Barley's Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (11/21/2014)
“Well I've heard all the talk about Barleys at work for four years. Never went in there till yesterday. My loss. I passed it every day, and just never took time to stop, but I will from now on. Coldest beer and 50 cent pool tables. I felt comfortable the whole time I was there. One of the owners came... ”

Barley's Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (02/01/2014)
“I read reviews on Barley's. I'm very picky on my pizzas, so I went there to pick it apart. I COULDN'T !! It was the best Ive ever had. I've go there twice a week just to eat. I don't drink, but if I did, this would be my watering hole. You really need to try it. I lived in NY. for 12 years. There ... ”

“It's a little off the beaten path, but I like that. I've been going there for almost two years, and I haven't as much as seen an argument in there. The food is great and the owners are the nicest people you would ever wanna meet. No one hits on my woman. It's a very respectful place. I recommend it ... ”

Indi's Fast Food Restaurant

 1 star(s)  (05/27/2013)
“I've been getting food from the Poplar Level store for a long time, in recent months the quality of the food and service has gotten noticeably worse. On Sat eve, May 24, about 8pm, I and two friends stopped there to get food. When I placed my order I noticed that the young woman was paying more ... ”

Barley's Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (05/20/2013)
“Very nice out of the way place. I met one of the owners. The whole staff was so nice. The food was unbelievable. Not what you would expect in a bar. More like food from the highlands or east end. The pizza is like no pizza I've eaten before. Try that first. The only thing is the kids had to leave ... ”

Barley's Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (05/19/2013)
“Barleys in kind-a off the beaten' path, but well worth the time to go. It's not a hole in the wall, but very casual setting. All the people made my friends and I feel like we were part of the Family. We got pizza. OH MY GOD !!!! There are no word to say about the pizza except, if you don't go get a... ”

Jumbo Buffet

“Living in NYC most of my life, unless you go to an authentic China Town in a big city, you will never find GOOD chinese food. Especially in KY. Jumbo offers some of the better chinese I'v tasted here in KY. For the price, its a great value. Sunday's are the best. Crawfish, pick n peel shrimp & m... ”

Tuscany's Italian Restaurant

 3 star(s)  (05/14/2012)
“I would have rated this a 4 but there are subtle areas that are not quite there; an example, the waitresses are good, but seem unsure and not suggestive as to their offerings, the menu does not offer a variety of wheat dishes. However, the food is usually very good, though limited selections that h... ”
