Honeysuckle Bourbon House

Built on the belief that good food and cocktails should be special and memorable. Honeysuckle offers guests a fine dining experience in a gorgeous historical setting. Located in Churchill’s, guests can indulge in frog legs, steak, trout or mouth watering burgers. We highly recommend Honeysuckle to anyone visiting Berea.
