The Honky Tonk BBQ Restaurant In Kentucky That’s Right On The River

There are many places throughout Kentucky where going out to eat is more than just delicious food. You can play sand volleyball here, dine in a castle here, and even order food directly from your boat here, and those are just the beginning. We love to combine incredible food with a festive environment and one Lexington eatery has that concept mastered. Proud Mary BBQ is a riverfront restaurant that serves up mouthwatering barbecue, seafood, and more and its honky-tonk atmosphere makes it a must-try dining destination in the Bluegrass.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Proud Mary BBQ would be worth a visit for the BBQ and other food alone, but throw in a honky-tonk environment with live music, games, and a riverfront patio, and you have one ultimate dining destination in Kentucky.
