My family was in town for the weekend. We came across this gem. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The decor was comfortable and the attached I’ve cream shop was a bit with the kids. If you are in the Louisville area, don’t miss this place!

The food was not as good as I was hoping for. The restaurant itself was very neat, clean and you really wanted to enjoy your experience there, the food just did not live up to expectations.

Who says you can only get a good burger at a burger place? Everything was fantastic! The fried green tomatoes and Brussel sprouts were absolutely delicious! Fried cod sandwich would melt in your mouth. Great wait staff. Definitely recommend and will definitely return.

This was our first time here. My wife and I both ordered different hamburgers. They were quite delicious and big, and messy! We both loved the very crispy french fries! We topped off with two scoops of ice cream, which were great. Service was very attentive. Cleanliness and social distancing were great. All of the staff were masked up. I highly recommend.

I was able to get a last minute reservation @80/20 for Valentine's Day and I was very happy about it. Parking is located behind the restaurant with plenty of spaces. COVID precautions are in full effect and staff follows accordingly. There is plenty of seating downstairs as well as an additional area upstairs. They also have an outdoor area for warmer months. They had a special menu for Valentine's Day, my dear friend and I opted to go rogue and both ordered the ribeye burger and hot wings as our appetizer. For tasty beverages I ordered the blushing mule. It had grapefruit in it which was delicious. Our wings came out first and boy were they delicious. We got the Buffalo hot, perfect amount of spice, crunch, and flavor. The burgers were next, both cooked a perfect medium. The egg on top made it just perfect. Both onion rings and fries were our sides for the burgers, crispy and perfect. For dessert we split a scoop of there homemade red velvet ice cream. It was smooth, had pieces of cake and was sweetened just right. Overall, great experience, everything was tasty! I will definitely be back!

First time at Kaelins. Our service was excellent, appreciated the decent red wines on the menu and good selection of beer for my partner.
I had the short rib dinner, great flavor, maybe a bit dry and could have had a few more Brussels sprouts. Flavour was very good though. Partner had the patty melt and thought it was good other than a bit over cooked. Fries were good.
Would come back, good value.

This was our first visit to Kaelin's - we wen't for our Valentine's date. The service was good, the brussel sprouts were excellent and we enjoyed the diverse crowd. We talked to Bill, one of the owners and he gave us some great insights on how they transformed from a neighborhood pub/burger joint into a nice gastro pub. Definitely plan to come back in the future.
