Best brunch ever! We drive a long way to stay at The Brown and knew we would be enjoying their mouth-watering brunch prior to leaving. It was as phenomenal as we remembered from previous visits, from the luscious omelettes to the melt-in-your mouth desserts and anything and everything (I.e., bacon, roasted potatoes, an awesome array of fruits, delicious salads, frittatas, breads, and so much more) in-between. The service was exceptional, as well. I look forward to our next visit. Soon? Yes, please!

Anchorage
About the restaurant
The Village Anchor offers a unique setting in Louisville’s east end, both for personal and professional occasions. The Village Anchor Restaurant and Anchor Bar on the main floor bring together stone, red leathers, rich worn velvets, wrought iron, dark woods, Italian appointments, Carrera marble, and the original crimson red beer taps from Churchill Down’s Silks Bar. It offers an upscale-casual, fun environment with an inimitable European flavor and exotic French flair. The lower level Sea Hag Pub offers a completely different look and feel. The “Hag” brings together brick, worn woods, hand-wrought iron, stone, and copper. The 30-foot copper bar with built-in ice troughs chill your favorite brew or wine.

Please recognize that we do our best to accommodate patio dining reservations, though seating is based on weather and availability.

An email about a ribeye steak special led to an impromptu Tuesday evening out. Overall, a good experience. My salmon dinner was outstanding. My husband’s steak was”okay” according to him. Service was slow, but excellent. The delay was likely a kitchen issue, as they were quite busy.

Captain's Quarters a historic restaurant in Louisville overlooking the Ohio River at Harrods Creek serving a wide range of seafood, steak, sandwich and salad options. With all of its meats and fish handpicked or market fresh there is plenty of dishes to choose from that will suit anyone's tastes. There is also a full bar that serves a range of cocktails, martinis and wines that will complement the meals at Captain's Quarters. While most popular in the summertime with outdoor decks, the cozy indoor views in the winter can be spectacular.

Our server, I think her name was Shana or Shawna, not certain, however she was perfect and asset to your serving staff. She was kind, friendly and extremely efficient and attentive. Our drinks were excellent from bar, not too strong or too weak, just right. The food was really fresh and good, price point was good as well. I did tell our server when she asked if my friend and I were celebrating, I told her it was my friends birthday, because there were gift bags on table, and that she had never ever been to Captain's Quarters. I was a little shocked she later did not offer my friend a complimentary dessert for a birthday gesture. Maybe she isn't allowed. Anyway, the only thing that was not good were the wooden dining tables are so sticky like syrup was all over them. I think your staff over time have cleaned the tables with something that has made the lacquered wood extremely sticky and tacky. We had to lay the napkin on table to lay our forearms on them so we couldn't feel the table. I even mentioned that to our server. She agreed. So, That was a turnoff, but other than that night was good. I do think your dining room could use a more modern update.

We enjoyed the Father's Day buffet. Great selection of foods to select from. I was pleased with the appetizers in the center section table, cheeses, olives, and the fresh fruit was wonderful.

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.
