I absolutely love this place. It's great to get a drink and watch a game, and the food is even better. Hands down the best fish sandwich in the city. A great Louisville tradition too.

This is an old restaurant but has the BEST fried chicken. It takes 20 minutes to get but is will worth the wait. We call ahead. You order from the counter and they bring it to your table yelling your name. We LOVE it.
