This Charming Kentucky Restaurant Is Steps Away From A Little-Known Waterfall

Kentuckians enjoy many things, but two activities that almost everyone would never turn down are eating a great meal and tracking down a waterfall. There’s nothing better than having a delicious meal at a local restaurant and also witnessing the beauty of Kentucky with a scenic waterfall. If you enjoy both of these activities, then you’ll want to head to Falls of Rough and The Dam Restaurant. This family-owned restaurant and general store is a favorite among locals and visitors to the nearby lake, and it also happens to be just steps and minutes away from a little-known waterfall that’s full of Kentucky history.
