Doc Crows is a tour de force. Upscale Southern meets everything else! Love it every time we go there. Great food, drinks, atmosphere - which is actually quite loud but that's the fun of it. Its truly an experience and a must!

Phenomenal selection of bourbons. Very fresh and assorted selection of oysters. All of their barbeque entrees are delicious. Very attentive bar staff. On Friday and Saturday, reservations are a must.

Me and 20-something of my college classmates had dinner here. The Pulled Pork was very good and so were the Baby Back Ribs. They also had a very good bar.

On our second visit to Louisville, we finally made time to dine at Doc Crow's. This place has it all -- great selection, unique whiskey list, tasty food, interesting decor, and an unbeatable location right along the river. Don't miss it.

Great selection of bourbons and beers along oysters. Entrees were kind of hit and miss. If the meat was cooked nicely the sides were either over cooked or under cooked. If the sides were fine then meat had problems.

OK, so we had just left Kentucky Kingdom and wanted something local, so we tried this place out. Seating was a hassle. We were placed in a booth, but asked for a table. We eventually were moved, but it seemed to "bother" the server we...More

There is a lot of construction on the street currently. When we visited the front sidewalk was torn up and there was wood planking covering the walkup. I would call as the parking and sidewalk may be difficult to maneuver... More

Reservations are advisable. Will save you a big bar bill unless you like to sit and watch people eat while waiting for your turn. Enjoy, Joe

You could bring a baby but it's a loud place and mostly "adult" oriented.
