The Paducah Axe is one of my favorite dining and drinking establishments. Great brunch on weekends and on Tuesday they have 1$ tacos and margaritas. I can vouch for the tacos, but the margaritas are too sweet for me. Mostly outdoor dining with axe throwing indoors. Located in the Market Square, it is close to other downtown establishments and shopping.

The Freight House owner was on Top Chief a few years ago and got second place. The shrimp and grits are a local popular dish. I like the Silver Fin which is an Asian Carp caught out of our local waters by commercial fishermen. Top shelf drinks can be 16$ a glass, so just be aware. The bar has a great bourbon selection. Top notch.

A small menu, but great BBQ. Their original location is in the lake area, but lucky for us, they recently opened a location in downtown. Some insider info for ya. A sandwich called the Shelby is not on the menu, but all the people working there know what it is. It’s a Texas toast melt with bbq beef or pork. Pretty yummy. Also, try coleslaw on your pork sandwich for no extra charge.

One of my favorite places to go if I want a beer and some good food. The head chef is from Dresden, so some of the items on the menu are Germanic in nature. The pizzas are made with the locally produced pizza crust by Kirchhoff’s bakery. My favorite is the Firey Hawaiian. If you don’t like beer, don’t panic. The PBW bartender will hook you up with anything you desire.

Bourbon serving establishment

If you are a Bourbon enthusiast, barrel and bond is an absolute must. Dare I say? I believe this establishment has the largest bourbon selection in the world. The establishments on the bourbon will put their product first for marketing and sales purposes, barrel and bond is dedicated to serving their customers with the widest selection, independent from selfish marketing causes.

For a quiet and intimate atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating, try out this little jewel of a bar located in Lower Town. The federal style house is older than the civil war and survived the yankee army burnings around fort Paducah. Recently restored to its former glory, the Smedley Yeiser house is located at 533 Madison Street.

In the old coke plant, there is a marvel of craft beer works for all beer drinkers. My favorite is the IPA called 37 Flood. Come and get a flight to help you find your beer of choice.

Things to do

In the downtown area, you will find museums, art galleries, plays, live concerts, and a little movie theater located on the back of the river heritage museum.
A very intimate match box theatre plays the movies of today and the past. It’s the only movie theater in town that will let you drink beer in the theater. Before the pandemic Maiden Alley would alternate a music venue, and hopefully that will return soon. For now checkout the movie schedule on maidenalleycinema.com.
