Not enough workers. Kind of rude when you walk in. No more shrimp and grits ( stupid to take off menu) so I ordered the peel and eat shrimp, but no tartar sauce and no one could even make some. It takes 4 ingredient so any chef could fix it. Also it is as hot, temp on thermostat was 78. Not a good experience and won’t be back. I used to love this place.

The oysters were not fresh and the beef brisket was tender but it was tasteless. On a good note, our server was nice. I can think of many other places to go before I would come back here.

My husband and I ate dinner our last night in Louisville. We shared the Smoked Sampler of ribs, pulled pork and brisket with cole slaw. Fabulous! Brought home the Derby Pie to eat later. Our waiter was attentive. It was a pleasant evening!

Was disappointed to be seating by the serving window when it appeared other socially distanced tables or booths were available (we had a reservation). The food was underwhelming to say the least, and considering that overpriced. Very disappointed in this visit, as I have been there in the past and the service, food and drink were very good. Nothing special here.

Awesome food and our server was great. Only issue was he was also the bartender and they had their other bar person call off that day. I wish they would have told us rather than us just sit and wait for service. Luckily we figured it out and didn’t blame our server. He was making drinks for the whole restaurant plus had tables of his own. He was awesome!! Music was awful but overall a good time.

Excellent BBQ, and the Derby pie (came with 2 pieces!) was the best I've ever had! Chocolate chip cookies were huge, warm, crispy, and soft, all at the same time! We will definitely be back!!

We had dinner on a Monday night during COVID, so the restaurant was quiet. However, our waitress Mack did an outstanding job and we really enjoyed our meals and our bourbon cocktails!

Went on a date with my wife excited to go to the restaurant and after we got there we found out that they had a limited menu so what we really wanted they didn’t have. Also they seem very understaffed and we felt rushed by our server.

Not the same Doc Crows that I used to frequent before the management changed. The atmosphere is much more casual and the staff isn’t very friendly. The food was still good!! It’s somewhere I’d still go for lunch, but not really worth our Friday night reservation.

Service was outstanding and food came out at the speed of light. The brisket and pulled pork were good but not great. The smoked chicken was amazingly tender and moist.

I guess on account of Covid the menu has been greatly compressed. Our service was amazing young lady done a heckuva job but the food was definitely not worth what we paid. Oysters was good ribs was good the sampler plate is not as good of a deal as it seems.We will probably be back but not very soon

Good food and reasonably priced. The service was good but a bit slow at times. However there only appeared to be two servers in the whole restaurants. We will go back for sure.

Our waitress was a sweetheart and killed the service game. She was polite, quick and had a positive attitude. As far as the restaurant it’s sort of built like a shot gun house. The vibe is good, the food is good and the drinks are great! I for sure will be coming back ☺️

Thanks For such a wonderful meal and service, our server was also the bartender — I think he told me his name was Anthony. He was wonderful, entertaining, paid extra attention to detail, mixed my best margarita yet, from any local bar. So for those of you who might be coming with your husband and you are not a whiskey drinker or a bourbon drinker, he can make a mean margarita or substitute any liquor of your choice and his cocktails.

I particularly recommend the pulled pork sandwich or entrée, the sweet potato fries are excellent, and so is their pimento beer cheese and Doc Crows homemade potato chips appetizer!!
