  • "For a hotel, this is good food, great location, and excellent service."

  • "a wonderful experience with a menu that tempts you with every entre"

  • "Due to work/life balance, my hubby & I don't get to double date often with our close friends. Therefore, when we do, we look forward to the fellowship, good food & entertainment. Excited about going to the NE concert last Sun, we wanted to find affordable fine dining downtown. My hubby "heard" about Sway (still not knowing what to expect), I made reservations online Sat night for dinner Sun @ 5:15. While dining, our waitress Tia was phenomenal! She made great menu suggestions & provided first class service. The fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, mashed potatoes, & shrimp/grits are must haves (large portions). The comp biscuits & corn bread muffins were also nice adds. We will definitely be back."

  • "Everything you would want and more from the service staff. Truly made us feel like we were welcomed and at home while away from home. Our meals were prepared and served with class. Great experience in Louisville."

  • "We had an excellent dinner, stellar service at a reasonable rate.Very cean uncluttered restaurant. The ambiance is good and conversation is easily heard. A nice evening."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Definitely not your typical hotel fare. Food is excellent, fried green tomoto sandwich was the best! We had a group of 5 and everyone said their entree was prepared perfectly. Atmosphere is great for a business lunch or less formal gathering."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "There were five of us and everyone loved the food they ordered. It was a tad noisy, but that is our only complaint. Bring back the checken fried steak!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Sway has a nice intimate setting for being in a hotel lobby, and has a nice open air bar on one side that opens up to 4th Street. The food was decent but not overwhelmingly so. We had deviled eggs that were good but I make them good as well. We then had some sort of flat-bread with lettuce on top that I would not eat again. I had the cornbread salad pre-dinner which was phenomenal with some sort of spicy dressing. It was the highlight of my meal. I had shrimp and grits which were edible, my husband had the steak which was also okay. The overall price of 110.00 was not worth the cornbread salad. Service was great and their mini biscuits and corn bread with sweet butter were very yummy.....just none of it was worth the price."

  • "Fried chicken is out of this world. Bar was full and was a great time."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Overall, a wonderful dining experience. Portion sizes a bit small for the going menu rates."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Sway is one of the links in the chain of my wife and I favorite 4th street restaurants. The dishes are best described as southern comfort food with an attitude. This last visit I had Southern Fried Chicken (4 meaty pieces) that comes with Creamy mashed potatoes, Southern greens and natural gravy. To round out and compliment this dish, I paired it with a glass of Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale on tap as of April 2014. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Food was good, but service was slower than expected. Place was not crowded, and should have been right on top of things. Probably would try again though."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I decided to try Sway after having their fried green tomatoes at "Taste of 502". We had the choice of the dining room or the open area patio near the bar. Since Saturday night was so pleasant, and the St. Patty's day festivities were in full swing, we decided to dine in the patio area. We could see everyone walking back and forth from Fourth Street. Even with the all the people outside, and the college games on TV inside, we still had an intimate dinner. The meal was great including the drinks; I had the raspberry lemonade drop; I highly recommend it. The staff was very nice and attentive as well. We had a very enjoyable time; will come again."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My significant other and myself visited Sway the other night for a date. We had talked for some time about visiting Sway after trying their "Shrimp and Grits" and the taste of Louisville festival several months back, a dish that was voted as the best of the evening at the festival. Of course, we both ordered the "Shrimp and Grits" and were both very pleased with our meal. I had a "I'll Have Another Tea" cocktail myself and was very pleased with it and would highly recommend it. Overall our trip to Sway made for a wonderful dining experience and I certainly would suggest it to friends and plan on going back in the future myself."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The food was OK. The short ribs had a huge band of fat in it and tasted like pot roast. The fried chicken was good, but slightly over cooked. The Pecan bars were grainy. Service was slow, and the server appeared bored and was not very familiar with the menu. We were told that our food was taking so long because there were 2 tables ahead of us. One time she some over our head to the bartender behind us. We should have suspected, as it was prime time on Friday night and only 5 takes in the restaurant were being used. We will not return"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We ordered off the restaurant week menu and were pleased with our meal overall. We both ordered the fried green tomatoes and deviled egg apps. The tomatoes were wonderful! The eggs were good but not anything special. My girlfriend had the veggie pot pie for her entree which she said she enjoyed. I had the short rib and mashed potatoes. It was very good but missing that little something that makes Southern food comfort food. Lastly, we each had the dessert sampler. I had the pecan slices and spice cakes and she had the tagalong ice cream, according to our preferences. Everything was delicious. Overall we were pleased with our meal though it wasn't outstanding. I would dine here again to try the fried chicken which is supposed best in town."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Took my brother here as he was visiting from out of town. The food was absolutely fantastic!! The fact that the price was very reasonable and the portions huge made it even more perfect. My brother said next time he's in town, he's bringing his wife. I'm taking my daughter for her 20th birthday celebration!!!"

  • "A nice place for a quiet lunch with clients downtown."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "For Valentine's Day, I made reservations for he and I to dine at Sway. The familiar dining options with the upscale vibe allowed my date to comfortable and enjoy our date. Our appetizers and entree were exactly what we expected,hot and delicious. The options for dessert reflected the southern charm of the restaurant and was equally delicious. Sway is one of my favorite local gems."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Not bad.... The food was pretty good, the wait staff helpful."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Solid introduction to the foodie possibilities in Louisville and a nice surprise for what someone would dismiss as a hotel food. Fried chicken was perfectly cooked and tasty."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Had a great birthday luncheon for 6. Sway was very accommodating, the food was good and atmosphere was perfect for the occasion"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "My husband met me downtown for lunch. The firm I work for has frequented the restaurant a few times for group outings. Since the food was so good, I wanted him to try it. We were seated right away. The waitress came right away and greeted us and took our drink order; chatted again then took our food order. Prior to our meal, the waitress brought biscuits and cornbread and chatted some more. Our food arrived - fried chicken was delicious, the Farmers plate was awesome. The restaurant was not busy, our waitress was at our table beyond what was reasonable. She was pleasant but came between our time to talk between ourselves while enjoying lunch. We will definitely be back, the food and atmosphere is very nice."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Food and service were excellent. Went on week night, our first visit to Sway, will definitely be back"
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "We made reservations here for our 3rd wedding anniversary. It was quite and the service was wonderful. We really enjoyed our dinner and the time spent at Sway. We will be back!! Thank you for the great memeries on our wedding anniversary."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Every dish at Sway is delicious... The fried chicken, the salads, the sandwiches, the sides. The staff is extremely accomodating, courteous, and efficient. A wonderful place to dine when downtown."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Enjoyed getting such good service; a good variety of delicious food options; and the fact that it was handicap accessible"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Sway came recommended to my boyfriend and my friends. In Louisville, there are many places to eat and there is a stigma with a restaurant attached to a hotel much less a chain. Sway blew everything out of the water with their cornbread and sweet tea. They had us at "honey butter". The table opted for the fried chicken and the gravy accompanying it stole the show. I even had leftovers to take home because I also had fried green tomatoes with spicy sauce and their cornbread salad. I have already recommended this to my coworkers and looking forward to the next big even (perhaps birthday) to spend at Sway! Thank you!"
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "Ambiance was surprisingly pleasant for a hotel restaurant. Entry was awkward, though: we used the street doors, which brought us to the bar, with no host/ess and no one asking if we need help. Vegetarian options were limited, and our server was subtle with her condescension when we mentioned we were vegetarian and thus looking for plates without, as she completed our phrase, "without protein?". Food was OK but not great considering the price and publicity."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "I made reservations at Sway for my sibling and me. We arrived, looked around for a hostess/greeting stand, we even walked around into the dining room and saw nothing. No one greeted us and there was not even a hint of a hostess stand. I was not sure what was the point of making reservations. So, we sat at an open table in the bar. A male, who I think was a bartender, came over and asked our drink orders. We hadn't decided yet so we asked for water. He returned with the water, setting them down on the table, then immediately leaving without giving us a chance to order, saying he'd be right back. We waited 15 minutes for him to "be right back". He never came back to the table. We left and went elsewhere and ate."

  • "Just an average dinner.. Most dishes were bland.. Service was good but meal was a disappointment overall. When you factor in cost, it becomes much less attractive.. We would not revisit unless we had special pricing."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Was in Louisville for Anniversary getaway. Made reservations at Sway since it was in the Hyatt which we were staying. Great ambiance. The cool part was that there were appetizers and entree items that were local specials. Very good food and service. Would recommend to anyone. Prices were very reasonable. Dress code was casual."

  • "This was our 1st time here and we really enjoyed the food. The Shrimp and Grits was amazing!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, and caramel cake are all divine. Go here. Spread the word. It's really delicious."

  • "Perfect for lunch with the girls. Food very good, but don't expect ambience. Tablecloths and napkins nice but rest very modern."

  • "My birthday was a night to remember. The food, drinks and service was great. Loved the atmosphere."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "Lunch time, with the large windows opened up to the hustle and bustle of the lunchtime-crowded strip of Fourth Street, provided a great backdrop to the meal..."
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "My best friend and I went to Sway for breakfast on a recent Saturday. Service was efficient and just the right amount of attentive. My friend's waffle was as pretty as a picture and tasted even better, she said. I had the Bourbon peach pecan french toast and it was perfect. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "Generally i don't expect much from hotel restaurants. After reading the reviews on Open Table, I decided to give it a try. The food was great and I'm a Southern gal. I had the fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. The chicken came with some of the best mashed potatoes I've eaten. I will definitely return next time I'm in Louisville."
    Dined on 8/16/2013
  • "We had been wanting to try this place for a while and when we finally did, we were not disappointed. I had the country fried steak and my husband had the fried chicken. Mine was very good as were the mashed potatoes and green beans. We were advised that the fried chicken would take 22 minutes to cook, but the wait was worth it. It was very good as were his greens, which he said were the best he'd ever had. We would like to come back to try the breakfast and lunch menu."
