Place is closed and no one has a job Tracy is the co owner or was she just up and closed it this morning left a note on the door that place is closed for good . nice way to treat the employee's
It will belong to Central Bank now and probably sit empty for a long time unless some makes and Antique store out of the place .
They say Eddie did not even know about it till he heard it today on the news , he must be on the road some where or at home in Perryville . I don't think he came there too much after they got a divorce She had 1/2 ownership in it .

I looked forward to going there now that the weather is warming up a bit. Last visit food was good,service excellent,facility clean. This makes me sad. Hope Eddie buys it out or works it out. Featured on ky chefs recently and food looked great. People need to support the workers and owners at this time. Just sad. Did I say sad?

Jerry Houck has been gone for a few weeks now, so he wasn't involved in this recent event. It was doing 100 times better while he was there. The place was already going downhill and he did his best. They were just too proud of their beer prices, the service was horrible and the food mediocre. Never got the same quality of food each time you went. Since it opened, it has never been the quality of restaurant it should have been.

Montgomery Gentry had a hit song called MY TOWN so when he put the place in Harrodsburg he started referring to it as his Town

He lives in Perryville Ky but he came from Lancaster Ky

It just a thing using the song to promote his bar.

I think Reno's is poor quality. I wouldn't waste my hard earned money. We don't eat out often and when we do I want it to be special.

The place was really nice but Tracy should have stayed out of the food area and the people she was paying nice amount do what they were hired to do....all the original staff knows what I am talking about...

If the food was consistently good then it would have been one thing but you never could depend on good quality and for the price it wasn't worth the chance.
