I don't recognize the name "Reiffen's" but could it have been, by any chance, the Lodge at General Butler State Park? Many of the Kentucky State Parks have a Lodge/Motel with an excellent restaurant in the complex. The Lodge at General Butler fits your description. It has a somewhat limited menu, and a nice fireplace in the dining area.
A Google search turned up a place by that name at 1968 Us Hiway 227 in Carrolton. The phone number is 502-732-5570. Call them and see if they fit the description. We generally make a fuel stop in Carrolton when using I-71...and if the traffic is due to be bad in Louisville an hour later, we'll jump across the river there and come home on the Indiana side thru Madison.
