Southern Dining and Hospitality in Owensboro: The Miller House

It’s a memorable dining experience when you find a restaurant that is quintessentially southern to its core. To me, that’s one of the greatest joys of life. I recently had that experience at the Miller House of Owensboro, Kentucky. From the stately exterior, to the charming white tablecloth interior, to the wonderful southern food — it’s a must visit by my standard. If you find yourself in the region, do yourself a favor and make a reservation!

About the Miller House

Located in Owensboro’s historic downtown district, the Miller House is a family-owned restaurant that serves traditional food with a southern influence. The restaurant is lodged in a historic home that was built in 1905 and guests have the opportunity to enjoy brunch, lunch, and/or dinner on the property. While they have classics year-round, the Miller House offers seasonal menus to ensure the highest quality produce (much of which they grow); additionally, they proudly serve Kentucky Proud products.
