are the workers going to still have a job after the turnover? I hope so. I do think cv should get pretty young waitress to serve alcohol... some of the girls are looking to old younger women would brighten the place up!

They had another great restaurant in Harlan it was the Miners Diner in Totz, It had GREAT STEAKS and so much more. Awesome Chicken, Best in Letcher, Bell, and Harlan County! Hamburger was fresh ground every day and Everything was home made. But the ppl of the county would not support them. They were forced to close! Now they want to cry about no place to eat that is good. Well you had it and you lost. Steak House and shoe leather steak! Mexican you can't find the steak they are so thin,. and KFC, well I personally eathen there and have NEVER gotten fresh chicken. Now eat the slop you have left.. I go to Corbin to eat now...

I hope you people on here is happy that the steakhouse is shuting down because now there will be no decent place to eat in harlan. I for one do not like mexican food and i will never eat there. I think it's a shame to that people has to go out of town to eat like at a cracker barrell as long as the steakhouse has been in business in harlan.

If this is true whats going to happen to the employees? There are a handful of great, hard working employees still there that's been there for years and have families depending on them. Will they be offered to stay with the new business or going straight to the unemployment line. AS far as the business its been in business since 1979 I will hate to see it go but it just needed to change with the time. what worked for a decade doesn't work now. It's the same it was when my parents dated and when me and my husband dated. Like any business they have good and bad dishes. I can mention a lot of bad stuff about places you people said are good. mexican resturant dont understand them food gives you the runs and you have to keep an eye out on your young daughters being stared at. cracker barrel no friendly service and half the time your orders not right plus the waite time.

Yes C.V is taking over its going to be a Shilo's. An the workers are suppose to get to keep thier jobs. Some of them prob want stay. An some will get fired cause they dont do thier job half the time. An when they do do their job its half a&sed. But ther are some real hard workers thier. Yes i do work at the stake house. And we will miss Ken he is good to his employees. And before anyone can say its , me or anyone else there sleeps qirh him that is not it. Ken cares about his employees. C.V sure want treat us like Ken does.

I know there is some sorry workers there at the steakhouse and some that work there tails off to. If they don't straighten up when c.v. takes over then there will be a lot of firing going on. I hope that one waitress with dark hair still works there I think she is good looking.

yes Bennets are putting shilos in there where Kens is now. YOU CAN eat your peanuts and throw them in the floor. what a mess . WILL keep the waitresses busy for sure. We have patronized Ken over 30 years at the steak house and always been treated right by all. so I have no gripe with them.
JUST hope the Shilo`s will do good.. yeah they will serve alcholol beverages.. how many of the christians will continue to go there. I wonder. I dont think it matters cause when they go out of town they patronize restaurants that serve drinks..
