This place was fantastic! The drinks were on point! The apps we chose were the beer cheese and Brussels and both were amazing! My wife and I split the 80/20 burger and 1/2 fried chicken and both exceeded expectations! Super crispy and full flavor chicken with nice hearty mash potatoes and the burger was juicy and hit the spot perfectly! Definitely not a health food restaurant but for a cheat night, I can’t think of a better spot! I will be back

My experience at this restaurant was amazing. I absolutely loved the fried chicken! The gravy was great, the biscuit was awesome, and I will be thinking about the brussel sprouts for a long time! We will definitely be back soon.

I had the open faced roast beef and it was amazing! Our server was really nice, funny and very efficient. We didn’t have to request anything. Our drinks would be half empty and he was asking if we were ready for more. Big pet peeve of ours at restaurants so we were very appreciative of the attentive service.

We ate here for the first time the beginning of September with family and I loved it so much I just had lunch there with girlfriends. It might become our new go-to place. I've had the cheeseburger and the Benedictine BLT and both were delicious, along with the brussel sprouts, grits and french fries. Love it all - but that BLT is still on my mind!! ♥

We had reservations for dinner to celebrate an anniversary. We were able to sit out on the front deck due to the warm fall weather. It was delightful! We had drinks and appetizers which were scrumptious. Dinner was excellent as well. Our waiter was very attentive, took our picture, and was very personable. It was a lovely evening!

The food was great, service as well. The noise level was a little too high to carry on a casual conversation however. I would recommend to others as well as will be returning.

I had been wanting to try this place for quite awhile and was absolutely blown away by our experience. All six of us absolutely raved about our dinners and the restaurant looks amazing. I also had a Kelly kapouchki adult Capri sun drink and it was tart and delicious. We plan to becone regulars.

We ate outside on the patio - had wonderful service and our kids in from California said it was the best meal they'd had in Louisville. The burgers were to die for - and my husband, who is a meatloaf afficiando, said it was among the best he'd ever had. After dinner - we shared a strawberry malt which was also delicious. We will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the fact that there was such a great patio in this day of Covid is certainly a big plus.

Food was excellent, but the staff wasn't very friendly. I understand the stress of COVID, but a server spilled a drink by our table coming out of the back area and my dad was helping her clean it up, even though the server tripped over the doorway area. Another server stepped over the server and around my dad, never offering to bring a mop or telling my dad to stop and he'd help the server. My dad was using his own napkin to help her. The server who spilled the drink never thanked him, the area was super sticky and still wet by our table, and what made things worse was that it was at the base of the stairwell that leads to the second floor eating space. We had to tell customers coming down the step to not slip since they wouldn't use a mop to clean it up or even out out a "wet floor" sign. A customer got to the bottom of the stairs and the same server who stepped over his co-worker cleaning the floor on her hands and knees, about took that customer out while walking out of the back area and nearly wiped out on the wet floor. We could never find our server for refills after he brought the food because he was mainly working the 2nd floor. Great food, but service could be better.

We had the BEST time at Kaelin’s. Burgers were excellent. Fries are delicious. I wanted all the sides but chose blue cheese slaw. My bad. Not a fan of any blue cheese slaw so I wouldn’t order it again but suspect it was good. We even got ice cream. Wide range of flavors. Service was great. Everyone was so nice and truly appreciate the business. Can’t wait to go back. BTW, tables are spaced far apart.

It was our first dinner date at Kaelin’s and will not be our last. We enjoyed the fried green tomato appetizer, a burger and the patti melt and they all were very good. We topped it off with dessert from the Malt shop. The interior is beautiful but the noise level is a little high up stairs. Other than that we loved it!

Fried Chicken is excellent, the biscuits were some of the best my wife and I have ever had they are not traditional, but very close to scones and absolutely delicious! Very good Martinis also!
