    Wonderful as always! Staff makes it a pleasure as they work together as a team. Most places it is the Server against the world not here you have a primary Server and but the others help out as well.

    This elevated honky tonk is the place for bourbon in Louisville, where craft cocktails are in short supply. Silver Dollar changed that.

    Amazing selection of whiskey by the glass. Beer pours are a bit short, but all is forgiven because they have gizzards.

    I got a drink called the hillbilly hellraiser. They should change the name to the jackass snowcone. Never had a drink that bad before. But I love this place.

    Honoring the "'Bakersfield Sound,' ... great juke joints and the spirited people who inhabited them" has earned The Silver Dollar much praise, both for whiskey and for food. [Eater 18 Member]

    This East End honky-tonk, "centered around Bakersfield Sound music and Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey," was named one of the top 10 whiskey bars in America by GQ. It's also a hot spot for brunch.

    Those Moscow Mules are the bomb. They should be called Mind-Melting Moscow Mules. Fried okra is very decent, and they have an awesome collection of honky-tonk for the turntable. Good times.

    The Chicken & Waffles were a major disappointment. Flavorless chicken & half a waffle for $18. Order something else - there's plenty of good things on the menu but this isn't it.
