    The music was so loud that you could hear the person next to you. This was around 7:00 on a Wednesday night. We would have stayed and had a few more beers but instead went to another place. Many other people did the same.

    Came here for a Super Bowl party. Paid $10 each for the reservation and had to be there at 4pm when the game started at 6:30. First a positive, the egg rolls were good. The rest is bad, when we arrived there was no football on any TV near us and there were many close by. The music was extremely loud so you couldn’t hear any TV and had to yell at each other. About 30 mins after we arrived they changed most of the TVs to the pregame but still no sound, only extremely loud music. We asked for a manager and he said the music was to get everyone hyped for football and they wouldn’t turn off the music until 6:30 when the game started. We came for football, not the club. The NFL pregame is what gets you hyped for the game but they didn’t plan on letting anyone enjoy that. We paid for our drinks and appetizer then left. This place is not a real sports bar. We found a much better spot about 2-3 blocks away.

    We ordered nachos & wings which were both excellent! Our server was Top Notch! Hosts at the entrance were not very helpful and seemed overwhelmed… Very disappointed with not being able to bowl due to overbooking… Bowling was our main reason for attending so we left earlier than expected to find another bowling location for everyone at our Surprise Birthday Event

    We were able to book at 6pm reservation at Sports & Social Club Louisville on day of our Pink Concert! When we arrived for our reservation, the wait time was 45 min and a long wait line. We were seated quickly and our waiter was friendly and made recommendations to us. He remained very attentive throughout the meal. We had the Quesabirria Egg Rolls appetizer and it was so delicious! I had the Pimento Burger and House Fries and the burger was cooked perfectly to my order of medium. My fries were good, somewhat on the cooler side tho. My friend had the Chicken, Bacon Ranch Soft Crunch tacos and loved them as well. We lingered at our table for quite a while after our meal and never felt rushed. I would recommend Sports & Social Club Louisville, as well as the entire Fourth & Live area!

    Simply obnoxious, it’s beyond “energetic” and tiptoes into unhealthy according to my watch’s noise monitor. The live DJ outside made it impossible to talk over the bass (and that’s literally all that came through the doors, you couldn’t even tell what song it was), our table was right next to ski ball or some other type of loud game. Skip this place unless you’re already drunk or want to feel like you’ve come from a concert catered by Reser’s.

    Live DJ was so loud that our seats were vibrating and we couldn't hold a conversation. Even our teens mentioned it was too loud. My jalapeno popper burger with fried onions had quite a few pieces of fried onion skin. It was very unappealing. For the price ($100 for four people), we didn't feel it was worth it. We'll try a neighboring restaurant on 4th Street next time.

    The Asian Chicken salad was really salty and the dressing was over powering, we couldn't eat it. The fish tacos were dry and could use some sort of sauce. The chicken caesar salad was good.

    Music was so thumping loud we couldn’t stay. We enjoy music, but it should not be painful to listen to. The wait staff was very slow. We ran over a $300 bill at our table of 8 with only 2 of us eating, we had to go up to the bar a couple times just to get a drink.

    Made reservation on Open Table several days in advance but arrived to learn we’d have a 40 minute wait. We walked around and came back and they were able to seat us. They were ‘out of menus’ but we used QR code. No server for 15 minutes. Got water and an ‘Ill be back’ Let’s just say it took a lonnnng time to be served. First item I tried to order, ‘we ran out’. 2nd item, don’t have that either. Ordered 3rd choice, which was delicious, when it finally arrived. My partner’s meal came out wrong. Burger & fries, hold the cheese was served as cheeseburger, hold the fries. We gave up. About another 15 minutes to be able to pay our bill. Server was capable and friendly, but stretched too thin. We’ll never go back and don’t recommend it.

    The host was great and sat us in the perfect spot according to a request we made, they got on certain games we asked for and were very kind. Our server was also very kind but we were a bit taken aback when the bill came. First off, we told the restaurant we would probably there for a while to watch some football and I felt like we were being rushed. The second our food was gone they took our plates & sort of prematurely brought our checks. Keep in mind, we were drinking still so not just sitting there taking up space. I understand being efficient with the dishes, but our main concern like I said was the bill. We ordered a bucket of white claws and they apparently ran out of the small cans, so they gave us large ones. Which would’ve been fine, except they did not ask if that was okay/if we wanted something else and just brought it then charged us $40 for it. I understand being out of something, but that’s double the price of what we initially ordered and it was never run by us to see if something else would’ve been preferred. The overall atmosphere was fun, but we were pretty thrown off by this situation.

    Just wanted a quick place to get something to eat and drink before a concert. Service was a little slow and one of the orders came out incorrectly. Then waited 20 minutes or more and correct entree never came. Asked server to just cancel if everyone else had eaten and we were ready to leave. Food wasn’t anything special and a tad overpriced. Out of what was ordered the Popper burger was the best.

    Zero stars. Avoid at all costs. Not even if you're a tourist stuck in the area and just need a sandwich. Louisville is filled with incredible service staff, this place must hire from somewhere else. Had a reservation for 7 people. We got sat at a long high top in front of a bowling lane that had 4 chairs. Hostess said she would "try to find more chairs". When asked if we could change the TV above the bowling lane to a game we wanted to watch we were told "we don't change TVs". At a sports bar. What? We decided to leave instead of standing at a dirty high top watching Law and Order because they "don't change TVs" Hostess was incredibly rude and should consider a new profession.

    This place was by far the worst place I’ve ever been to. All of the employees would rather talk to each other than to help customers. Our waitress told us it’s easier on her to not split checks instead of asking us how we want bills split, told us a bucket of beer had six beers in them but they only had five in them and she just said oops my bad, told us there were no bowling lanes available even though over half of them were empty. When asked for our check, our bill was over $125 for just one round of drinks, never included an itemized list which realizing now included gratuity and we then tipped her on top of that. Terrible place, terrible service, terrible experience.

    No very impressed, the key features that drew our attention we’re not available. Not sure why it wouldn’t have been noted for us to be aware because we would have chosen somewhere else. The foot was ok, nothing great especially for the price. I dinner for 2 adults and 2 kids was over $100 when we walked out of average at best food.

    Went here to have lunch and bowl. Party of 13 for a birthday. We had a reservation that we made a couple weeks in advance. The bar tender ended up having to wait on our table. She was good, but told us a few of the lanes are broken. She said the table next to us has the option to bowl for the next 4 hours, so we can’t bowl. Very boring place. No music playing. Pretty quiet and boring. Flat bread pizzas were good, but Caesar salad was dripping with dressing. This was the only place that we wish we would have skipped on our weekend trip to Louisville

    Food was undercooked, sent it back, asked for a different item. The check was not correct and was charged with extra meals. Long wait for food. Server worked hard and tried to accommodate. Bottom line our entire party did not have a positive experience as everyone had either a food or check issue.

    2 Lanes were only available, when asked why the response was given in a defensive tone. Young lady reported “they don’t work”. Ordered food- food took 1 hour to come out. Our table was given a round of drinks for the inconvenience, our waiter was wonderful and was literally the only reason we stayed. Would never recommend this place or be back.

    The sports bar, music, tabletop and video games, and overall vibe of the Sports & Social Club is wonderful. The lack of honoring reservations and poor customer service is a downfall. Great venue, but staff needs to be more attentive to paying guests.

    Made this reservation over a week ago. Arrived at 722 for a 730 reservation. The disinterested waitress came to door upon us entering and said can’t help you the kitchen is closed. I asked how could that be when my reservation was in 8 minutes. She abruptly walked away from us and seemingly headed to the kitchen. Another waitress came to us to tell us that sometimes they decide to close early. I said you decide to close early when you have reservations pending? She indicated that their iPad has been broken so they don’t pay attention to open table. Open table should remove this restaurant from scheduling capability.
