The Troll Pub opened on October 19th 2011, underneath the 2nd Street Bridge in a 135 year old space directly next to the YUM Center on historic Whiskey Row. The Troll Pub is a subterranean retreat that features a Gastro-pub style menu with a wide selection of great tasting food items, craft beer, local artwork, and an overall atmosphere unique to Louisville. We are just blocks from the Louisville Convention Center and only steps away from many of the hottest attractions and hotels situated downtown. Just look for the Troll on the corner of 2nd and Washington, he will show you the way.

    Had reservations for a group of 10 for a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was very busy with post graduaton traffic but table was ready upon arrival. Much larger inside than you would think. Server Crystal(she was a great server) was quick to welcome us and start with drink and appetizer orders. Food was all good. Pretzels/beer cheese and wings appetizers were perfect. All the meals were great as well. I would highly recommend them.

    We had reservations at 6:30 for my daughters prom didn’t get a server til 6:40 he was rude and threw straws at us. Took forever to get refills. Our food came out in 3 interval’s. There was only 6 of us 4 got it then 10 min later 1 and then 16 min later the last one. Didn’t seem to care that we were there. Food was VERY small portions as well, ordered burgers no buns and it was the size of egg glad we ordered a salad. We won’t be back and it’s sad cause could be a nice date night!

    Ambience of site was fabulous. Very spacious w character everywhere. Repurposed hardwood tables and off kilter alignments just breathed history. The food was quickly served (fleur de lis frence dip and salad and hamburger), but cold and inexcusable for a 10-yr old establishment. If food had been hot, place would get 5-star….waitress was very friendly and quick to reconcile……

    Upon arrival things seemed normal, however once seated it went downhill really fast. Tyler was our waiter, we had a coupon for free appetizer but was told we could not use it because of the holiday… we were there for my birthday and Mother’s Day. Then we ordered drinks o ordered a typical strawberry margarita which I was told they couldn’t make they had no strawberry liquid… could not order Alfredo they were out of Alfredo sauce, then after ordering drinks were told the bar is on 15 min wait….. we did however get those drinks and went ahead and ordered more at which we were told the bar was closed they had no dishes to serve them in. I understand it was Sunday of Derby weekend but someone did not plan accordingly. I ordered the Philly cheesesteak sandwich and asked for no mushrooms, I received a hoagie with steak and provolone cheese not hot or melted, no onions, no banana peppers nothing else on sandwich. Needless to say several people were turned away because the bar was closed and we won’t be back. It was the weirdest worst birthday/Mother’s Day dinner ever!

    Wow the food was bad…. And super slow and inconsistent. My wife got her pizza 20 minutes before sandwich which is just annoying…. then when my cheesesteak came out it was pathetic, mostly missing the steak and her pizza was basically ketchup with some shredded cheese on toast…. Un Good all around. They were also out of all of their white wine and a fair amount of their beer.

    This is primarily a sports bar? We had a 6:15 reservation- place was empty - we were sat in a dark room with 4-5 other tables. The food was all frozen, pre packaged and not very good. My friend had a steak sandwich and couldn’t eat the meat was grey, tough and chewy. I had the fish sandwich- which was actually good- fish was fried perfectly and hot but the fries were cold crinkle cuts? The best thing here were the fried pickles . Make sure you have a gallon of water nearby because they are SALTY Better choices in Louisville wish I had made one

    The food they had was good, but everything we tried to order, they were out of! No salads or fish and certain kinds of chicken. Very frustrating. Only one server for the entire place.

    Chili was Luke warm. Veggie pizza had too much cheese not enough veggies. Pizza was not hot, the crust was reminiscent of frozen pizza and was pricey for the poor quality.

    What a fantastic dining experience! Our server was very helpful in offering suggestions for food as well as bourbon options for the drinkers in the group. The best way to describe the food is comfort food. We were hoping to enjoy some of the amazing dessert options however the food portions were so generous we did not leave any room for dessert.

    Do not come to this place for the food. The beer list was good. But all 8 of us in our party thought the food was terrible. The meat was like deli cold cut quality. The food was all cold with very little flavor other than heavily salted. The spicy pasta was mostly greasy with an indistinguishable weird spice flavor. The burger tasted frozen and dry. Maybe locals know to only come for beer & not food.

    Aside from the fact that it took over an hour before we got served, (that happens when you’re short staffed), everything was excellent. Hopefully people will soon want to work for a living again.

    Service was slow and not accurate. Had to wait 35 minutes to get my drink. Condiments for burgers came out 20 minutes after the burgers. One of our guests received their meal 15 minutes before the other guests got theirs.
