The place has good selection of beer. They need to update web site. They don't have shepherds pie. It's a good place to drink beer and eat a burger.

The atmosphere here is truly unique. We did what most people do here...posed for a picture with the massive troll outside the restaurant. It's like a hidden away space down below street level behind the building its housed in...but you cannot miss the troll. The original old brick walls remind you of the age and history of the locale you... More

We were looking for someplace within walking distance of our downtown hotel, something simple, and a brewpub was the right level of formality. We had gotten reservations on Open Table but got to town a little early. No worries because the place wasn’t busy at 5:30 on a Friday. The space is built into a repurposed ground floor and has...

I was in the mood for a hamburger (which rarely happens) and was delighted to find this place within walking distance to our hotel and open late. The atmosphere was really cool- loved the big troll out front and the under-ground vibe inside. Our server was excellent. He was friendly, attentive and on top of things even though they were...

This place is in the basement of a building. Cool surroundings, great tvs everywhere. The fishbowl drinks are fun to share and make good pics. The food is greasy and not very tasty. It is bar food with not much taste.

The food is pretty typical bar fare - lots of grilled or fried food. This certainly doesn't bother me, but makes it an occasional stop rather than a regular favorite. The pretzels and beer cheese were delicious as was the bacon jam burger. My husband had the fish and chips, which he thought were too greasy. We were glad to... More

We have been to the Troll many times. We have always received good service and good food. The history of the pub is cool you can read about it on the menu Great atmosphere with a labyrinth feel. The wings are great a must get if it is your first time.

I was finally able to get into this place, I had made a reservation but once I got there we were the only customers in the place. However the week before there was a 2 hr wait list. Just book via thier website to be sure, it really just depends on what all is going on downtown. We ordered the... More

This was by far our favorite place to visit in Louisville! The food was delicious, the drinks were great, but I cannot say enought about the location and the service. Our server sat with us and gave us pointers and ideas of little known things to see and do while we were in town. He took the time to look... More
