Doc Crow's Southern Smokehouse & Raw Bar Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated my husband's birthday at Doc Crow's, and overall, it was a great experience! Our server (Courtney?) was attentive and friendly, without being intrusive; and the environment was pretty chill. Our Black Mule cocktails were poured generously, and the potato chip-based version of a barbeque nacho plate was not only delicious, but also much larger than we expected.
The only misstep I noticed during our meal was the Caesar salad with shrimp that I ordered for my entree. The salad itself was very large (so large that I had enough leftover for a second entree-sized lunch salad the next day), but only had six average-sized shrimp. While the dish had wonderful flavors, the giant pile of lettuce on my plate unfortunately seemed to emphasize the small serving of shrimp that I'd ordered with it. My husband, on the other hand, had a nicely-portioned serving of shrimp and grits, which he said tasted perfect. So perhaps their salad portions just need to be tweaked.
That said, we would totally eat there again. The menu has lots of interesting options, and there are definitely other dishes I would be interested in trying.
I find myself in Louisville once each year for business and Doc Crow’s has become my favorite spot for dinner. The casual vibe, friendly staff and great food are the perfect antidote for the travel weary. On this visit I started with their Kentucky Colnel cocktail and Oysters Rockefeller. Both were fantastic. I had the salmon entree which was perfectly cooked and came with sautéed spinach with a lemon cream sauce and cornbread stuffing. The slight sweetness of the cornbread paired very well with the salmon. My only regret is that I won’t be back for another year.
The food was delicious. The waiter was outstanding, he went out of his way to explain the menu and options we could get. We never had to wait for anything. He offered exceptional service to me and my family. We were there celebrating my sons birthday and he received a complimentary dessert. I would highly recommend restaurant to friends and family. We will more visits to the restaurant.
This was our first visit to Louisville. Doc Crow’s is a must go for great southern cooking. Wife had the Oyster Po-boy and I had the chicken one night and brisket the next (we had to go back). Oh and the chili. Terrific is all I can say. You won’t be disappointed.
I've been here a few times, and it's always been great. I took my boyfriend for the first time, for his birthday and he really liked it. He had the fried pork chops and said they were awesome. I had the pulled pork sandwich, and it was just ok. I'd had it before and loved it. This time it was really wimpy. There was hardly any pulled pork on it and a bunch of it was fat and cartilage, that not only looked really gross, but was inedible, leaving even less meat. Luckily I didn't eat the bun and just ate the pork, slaw and fried onions off of the sandwich, so I didn't bite into the weird meat parts. I had beans and okra for my sides, which were an up-charge for one and an additional cost for the other... they were both good. And my cocktail was fantastic. Overall I do like this place and will go back. I will just more cautious of what I order.
Downside to the place is how sides aren't included with a lot of entrees so adding a few sides can really rack up the cost of the meal. Wish they would add more sides to meals, most other local, similar, places do. I mean if I got two sides included with a meal, I would be more apt to buy an additional cocktail or dessert. Just something to consider.
I absolutely love Doc Crows!!! I went there to celebrate my 24th birthday, and my 15 guests and I had a great time. The food is GREAT, service was awesome, and they really went the extra mile to ensure that my guest and I were accomidated. Doc Crows is a great place to eat and dine with friends. Enjoy!!!
Had a great meal at Doc Crow's last night! My wife and I came to Kentucky this weekend to explore the bourbon trail and Doc Crow's did not disappoint with its selection. They have a great southern style BBQ menu and big enough portions to share. Classic sides and southern desserts were a highlight. The ambiance was great, with exposed brick, high ceilings and a classic roadside diner feel with high end finishing. The oyster bar was a welcome treat. The only knock was that my wife's chicken sandwich was a bit chewy. Probably just one of those random menu items that just isn't great. I had the roasted BBQ chicken meal and it was great. I'd go back just for the baked beans
