I did not start reading the reviews on this restaurant until I had already been seated and ordered. I have to say I thought a lot of the negative reviews seem off based. It was a Friday night and it was very busy, but I was served promptly and the food came very quickly. The waitstaff although clearly busy seemed... More

This restaurant is near the airport, the Univ of Louisville and Cardinal Stadium, directly in front of the Hilton Garden Inn Airport hotel. I was impressed with the menu. Enjoyed the salads and soups.

I was attending a seminar in Louisville and the Cardinall Hall of Fame Cafe was within walking distance of my hotel so I tried it out. I found it to be a neat place with a lot of character showing the U of L sports history. The food was very good and the portions were outstanding. I had some ribs... More

We picked the Cafe for two reasons. Dad is a graduate and a former football player, and it was close to the hotel, which gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. There's quite a few nice exhibits, and Dad even found a floor plaque of someone he played with in 1941. The food is pretty much standard pub grub.... More

Slow, small portions and bland food. Overpriced and under delivered. Not impressed. All of food was mediocre at best.

Awesome restaurant if your into baseball artifacts. Food wise it needs some help. Service was amazing. Very good staff catering to your needs. I had the pizza, which tasted like it was rolled in every other food that was cooking?

Just looking for a good local restaurant near our hotel ... this was recommended by desk clerk. Not the atmosphere we were looking for after being on the road 10 hours today. Very loud ... for a Tuesday night (!) As we were leaving we spotted another seating area NOT in the bar, would have been nice to have been... More
