The food was good and our server was very attentive and accurate. Unfortunately, after our party had eaten our food and enjoyed several beverages, we discovered that the check had added a $1 Derby charge to each item. Each drink. Each entree. Each side. It wasn’t that we couldn’t afford the additional charge; it’s the fact that we weren’t advised and wouldn’t have been had we not caught it. Very shady.

Brisket was dry, coleslaw bland. Waitress did not notice we were sitting down for 15 minutes. Ambiance was nice, but we came for the food. Recommend Doc Crow's down the road.. Better everything.

Food was terrible. We were one of only a few tables yet it took forever to get our food and when it arrived, it was cold, chewy and all around bad. We had low expectations going in... we expected about as much as you can expect from a chain restaurant. However, it still undelivered. Food was TERRIBLE. Never again.

Employees were wrapping silverware outside after clearing tables and one was touching his nose and continued to wrap without gloves on. Food came to table cold, had to send it back. When new food came my wife's pasta dish had a hair in it. Our server was very nice and apologetic, but other than that it was not a good experience!!

Waitstaff was amazing. Took care of us completely, made great recommendations and could speak to food AND liquor. Food was overpriced/ drinks good but very $$ but we knew that going in..... loved that you could see the smoker. Tables were to close to major walk through area, you had to squeeze to get anywhere. (Poor waitstaff carrying tons of food!). I was glad we were not seated near the bar it would have been constant chaos. Over all a fun casual experience.

Great service, great Music, and The Nachos were incredible, possibly the best ever. The vegetables were excellent. However, the BBQ needs some work and is way overcompensated with fake smoke flavoring.

NCAA tournament crowd, so very busy with long waits without reservations, but my opinion, they handled the rush well. Waiter was friendly and knew the menu well. Service was maybe just a little slower than normal but still within expectations. Food was hot and as described, and very good. This was not going to be an easy night regardless but I was impressed with their capability, and will go back another time.

Motley Que was good, slaw missing something, big dipper was a Guy specialty but the roast beef was tough and not much horseradish mayo, the fries were excellent, but didn't come for those.

Cool place. My kids food was good, and the service was very friendly. But my pulled pork sandwich was more of a Cole slaw sandwich with a few pieces of pulled pork. What I did get was really good, just really disappointed with the amount. The Brussels sprouts were tasty but pretty much raw. They were very crunchy and not soft at all so I could not really eat them. I didn't complain because they accidentally gave me the mac n cheese first, which was really good and didn't charge me. Again, cool place, great ambiance for the area, and friendly staff, but feel bad that Guy's name is on this as we are fans of his shows. If I would've gotten more pulled pork ( since BBQ is in the name of the restaurant) I wouldn't be complainin'.

It was NCAA game time so a little noise was not only fine but expected. We also found out on our trip that KY doesn't like to set silverware or napkins on the table until after you've been served your food. Not sure why that is, nonetheless we had a great time and enjoyed our evening. Visit if you've never been!

I made reservations for my husband's birthday. We watch the Diners, Drive Ins and Dives show all of the time so I was hoping the food would be really good.
I was not impressed.
We ordered the jalapeno pork rinds. While the flavor was good, you could only eat about half of the order because they were hard as a rock and we were afraid we were going to break our teeth eating them.

My husband and his best friend order the half chicken. The chicken was good but the cornbread was crumbly and hard as a brick, and the corn dish mush with it was so salty you could barely eat it. I had the pulled pork which was ok but needed more sauce. The baked beans were delicious.
My girlfriend had the chicken sandwich which was ok too.
I was looking to be really blown away at the food but it was just mediocre at best. We still had a nice time at 4th Street live but I think next time we will dine somewhere else.

I made a reservation online for 830 got there got sat immediately which was great. But once we were set we sat there till nine until somebody came and took our order no one came to check on us no one came and took our drink order no one asked if we even want to drinks until the hostess came over about at nine brought us waters and said your server will be with you and then it took about another 10 to 15 minutes for our server to actually come around to take out order. We love the food and the service was terrible and we would never recommend it because of this site for a service we did not receive

The restaurant was cold. Yes it’s cool outside but we were to the point of almost slipping our jackets back on.
The server was fantastic, very attentive and gave us information about what to choose.
Once we received our meals, they were lukewarm at best. The fry trio looked and tasted like they had been a day old and refried. They were hard and cold. Then we ordered dessert, a piece of banana cream pie. We didn’t think it was going to take 20 minutes plus to get a piece of semi frozen pie.
Would we go back again and give this place a chance. I doubt it since there are other known places in the same area.

Staff uninterested, on mobile phones often.
Brisket not tender.
Ribs tough.
Food just warm or cold.
No silverware at table, asked and were brought plasticware packages with no explanation. When asked, we were told that dishwasher backed up so they had none.
Impossible to cut tough brisket with flimsy plasticware, ate by hand.
Had to ask for more napkins, only napkins we had were ones that came with plasticware plastic package.
Our experience was bad, will probably never return.
