Love this restaurant and the food was really good, BUT …Had reserved an outdoor table, despite cool temps and rain. No one called to say that was not possible. Arrived to learn masks were optional; we had to dine indoors; and our server chose not to mask. Not going to dine in New Albany again any time soon. Apparently there is no awareness of pandemic there.

I was taken aback by the staff not wearing masks. I felt the meal was over priced and while the food was decent, nothing special. I feel The Exchange has declined in value and overall quality. The menu is overpriced and quirky. It used to be my favorite place in town. No longer.

Large table of extremely loud and annoying patrons that were so loud we couldn’t hear the waiter or ourselves had to ask for a move. Management should have removed them from the restaurant after several warnings. Food was great. Just work on managing patrons that need removing.

Conner was great as a server. We have had the fish there many tes in the past, but this time it was bland and not very much flavor.

Our waitress was excellent. The only issues with the food was the salmon salad was very salty that I couldn’t finish it. Overall we were pleased. Wish the voodoo pasta and sweet chili salmon bowl. We went in planning to order those 2 but they’ve been removed. Good night though!

We had the best time with our family from
Georgia. After not seeing one another ride over a year, this is where we reunited to celebrate the missed birthdays.
Great food. Great people. Great town.

The food was good as always but it wasn't hot when it came out. The fries had lost some of the crispiness. The steak was cooked perfectly medium rare but was room temperature. Our server was awesome.

Our Easter lunch was very, very nice. We sat at the main bar which is our preference. The bartender was quite personable and helpful. As usual the food was excellent. We always enjoy The Exchange...

Great place in a fabulously historic building. Great wine and beer choices and food was very good. Love the indoor/outdoor atmosphere when the large garage doors are open. It was perfect weather for enjoying a great meal with a view of the bridge and passersby.

We celebrated St Patrick’s Day with great music ..that’s the noise level add. Usually it’s pretty chill and nice. They always have a fantastic selection of beers and cocktails. The theme was good and fit perfectly! I have done New Years there too and it’s always enjoyable.

A bit pricey, but the portion sizes are good for the price. The cocktail I ordered was delicious and you could tell it was hand made and not a mix. Great for a date night.

Always a treat to eat at The Exchange. Once again we were able to eat happily seated at the bar. My sweetheart, Vikki enjoyed the chop and I enjoyed the New York Strip Steak. We shared a bite of each and they were scrumptious! Our bartender, Kennedy was a delight and took great care of us. Even though we've recently moved farther away, The Exchange is worth the drive. We'll return soon...

Only down sid was ordering one medium rare and one medium filet and both coming out rare you would expect when you pay 45 dollars a plate the steaks would be cooked to perfection. Other than that our server was great and the rest of the food was delicious and well worth the experience.
