    Great place to dine in. Me and my wife went to celebrate our 1 month anniversary. Table was decorated by them and we got a free desert too !!! I loved their salmon !! You gotta try it !

    If this clubby traditional American restaurant were any more quintessential Louisville, diners would eat on a thoroughbred while brandishing a baseball bat and quoting Muhammad Ali. [Eater 18 Member]

    Un-be-freakn-leavable. If you like yourself, try their shrimp and grits or risk spending your remaining days on this planet in deep dark regret. Duck confit and lamb were perfect.

    This place is legit. The filet was done perfectly. The pudding at the end was like a delicious caramel flan. One of the best meals I've ever had. Excellent! Live music! Tons of bourbon!

    I come sit @ the bar for the warm brie salad, shrimp and grits, and a drink like 1 to every other month for lunch. Enjoy the atmosphere. A big kudos to the bar-temptress Vanessa.

    Classic atmosphere. Tenderloin is top notch and cooked to perfection. Loved the Piano player. For special occasions or just a great time.

    This is the epitome of Louisville hospitality & charm. A trio plays the in the corner. The wait staff has perfect delivery. The Lamb is sublime. The orange dreamsicle pie has pop rocks. Perfect

    Living in California, I still dream of this place. Shrimp & grits, tomato artichoke soup (lunch only) and everything else ... plus the best atmosphere of any place ... Louisville's best period.
