10 Best Restaurants in Georgetown KY

These are not in any particular order, just numbered 1-10. 

#1 Rodney's on Broadway

If you are looking for fine dining with an upscale feel, then you will want to eat at Rodney's on Broadway. Rodney's is a unique dining experience located in the heart of Georgetown. 

Rodney's on Broadway

The restaurant is housed in an old historic home. Rodney’s opened in January 2011 and is owned and operated by Chef Rodney Jones and his wife Elizabeth Johnson-Jones. Chef Rodney has over 30 years of experience as a chef — and you can seriously tell it in the food he creates.

#2 Galvin's on Main

Galvin's on Main is a family owned and operated restaurant that opened their doors for the first time in 2008, and since then have been rocking some delicious food, rustic whiskey barrel decor, and more.


Outside, the name of the building immediately catches your eye. The sign is made of whiskey barrels and really stands out. The front of the building fits in with the downtown decor but has a saloon type feel.

Once you walk inside, the smell of incredible food will taunt you.

#3 Josie's 

I fell in love with Josie’s. The atmosphere here is everything I could want and more in a restaurant. The food though? WOAH! It was so good and so fresh.

Our waitress told me that they hand spank their beef — which means that every single burger is freshly patted out. Our spicy jalapeno burger was so juicy and so delicious. And don’t get me started on those sweet potato fries.

#4 Local Feed

This farm to table restaurant sources all of their food straight from local farmers and stores. If you visit here, there are two things for sure you need to get — the fried chicken and the mac and cheese.

Both had me literally passed out on the floor. It was THAT GOOD. If you’re a fan of empowering locals through traveling, then this is a must visit for you.

#5 Fava's

Fava’s was another diner location. We visited here on Sunday morning before leaving town. We got coffee and chatted with the waitress and bought some delicious local jellies.

People often ask where the name Red State comes from. Truth be told it came about as an offhand comment between friends. While watching the election returns one night Scott turned to a friend and said, “You ever notice how all the good barbecue comes from the Red State?” And there the name was born.

They have won a ton of awards for the most excellent bbq in Kentucky. Y'all just have to check them out. I have heard that the pulled chicken is fabulous and they have pretzels and beer cheese. I am there for real.
