This is a really fun place with good ford, local entertainment and a good selection of reasonably priced wines, spirits and beers.

Went to the Bard's Town for the Improv show. The Louisville group was much funnier than the Chicago group. I'm not sure the show was worth the $15.00 cover. We had a couple of drinks from the bar and the service was good and the...More

We went for the improv show, which was awesome and loved the food. The gooey butter cake was delicious. The Reuben was fantastic.

Really enjoyed my time here. Enjoyed several good local beers on tap. Nice bartenders and locals filled the place. They also have an event room where things were going on. Seems like they use it for various shows and group meetings. Cool place.

As a native Louisvillian, I am disappointed this was my first visit to The Bards Town. The food was quite good, the service was tremendous and the play was excellent! I'd highly recommend the Diablo pasta with either chicken or sausage--both quite delicious.

We randomly found the restaurant off google. We are from Wisconsin and am not familiar with the area. Figured we would give it a try. Very good service, very quick to get food out, amazing homemade dressings, and cool environment

Went to the Bard's Town for dinner and a play recently. Food was very good, especially the tomato bisque soup. Restaurant service was great. Despite the very small stage that had essentially the same set throughout the play, the facilities are comfortable and the play...More

A very laid back community. Wear comfy shoes and enjoy! Cuisine ranges from Ethiopian to Sushi and all points in-between. Be sure to save a few hours to browse the many shops, thrift stores, and book-store.
