    Shelbyville, IN Maker's Mark Bourbon House

    Has anyone visited this location? I'm currently trying to make reservations for my b-day next week but their reservation line is a pain. Anyway, I noticed that they have a Pappy sampler on the menu for $15 and was wondering if it was worth it or if they bring out three eyedroppers Also wanted to know about their bourbon selection and quality of food. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Shelbyville, IN Maker's Mark Bourbon House

    It's been a while since we been there (even though they are in the casino, they are not open every night....the night I won a poker tourney they weren't open for me to have a victory pour). They do have a very nice bourbon selection. We found the food to be inconsistent between visits....one time it a very food, another visit it was disappointing considering the price.

    Thanks, Tom. I finally got through to someone on the reservation line and got set up for Tuesday night. I'll post some thoughts.

    My family is from Shelbyville. Didn't realize this was there. Is it in that LIVE Casino?

    Josh, you really need to get out more (at least somewhere other than the curling rink)!

    Makers Mark lounge is in Indiana Live. My last visit there I had a very nice pour of WLW (I think 2010 release) for $8

    Still would like to hear from Brian, how the food was on his visit.

    Wow, that's a great price! Maybe we can all schedule a trip there sometime. I need to check it out.

    Sorry to have abandoned the thread I started! I posted comments in another thread and forgot about this one.
    The food was very good. My steak was massive and delicious. Everyone was happy with their selections and took home leftovers. As Tom mentioned, the bourbon selection was good and seemed reasonably priced. The Pappy sampler I ordered came with samples of 10, 12, and 15 year bottlings. Each one contained a decent amount to taste.
    The experience was good enough that I'm up for going back, so let me know if a meeting starts to form!

    I have every other Saturday off. Give me enough notice and I can probably squeeze in a bite and a couple of pours!
