Restaurant close to the Marriott in East Louisville. Mussels as an entree were fabulous. The hamburgers looked great and were huge. So glad I opted for the sliders (2). Delicious and the perfect size.

Stopped in after the slugger museum tour. We had the southern lady burger and crabmeat burger both were very tasty but we didn’t care for the pretzel bun . Service was excellent. We would recommend to friends. No outdoor seating.

I ordered the B.B.B. burger and it was good. However, the portion of Pomme Frites seemed small. The server was average and could have probably been a little more attentive.

This is kind of becoming a default restaurant if you have people visiting in from out of town – everybody can find something they like and everything is good. Don’t miss the duck fat truffle fries! They are amazing!

I would say this restaurant stays close to the menu and that would mean a big "no". While they do produce good food they are as slow as a snail.

I think they will do private party type situation, but no reservations for medium size parties. We had 10 people and we could not do call ahead. We waited a good 45 minutes.
