We stopped in the bar for a drink. It is worth stop to see the history of this hotel. The hotel has nice displays of the history of the hotel and the owner. They also have lots of hotel artifacts on display. The decor and fur future is original, roaring 20's era. Very nice!

Lovely place to sit with a drink and visit with friends. As the name suggests, it is in the magnificent lobby of the Brown Hotel. We sat at the bar and received a great education on the bourbon industry from John, the bartender. He was very helpful and friendly.

It was a great spot to relax and drink an old fashion. The staff was attentive. The food was very fresh and good. We just had a light snack of fruit and cheese.

We made a reservation for dinner in the bar but ended up walking past and having lunch there. Delicious! Big portion! They even give you the recipe!

Busy Saturday night, love the energy of the place, my recommendation is to get there early in order to get a nice table. The hot chicken is to die for and the lobster mac and cheese is the best in the city. Staff is very friendly and attentive.Ask for Georgina or Augusto the mgr. Check out their collection of bourbons

The menu is small but all you need is one thing. The hot brown is absolutely awesome. I'm pretty sure that they order the bacon directly from God's market. My gf had the salmon and could not stop talking about how great it was. I was unable to try it because I was busy dominating every last pc on my... More

We was passing through Louisville and had to stop at the home of the hot brown. The food did not disappoint, nor did the atmosphere, as restaurant is in a old elegant beautiful hotel. I of course had the hot brown which was as I expected, delicious. The wife not being a hot brown fan, chose the club sandwich and... More

6 months ago, this was my favorite go to place to be guaranteed the best service and the best burger in town. It was thick and fresh, tall and handsome. It was encased in a fresh brioche bun and layered with avocado, bacon, grilled onions, lettuce and tomato, and held together with a miniature sword with a pickle and multiple... More

Dear David, Thank you for taking the time to write. So sorry to hear of your recent experience. However, we STILL have the best hamburgers in town! I have one every week just to make sure. We clearly missed the mark on your recent visit. That will never happen again. Please call me before your next night out and I... More
