This was first visit at Dish,
This was first visit at Dish, and wow! What a great surprise. The food was excellent, fresh crisp salads and the steak and potato dish was amazing, the bourbon sauce on delicious filets was expertly prepared! Service could not be better,Shelby was so awesome. Price was very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food! Has a casual feel with an upscale menu. Dish was DelIcious!

Great spot for Easter!
We had a wonderful Easter Brunch at Dish on Market. Our party of 6 was seated immediately and they were very accomodating with my elderly mother and moved us downstairs so she would not have to climb the stairs. The service was good but the food was excellent. I will definitely return here again.

Food was very good--service
Food was very good--service was even better. They sat us upstairs--not much to look at. Next time I will request a downstairs table; much better ambience. Good selection on the menu!

Down home in Downtown Louisville
In one short weekend, Dish became my go-to place for delicious, down home food in downtown Louisville. Very reasonably priced and flexible on substitutions. I had fried chicken on my first visit and it was delectable. I asked for a coleslaw instead of green beans and it was the best cole slaw I ever had. There must have been a touch of mustard in it.
Had lunch there a couple of days later (they are famous for their Hot Brown), but I had the fish and chips, another winner.
Their sweet potato fries are great, too, and the bar knows what it is doing.

My husband and I met here
My husband and I met here for dinner before the recent Fleetwood Mac concert at the KFC Yum Center. Service was attentive but not intrusive. My husband ordered the Falls City kissed fish, and he reported that it tasted as good as it looked. I ordered the Hot Brown and it was also as tasty as it was attractive. The bar appeared to be well-stocked, although we stuck with Coke products that evening. I'd definitely go back!

Where to sit?
We all had great meals. Only concern was they did not have our reservation when we arrived and a party of 30 was there for a baby shower and their reservation had been lost! Place was packed so not a good situation. Service and food were stellar however.

Mothers Day Brunch
Brought my wife, children and mother and father for a Mothers Day brunch. Food and service was excellent. The waitress even entertained my children and made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a great brunch!

Quick Service Friendly Staff
We wanted a good Burgher and found it at Dish and that's what we received. Its more like a neighborhood place, not fancy or pretentious. The Manager and Staff were great. The food came quickly and was prepared exactly as we requested. In a age where foodies search out fine dining and unusual dishes, Dish on Market goes back in time, offers comfort food with great service and a friendly staff.

THE LAST TIME I WAS AT THIS LOCATION WAS 20 YEARS AGO WHEN IT WAS THE DELTA. IT IS THE PERFECT LOCATION IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE CENTER OF THE ARTS. THE FOOD WAS GOOD,INEXPENSIVE AND THE ATMOSPHERE GREAT.
WE WILL DEFINATELY GO BACK.

Celebrated a friend's birthday w / a group of 7 & had excellent service. Everyone really enjoyed their food & the menu is extensive & very Louisville-based. A friend from out of town couldn't decide what to get b/c of all the great options!
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, price, and service
We made a reservation for a group of 10 a few days in advance and arrived with 14. Staff accommodated the larger than expected group nicely. Food was great: selection and price range are fantastic for a casual dining experience. Fried chicken is a must-try (be prepared for HUGE portions). We came back for lunch a few days later, and omelettes were also great.

You can't go wrong with Dish.
You can't go wrong with Dish. They have comfort food down. I had their burger and fries and venture to say it is one of the best burgers in town. On the way out I was enticed by the cookies. I stopped to order one and the manager inquired how our meal was and gave me the cookie for no charge. Great food and atmosphere.

We decided to try after reading
We decided to try after reading other reviews and were not disappointed! Had an early dinner before a show at the Brown and it was fast service and good food. I really loved the Reuben egg roll appetizers, just wished there were more if them! My husband and I both had the fried chicken and it was hot, crispy, and perfectly seasoned. Others had the hot brown and burgers and no one was complaining. :)
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a great spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch at a very reasonable price in downtown Louisville. Try the cheese grits or crab cakes benedict!

Good food, good restaurant
The food was very good and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The servers were very busy and it took a little longer than it should have to get a drink, but overall was very good experience. I would go back, but perhaps not on a concert night.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thnx to OpenTable, beat the Eagles pre-concert crowd and walked right in. Started with Tobacco and Whiskey, (onion straws), that were very typical, but made more unique with the bourbon sauce on the side. We ordered Falls City Fish and Chips and the Germantown Po Boy. Both were excellent. Service by Amanda was top notch, and did I mention that they have over 60 types of bourbon...including half shots so you can try some new things. I'm definitely heading back to try one of the burgers next time!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Burger and Bourbon!
This is a great local restaurant that makes an excellent burger and a great bourbon selection. It is just a fun bar with locals and tourists alike - you can't go wrong with the food or the fun here.

Interesting brunch menu and
Interesting brunch menu and yummy food. Live music a nice touch. Glad we made reservations since there was a long wait time, we were seated immediately.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a vey enjoyable experience for a large group with children. The food was excellent and I can't give enough praise for the service, it was excellent. thank you for a very enjoyable time.

First Time Diners
There was 6 of us and it is always up to me to decide where we are going to dine, so I decided on Dish on Market. None of us had even been there before. Even though one of us had to have her steak recooked 3 times, we were very happy with the food and the service. Good chance we will return.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ejoyable pre-show dinner
We had a nice time dining before a concert at nearby YUM Center. Our food was very good and our server, even though he had only been there for a week, handled us like we were the only folks in the place (as he did the other tables he had). Very nice experience.

Fun with friends
We were at DISH for Sunday brunch - a first time for the two couples at this restaurant. My husband enjoyed the brunch buffet - freshly made egg white omelet AND great fried chicken. I asked for my Eggs Benedict without the country ham and was happy to hear that they could substitute bacon or regular ham and appreciated our server making the suggestion. Loved the live music and left as the artist was playing "Black Bird" - one of my favorite Beatles' songs! Because this was our first time enjoying the company of our two friends, I had asked for a quiet table in a corner for better conversation. We were seated in a booth on the first floor right in the middle of the bar scene, so I should have asked for a move to a different spot.

Great find while traveling
We spent a Saturday in downtown and enjoyed lunch so much we came back for dinner. The food and atmosphere were both what we seek when visiting restaurants when away from home. The burgers and sandwiches are quite notable. The restaurant is within easy walking distance from any downtown hotel.
Both visits we ate at a table in the bar area, so the noise level we report may not be reflective of the entire restaurant.

Dish About Dish
We entertained out of town guests with a trip to Dish On Main. Our first visit to this restaurant was only a week before. Superb food. Servers went the extra mile both times to ensure a great meal. Definitely on my list for a "regular" destination from now on.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was simple, but excellent.
Food was simple, but excellent. Burgers are fantastic. I will definitely return to visit. Service was attentive, but crowd was sparse for a Monday night.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch is good. Bacon was yummy and they did have some of the best sausage gravy I've had in a while.
The food was good but I wouldn't say over the top.
My nephew and Brother ordered off the menu. They ordered the bourbon bread pudding French toast; which was very good.
I do think for the price they should have gotten a couple more slices.
It does feel a little crowded in the place.
We ate lunch here too and the burgers were really really good!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
They treat you right!
We love The Dish on Market! We come to town with a convention a few times a year, and this has become our favorite place for lunch. It's not the perfect, quiet place to get a group together to talk. However, the way they bend over backwards to make sure you are happy and have everything you need is worth a little noise.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Change of Pace
Dish on Market offered a lovely alternative to the many chain restaurants and bar fare that appear to be so prevalent. The menu had a good selection of inviting meals. The food was fresh and good and the service was outstanding. Definitely a place to return to.

Excellent food and service
Excellent food and service at very reasonable prices

Tried it while we were in town...
My girlfriend and I came to Louisville for a birthday weekend bash. We wanted some local flavor and Dish came highly recommended. We were able to book reservations on short notice. When we arrived, the front side (bar dining area) was sparsely filled, so we were seated in a quiet booth near the back. They have a decent beer/wine list, reasonable prices, and a wide selection of food. She got fried chicken, which is made to order so it takes a little while. I got a porterhouse. Her chicken was great! My steak was just okay. Our server was really attentive and courteous. We had a nice meal with some drinks and it didn't break the bank.
We'll be sure to stop by next time we're in town.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first trip to Dish. We will be back soon. There were several items on the menu that looked very good. We had four people in our party and we each had something different and all four dinners were great.

Chicken and Waffles for a brunch
great service, cozy setting and tasty food, I enjoyed a chicken and waffles dish that wonderfully prepared and spiced, really great for a lazy sunday brunch
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Glad we made the choice!
This was my first time at this restaurant. It surely didn't disappoint. The service was a little slow but the food was great! They really don't have the seating for large groups but for smaller groups and couples is perfect.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first visit to Dish. The atmosphere was a little more casual than I was expecting. The menu and the food made up for that! I had to laugh when I saw Crabby Patties as an appetizer:) There were six in our party, we had everything from chicken & waffles to filet. Each one thought their dinner was absolutely delicious. My steak was cook just right for me, wonderful flavor!
I would definitely recommend Dish on Market. A wide variety on the menu makes it perfect for groups, everyone should find something they will love.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are so glad we went off the beaten path a little and found this restaurant! My husband wanted to try out some bourbons and the staff was very knowledgeable and courteous! Food was great too! Definitely recommend!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was very cozy, and the staff was very punctual and exciting. The food was served quickly and was delicious. The prices were moderate, but worth the price. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone especially for the downtown atmosphere.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had brunch on a Sunday before
Had brunch on a Sunday before a large event downtown. Glad we made reservations. Dish was busy, and for good reason. It had a good breakfast buffet, omelet stations, and all in all good food. The fried chicken was amazing!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just might be the best dining experience ever. I will definitely go back when I return to Louisville.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
warm and cozy
We had reservations for this past Saturday night. What a great night. It was just freezing and very windy, so it was wonderful just to walk through the front door. They had a very nice selection of wine. My boyfriend ordered the steak and I had the salmon; both were delicious. The service was great too;very attentive. This is just the best place to catch a good meal right before a show. We finished our meal an hour before the show, but just stayed and chatted our time away. Very nice experience.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Dish provides a great opportunity to try some local comfort foods like fried chicken and Kentucky Hot Brown. Plates and food stayed hot thorough entire meal! Brownie dessert worth skipping. Very reasonable prices and a good value.
