Harrodsburg has and will never change. I have lived here off and on for 45 yrs. The reason it is "not allowed" to change is because the families/names who monopolized this town do not allow capitolism/competition for the money to go any where but in their pockets. Reeds, Dedmans, Colemans, Landrums, McCloud, to mention a few. They did not want Corp. Outside growth to take any potential income from their peaseants. It has never been about the people of Harrodsburg, but the greety folks who's families were lucky enough years ago to be able to start a businees here, that has kept H-burg from growing.
Unlike other towns, Harrodsburg does not grow. There is a reason for that. The reason for this is simple. Tourism is king here. Beaumont Inn is the reason. A Dedman runs the tourist commission. The tourist commission collects food taxes from local resturants and much of that money goes to promote Beaumont Inn. A Dedman is chairman of Harrodsburg First. A Dedman runs Harrodsburg Trust, an agency which promotes historic buildings which are big in the tourist business. A Dedman is Chairman of Harrodsburg First, an agency which promotes downtown Harrodsburg. When there was a Drama here a Dedman was always chairman of that. Until this chain is broken Harrodsburg will continue to be backwards and quaint, the very thing which holds the city of Harrodsburg back and pushes money to Beaumont Inn. ARE THE DEDMANS BAD PEOPLE? No, they are fine and generous people. The fault does not lie with them. It lies with those who are elected to serve Harrodsburg and Mercer County. These are the people who grant the power to control. Why blame people who simply use a good thing?

Come on this topic is about the steakhouse, don't side track the conversation. Lets talk about how bad the place has got since they fired all the good employees. Also Tracy is out of her league, she has no place in the restraunt buisness, she has no clue what it takes to run a restraunt.

Well the city govt and commissions bent over backwards to let this place open. Danville zoning turned them down. So the screwed up local politicians have a hand in this place's failure. The restaurant never should have opened in the first place.

Maybe Toby Keith should come to Harrodsburg and buy out Eddie's Steakhouse. He's obviously able to make his restaurants work and succeed. LOL!

Last I heard it was his sister. If it is may it be a valuable lesson to him. Never hire family unless you can fire family.

You are exactly right!!!
Compare towns as they were 40 years ago and you will find that Harrodsburg was much the same as others such as Winchester, Georgetown, Bardstown, Stanford, etc. These town have become more modern with modern stores and resturants. Harrodsburg not only has not modernized, it has regressed. We have lost our clothing stores and downtown has become a place of government buildings and consigment shops. But Harrodsburg is the historic, pioneer town and those in control aim to keep it that way. That is very good for people in the tourist business, but not so good for those of us who must live in a past centered town.

Wasn't the mayor at the time Eddie's was proposed here a relative of Mr. Montgomery? Maybe that was the reason the town commisioners bent over for this flop!

This whole area has a lot of potential, look at Danville it could be a lot better as far a shoping and eating, but for some reason nothing ever happens, there are a lot of people holding this area back. Make a few road improvements and bring some good food and shopping in, and this would be an ideal bedroom community for Lexington.

Well i still say get those sexy bartenders naked and every thing will magically become better in this town. Why do people want to complain about our small town i love it to death.The only time you have to worry about being stuck in traffic is around three or if there is a train. Thats a major plus to me, lex is only 35 to 45 minutes away if you need the big city life just drive over get your fix and come back home and enjoy the quiet. There are so many oppurtunitys for people to start their own buisness here as well. Potential is unlimited but we dont need to be like other cunties we have all we need here except opakaged liqour (which i dont understand) if we want something different we dont have to drive far for it either. Alls i am asking is take a step back and look at this beautifull town and eddies bartenders lol
