Steakhouse
Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company. A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.


Please call the restaurant for a reservation with 5 or more guests.

The food was great. It took a really long time to get seated, we had to sit at the bar for at least 20 minutes before our table is ready. The staff was great you could just tell they were understaffed. The drinks were amazing and the food was fantastic. We had brunch. The avocado toast, breakfast potatoes, and we shared the burger. Would definitely recommend for brunch

Amelia made our experience wonderful. The ambiance is laid back and low key. The steak tartare, bone in filet and key lime pie were delicious. House survival old fashioned is a must have. Ruby's and le moo, watch out for repeal!!

Really great repeat visit to Repeal! This is my new favorite destination for dining out in Louisville. Got to sit in the barrel room this time and we loved the ambiance and privacy apart from the main dining room. We’ll be coming back for sure!

Our server was very sweet, but maybe a bit overwhelmed. She mentioned that they were busier than they expected and probably a little understaffed. A couple of small snafus with our order, but quickly resolved. Manager was assisting with getting food to tables and greeting customers. Overall a good experience.

From the moment you arrive the staff is very attentive. We were seated promptly without delay at our reservation time.
The waitress was the best, she even discussed our selection with the Chef and reserved the last Wagyu Tomahawk for us.
The meat was cooked to perfection and shown to us prior to the Chef slicing the meat.
The sides were awesome...
Could not have chosen a better restaurant for my wife's Birthday.
We will definitely be returning for another meal at Repeal.

The food was outstanding, and the server was very nice. We waited quite a while between each course, but it wasn't a deal breaker. If you're going to drop a few bucks for a night out this place is definitely worth it.

By far the best steak I have ever had. We have eaten at many upscale steakhouses and was very impressed with all food that was served. Seating was well spaced and we only had one other couple at the 6 feet mark so we felt really safe. I tried the signature Old Fashion and a Caramelized Pineapple Mule and both were fantastic. It's not somewhere we can afford to go on the regular, but definitely will be going again for special occasions.

Dined by myself and ordered the wedge salad and hangar steak. Food was outrageously good. I honestly could have just had the salad and been full, but then I would have missed out on one of the best steaks I’ve ever ordered. Highly recommend, but make a reservation to ensure you get a table.
