Amazing atmosphere, the food was delicious, drinks were perfect and the band was awesome. Great energy and vibe. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and will be back.
Wonderful restaurant. Incredible theme. The food was fantastic
The atmosphere was great and the food and service was even better. There was a live band there that played oldies but goodies. I loved it.
Food was absolutely amazing. Drink choices were great. Did have to wait a while for the food, but that was completely fine once we got the food, whic as I said was amazing! The atmosphere in the restaurant was top notch. The house band did a great job.
Very good portion sizes. There could have been more entrees offered. A little too cold in the lounge. Great service & great music from the band! We will return!
Spent NYE…bringing in 2022 in this fabulous lounge. My sister and best friend from Seattle brought in the new year at the best spot in all of Louisville. Great food, drinks, music and service. Will most definitely return soon
The food & drink was good, but pricey. I spent over a $100 for 4 drinks, an order of wings and 2 eggs rolls, which was cut in half.
Great atmosphere. Good Food. Love going there. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time. I will be there every time that band with Tony Fish plays. They were excellent. The service was extremely attentive and the food was delicious. Looking forward to coming again.
Just a fun experience. Relaxed atmosphere with the most pleasant staff. The food is the highlight...great flavor and presentation!
Got the catfish and fries and it was really good. The drinks are great and named after black jockeys. I got the one w/ last name Lewis. Also have a vast selection of wines. The inside is adorable, great for a date or quaint celebratory dinner. They do have a larger room for bigger parties. Not too expensive and service was exceptional. Very attentive.
Great place for a date night! Service was great! My server was very friendly and attentive. Food was good. Only critique is wings were too saucy and would have liked more variety in menu. I will definitely recommend to my friends!
Music was too loud to hear conversation.
The Band was outstanding! The service was great, the staff was helpful and courteous. I ordered the Salmon, my wife had the Jerk Chicken. Both meals pretty good. I'll definitely go back.
Awesome place for an outing! We went on a whim to kill time but what a pleasant surprise. I wish we would’ve stayed the whole night. The food, drinks and music was great. And we saw a live jazz/funk band. Definitely worth every penny!
I booked a reservation on open table for 11pm. I called and asked the restaurant what time they closed and they said 12pm. When I arrived I was immediately told that “this is the bands last song”. I was not greeted. I was not asked my purpose for being there. I told the (what I assume to be) manger, that I had a reservation for 11. I was told that there was no way that I could have a reservation for the restaurant at this time. I even attempted to show him the open table reservation and he just continued to condescend and brush me out the door. Never once received an apology for the inconvenience. I was very unhappy with the way I was treated and don’t ever plan on returning.
Conveniently located across from the Louisville Palace—great choice for dining before an event.
Cocktail was wonderful but very expensive. Catfish dinner was good but average. My friend loved the salmon. Entrees reasonably priced.
Service was excellent.
Will go back.
Great vibe and the Management was very welcoming. The food (salmon) was delicious! We went for amateur comedy night (Wednesday) and it was great that this establishment provided opportunities for up and coming comedians to display their talent. Beautiful people and good music. Our server was polite and energetic however you could tell that this may have been an introduction to her employment as a server. Overall a great experience and I look forward to going back again.
The chicken is over cooked and/or the grease needs to be changed. The fish dinner is over priced for the quantity. The drink was just ok. I’d go back but only to listen to live music and have some water or take shots. The ambiance and diversity is lovely.
My husband and I ate here last night, and I must say, if you’re going to a show at Louisville Palace, this place is super convenient. The staff are so, so nice. The restaurant is clean and the decor is cool. They had a live jazz band and they were great. This is a place you can go to for a casual night out or dressy night out.
Downside was slow service. It took 30 minutes to get a drink. Food was served pretty quickly after we ordered it. It was good, but the portions are small.
Extremely slow service., the food wasn’t that great. Very bland. Prices was fair. They ran out of tap beer and champagne. The featured drink was not available either. This will be a one and done for us.
Great atmosphere. Kitchen, servers and bar needs a whole restructuring. Has potential to be a great place to gather with friends.
Just can't get it pulled together, there is always an issue with something
Worse service I’ve ever experienced.
I had dinner on a night when there was great live music. The atmosphere was great. The service was a little slow. The bar was out of a few things. However, the manager apologized and took care of my table. I hope this spot is around for awhile. It's a great place to wine, dine, and dance.
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Black Jockeys Lounge. The food was so very good. I highly recommend the egg rolls and the catfish.
The atmosphere was absolutely stunning and the live band was amazing! Great time for a date night out and we will be back soon.
Beautiful ambiance with outstanding service!
We loved it all!!!
Wonderful meal, excellent service and great food
Enjoyed the food and appreciated the service. Would go again.
This place is awesome! I can’t recommend it enough. We had a party of 8 and they took great care of us. Quality of food, drinks, and service was outstanding!
Great the music was a little strange but overall excellent
Great food and service Went for Sunday brunch and will return for dinner sometime soon
Problem-made open table reservation and received text confirmation. However when we arrived the restaurant did not open until an hour later. Also menu did not match web site.
Great food. My ribeye steak was fantastic… high end steak house level! Service and atmosphere was very nice!!!
Music needs to change. That folk guitar stuff not expected. The music was killing the vibe! A theme like this should play neo soul or jazz or hip lounge music. Live music should be more along an Erykah Badu , Ella Mai or even jazz piano vibe.
Otherwise, this place is really great!
Nice atmosphere and decor is elegant.
I was so excited to try this place. Unfortunately, the only thing that met my expectations was the music. It took an hour for my salad to come out. Waiters were dancing to the music instead of serving tables. My shrimp and grits were salty. Had to raise my hand to pay for the food or otherwise nobody would have came to the table.
Very disappointing experience for my birthday dinner. My reservation was at 6:45pm. We were greeted by the host at the door and GM immediately thereafter, which was very welcoming. We were seated then everything took a turn. It was 20 minutes before the waitress showed up to bring us water. We placed our appetizer and dinner order shortly after. Fast forward to 8:15pm and we had yet to receive the appetizer, nor had the waitress stopped by our table to check on us. We noticed that other tables that were seated before us had not received their meals. With that being said, we decided to just leave and eat at another restaurant nearby. Sadly, we ran into other patrons that also left because they never received their food. I want to give them another try because I really enjoyed the atmosphere and music. I really hope that they work out the service issues!
Super neat place with a lot of history, service was beyond amazing but food was just ok - a little pricey for what we got. Would go back for the music and cocktails
The service was great. There was a bit of a mix up at first and took a while to get the food but it was very much worth the wait. I’ll be back soon
