Our party of 7 was seated promptly, had great service, and all of our food was excellent! It was a great find for lunch on Saturday before heading to the theater to watch The Lion King. Great start to a fabulous day!

We've always loved DISH but never realized they did a breakfast buffet on the weekend! It's also free for kids 3 and under which was an absolute delight/life-saver. The food was delicious and came out fast! Their bloody mary and coffee hit the spot as well. This might be our weekly tradition with the kids.

I had recommended Dish because we were going to a show that night at 8. We got there at 5:15 and had plenty of time. The service started out ok but when we got our food, the greens that I had been bragging about were so salty none of us could eat them (and I love salt). The wait staff took them back, but seemed aggravated. As the meal progressed, she seemed cranky every time we asked her for something, another drink, boxes, coffee, dessert...whatever it was, it seemed like we were imposing. So we just stopped asking. Needless to say my friends were surprised that I liked going there. When we got our checks, 2 of the 3 weren't right...we were being charged for coffee that never came and an appetizer that wasn't ours.....which seemed to make her even more angry. I always leave a 20% tip and so does my Mother, so it wasn't like we stiffed her, but even when we left, she bumped into me and wouldn't even say good night or anything...Needless to say, it will probably be awhile til I can get anyone to give it another shot.

I’m a vegetarian so I’d hoped there were more options but my salad was good.

Waitstaff was good in helping with getting grandson his beverage in a lidded cup, getting high chair, etc.
Have had the buffet before. It has been better than it was on this particular day.

A colleague and I had an early Sunday brunch before a pre-conference session. The servers opened up a few minutes early. We ate the recommended buffet and it was impressive. The salad seemed a little different to me but it was tasty even at 8 in the morning.

Read reviews that rated this place high however, it was far from our expectations. Buffet was just ok with chicken not fully cooked. Eggs ordered to cook came from buffet and were not fresh. Pancakes came out burnt. Coke was watered down and one person never got their coffee. Just a so so place

The food was overall good, but we had to continuously ask for coffee and service was slow. We also didn’t get all our food at once and had to tell the server what we were missing. Our missing food was brought shortly after.

Food was delicious and so nice to be able to walk from our hotel. Hands down the best part of the experience was our wonderful server jolie. She was so kind to the 5 little kids in our big group and treated them with such compassion and care. She learned all of their names and even added some special syrup to their sprites to make them special. Such a treat to the four parents in our group.

Tomorrow is my nieces wedding. Tonight we dined at Dish on Main and it was delightful. We had chosen it for breakfast also which was equally good. The mint julep's were exceptional, the food was delicious and plentiful and the atmosphere was conducive to a family event

The food was fantastic. We brought both of our kids, ages 13 and 10, who are somewhat picky eaters with opposite tastes. The lovely waitress helped create plates that both enjoyed.

Really liked the atmosphere and look of the place, felt rustic and small. Appreciated that they accepted a large reservation as all places don't and gave us close seating--we were also happy to be seated right away. It did take us a while to get our food, but it was a big group. I wish they had notified us about the required gratuity when we made the reservation, not because we didn't plan on tipping but it would have been better for me to tell everyone ahead of time in case they had a financial boundary. Someone in our party had found a bug in her to go box which was not ideal, but our waitress promptly replaced it and was attentive to us throughout the duration of our meal. Most of us enjoyed our food, their breakfast options were the best overall but I cannot speak on the dinner options. I think the atmosphere was what I enjoyed most.

I had the burger and sweet potato fries- both were wonderful! The pepper jelly on the burger added a great taste (who would have thought?). Our server was very attentive to all our needs and the food arrived promptly and hot. I’ll be back!

Food was fantastic (we had their Bourbon BBQ Burger, Reuben, and potato salad), atmosphere was cozy, and the staff was very helpful. We watched as they went out of their way to help another customer with food allergy issues choose menu items.

Great location on Whiskey Row in Louisville. The bar is fun and the food is good. Had the Avocado toast, but probably should have gone with the brunch buffet. Not much Avocado on in the dish. It was tasty, but wanted more of the green stuff. Server missed my additional request for a side. Been there 3 or 4 times and always was great. This is the first time I did not sit at the bar.

Located in downtown so parking was difficult. The price was reasonable but the food was just ok. Do not recommend the avocado toast as it was just sliced avocado on top of some toast topped with a couple eggs.

Read some great reviews online about this place and it did not disappoint. We sat at the bar and had top notch service. They do a great brunch buffet on Sat & Sun. and it's a steal for $15 per person. They have a made to order omelet station, fresh fruit and salad bar, but they also have staples of eggs, sausage, bacon and cheesy hashbrowns. But they also have biscuits and gravy, grits and the best fried chicken. Sometimes fried chicken ends up very dry and/or very greasy. This fried chicken was neither of them. Additionally, they have some of the best bourbons (read: rare) on the market and their prices are very reasonable. If their breakfast buffet was this good, I can't wait to try their lunch and dinner options!!!

There were 8 of us for Sunday brunch. I recommend getting a reservation if you are planning a gathering of this many because of the cozy layout of the dining areas. Our space was in the balcony and very comfortable.
The food was delicious, especially the Hot Brown casserole. The only native Kentuckian in the group had 3 helpings!!
The service was so accommodating. We were celebrating a 1st wedding anniversary. The servers got us small plates, forks, and a knife so the anniversary couple could cut the top layer of the wedding cake and share it with the table.
We will certainly return whenever we come back to downtown Louisville. A couple dining next to us said it is their go-to restaurant.
