Award winning chef, restaurateur, author and TV personality, Guy Fieri, brings his dining concept, Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, to Fourth Street Live!

Inducted into the American Royal BBQ Hall of Fame in 2012, Guy Fieri’s passion for BBQ is heavily influenced in this flagship location. The restaurant features 6,700 square feet of dining space, a 2,200 square foot patio, a large smoker custom made by Ole Hickory, and two bars.

Guy Fieri's Smokehouse features all types of smoked meat options, from starters like Trash Can Nachos to entrees like the 18-Hour Smoked Brisket. They also bring signature sandwiches and burgers to life, like the Motley Que sandwich and the Bacon Mac N Cheese Burger. Desserts, like the Cheesecake Challenge - half of a NY style cheesecake - are massive and shareable.

The cocktail menu is also large and varied, with items like the Caliente Margarita, the Hangover Recover BBQ Bloody - served alongside a skewer - and a large bourbon, wine and craft beer selection.

Did I mention slow service?
I don't think the bartender had any formal training, so stick to beer
I was so disappointed, I thought I was going somewhere Guy would put his stamp of approval on any day
I think he'd be bummed to know it runs like a fast food restaurant

We were completely disappointed with Guy Fieri's Smokehouse. The experience was terrible from the beginning. Although we had reservations, the hostess sat us near the front of the restaurant beside an outside door that opened and closed every 60 seconds and closed with a loud bang (very annoying). We tried to order from the menu, only to be informed that every pork item was not available due to a kitchen mishap. We were also informed that the fondue was not available, so it seemed like one third of the menu on a busy Friday night was not available at a barbeque restaurant! We ordered the beef brisket, and what was served were large chunks of fat that contained only modest amounts of beef. The brisket was served with cold fries and a small amount of coleslaw (about three teaspoons of slaw). We complained to the manager, who apologized for the poor food quality and limited menu options. We had such high hopes for our first visit to Guy Fieri's, but were terribly disappointed with the experience. We will not return and we will advise our friends of our bad experience and recommend that they not bother to dine at Guy Fieri's (there are many better barbeque options).

Appetizer was almost $20 but delicious, probably the best part. Our server was super sweet and quick. The restaurant ran out of one of the entrees we ordered and the alternative was bland. The experience felt rushed but given the occasion, it’s understandable. Theme restaurants are usually lackluster and this one is no different.

While the BBQ was tasty, the service was really, really slow. It took about 10 minutes for our server to arrive to our table only to tell us that she would be right back. It took a while to get our first drink, and from that point forward everything just continued on at a very, very slow pace. If you want good BBQ and you are willing to wait, then it's a solid choice. If you prefer a little better service then maybe you might want to go elsewhere.

We get there about 15 minutes early. They first seem confused we put a reservation in. I had mentioned how it was my wife's birthday. No acknowledgment. They take a few to take us to our table yet the establishment was barely full. Fine. We have one waitress come over and ask us if we want a drink and mentions it is happy hour. We order a Bud Light and mojito. No problem. However it takes another waiter to realize we still don't have drinks and he rushes to get those done. As we are waiting for our other party we order the pork rinds. I found them gross. No seasoning and way over cooked but my wife (the birthday girl) was starving. We order a second round of drinks another Bud Light and amaretto sour. Our friends show up and we order quickly as our concert is at 8. My wife and I share the trash can nachos and guys burger combo with two sides of donkey sauce. The nachos barely had any meat and all beans on them but we were completely starving by then. My burger basically tasted like all relish and cheese. The fries were either to crispy or not enough. Once again nothing done like a scoop of ice cream for the birthday girl. Then I get the bill. Her two drinks a mojito and amaretto was $20.00. By time I got done paying with tip our meal was over $70.00. I definitely felt like I did not get anything for the value and nothing done for my wife. I should of just taken her somewhere else.

Seated at the first table by the door, never good. Tried to order a beer... first 3 were “out of” really it’s beer.... 1 can two tap. Server was new but very nice, only great part of the entire experience. Food average at best. Got two burgers one w/ the Mac and cheese and “signature” burger that won awards? Yeah not seeing it. Maybe Guy needs to come back and see what is lacking. Had plenty of great food in Louisville, this not one of them.

It terms of food quality and cost, Louisville has many options I would recommend before this establishment. Given his notoriety, my expectations for one of his own restaurants was high and I was disappointed. I hope time is spent rehabbing the place so it becomes a gem rather than a dud.

My son and I are visiting from Chicago. We love watching Guy on TV, so we thought we’d stop in and give his restaurant a try. The food was just ok. It came out rather quick & was all correct. It was a bit cold, but not terrible. Our server, Grant was wonderful. He was very kind & offered great service. The hostess, not so much. I wish I would have caught her name. I only can recall that she had pink & blond hair and an attitude. When we walked into the restaurant, around 6ish, it wasn’t crowded. There were plenty of open tables. We were not greeted verbally, we were only given an eyebrow raise. I said table for 2 please. She grabbed 2 menus, walked to the back, tossed them on the table & walked away. I watched her as we waited for our dinner & she did the same thing to several other customers. Terrible first impression. Just rude.

The hostess at the door seemed to not even know what she was doing. We had reservations and she couldn’t seem to find it despite me clearly seeing my name on her screen. I had to point it out to her.
Our server was very nice but was running around very hectically as they seemed to be short staff although many kept coming out of the back to get a drink at the bar.

We were very disappointed in the food. Was just average at best. Would hope that a Guy Fieri restaurant would at least have good food. While the place smelled good the food was barely warm and really wasn’t anything above average.

This is not someplace we will be coming back to as some chain restaurants do barbecue better than here

While the food was “good,” my expectations were a bit higher and unmet. I made a reservation for my birthday, and was underwhelmed by the greeting and overall experience. The brisket (I love brisket) was tender, but no better than a neighborhood bbq. The Brussel sprouts were just a tad undercooked, but the slaw was refreshing. I wasn’t impressed for a big name in the food business.

This pains me to provide a negative review, however things were so terrible I can not keep silent. We were in town for a large event and all of the restaurants on Fourth Street Live were extremely crazy busy. Our event was a year in the making and all business were expecting us and most were well prepared.
We were a table of six and we were seated toward the very end of the night. The amount of time it took to be greeted by our server who was whizzing past us for over 15 minutes, was a bit excessive. His overall service from that point was the bare minimum he needed to provided and he made it clear through words and actions that he wasn't happy to be providing that (he told us he had already mentally checked out).

What was most disappointing was the food. Our last visit provided us with one of the most delicious memories; the meatloaf, the meat sampler plate and most of all the fresh pork rinds for an appetizer. We raved to our guests about what they could expect and everyone could forgive the bad service if the food was as we expected. It was however completely sub-par. Everything was cold, overcooked and the french fries were so disgustingly dry and brittle from sitting around too long - they basically served the un-servable.

Some would say that this is to be expected from a chain restaurant where people are just working a job and not invested in the end product, but I would argue a chain like this had been a gem and needs to be aware of where they have been falling short so they can work of fixing what is clearly broken.

Disappointing meal. My wife had the meatloaf which the waiter recommended. She found the meal not eatable and sent it back.

The service wasn't that great. We didn't have utensils and the waitress said to just use our fingers until she could find us some. I ordered a cocktail and 30 mins later she came back to tell me they couldn't make it so I needed to pick something else. I couldn't get a refill of my tea. We ordered nachos as an appetizer and the waitress took our plate away when We had still been eating on it. Had to track her down to get the bill..pay the bill..and get Togo boxes. She came back and said she had a party and that is what took up all her time so that's why she couldn't give us enough attention. We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was great though.
