Steakhouse
Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company in Louisville. 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.

Now serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

    Smallest 8 oz filet I have ever seen. I cannot stand to go to a steakhouse that does not know how to cook a steak to desired temp. We sent it back to be cooked medium vs medium rare, by the time we go it back everything else was cold or eaten, destroys the whole experience.

    First visit. Noticed dirty/dusty ledge and reported to manager. She’s kinda shrugged, said thanks, and we will take care of it later. Those busing tables should be cleaning this regularly when cleaning tables. Jacob, our waiter, explained menu. Special menu for week of PGA at Valhalla. Prices higher than regular menu and less items available. Jacob brought drinks and salads timely. Bread never brought to table even though he mentioned it was coming out. Everyone ordered steaks. Steaks were split by couple. Wood fired heavy charred steaks and salty. Had to cut char off steak. Had to send one steak back to bring it up to medium versus medium rare. Jacob rarely came back to check the table. Had to ask for salt and ground pepper. We had an early reservation at 5:00 pm. And left by 6.30. First time. Last time.

    We thought the ambience was good, the food was really good, we were seated immediately, it was a decent value for the money, the only thing that was subpar was the service. We sat at our table for probably 10 minutes before our server came to see us. he only checked on us maybe twice during our meal.

    I thought I had the best steak ever until I had a steak at Repeal Oak Fired Restaurant. I can't describe how good that steak was, but now it's the best steak I ever had. Our waiter was super nice, friendly, and a good server as well as the manger that night. Definitely recommend everyone to go and try the steak. Yummy!! Definitely returning

    The food and service were outstanding. Abraham our sever was very good. Just enough attention and he explained things very well. I had the Dover Sole and it was one of the best I ever had. The presentation was perfect! my friends all had the bone in filets, they all enjoyed them. One friend had the French Onion soup and he loved it. Next time I am back in Louisville, I will go back.

    Oh my goodness. 4 of us dined in the terrace portion of the restaurant. Drinks were fabulous and each entree was absolutely delicious. We had Salmon, Steak Tartare, bucatini, and the filet. Best steak I ever tasted! But the real star was Michael who was our server the bartender. He was so knowledgeable and engaging and made the entire evening an experience we’ll talk about for a long time. Can’t recommend it enough.

    Excellent food, drinks, and service. We sat up in the terrace, it was warm, but not bad until it started filling up with people, but by then we were on our way out (reserve early to miss the crowds! Our reservation was at 5pm). Clay was our server and had extensive knowledge of all things bourbon. He was very attentive and polite, gave great menu ideas, and went out of his way for us. We have added Repeal to our special occasion list of great places to eat!

    After having appetizers and drinks the night before we thought for sure this would be a great experience. We were wrong. The starters were good, my husband’s was great. The waiter we had was great despite being overly chatty. The main course however was a train wreck. I ordered the lobster with added on shrimp. My lobster was raw. I’m not talking about slightly underdone, I’m talking raw. They offered to refire one and 20 min later it came. By then my husbands food was half done and getting cold (mainly because he didn’t want to eat without me). His ribeye wasn’t impressive for $88. We truly expected more. We had reservations for this Sunday to bring friends and cancelled them.

    Our experience was a mixed bag. First the good: the steaks were excellent and the service was top notch. Not as good: the rest of the food was fair to poor. The lobster bisque barely had lobster and was not very good. The side dishes were costly and not enjoyable with the asparagus super thick and stringy, the mushrooms not good, and the mashed potatoes nothing special. The restaurant was very busy and loud. Although we enjoyed the steaks, the overall experience was just average and not a great value with the high prices.

    We stayed at the hotel and the restaurant was recommended by a tour operator I was speaking to ahead of the trip. The meal did not disappoint Everything was excellent food; service. Top quality steak. I eat often at NYC high end steakhouses. The only downside- was I feel this may have been pricier somehow. All of the other restaurants I ate at while down here were 20-30% less than my normal in NY area. Brunch/breakfast service was good as well. I would definitely recommend
