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.

    Brown sandwich was dry and not good. Fish dinner was greasy and over priced. Over all pretty disappointing after reading reviews. Bathrooms were yucky. Had to use barcode for drink list was hard to read on small screen. In closing The Server was awesome and so was the bucket of beers!! I wouldn’t return there.

    Our family at lunch here during our spring break trip to Louisville. The wait staff was indifferent. The kids Alfredo sauce tasted off. I found 2 hairs in my Caesar salad.

    Loved our visit to the Troll Pub! Had reservations so got right in on a busy night. Service was super friendly and the food and drinks were great! We came in towards the end of their night, in the end leaving us as their last guests that evening. Rather than rushing us out, the team there chatted with us about the area, suggesting other pubs and distilleries in the area not only making the evening fun, but also enhancing the rest of our week. Food and bourbon flights were great and the cheesecake incredible.

    Very cool place to go and the food was good. We were there on 2/22 at about 2:30. I don’t remember our waiter’s name but he was great!! It wasn’t busy so he took time to walk us around and give us a little history of the building…it was a nice little bonus for lunch!

    I asked the waitress for suggestions on which sandwich to get. She told me of two, and I went with the Italian sandwich. It was absolutely amazing! My friend chose the chicken sandwich, which she said was very dry. I did not care for the plain fries, but I tried my friends’ loaded fries, and they were great

    In previous visits we have had a great experience, but last night was sub-par. The hostess was curt, the server was less than attentive and the food kind of feel flat. Would I give it another chance?... maybe, but I'm in no rush to return.

    Our party was celebrating a wedding with the bride and groom there in full attire. Our server was very good at getting drinks and orders out fast, but lacked any sort of energy. Just like our party were bros getting beers. Little disappointed in that as it was our special day. Additionally, your host’s could stand to act like they enjoy their jobs. Your secret room has a fun gimmick: even if your employees have seen it a million times, they should put on a happy face for those who it is new to. We’ve been in the secret room before and they allowed us to try to open the room ourselves, rather than the employee just pulling the book and letting us in.

    The service was great! The food was good, but the fried foods were greasy. Pot roast poutine was interesting and soggy. Ketchup came in individual disposable cups, which is kind of nice in theory, but my nephew opened his, and the ketchup squeezed out and onto his clothes. It also cheapened the experience.

    Troll pub was very busy at the opening time, there was a big basketball game starting in a few hours. Right at the start of the shift I heard a number of tables around us that they were out of a number of items after the people had ordered. Very busy which is great for them, but the noise was very distracting for some. I know my wife had some issues with her meal not being hot, the rest of our food was good. Too much for me to eat after the appetizers. My waitress/salesperson was great, very quick and she alerted my family before we ordered of items that were out of stock.

    The service was amazing. Make sure you ask about the history of the building. Unfortunately, the quality of the food was a bit lacking. The roast beef on the dip sandwich made my teeth hurt :( Maybe if I ordered something else it would have been better. I am willing to give it another chance.

    This is only the 2nd time I have been here, but 1st time for the other 2 in my group. Both times I have been here, the food has been fresh and delicious. My friends enjoyed their first experience as well. I’m definitely going to have to come back again and get the poutine fries!!! The only things that disappointed me was the lack of merchandise in stock for purchase. I do recommend getting reservations if going to try to go on a Saturday if any type of event is in town.

    We got the beer cheese and pretzels. The beer cheese was the consistency of paste, but the pretzels were pretty good. I went to the restroom and one of the stall doors was missing and the toilet paper in my stall was shoved inside the feminine product receptacle. We were expecting a quaint experience and instead it was more like a fraternity basement. We decided not to order additional food. Disappointing.

    The Service wasn't good. We had to ask for refills, boxes, the check.... she never came back to ask how our food tasted. The beer cheese was very cold and reminded me of set up fat. Our burgers didn't taste good at all. Our main course took 55min to come out. We came from Indianapolis and was so excited to try this place. I was very disappointed
