Had dinner at the bar on the first night in Louisville, close to our hotel. Enjoyed oysters and peel and eat shrimp. Great whiskey sours. Attentive bartenders.

This is a great place to eat if you’re in the area near the river. The pork chops were pretty amazing. Others in the group had the mussels and the beef rib. Be prepared to wait in prime times as this is a happening place.

Great food and service. The oysters were the freshest we had ever had, and from Maryland (thanks UPS). The brisket was great. It is worth the wait.

My husband and I visited this restaurant with three other couples before going to a show. We tried a good variety of the menu items and liked everything. The greens were fabulous. The seating was spacious and the service was great! Loved the warehouse set-up....More

Reservations are advisable. Will save you a big bar bill unless you like to sit and watch people eat while waiting for your turn. Enjoy, Joe
