Main Dining Room Details When Open (please note the limited dining status above)

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.
