After reading some of the reviews I was a little concerned about the Sunday buffet. People said it was a tiny buffet. I don't understand what they want. It had scrambled eggs or prepared omelet, potatoes, grits, hot brown, sausage, bacon, meat balls, chili, fruit, cheese and biscuits with gravy.
How much more variety do people need? And, it was only $12.95!

Went there with a group of friends for Sunday Brunch. 3 of us got the buffet, and 1 got the Chicken and Waffles. The omelet station made the meal. The gentleman cooking the omelets had all of his first place ribbons from the Kentucky State Fair behind him, and his omelets did not disappoint. Everyone left very happy with our bellies satisfied.

We had a reservation for 6pm on a Saturday to make an 8pm curtain at the Center for the Arts. My friend had a glass of wine with her chicken quesadillas and enjoyed every bite. I had a Kentucky Mule alongside the black and blue salad, which was heavy on the onions but otherwise delicious. Service was quick and friendly, and we had plenty of time to get to the theater. A very pleasant evening.

I took some business friends to dinner there while we were all in town at a conference. None of us live there. I looked at the menu online and it looked fine for two of my vegetarian friends. But, when we got to the restaurant some of those items were not on the menu which severely limited their menu choices. The restaurant website should be kept up to date on such things.

Had difficulty finding the restaurant because we were from out of state. We made several calls while on the road to add time to our reservation. Staff was friendly and helpful while they held the reservation through our phone calls. We were then pressed for time when we arrived. They accommodated us and served us quickly and well. The drinks and food were great. This experience was one of the best during our trip. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My husband had some of the best fried chicken ever! My salmon was delicious as well. I really wanted the shrimp and grits but they were out of shrimp. We also tried to order the Reuben egg rolls and they were out of them as well. It was a Sunday evening so they are forgiven.

Visiting Louisville for a long weekend and found Dish on Market right around the corner from our hotel. There were few other options that were open within close walking distance so we decided to give it a try. We walked in around 10:30am and were greeted by a hostess with an attitude. Despite the open tables on the main floor, we were told that anyone without a reservation would have about an hour wait. I was able to log on to Open Table and immediately get a reservation for 10:45am, a trick the hostess was not thrilled with. We were sat almost immediately and waited about 10 minutes for our drink order to be taken. There was a buffet option but we decided to order off of the menu instead, BIG MISTAKE. We ordered waffles, toast, and eggs which are all very easy to make and generally really quick. Regardless, It took about an hour for our food to come and when it arrived it looked as if it had just been slapped onto the plate and was barely warm. The food we ordered was nothing special and we probably would have been better off selecting the buffet (or another restaurant).

I am from the North East so I acknowledge that things move slower in the south but even after taking that into consideration, Dish on Market was not nearly busy enough for the service to be as slow as it was. The waitress was very apologetic and seemed a little overwhelmed so I'm hoping that this experience is not a reflection of how things generally run. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt with 3 stars.

If we're ever in town again I might give it a second chance but would probably look a little further into other options first.

A group of of went before the Bruno Mars concert. We did make reservations and were sat immediately.

Would have rated the food as outstanding but there was some type of vegetable pancake on my burger that was under cooked and awful. If you like that sort of thing, you would probably like that. I did see it on the menu listing but it was not what I had envisioned. Probably my mistake anyways.

Otherwise, I had zero complaints.

Wait staff was super accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu, beer, and bourbon list.

Stopped in looking for good solid Southern cooking before heading back north. Wife had the fried chicken dinner and loved it. I had the Shrimp and Grits and found the dish delicious! Since we just finished a local Bourbon tasting, we both ordered the local Kentucky barrel aged beer on tap which was outstanding. Looked a little questionable from the outside but once inside we really enjoyed the friendly hospitality from the staff and the excellent food.

Nice atmosphere. Fast and friendly service.
The food was very tasty, but I was disappointed by the portion size.
I ordered the King Louie Club which was only 1/2 of a sandwich, which looked big, but was mostly bread and minimal meat.

We enjoyed our visit! Our reserved table was immediately ready. Our server, Courtney, was very friendly and took care of us throughout the meal. She was very busy but handled all of her tables efficiently. The food was really good. I had the fish and chips, the cole slaw was delicious. We would definitely visit again the next time we're in town.

I ate here with 3 friends before a show at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. The restaurant was full (we had reservations) but service was quick and friendly and waitress was able to assist with selection for something with dietary restrictions. Received food quickly. Portion sizes are just right (not ridiculously huge as they often are). Would definitely return on a future visit to Louisville.
