Exchange has awesome food and fresh and modern atmosphere. The wait staff is very well trained and friendly. You always come to a restaurant to taste the food, but you return because of the service. I will return here.

Live singer/guitarist was very good but we couldn't hear each other at the table. Steak Frite was excellent as was the burger. Service from Connor was spot on. Attentive and engaging. Looking forward to our return.

The whole meal was outstanding from start to finish. Sat on the indoor patio, which was perfect on a fall night. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and really forthcoming with good recommendations. Beers were cold with clean lines on draft and the food was fantastic. The best tater tots we’ve ever had and it’s great you can sub out the impossible burger on any of their burger options.

Really enjoyed our drive to New Albany, including our lunch at the Exchange Pub + Kitchen. My blueberry and Brie grilled cheese was delicious, and my husband’s cheeseburger had goat cheese and a fried egg. Frites were a bonus. Would recommend this spot as a neighborhood gem, and worth the drive.

This place is consistently the best restaurant in The area. The service is great, the food is great, and the live music they have on certain nights is never too loud or disruptive. It always has a great atmosphere. I can’t recommend it enough

Excellent atmosphere! We sat outside and it was a lovely, fall evening. The only criticism I have is the staff was not that friendly. No smiles on anyone and the hostess didn’t even greet us, just stared.

The menu had several appealing choices. Our server walked us through items we were interested in and the execution in the kitchen was outstanding. Their take in a “Hot Brown” with fried chicken / green tomatoes was off the charts. The ambience was really cool and we highly recommend this place.

We had never been before. We choose outside dining because it was a nice evening out. The benches were surprisingly comfortable. I thought the wicker would be hard and stuff but it was quite nice.

The had live music. It was pretty loud at first but a manager spoke with the gentleman and he turned the speaker towards the road. At that point the setting was very pleasant. A very nice cozy place to eat. (Outside)

The food was very good. I got a burger, others with me got Steak and fries and fish. Everyone enjoyed their food and I actually tried the steak dish from my wife’s plate. Very tasty meal all around. The price is a bit elevated. But this may be common as we don’t dine out at non franchise places often. But because of the price this restaurant would be more of a 1-2 time a year special occasion visit rather than a normal spot.

The service was fine. It wasn’t something that I’ll remember in a month. But that’s not a bad thing. Typically when you remember service it is a poor experience and being that I was there visiting with people I only see 1 or 2 times a year it was nice that the server wasn’t all over us.

All in all very good food, I would definitely recommend it if you don’t mind to spend a few extra bucks this is a great place to go.

I wish the waitress would have asked if we wanted straws or not. She brought out glasses of water with straws already in the cup. Other than that my experience was great. The food was very good. It is pricey, but every dish we got was a large portion. I really loved the ramen!

Great food, service and atmosphere! Highly recommend. I’ll go back again, several items on menu I still want to try. If you’re from Louisville like I am, well worth the trip across the bridge. Cool patio area too.

Been waiting to eat here based on other people’s recommendations. Excellent and will return. Both food and the house cocktails are great. Shout out to the crab stuffed grouper and the Brussels sprouts! And The Drink With No Name.

We ordered too much food because everything sounded so good! Our waiter was great with prompt service and gave recommendations that we liked. He came back and asked if we we needed anything. The food was delicious and our portions were big. We highly recommend the short rib dishes, the salmon and the burger. Will be back to try more!
