Wonderful surprises, best fried oyster appetizer ever. Every item brought to us was exactly what we expected, top shelf. The biggest surprise was that the prices were not unfairly jacked up! (Like Malone’s)

Loved our table in the back where it was quieter despite a large number of people in the restaurant. We enjoyed our cocktails which arrived quickly- an old fashioned and Best Fronds Forever- both were very good. We ordered an appetizer which did take longer to arrive but our server told us it was on the house because of the wait even though we hadn’t complained. My husband ordered the beef stew and I had the fried catfish and both were really hot and delicious! Our server was very attentive and efficient. A very enjoyable meal

Great meal and service. I thought the lobster bisque was a bit thin and salty. With the red caviar it did not need much more salt and a bit more cream wold make it better. My wife had salmon and I had Steak Diane. Both were outstanding.

Early New Year’s Eve dinner - we had shrimp and grits and the Delmonico steak. Excellent meal, attentive server, pleasant atmosphere and delicious dessert. We like the fact the menu is sourced from local farms and businesses. Honeywood always comes to my rescue for dinner/brunch reservations. Highly recommend for something a little different. Oh, by the way, make sure you try the Sweet Potato Beignets!

We had been told the food was outstanding but it was not. The people at my table
who ordered bean soup were so disappointed. My shrimp and grits was just ok.
The catfish wasn't very good either. When you order bean soup in Kentucky, you
don't want stylized bean soup. You just want Kentucky bean soup!
The restaurant was cold on a mild day. We were our coats.

We received a nice welcome at the door. Extremely courteous hosting. The server also was nice.

Drinks were mixed well but not the best temperature—too warm. Glasses were brought to us soiled. Food portions were stingy for the pricing; Mac and cheese was soggy, and the sauce far outweighed the overcooked pasta.

Below average food for price, portions, cleanliness, and quality. This was even mediocre food for Honeywood, where we have unpredictable food every time. We keep coming back because we are in the area often; but cannot promise to continue to do so.

Ran out of food. Frozen hamburger patties, tough, and not very palatable. Chicken very dry. Overpriced. Server was very rushed but there were not many patrons in the restaurant.

Everything was amazing! We got the mushroom toast, sweet potato beignets, blackened catfish, shrimp and grits(add fried oysters) Mac and cheese, pimento beer cheese, peanut butter pie. Our only complaint would be the French fries needed to be cooked longer. They were a little dense, needed another 4-5 minutes in the fryer. We would definitely return next time in Louisville.

Don't order the catfish. They should take it off the menu.
On the scale of Mrs Paul's frozen fish and they've changed their French fries... not the same small fresh cut ones they used to serve. Love Honeywoo generally. Hubby's steak was good though. Love the service amd atmosphere.
