I am really excited about the restaurant opening. I stopped by there yesterday, and it is huge and beautiful! I have my interview tomorrow, and I am glad there is actually going to be a higher class restaurant in this town. I love waiting tables, but I have worked in Lexington and Louisville in big places, but you cannot make money in these small town restaurants. I feel alot of the ppl in this town will take this place for granted, and I also don't want it to end up another Renos, its trash, especially the owner who sits at the table every night and treats the females bad b/c she is a jealous fat, uh.... person(LOL). I don't think Tracy will let this place get like that.

Today is Veteran's Day. Please go to You Tube and find the song "Didn't I" sung by Montgomery Gentry. Look at Eddie and Troy's face then come back and tell me that song did not come from their hearts.
God bless you Eddie and Troy. You touched my heart today with your music. I have heard you say so many times...that is what you want. Thank you.

It has not been TWO years its only been about 1 although i do agree that it has been kinda long for them to build it but i know that there were a few issues that they did not know would happen
It has been just a little over a year since he bought the land. Then he had to get all the permits and they ran into a little problem because of getting the sewer up and running. It is going to take a little longer to get anything built on the bypass because the water and sewer hasn't been put in.

What a joke bring back live music and they book a covers band for new years. Get with the program sign a band that can at least play southern rock and sound good doing it.

The band they picked are dreadful hope they have 10 people there for the show.

LOL! Many people thought that they would be seeing Brad Paisley, Brooks and Dunn, and Taylor Swift on a regular basis there. How disappointed they are going to be when they get Brad Burchett, the Non-Filters, and Tommy Hurst.

Who did they book for New Years?

I've been to the steakhouse 2 times. It is beautiful. They do need to work on the service, but I think they are overwhelmed that it has been so busy. I'm proud to have a great place like this close by where you can go enjoy good food and music. When I was there the music wasn't too loud, just created a wonderful atmosphere. I think someone on here is showing immaturity in trying to put the Montgomery's down. I'm happy to know someone who is famous. Never thought I'd live to see a BCHS grad play in the super bowl or have a country music star live in Boyle Co. You should be proud he calls Perry ville home.

Someone needs to open a real country music place around here
Eddie Montgomerys is all that new wild crap thats not country music we need to George Jones or Randy Travis Hank Williams stuff .get some Willie stuff going.

But I guess this is always going to be a one horse town that even the last horse moved on.

OK.... you are aware that the city does not spend tax dollars on things like laundry mats, grocery stores, and restaurants? You do understand that those are privately owned businesses?

Perhaps you should go to the bank Monday morning and ask to speak to a loan officer. Tell him or her that you are interested in taking out a loan to start a laundry mat. That's where businesses come from.

Alternatively, you could take out a loan and buy a couple of taxi cabs. If you feel the demand for public transportation is that high. The last cab service in Harrodsburg shut down after the owner stated he was tired of having to take people to work at 6 o'clock in the morning.

Good luck to you and let us all know how it goes!
