Taste our Southern Hospitality

Dining Out

In Livingston County our restaurants are off the chain…

You won’t find any same old franchise restaurant here. What you will find is down home goodness, traditional southern recipes, and award-winning cuisine.  Our list includes Grand Rivers Restaurants and Livingston County Restaurants for some of the best fare in the Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley area.

It just wouldn’t show good manners, if we let you go home hungry.
