. The service was excellent, and the pulled pork sandwich was delicious. If I was ever in the area again I would definitely go back and would recommend it for a quick bite to eat.

Had breakfast after saying at Mammoth Cave Hotel and not pleased with Travertine. Heard from others that this was a good local place "just down the road". First the food was great. Eggs with biscuits and gravy were excellent. Others had French toast that was...More

Pulled pork sandwich was so-so. Sauce was too sweet. Onion rings were frozen, not fresh. Salad was quite good. Very friendly service was quick. However the cigarette smoke was gagging and deeply embedded in everything. We should have taken out.
