Came into town for a quick trip. Couldn't miss an opportunity for a meal at J Grahams. Delicious, per usual. Friendly staff, outstanding service. Love the inviting environment of the café. Cannot wait to come back during the holidays.

Amazing filet and mashed potatoes with well kept atmosphere that makes you feel you're back in the 1920s but still looking new. Service is very good and very honored to have you in.More

Located in the Brown Hotel J. Grahams Cafe was elegant but comfortable. Delicious food served by a top shelf staff. The Hot Brown rocks!. Next time we visit Louisville we will stay at the Brown Hotel so we can eat here more than once.
