    The ox tail poutine is incredible. They were also kind enough to give us extra bread to soak up all the amazing curry of their mussels dish. Beer selection, decor and service make this place a must.

    Omitted from the inaugural Eater 18 only because this converted Unitarian Church is more bar than restaurant, its kitchen (elevated pub food) just added Friday, Saturday and Sunday lunch service.

    The quest for the perfect beer ends at this Highlands newcomer housed in a former church. Complete with religious objets d'art and a gastro-pub menu, its beers come from around the world. Read more

    Easily one of the best burgers in Louisville. Also, the beer cheese and scotch quail eggs are awesome. That's not to mention the fantastic beer selection

    Parents beware, you can't bring your kids here. Wish we knew beforehand. Honestly the first place I've ever been to or heard of that doesn't allow kids to enter their restaurant.

    Excellent beer list, Top Five burger, dutch style fries, unreal ambience. Beware friends, I won't shut up about the burger for a while.

    Excellent selection of beers - especially Scandinavian. Also, get the Brussels sprouts without hesitation.

    And The Lord said, "Let there be beer! Let there be beer, served on Sundays, and in a old renovated church for the Clapper family to drink it in!" And so it was. - Michael 69:69

    There is a no table service. So grab a menu at the bar, take a seat wherever you like. When you've decided on the beverage & food of your choice, place your order with the barkeep.

    Beware: The pickled pepper may be the spiciest thing I've ever eaten. And I'm Indian, so I eat a lot of spicy crap.
