Food was excellent!!! Service was awful , our waitress was non existent.
The manager had to bring our drinks or stuff we needed.
We had to wait forever when she was asked to bring something.
very frustrating!

We had a reservation for a Saturday night and it wasn’t crowded. Seated promptly. Nick our server was awesome. He made me the best margaritas. We all ordered burgers and they were cooked perfectly and were amazing. Highly recommend the 80/20 burger on the pretzel bun. Best burger I’ve ever had. We sat upstairs and it was quite noisy. They might need some acoustic panels up there. All in all, a great night and highly recommend.

Basic food, for sure, but well made and tasty. If you're expecting more than burgers and stuff you'll be disappointed, but it is definitely worth going there.

Visited with a party of four for lunch and enjoyed the visit overall. Staff is well trained and able to handle a packed house with relative ease it seemed. I tried the shrimp scampi for the first time and was not overly impressed. Lacked taste. Pulled pork was good but relied too much on sauce for taste. Burger was fine. Best part of the meal was the Brussel sprouts with bacon. Mixed drinks and tip added up to close to $90 for lunch!

This was my family’s visit to Kaelin’s, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very busy as it was the Friday evening of Burger Week. Our server greeted us quickly and provided good service throughout the meal, apologizing for being so busy. My wife and I each had a 80/20 burger, hers with fries and mine with Brussels sprouts. The burgers were cooked perfectly to the requested MW, with tasty white cheddar cheese and bacon. The sprouts were delicious, as were the fries. My daughters had a fried chicken sandwich and a kids burger, both of which they enjoyed. I was somewhat disappointed that they were sold out of the Hi Wire MosaicIPA, but I understand that the keg turnover there is fast.

Date night with hubby! Great food - the burger was exceptional but you can’t argue when they’ve been doing it for years. We started off with fried green tomatoes and Brussels sprout appetizers - highly recommend the fried green tomatoes with the special sauce!! After a superb burger (just the right size for us as it was the $6 special for burger week) - topped off the evening with a scoop of the bourbon apple butter ice cream - yummy . Our first visit but won’t be the last 😊❤️

The burger "Hot and Hammie" had a great description, I was expecting spectacular burger. It turned to to be just ok. It tasted like any ole burger.... very disappointing. The brussel sprouts were tough, the stems could have been cut off a bit more. Our server was very nice and personable. The floors were vey slippery. We saw two people fall.

We had reservations and they had our table ready. Our server was so nice and very welcoming. Burgers were great. My husband ordered the special burger and ate every bite. People were everywhere but we really didn’t have to wait very long for our food. One of our favorite places to get a burger.

We enjoyed our visit to Kaelin’s.
It was Burger week, so the place was packed. The food was excellent.
We had the Caprese salad, wonderful.
My wife had the veggie burger and I had the special burger, both were excellent.
We will be back!!!

Tonight was an especially busy night because of Louisville Burger Week, and the staff was still incredibly prompt and polite and made sure we had a great time! My wife’s burger was a little undercooked, and they corrected the issue right away and made sure everything was perfect before we left. Will absolutely be dining again!! Great work to the kitchen and wait staff!!

We had a reservation for 7:45. It took us 30 minutes for our waiter to come and give us water. We didn’t get our appetizer until 9:15, and even then, it was cold. Safe to say I will not be returning.

If you decide to come to this fine establishment I highly suggest you make a reservation. Once we were seated our waiter was kind , knowledgeable. Atmosphere was laid back . The food I must say is good but they are a bit steep in prices. Other than that I’d highly recommend this place to grab a tasty burger and I nice beer.

First time visitor, and we got a nice table indoors in the back as the noise level was high at the end of lunch hour. Our server was new, and a bit slow, but nice enough when we got his attention. Fried chicken was OK, I don't love mashed potatoes with skins on. The gravy was tasty, and the cheese curds were good. We each tried a "boozy shake" and they were the highlight for me. I had the big Lebowski. I would go again and try something different.

Always delicious, really good fries, good variety of burgers and other options. And the chocolate ice cream is the best I know of anywhere. It tastes like it has butter in it. The cocktails are usually great too, and there's a decent sized patio so you can usually eat outside during nice weather.

I don’t even know where to begin, the food was amazing! If we lived in Louisville this would be on our list of favorite restaurants!

For starters we had Crispy Brussels Sprouts and Fried Cheese Curds. The Brussel Sprouts were incredible, the bacon jam delicious! The best part of the meal was the Ribeye Burger, all I have to say is if you don’t try this you’re missing out big time!!!

Service was great and the staff was amazing.

We made a reservation for 8 people for 7:15, but ended up arriving early. They had our table ready shortly after our arrival (still before our reservation!!) and we loved every minute of it from start to finish. The interior is so unique and the food was spectacular. Highly recommend!
