WE ARE 21+ ONLY!!
Wonderful service and fabulous food. We had the pretzel loaf- very tasty and delicious. We ordered the 3D Valley burgers w/Fritjes for both of us and we also asked for a side of beer cheese to go with our burgers. Great beer, great food, superb service and a very nice time spent at dinner. We weren't hurried to leave after we finished our meal as we sat in the choir loft. We will be back and I refer Holy Grale to all my friends and out of town guests.
My first time there was very pleasant. Everyone on the staff seemed to be in good spirits
The food was really good but the service was terrible. We sat at the bar and the bartenders acted like we were an inconvenience to them the whole time. My meal was also brought out 20 minutes before my wife’s. The food was good but we couldn’t wait to leave. We were originally planning on staying for a bit and having some more drinks but ended up leaving as soon as we were done eating.
Hi, we are so sorry you had that experience with us. After checking around, there was a general consensus that the Sunday you visited was a rare moment where we were having a really bad day. You definitely did not experience us at our best. And while it happens, restaurants have “bad days,” we don’t want it to ever affect our guests, and that’s what happened to you. We want to apologize and hope you come back in for a better time.
Great spot. Our group enjoyed our time celebrating my daughter’s 30th birthday.
Very good food & service.....ate in the choir loft, which was a little quieter than downstairs....very enjoyable evening
Very noisy in the choir loft but excellent food and craft beer at a reasonable price. We always enjoy coming here and appreciate the ability to reserve a table.
Fabulous service. The staff in the choir loft gave great suggestions.
I will treasure my experience here for a long time to come. If you appreciate a true Belgian fry, be sure to visit this church-turned-tavern tastebud playground.
Additionally, Holy Grale hosts an outstanding beer list.
Late Fathers Day
This was a great place for my our of town friends who love craft beer. They also like food, and were pleased with the Kentucky Proud products. It was a beautiful evening to sit on the patio.
Wonderful meal, service and atmosphere. Will certainly go back.
We took friends who had not been here before. Sat upstairs. Patio full and bar area noisy. Forgot upstairs small. Beers good. Selection almost too much. Food selection almost too small. Wanted BLT Sliders. Still on website but MIA in restaurant. Fries still great and Simple Salad tasty. We will go back but not on a regular basis.
Hello! We apologize for not having sliders, despite the online menu still stating it... we had an issue with not being able to update our website at all but have since built a new website, and all menus have been updated! We invite you to come back to try some of our new menu items!
Staff well versed on beer menu and made great recommendations
Bachelor party dinner. Reserved the upstairs loft. Perfect for the occasion.
Well... we were disappointed that there wasn’t a full bar (we didn’t read the menu correctly) We were okay with just a bourbon until we learned they have nothing on ice- meaning warm wine, water & bourbon, and no Chardonnay. Food was just okay.
Hello! Unfortunately we do not have the plumbing for an ice machine, but we do keep wine that is traditionally served cold in a wine fridge. We also keep water in a fridge so guests can enjoy cold water and wine served at its appropriate temperature. We do have Chardonnay, or something similar to it, and it is kept at the appropriate temperature for serving.
Confused on entry to the set up. Super friendly staff and a frequent customer directed. Open table reservation was placed. Table was set up and waiting on us in loft area with a separate bar. Super cute location and feel. Very much a highland vibe. Took a minute to figure out the menu. If you are a big beer buff this would be your jam. Overall experience was great for our girls night out. If you are in loft area bring a sweater there is a vent that hits the table we were at and the longer you are sitting the colder it feels. Would recommend this place and recommend placing a reservation if larger than four In your party. It seems to be very popular and was filling up on a Thursday night.
Great bar for drinks. Thought we would grab dinner here, but food menu takes back seat to beer - ended up at another place for food, but the ambience and drinks were outstanding
Overall great experience. Truly enjoyed the ambiance. Would recommend highly!
We are so happy that Choir Loft now takes reservations. We go for family birthdays. The service is spectacular. I wish I could remember our server's name. He suggested just the right beer and was relaxed and cheerful with a large group.
One of our favorite spots - best beer service in Louisville. Knowledgeable staff, and great food! Best burger.
Holy Grail was a great experience. They accommodated my last minute reservations on a Friday night. The atmosphere was very comfortable and the servers were very knowledgeable about the food and drink selection. I'll definitely go again and bring others with me.
I made a reservation for a large group for my birthday, and we had a perfect evening! Our server up in the choir loft was excellent, as were the other staff members who promptly brought up food and drinks. They were also very nice about helping us fit in a few extra guests at the last minute. Thanks to everyone at Holy Grale!!
Great beers and the food is just as great!
Holy Grale is essentially a beer bar with a selection of really good "bar" food, the beer selection is really excellent. Food choices are limited but all very good. It has limited seating, so reserve.
Everything about Holy Grale exceeded expectations! Our server was knowledgeable and hilarious. The food was AMAZING. Every bite was just so good. The beer was ridiculously good. We left dinner so happy. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing! We loved the beer menu and the two restaurant options. We ate downstairs with bar service on the Saturday night and then ate upstairs with excellent table service on the Sunday night since we liked it so much. Bartender was engaging and recommended excellent beers based on the ones I already drank and enjoyed. Excellent food both nights. Downstairs was more lively with louder music and conversations whereas the Choir Loft offered a great chance for conversation over multiple beers. Loved this place and will definitely go back if I'm ever in the city again.
Great food and beers. Love the portion size, light, but big with flavors. Keep up the outstanding work.
Reservations are seated in the choir loft. Fabulous atmosphere but very loud when a bachelor party arrived.
Took my spouse for birthday and they made it very special. Highly recommend!
Wide variety of beers, ales, and ciders.
Not a big menu but everything we ordered was good. We were pleased with our food and will definitely return.
Servicer was informative & helpful & efficient. Atmosphere was comfortable.
We had a great time. Super fine beers, and great, unique food selections. Best french fry salad I've ever had, but it had some fancier name.
Made reservations in Choir Loft. Great food. Way too loud. Couldn’t hold a conversation without practically yelling. Or just talking to person next to you.
Service was horrible. Really cool setup and the food was fine, but waiting so long for everything (especially waters and beers) ruined the experience for our big group.
Love love love Holy Grale. Eat there every chance we get.
Great service, wonderful food, and extremely cool atmosphere!
We were in Louisville for holiday and had high expectations from Holy Grale based on reviews and research. Unfortunately it was a bust. They first brought me out my grilled green tomato salad without the tomatoes among other components. When we brought it to their attention they finally brought it as intended and I’m not sure if I was more disappointed before or after. It was just awful.
Then we also ordered a schnitzel sandwich and fries. Of course they forgot the fries.. while they did apologize for it, it was brought at the very end of our meal and it was just unpleasant entirely.
Service was sloppy. Nobody seemed to be on the same page. Wouldn’t recommend nor come back. Sadly it was the worst restaurant we visited in Louisville.
Great beer selection from around the world. We had a very knowledgeable server, Nick, who assisted us in making selections and had very tasty recommendations. Food selection is somewhat limited but well prepared. Burgers are a good bet.
Had an absolute blast with friends in the Choir Loft celebrating my husband’s birthday. Fantastic food and drinks, gorgeous atmosphere. Can’t wait to return!
The food here was great. Service was fantastic. If you are not a beer lover and would prefer wine or cocktails, not the place for you. They do have some wine, but by the glass it comes from a tap and I happened to get the last glass from the tap and was SICK as a dog the entire next day. I'm assuming it wasn't the food because nobody else got sick and I know it wasn't a bug because this was not your normal run of the mill stomach bug. I literally felt like I had the worst hangover I've ever had, from TWO glasses of white wine. Weird. Lesson learned. Bottom of the tap is a BAD idea.
