Loved the park schnitzel sandwich and burger. And those fritters and sauces. All this food we enjoyed in the beer garden. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Come here for the burgers and the extensive beer offerings and the chance to walk around the interesting Highlands neighborhood. Don't expect too much from the wait staff (yes, they are a bit pretentious and off-putting) or any elegant touches (offering flatware and napkins, and...More

We were in Louisville for three nights, and ate here the first night. It was so good we came back! The patio is lovely- get there early for a good spot. The choir loft takes reservations and had reserved us a nice table by the...More

Such a unique place in an old church. Staff and service are superb (just like their sister restaurant Grale House; seems to be the overall culture). We freakin' love their burgers!!!

Great $16 burger -- super small but very good. Good fritas. Amazing selection of beer. Surprised after a certain time that they only had certain varieties available for down stairs. We apparently had ordered an "upstairs beer" before they closed the upstairs and were not...More

Small (former church) bar/restaurant (does have an outside patio) with a large, very good selection of craft beers, and a small but really excellent food selection. Service is very good, although lines can be a bit slow. Overall, a great place to go.

First time visiting after being told several times I would love the place. We went for the Kolsch night but the rain caused that to be canceled. We did thoroughly enjoy sitting at the bar and experiencing the different brews offered. We also enjoyed a...More

It is mainly pub fare. I think the menu rotates, but when I went they had fantastic mussels, some burgers, quail, charcuterie etc. Not a traditional dinner menu, but definitely some tasty options to go with the crazy good... More
