Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hearty Kentucky fare at Doe Run Inn’s restaurant, located outside Louisville in Brandenburg.
Built at the turn of the 19th century with stone bought from Abraham Lincoln’s father and situated on 650 acres of pristine woodland, this antique-filled former mill charms diners with a quaint atmosphere and a menu of comforting cuisine. For lunch, feast on the famously fulfilling fried chicken, double breaded and served with a cream gravy ($6.99), or partake in the popular Kentucky Hot Brown, an open-faced turkey-and-ham sandwich smothered in rich mornay sauce, topped with tomato and bacon and broiled to a scrumptious sizzle ($8.99).
For dinner, nocturnal noshers can,sup on the catfish platter, eight ounces of piscine pleasure breaded with cornmeal, fried to a crispy brown or broiled, and joined by homemade tartar sauce ($12.99). Satiate sweet teeth with bread pudding, drowning in a delectable sea of rich Kentucky bourbon sauce ($3.49).
The back-porch dining room affords a majestic view of the verdant, wooded banks of Doe Run Creek, often used as a staging ground for squirrel and deer reenactments of Civil War battles. On Friday evenings, answer the siren song of the all-you-can-eat seafood buffet ($16.99), or free yourself from the shackles of set menus on Sundays, when Doe Inn dispenses with the bill of fare altogether in favor of an all-day brunch and comfort-food buffet ($11.99)
