Showed up on a Thursday night after traveling all day with friends. They were no less than 45 minutes from closing but they still seated us and we grabbed some apps and cocktails. The curry mussels were literally to die for. The sauce was so...More

It's not a fancy restaurant- it's middle of the road star-wise. It has a great location, right off of Museum Rowe, perfect if you've spent some time at Louisville Slugger, Glassworks, the Frazier History Museum, Science Museum, etc. They had some fabulous home-made food. Yes,...More

The interior is very nice that showcases a very beautiful old bar. We (2) were seated quickly and had drinks from the server fast. The food is obviously mostly burgers that are large in size and made to a high standard with many different toppings,...More

I stopped in near closing time on Sunday, but was still cheerfully greeted and served. I had the lamb burger and it was very tasty. The cocktails were good--on the high end of prices in Louisville, but not outrageous. The bar is beautiful. Nice atmosphere.More

Lots. Almost all of the burgers without the bun, all of the mussels, there's a steak and fish tacos with gluten free corn flour tortillas. There's also a gluten free chocolate torte dessert!
