    It was great. Pretty limited menu. Service was excellent. My chicken was raw but they made it right. Good job. Pretty decor. We ate lunch here before Hamilton at the Ky Center and they got us in and out quickly.

    We stopped in here before a comedy show, and it was a great place for a quick yet nice meal! The portions are a great size for the price. The restaurant even has a nice view! This is a great place to go if you are in need of a meal and a view!

    Walker’s Exchange is only for dinner-didn’t find that out till we arrived - for lunch! The place was called Jockey Silks & the menu was very limited! We planned based on the menu for Walker’s Exchange & dietary restrictions of members of our party. So needless to say, we were disappointed! Food we selected was overall pretty good, but pricey! Don’t expect that we will ever return to this place.

    We had the sirloin steak. Mine was cook incorrectly and it was SOOOOOO SALTY I could only eat about 4 bites. Seriously, like burn your tongue salty! Then the waiter didn't even come back to check on us for about 20 min and there was only 4 other people in the entire restaurant! My mashed potatoes also had a crust on top. They did at least take it off our bill. Very disappointed for the price.

    My husband and I ate at this restaurant on Wednesday evening and we enjoyed it immensely. Our waiter was a wonderful fellow and was so lively to talk to him. My husband and I both got the blackened seafood penne and we LOVED IT — That seafood was some of the best seafood and pasta that we’d ever had and quite some time. If we are ever staying at the Galt House ever again, we will definitely try eating here again for dinner.

    I would love to give this meal and restaurant 5 stars. The server was pleasant and attentive. The only hiccup was that, while very tasty, my chicken was not fully cooked. They did everything they could to make it right, but the potential health hazard prevents me from giving them the rating that is otherwise well deserved. An overall very pleasant experience.

    The restaurant seemed quiet and should have been;however, we were seated beside the kitchen where we had the displeasure of hearing everything, very loudly I might add, that the staff had to say. It sounded like McDonalds. Our waiter appeared young and although he was making good effort, and I realize young people have to learn, you don’t bring out the appetizers when you bring the meal. Maybe the management and staff can iron things out; but, the amount of the bill doesn’t reflect the the restaurant.

    Mother’s Day brunch - BRUNCH…. consisted of turkey, brisket, prime rib, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, carrots, broccoli, collard greens, salmon, shrimp, sushi, rolls, salad, And finally…. Scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage. We came for a brunch event thinking, Maybe biscuits and gravy? Jelly, fruits, French toast, quiche? But no- just the scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. Everything tasted pretty good …. But cold. We left underwhelmed.

    When we arrived, they said they weren't cooking from the Walker's Exchange menu (which looked nice). Instead they were cooking from the Jockey Silks menu, which is great if you're in middle school and are stoked to eat chicken strips with fries. Once we were seated, our server gave us water then promptly disappeared. We finally flagged down someone to refill our water. Instead of refilling our water he asked who our server was...like I know the guy personally or something. The decor would really excite my grandparents. Eventually we were able to order and get our food. I ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. The chicken was excellent but very small. The mashed potatoes were decent but weren't very warm and were covered in grilled zucchini (which I can't stand). I said "Wasn't this supposed to have green beans?" to which the server replied that they were out of green beans. Good thing he told me ahead of time instead of just surprising me and giving me no options. Oh wait... Through an unfortunate turn of events, we had no choice but to eat there again the next day. Hoping to save ourselves the dining experience, I attempted to call in a to go order. After several attempts to call the restaurant but only getting their voicemail box, I called the front desk to verify the restaurant was open. They said yes and offered to transfer my call to them. Again, nothing but ringing then voicemail. So I put on my shoes and walked down to the restaurant. I assumed they were so busy they couldn't get to the phone. There were literally 4 tables that were filled. When the host finally came to the desk I told him I'd been trying to call for a long time. He said it was Tuesday night and they weren't answering the phone...whatever the hell that means. In short, eating at Walker's Exchange is the equivalent of seeing a dollar on the sidewalk, thinking "Hey! I like money!", then getting destroyed by a car driven by a Walker's employee that jumped the curb.

    Would have tried breakfast but reservations said no tables were available. That turned out to be false. Small food selection at 11am; Jockey Silks menu was provided. Long wait to be seated, with reservation. Service was fair. Food was fair. Everything felt like an afterthought.

    Great spot to go to if you are staying in the hotel. Only thing negative I can say is they pick and choose what they will serve that day off the menu. Certain items they do not serve everyday. Be aware and also they might not serve their menu items it might be jockey bar restaurant next door.

    Firstly, it's important to note that their menu hours listed on their website are incorrect!! Their website state that breakfast is served until 10:30 PM! It is not. It is only served until 10:30 AM. Also, they are CLOSED from 10:30AM - 11:30AM as they transition into lunch. Also, did not know that. They have a breakfast buffet for $22 which felt overpriced considering its just your basic breakfast foods offered - nothing special or fancy. We didn't go that route. My husband got the croissant sandwich and said it was pretty good. I got eggs, bacon, biscuit and it was fine. Eggs were dry and crumbly which made me think they came from the bottom of a chafing dish. The server was kind, but not very attentive and seemed in a rush despite her only having one other table. The hostess was SOO Kind!! So very accommodating and lovely. She is the star of this visit :)

    This is a great place inside The Galt House to enjoy a meal. Great atmosphere. Decorating is great-a fun and lighthearted feel to the space- and the view is beautiful! Good choice for convenience. Service was excellent. A little pricey but not more than other similar hotel restaurants.

    Our meal was phenomenal. Service was spread thin. It took some time to seat us. Many servers walking by and not helping. Our server was very sweet but seemed to be his first day on the job. The atmosphere and food are worth the wait. Would go again and highly recommend family and friends to go as well.

    We had a reservation, and we got there before a couple who did not have a reservation. They sat them first. We received the wrong menu, so we had to wait for the server to get a new one. The pot roast was dry and the vegetables were sour. The only thing good about the restaurant was the server. She was nice.

    I was a little nervous having not been here before because of some negative reviews on open table but was pleasantly surprised!!! Our server Clara was friendly, efficient and attentive and we were welcomed at the front desk and promptly seated. We had the double stack burger (delicious!) and the grilled chicken sandwich was good too.
