Libby’s Southern Comfort in Covington is an Homage to Fried Chicken and Tradition


Libby's Southern Comfort is located at 35 W. Eighth St. in Duveneck Square and is helmed by Brad Wainscott, whose local culinary lineage extends to longstanding Kentucky mainstays The Greyhound Tavern and Tousey House Tavern, which is owned by his father.

"It takes a lot of faith to leave your comfort zone and go out on your own, but after much consideration we felt it was time," Wainscott told CityBeat in an interview earlier this year.

The menu pays tribute to Southern classics with a touch of Charleston and features dishes like goetta hush puppies, oysters on the half shell and fried chicken. In addition to food, Libby's serves a wide drink menu that features vintage bourbons, Cheerwine bourbon slushes and Braxton Beers, among other options.

The restaurant is named after Wainscott and his wife Michelle's youngest daughter Libby and the logo features Libby standing alongside the family's black lab, Yuma.
