When you are passing through a city at 9 o'clock at night, it's hard to know how to get a feel for the place. We got lucky when we picked Mike Linnig's for supper, I think. The food was fresh, tasty and piping hot, and the service was quick. But the atmosphere was the best part. We didn't have time... More

For some reason we only seem to get over here once a year. We miss them being at the State Fair or that would be twice. Everything is good and there is plenty of it. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Great Louisville tradition!

We got there right at opening. Thank goodness cause within 15-20 minutes of being seated it was full. They line was long to get a table. I understand why now cause the food was great. Our waitress Julie was amazing. She was on top of everything and super friendly. Food came out fast and never waited for refills. As an... More

Highlight of our trips to Louisville is at least one meal at Mike Linnigs. Great menu, great facility, great staff and great consistency from year-to-year. Core is built on a piece of white fish that I have never seen anywhere else. Size by itself is a meal and they give you two for a "sandwich." Locals know a single fish... More

First of all this place has a terrible setup for waiting to be seated. Most places have a hostess take your name, give you an estimated wait time, and let you leisurely wait. Here you stand in line wondering how long this is going to take or even if your in the right line. You are in the way of... More

Last night I hosted two of my friends at Mike Linnigs. We drove from Indiana, across the Sherman Minton bridge (no tolls). It was a pleasant 15-20 drive. The roads have improved dramatically over the years. This place is likely best known for its outdoor, beer garden atmosphere, throughout the warmer months. Being February we dined indoors. The menu is... More

This is a casual dining restaurant that is almost famous for their fried seafood. If you don't get here early on a weekend, you are sure to have a long wait. It is worth the wait. The price of the Seafood Order looks a little high, but when you see how much food you get, you'll think it was a... More

My husband and I visited for our 26th wedding anniversary. The place was packed! We stood in line 45 minutes to be seated. Normally, we would not wait that long but had heard so many good things about this place we decided to wait it out. The food was hot and very good. The portions were huge and the service... More

The best fish place in Louisville. Starting their 93rd season this year. My favorite is the fish plate. Two huge pieces of cod, fries, coleslaw, hush puppies, and the famous tartar sauce. It's enough for two meals. The seafood plate is another meal that will feed 2 or 3. Cod, shrimp, frog legs, scallops, fries, coleslaw and hush puppies. The... More
