Harrison-Smith House

HSM photo

Harrison-Smith House is the realization of one group’s belief that Kentucky has as much to offer in the food and beverage world as anywhere in the world. Bardstown, where the restaurant is located, is the official Bourbon capitol of the world and that helps define what the group sees as the local cuisine and much of what influences their menus. Surrounded by the best distilleries in the world as well as some of the best farmland, there is an abundance of local, responsibly raised meats, fruits and vegetables that the restaurant utilizes in addition to the native spirit. At the core, though, is the group’s belief that hospitality is job one and service to the guest paramount. Harrison-Smith House strives to be a very “of the place” restaurant possible and to show off all that Kentucky has to offer.

Dedication to the farm-to-table concept carries over to the craft cocktail program, which focuses on pre-prohibition style beverages.  Each handmade cocktail, often served in custom glassware, has complex and unique flavor profile sure to please your palate.
