We went here on recommendation of our seminar host. The food was terrific and the service -- Brendan -- was truly attentive and informative. Bistro 301 is just a short walk from the hotel at which we stayed. We could not have been more satisfied!!!

This is a great place to eat when you visit Louisville. We went for dinner and drinks. Had a bourbon flight and the fillet. Everything was great and I thought the price was fair.

My wife and I ate here before seeing a show at the Palace. Diner was indescribably delicious. We both loved the food, and our waiter was friendly and helpful. Reasonable prices, with a good selection of Beer, Wine, and Bourbon.

The dinner choices are good and the service is fine. Clean area and restrooms. Many choices on the menu. A little bit priced on the high side, and not fine dinning. But more of between a pub and a restaurant atmosphere. So price is not...More

Stopped in for a midweek dinner and glad we did. Learned they are under new ownership and have a new chef. Everything we had was excellent. Service was great, he was very friendly, attentive and gave lots of good suggestions.

We came across this bar (on our way to another bar), and on a whim decided to stop. I am really glad we did. This simple bar had a decent draft beer selection, and a good whiskey selection (nothing like some of the others, but...More

This was our 6th and final stop of our bar crawl. I had the bourbon barrel stout and it was great. Lindsee was our bartender and she was sweet. Very nice place and location.
