    Great ambience in a historic building in downtown Louisville. Very, very spacious restaurant. Friendly and attentive server. Fresh oysters were some of the best we've had. Well over a hundred bourbons to choose from. Delicious mint juleps. Entrees were upscale southern style. Highly recommend! A jewel of Louisville!

    We had a reservation party of nine. Once we got sad it literally took over a half an hour for our drinks to show up. We explained to the waiter that we had a show to be at and only had an hour and a half. Did not seem to matter. On top of that I’ll say for a place that is so highly sought after the food was marginal at best. Got the barbecue sampler and had very very small portions of pulled pork and two very small pieces of brisket and chicken. The best thing was the hot fried chicken. But really came for the barbecue. Been to 100 other places that have better barbecue. Off my bucket list and honestly no need to go back

    Cool place! Unfortunately our server ruined it for us. We felt as if we were invisible to her. She spent 99% of her time with a table right beside us because they were ordering so much bourbon. We had to keep grabbing her, otherwise she would just walk right by us. Was really disappointed.

    We ordered the smoked meat platter. It was to dry. Had to use extra bbq sauce to make it worth eating. Very dissatisfied. The oysters were good but we ordered them for an appetizer and they came after our meal was served. Not a good experience. Staff was average. Could be a bit more friendly. Won’t go back.

    My food did not come out, although my husband’s meal was brought. They forgot his fries and brought him chips instead (the food runner brought him some fries after requested). I waited and waited. Finally I was told they ran out of what I ordered. Meanwhile my husband’s food was cold. The manager came and said our meal would be comped. I ordered something else. Food was delicious. Bill came and the meal was not comped. Just weren’t charged for the second thing I ordered. They still charged us for the side I had ordered with my first meal and also for the fries we had to ask for. Additionally, my cocktail was not mixed and it came with no straw or mixer. The first half was fine but the bottom was all sugar. Undrinkable. I ordered more whisky to mix with it, and waited and waited. Had to ask again for it. All in all, not a great experience but the food was good.

    Unfortunately, this visit to Doc Crows wasn’t enjoyable. Out of menu items, drink order took longer to arrive than food to table, air conditioning was out so the whole place was sweltering hot… overall a bad experience this time.

    We were dining due to a concert at the KFC Yum! Center the food was amazing and delicious a little spicy but we really enjoyed it. Please sit in the very back and there was no air-conditioning it was very very hot we asked multiple times about the temperature and was told that it was broke and there was nothing they could do.

    We had a nice dinner. The food was very good but the table was very poor. The restaurant is divided into 3 sections. A bar (nice), a rear dinning area (nice) and a middle hallway (bad). Our table was in the hallway and would not recommend taking a table there. There was lots of noise and traffic that really took away from the good food experience. Given the storage of help, the place would be better off just closing those tables.

    Waitress was pleasant, but made a couple of mistakes when delivering our food. In other words, we didn't get what we ordered and had to ask her to please bring this or please bring that. The food was good, but quite honestly, going to Louisville and visiting Doc Crows for the first time, we were all kind of let down...including the one local resident who went with us.

    First time there. I went with a party of 9 for my birthday dinner. The restaurant is huge…which you can’t tell from the entrance but it’s spacious. I just knew even with my reservation we’d be waiting to be seated for a while, but that was not the case. Dinner was great, food was awesome. We were there for about 1.5 hours talking, eating, and doing the cake thing. I have no complaints other than they were out of fried oysters for the appetizers and according to the person who wanted them (yuck!!) they are the best they’ve ever had. Maybe next time the person can get ‘em.

    Amazing meal!! They were booked for dinner weeks in advance so we settled for a 2:30 reservation…it was worth skipping dinner for! The chips with brisket were the perfect t start…the chips alone would have been amazing but the topping piled on were perfection! I had the spicy margarita…yum-o!! We shared brisket, Mac and cheese and fried okra. Best Mac n cheese I’ve ever had and the okra was perfection. It was so good we returned to try out breakfast the next day. Latte and Bloody Mary were great…second only to the biscuits and gravy!!

    After our food was served, our server forgot about us. They have a lot of bourbon to choose from. Smokehouse Mussels were delicious. The brisket was the best part of the Smokehouse Sampler. We were going to return for breakfast and decided to go elsewhere.
