Markers mark hit the mark!
By far the most perfectly cooked filet that I have had in my life! Presentation was excellent w both veggies and potato sticks. We were impressed. Can you do it again. .?

Excellent for Maker's Mark Fans!
Dropped in for dinner and drinks. If you like Bourbon, you HAVE to stop by. Excellent apps, meals and drinks. Service was excellent and the mood was great! I will definitely return and recommend to all my friends.

Great Bday Dinner
Had my friend's birthday dinner here. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service was great. I recommend ordering the shrimp and grits - it is phenomenal!

Perfect Sunday sidewalk dinner
After an afternoon with the Dalai Lame my wife and I took our mid-30's daughter and husband for Sunday dinner. We had tired of bar food and beer and wanted some good bourbon and a great steak.From the Bourbon flights (Proof of age & Low Rye) to the Apricot Upside Down Cake dessert the meal was perfect. Not inexpensive but perfectly prepared filets (two 5 oz. and an 8 oz) and the Swordfish Steak were as good as any we've ever had. Presentation was clean and striking while the service was impeccable. While the inside is elegant and refined we chose to sit outside and enjoy the early summer evening and the foot traffic on 4th St. Live.

We make it a point to stop
We make it a point to stop at Maker's Mark whenever we're in Louisville and it never gets old. From the bar to the food it's great.

Father's Day brunch
We had a lovely time eating brunch here. I would try it again for another meal. We dinned al fresco, it was a very leisurely experience.

4th St. Live Gem!
We had lunch outdoors on a Saturday and enjoyed the food, the people-watching, and our bourbon tasting. Server was attentive, w/o ever rushing us. My husband had chicken parm, and I had filet salad with bourbon ginger dressing. Yummy!
After lunch we tried a bourbon flight. Server was very knowledgeable and had good recommendations. Also, ask for the Urban Bourbon Trial passport if you don't already have it.
Restaurant is right in 4th St. Live district, so there's traffic going by. At night you'd be able to hear whatever band is playing. During the day, we heard music from the Irish pub across the street, but still conversed with no problem and w/o feeling that others overheard us. Restaurant's inside areas are posh and elegant.

Great but not Perfect
We were entertaining clients that were in town for the ICUEE conference. We chose Makers Mark due to our previous experience there the last time we entertained clients in 2011. Everything was great, the service, the food, atmosphere, etc... However, we had 2 in our party that ordered their first round of specialty beers that were on tap. When the second round came to order, MM were out of the one and then were told their second choice was out as well. The waiter explained that the delivery truck did not make it earlier in the day. All in all, everything else was great, our clients enjoyed the evening with us at the Makers Mark. We will definitely come back.

Delicious and Special
Great steak! Excellent walking distance from hotel in downtown Louisville, KY. Nice restaurant to get away from the much younger crowd who rather be in fast food places. If you like bourbon, you need to see the selection they have. Drink prices were comparable to other businesses. Food price is a little higher than other nearby restaurants but the steak was delicious and tender. A great place for a quite dinner before you visit the nearby hotspots.

Just what we were looking for.
We were looking for a girls night out. We live north of Indianapolis so our first inclination was to spend the night in Indy and act like tourists. No hotels were available, much to our dismay. After collaborating with the girls, we decided to travel to Louisville, figured we would have no trouble filling the two hour car ride with conversation. Boy were we pleased. The atmosphere was delightful. Entrees were delectable. And the drinks, just Devine. We all stepped out of our comfort zone to try the Bourbon. Pleasantly surprised by the specialties, they made great sippers and went very well with dinner. Absolutely, we will make the trip back.
