If you go down one more exit to Cave City and take a left toward Galsgow you will come to a little restaurant called Bolton’s Landing. Probably a 20 minute drive from Horse Cave, but good southern style food.
I’ve only been to the area once (four years ago). We ate at Park Mammoth Resort. OMG! It was one of the BEST meals I’ve EVER had!
Authentic, old fashioned Southern hospitality. Huge portions – I had country fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas, stewed apples. The food was homestyle and just like Grandma used to make.
The resort itself is a bit shabby but still has its die-hard fans. It also has a golf course. Here’s the info if you’re interested:
I65 at 31 Exit/Park City, KY/Phone 270-749-4101
I can’t think of anything in Horse Cave itself that I could recommend, but if you go south a few miles on 31-W into Cave City, Kentucky and then venture inside Mammoth Cave National Park, you’ll find something that might be worth your time. At least it was for me during the afternoon and evening.
I posted this reply back in late March of this year:
Yesterday a friend of mine and I went to the restaurant at the Mammoth Cave Hotel, located inside Mammoth Cave National Park, to try their fried chicken. Each plate was $12.95, but what they gave us was worth it. All three pieces were enormous! And the meal was pretty good. I ate every bit of it, which gives you an indication of its worth. I didn’t have room for much of my green beans or potato salad, both of which were average but a tad better than what you usually find. The menu said that the restaurant didn’t serve fried chicken until 4:30 p.m., but when asked if they would make some anyway, they didn’t mind at all.
We’ll be in Horse Cave in early August. Where do we eat?? I’ve heard of a place that sells country hams and has food.
Horse Cave, Ky
