Great food, excellent service, fantastic cocktail! Little loud in our area because of a large party. Highly recommend! I had fish that was a little undercooked & it was taken, cooked to perfection & returned to me quickly. Love this place!

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.

Great atmosphere. Food portions were very good, especially the salads. My burger was under cooked but still very tasty. Service was excellent. Even with the limited menu what they serve is good and done well. I would recommend this place.

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.

Our meal was fantastic, and they have the most comfortable booths I've ever sat in. However, our waitress was absent, and that made the meal difficult. At one point, she walked to our table to ask if we were ready to order, pulled out her pad after we said yes, and then just walked away. Couldn't get refills. We were there two hours, and the first third was waiting to place our order. The quality of the food and the general setting made up for it, but it started out as a very frustrating experience.

This restaurant is loud, so if you want to talk to your party, it is difficult when the place is full. Food was average to good but overpriced. My $24 dinner did not come with a salad or bread basket. Drinks are quite pricey too - $12 for a glass of wine and $8 for a craft beer. The good side was that our reservation was ready on time and our server was friendly. Probably will not return anytime soon though.

I had the Flat iron steak. It was cooked perfectly and the corn on the cob was delicious. I was debating on either the steak or the NA hot brown I’m glad I chose the steak. My friend ordered a burger she said it was very good. Her husband ordered the hot brown, didn’t like it so much. We ordered dessert, the chef’s whim which was pineapple upside cake with mango sauce. It was enough to share but we all thought it was dry, cold and had no sauce. We told our server and exchanged it for the brownie with salted caramel ice cream. Awesome!!!
