AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): I enjoy the historical ambience of this old 18th century stagecoach tavern. The remnants of murals on the walls upstairs have a ghostly aura at night.
Historic. This handsome stone building is a tavern that dates to circa 1779. Enjoy Kentucky dishes, including hot brown, burgoo and bourbon bread pudding. Dining rooms have stone walls and exposed beams. Visitors have included Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay, Abraham Lincoln and Daniel Boone. Exiled French King Louis Philippe supposedly drew some of the murals upstairs. Jesse James is alleged to have used one of these murals for target practice. Indoor pistol practice is no longer tolerated by management. Look out for ghosts at night! This historic stagecoach tavern is reportedly haunted. The only spirits, however, that were witnessed in a recent visit were the multitude of bourbons behind the bar.
