    Took well over an hour to get our entrees which were cold and not so tasty unfortunately. Our appetizer was good, but the quality of the cut of the steaks was poor for $60 and sides cold. Our waitress was minimally attentive and first statement to us was it had been a busy hard night, although much of her time was spent standing outside the kitchen talking with staff. Management did come by and were checking on tables as we clearly weren’t the only ones having difficulty, and did offer to comp desert which we took to go. We had an 8 pm reservation and left after 10. I rarely leave poor reviews because my husband is a chef and I waited tables, so have compassion in general, but this was a truly disappointing experience.

    The breakfast was good and lived the location easy to get to in the hotel we were staying in. I was excited about the breakfast buffet and it didn’t look as good as the individual menu items so we went that route. Service could’ve been better for the low amount of people dining.

    We came for our anniversary. My fried chicken was red on the inside. Mashed pot looked and tasted like they were made weeks ago and warmed up. I couldn’t eat anything on my plate. Server only checked on us 2xs and we were there an hour. We had to ask for refills. So disappointing

    Someone needs to train the hostess on how to deal with a line for guests. If the restaurant 'closes' at 10:30 am. for breakfast, then close the door! Otherwise when guests approach register there's no one to wait on them or the hostess says < We don't open for lunch until 11:00 am." and is rude.

    Why does the restaurant have such a grumpy and inhospitable hostess at the front desk? She was borderline rude yesterday, closing the doors to the restaurant while people were waiting. The place was empty but she kept saying "We don't serve lunch until 11:00 am. so she pushed people out of waiting area and pulled doors shut. There were people eating inside who then were leaving and they pushed the doors back open. The hostess then shut the doors again and this went on and on. This was the third time we've been at the restaurant and this has happened where the hostess was rude and inhospitable. Someone needs to make changes. If there were more places to eat on Sunday in downtown louisville then we would have gone there.

    Waiter didn't know what an Arnold Palmer iced tea was. Took a long time to get waited on. Food was fine. Chips came with sandwiches; had to pay extra for fries. For the price, it seemed like fries could have been an option without paying extra. The chips were Saratoga chips and weren't that good. We wanted to be with our other 3 family members, but Open Table didn't give us the option of 5 people in our reservation. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we found that our other 3 family members were at a table that would have easily seated 2 more people. We have eaten there at other times. The food is good but a bit pricey probably because it's in a hotel and are paying for the convenience of not having to leave the premises.

    For a conference with numerous people for a $20 dollar buffet you would think it would be more than cold tomato soup 1/2 a grilled cheese, 1/2 a club sandwich and very limited salad bar. Had dinner there last KSBA conference was excellent. But they need to figure out something for next year. One suggestion they need to open the other buffet to take take down the long lines. More options overhead one lady say she was allergic to tomatoes. Just a very very disappointing meal and service. I’m suggesting that it is not an option next year for us unless there is a change. Plus for $20 where was dessert? At least the drink was included but couldn’t get a refill. Had to wave several waitresses down to get a refill when we finally did. Had to ask for spoons. Were we supposed to drink the soup? Then had to flag the waiter down again for the check and then she forgot to bring our cards back. Again very disappointing.

    My Wife ordered the shrimp and grits. The grits were very dry and only received a few shrimp literally. I ordered the $15 personal pizza known as the hunter. The menu stated that a couple of meats were “spicy” which was false. The toppings were good. The crust was good. The sauce on the other hand had zero flavor whatsoever. The hostess and staff were very nice and friendly, but had to signal our waiter a couple times for refills to be pair. It was a little bit busy.

    We had a reservation at 5:15 PM… We were seated five minutes early but it took 15 minutes before anyone acknowledged us at the table. It was odd because there were several waiters and waitresses standing around talking, but nobody even brought us water. Once the waitress came to our table, she was very attentive and we had good service and a great meal. Would definitely come here again if staying at The Galt House!

    We are staying at the hotel for a conference and there was a huge line waiting to be seated before the doors even opened. The servers prioritized seating those who had reservations even though the line was massive before us. The service was quick and the food was exceptional. The quality of the oven fired pizzas and the hamburger we ordered were way above what we expected. I have already made reservations for another meal here during our stay.

    Went for breakfast. Decided to have the buffet because we were short on time. The food was what you would expect from a buffet, not hot but had a fine selection. Waited 30 minutes for our check, asked the hostess to help locate our server. Took an additional 10 minutes once we spoke to the hostess.
