Attended Zwanze Day 2018 at this wonderful establishment. The staff was incredible. They were friendly, helpful, and loved beer as much as those that they served. 10/10. I wish I lived closet to enjoy their aged cheddar grits every morning.

Bardstown Road has so many food and drink options. There is something very quirky and fun at Holy Grale. Extensive beer selection. I don’t drink beer so happy there were a few wine selections. Always a safe choice is the beer cheese and pretzel bread....More

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

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!!!

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
