As usual, the Exchange did not disappoint. Our latest visit was Father's Day where one of the specials was a T-bone Steak with Potatoes and Mushrooms. Best plate I have had in a very long time. Our waiter was outstanding and always around when we needed him. Great experience! Lyndon

Two orders of the fish, which on a previous visit was excellent, was burnt and overcooked. This was corrected by management with an offer to redo, which we declined. However he had the meals prepared and brought to us to take home as well as comping our meals. The restaurant is very energetic and noisy, but we expected that. The patio was a great place for a party of 8.

Abby was a delightful server. The food was superb. I had always wanted to try the ramen bowl. The broth was complex and delicious. The pork, noodles and vegetables were perfect. I definitely will have it again.
My lunch partner had the fried fish sandwich. WOW!! A very fresh large piece of white fish was perfectly breaded and fried, then served with cole slaw and and tarter sauce on the bun. I had to sample the fish, and it was excellent. Even the fries were way above average.
I will be back soon.

I have been many times and finally talked some friends into trying it out. Unfortunately, the food was just okay that day. Don't know why, but was very disappointed. I have always had a great meal. They even commented they wouldn't come back. :(

For my son's 16th birthday he wanted a steak dinner so we made reservations for our family at the Exchange. The food was pretty good, I started with a salad and for the main dish I had the salmon plate.
The salmon seem slightly undercooked but still had a nice flavor. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food for the most part.
The major issue was the noise level. It was really difficult to enjoy our dinner out as a family. The live music is great as was the musician but the volume was incredible. It was frustrating to not be able to converse and relax.
The Exchange accommodated us so nicely for the birthday by allowing us to bring in our cake and providing us plates, utensils and a knife. The staff really is so very nice and inviting and the manager came by and checked to see how our food was. I suppose I could have mentioned the noise level at that time but we were not going to be much longer and I hate to ask for a change that the restaraunt doesn't feel necessary.

This pub is dependably good. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a relaxing place to get some really great food in New Albany. The atmosphere is outstanding. But no matter how fun the atmosphere, no place can be successful without really good food. And they deliver on that score. Always excellent, and I’ve had numerous items on the menu over the past several years.

It's a great restaurant to have a fantastic meal, whether lunch or dinner. The menu has plenty to offer everyone, including some gluten free options. The only drawback is the lack of Vegan options, though they do have the Impossible Burger. The ambience and decor is really fresh and cool. The service is friendly and efficient. And our food always comes out fast. Overall, this is an awesome local kitchen/pub to get great food at a reasonable price. I do recommend getting a reservation though if going to dinner.
