Wasn't thrilled about sitting outside because we were just on the sidewalk not on the patio and we weren't told when we made the reservation that it would be outside. Food was good but not outstanding but it was very reasonably priced. Our server was very sweet but nothing came to the table too quickly.

Out first time here and it was awesome! Excellent service, excellent food, and excellent atmosphere! The truffle fries were delicious. I had the blended burger and my husband had the po' boy- both excellent! We will definitely be back when we're in the area.

Consistently one of our favorite places to eat. The Steak Frites are fantastic. They have the best mixed drinks around. The Grocery is one of my favorites. Great wait staff too. Large outdoor seating area and open bar too.

Probably the best New Albany has to offer (that's saying a lot as there some very nice places to dine in this River Town) - my dining partner commented he had just eaten the best burger in his life - I had an Impossible Burger which very good.

Food was a little cold when it came out (this is unusual... we go all the time and that’s a first). Atmosphere was terrific. Had a little wait for our seats but we were being particular about where we sat an they took very good care of us. Celebrating our anniversary and they surprised us with cake and ice cream. Very nice night.

My special... NY strip was fine, but had no flavor. Same with the Brussel sprouts and green beans.
Husband said his fish and chips was really good.
We were seated at a high top in front of the men's restroom. I don't think this table is normally there, hope it's just a covid thing...but it shouldn't be just FYI.
Our waitress was fabulous and honestly the best thing about our dinner.

My wife and I come here often and they never disappoint. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. There are many seating options (indoor/outdoor/garage area) and they are all very comfortable. The drinks are great and the food is delicious.

We love The Exchange. It’s one of our favorite places. We haven’t been ‘dining in’ at many restaurants lately but we felt very comfortable with the Covid control efforts in place. Plenty of distance between tables and good staff compliance with masking. The food was delicious. We had scallops & the swordfish special. Both were outstanding. We just have to plan the budget ahead for a super-great meal with outstanding drinks that generally runs at least $130+tip for the two of us.

The last 2 times the food just hasn't been as good. I really miss the Croque Madame. It was sooooooo good! Few weeks ago, I had the Gnocchi and I did not care for it at all. This week I had the fish and chips. The fish was gray and a little fishy! Almost seemed over cooked. Wish I had gotten the salmon. Ran it to a friend who ordered it and she said it was very good! Drinks are always awesome, at little pricey but worth the quality and creativity.

The Exchange always offers great food and service. Really appreciate the steps they take to provide safe environment during COVID. My favorite drink is their Salt of the Earth. The fish and chips are always delicious and the salads are fresh and tasty.

We stopped in for lunch and it was great! The atmosphere was warm and inviting and had lots of patio seating. My grilled cheese and tomato/artichoke soup was amazing. I had “the grocery” cocktail and it was delicious. Will definitely be back if we’re ever in town!

Love the venue. There is every type of dining experience you would want... indoor, outdoor, bar scene and private party rooms. Food was great. My husband enjoyed his burger and my short ribs were tasty. The food came out very quickly.
Only downside was service was sporadic. Drinks came after meal etc...
we will definitely try it again
