The main stem of Elkhorn Creek, the second largest tributary of the Kentucky River, encapsulates the history of central Kentucky from pre-settlement, the frontier era, through the industrial era to the present where the creek is used primarily for recreational purposes. The landscape has been transformed and in some ways its environment degraded by human presence, yet retains an allure from those who love nature and want to immerse in a semi-wild place fishing, kayaking, or simply hiking portions of its length.

Menu ($8/ticket, available August 1)
Sliced Turkey with Cornbread Dressing
Caesar Salad
Green Beans
