The food was amazing and we had 6 ppl with us so we got to taste a little bit of everything. The only downfall was the wait for the food, but that will not keep us from returning when we visit Louisville again.

The chef greeted our table & asked us about our meal.... she was VERY nice!
We were celebrating a birthday dinner and they were very accommodating to our requests.

Wow we were so disappointed. Beautiful atmosphere, I love the new theme. I was a customer of Encore so I was very familiar and suggested brunch to my family and I was really embarrassed. ALL OF OUR OARTY HAD FOOD ISSUES!! The worst being the Chef came out and asked us how we liked our bacon and everyone said crispy and the bacon came out barely done!!!! The waffles were so cold and spongy and the edges were hard, same with the French toast. My sausage were hard like they been microwaved but yet they were cold. For coffee refills the server collected cups from our table AND another table to refill them which to me was huge issue if they mixed the cups up?!?!? It’s freaking Covid going on, do y’all not have coffee pots. We were still charged full price even tho we sent the French toast and the waffles back and when they came out again ... still cold still not edible. So we just didn’t eat them. No sunsets apology except from the server. I can’t recommend until I’ve heard the food quality and service is better. Also why does the food come out on saucers? The eggs, the gas browns, sausage all came out on small plates? I want this to be so successful. The gentleman that came to our table and told us the story of the Jockeys seems very passionate but if the food quality and service ain’t on point people ain’t gon care about them jockeys. Aside from the food and service the place is beautiful and I live the high seating and the leather barstools.

The place was booked, which was great for them and happy to see a new restaurant doing well. However, they still have some kinks to work out because the service was very slow. The food was good; drinks were tasty and the prices were okay. It was great having live music again at a restaurant too! We will be back and hopefully, the kinks will be worked out and things get better!

This was our 1st time and BJL did not disappoint. The extra level of protection with the temp taking was awesome. I felt comfortable from start to finish. And the food...my goodness. I booked brunch for my Birthday 3/28 before leaving, called a few friends, and smiled the next day when I finished off my ribs. You must go and treat yourself, then go back and treat someone else!

The service at this restaurant was very disappointing. We entered at 7:45 and did not receive our entree until 10:30.
Our waitress came to the table numerous times stating they were working it. The chef came out walked the floor greeting people STILL no food. Then by 10pm the manager only wanted to offer us a cocktail for the delay. Do not eat here .

Excellent service! Be sure to ask Calvin Davis for a history lesson on Black Jockeys as well as the art hanging on the walls. Highly recommend. Food was great; the Chef even introduced herself.

Amazing restaurant! The food was so good, the ambiance is perfect. There’s a virtual fire place big enough to see from any seat, music playing, dim lighting. Very romantic and such an experience.
