The Main Dining Room at Beaumont Inn features classic Kentucky cuisine and southern hospitality inside our historic 1845 building. In recognition for nearly 100 years and five generations of our family welcoming guests, we are very honored to receive the James Beard Foundation America’s Classic Award (read more about that). While guest attire in the Dining Room is not as casual at our Tavern, shorts are now allowed. Think dressy casual. Advance reservations are highly recommended.
On the menu, choose from a variety of our Traditional Beaumont Inn Classic Dishes, including Corn Pudding, Country Ham, and Fried Chicken. Many of the other dishes on the menu have long-standing positions including the two very Classic Starters, the Minted Grapefruit Juice and the Tomato Aspic Salad. The weekly Classic Beaumont Inn Vegetable will include favorites like Mock-Scalloped Oysters, Kentucky Green Rice, Candied Kershaw or Yellow Squash Soufflé. And don’t forget the General Robert E. Lee orange-lemon cake! See some of our recipes.
