We were traveling from Florence to Louisville and this was by far the best meal of our trip! We sampled several items - bayou shrimp, main cross salad and the hot brown were all delicious! The only thing better than the food was the friendliness of the staff! All around excellent!

Went with friends and now we are Saturday night regulars driving in from Louisville. This is gourmet dining at very affordable pricing. Family friendly, generous portions, and everything on the menu is fantastic. A lot of reviews for the meatloaf, but the Hot Brown, Beef Medallions, and Swordfish would match up to all high end places. Get there early, there will be a wait.

We lucked out when we stumbled upon this place! Jewell's On Main has a wide variety of food on their menu. The two dishes we tried, shrimp n' grits and the pork tenderloin, were absolutely delicious! They also had other menu items such as fried chicken and waffles, hot brown, and chicken quesadilla that I would love to try next time around!

We both grew up in Gallatin County. We went on to continue our education at Western Kentucky University with Justin graduating with a degree in Hotel Restaurant Management and I, (Rena), a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. After graduation, we both joined Higher Education Dining Services in 1997, Justin as the Regional Executive Chef and I as a Marketing Program Manager. We traveled around the South for over 10 years working with Universities to train staff, develop brands and research food trends. During this time, Justin also continued his education in food. We absolutely enjoyed what we were doing but with two small kids and all the travel, things were a little hectic. We made the decision to leave the corporate world and come home to Gallatin County. As luck would have it, we had an opportunity to purchase our location. We opened in May, 2008 and picking our name was easy. We named it Jewell's after Justin's late grandmother, Jewell Pittman, who inspired his love of food.
