    The service was superb and the building was beautiful. I wasn’t impressed with the “Hot Brown” dish. Quite bland. Needed salt and herbs. The steak, however, was delicious.

    The Lobby Bar at the Brown Hotel is a fabulous experience, especially when you order the signature hot brown. I would recommend it to anyone and especially to visitors from outside of of Louisville. It is a truly memorable experience. Iconic.

    Was visiting from NC and looking for experiences unique to Louisville/Kentucky. Discovered the Hot Brown. It was delicious. Servers were wonderful; friendly and personable. Went back the following night for Derby Pie.

    When we first arrived, there was a very loud crowd next to us and my husband almost wanted to leave. They left after a bit, and we are so glad we stayed, The food - all of it, from salad to entrees to dessert - was delicious, the Old Fashioneds were on point, and the service was exceptional. Would definitely visit again.

    Food was outstanding. Was so glad there was a petite option for the Hot Brown. It was still massive. The duck breast was cooked perfectly.
