The food was a little pricey, but very, very good. We had a group of 12 and everyone liked their dish. The service was exemplary. Would highly recommend.

Good food, friendly servers

Let me start by saying, our first server (John) was amazing. He was very busy but always made sure we knew he was aware we were there. The rest was subpar. We were there to watch the NFL playoffs and the manager refused to put one of the TVs on the game even though they are a "sports bar" with over 20 TVs. I understand that some of the customers were already watching a couple of basketball games, but there were two TVs within a foot of each other with the exact same game on. Instead of politely asking the gentlemen in front of those two TVs if it was okay to change only one of them (which they nicely agreed to do when we asked because they actually wanted to watch the game as well) the manager gave us attitude while saying it was impossible. Once we asked the gentlemen if it was okay, we nicely asked the manager if he would change it since they agreed. He still had attitude with us and ignored us the rest of the visit even though we had an issue with a wrong order from the second server (it was shift change). I have been in the service industry for a long time and I understand that there are days where you're overwhelmed but there was never a point where he tried to apologize for the misunderstanding or even let us thank him for changing the channel.

Food was very good, portions were large, but given how dead the restaurant was, the service took too long.

Cobb salad was terrific and big! Staff seems like they're just kinda hangin out for fun, not all there to help patrons. Overall fine. Salad was good.

I loved the environment and atmosphere of this restaurant It is Located in the heart of downtown louisville, and is easy to maneuver to other locations if you want to enjoy a nice walk after eating, or the night life. it has a very comfortable sports feel, with T.V's all throughout the place. There are extra rooms that can be reserved for party's or large groups. The service there was AMAZING as everyone was very helpful and friendly. The food was very tasteful and served hot in a timely manner. This restaurant is kid friendly as well. I would recommend this restaurant to any and everyone.

We followed up here for a late night snack after our local basketball game. The place was not over crowded, but service was extremely slow and lacked personal attention. Drinks were what we expected and a large variety. Food was good, but wings had entirely too much dry rub.

The only good thing is they take reservations. The food was fair at best. We had an eight top and the server didn't know what was on the menu or what was on tap.

Hostess was rude. Left us standing there without even acknowledgeing they we were waiting. Waitress was very slow on responding to our request for condiments. Table was reserved and made available to us on time.

just a quick Thanks to Andrew for his great service. There many hours for Superbowl
Really glad we got his table.
Some folks I noted were rude; and no-one deserves that..I think they were upset about the GAME!
anyway, he handled things very well and worked thru all the game breaks...Great server. and Pretty good BAR food, generous sandwiches and nachos...good specials...
Enjoyed the visit to Louisville, would go back there again!
