    The warm brie salad is as classic as the setting itself. Delicious!

    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.

    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]

    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

    "No matter how many times we eat at this local institution, we can't get enough of the speakeasy vibe, or the old black-and-white photographs on the walls, or the shrimp and grits, or..."

    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.
