Bartenders at bar are rude. Take 10-15 minutes to order a simple beer even you are at bar, please don't ask me how long take to order the second one.

We had the chicken thighs. The sauce was sooooo good and the chicken cooked to perfection. It was served with a nice portion of romaine and red onion salad with a nice vinaigrette. I also tried the pickles pigs feet. As I am of Eastern European decent pigs feet are a delicacy the serving was delightful. Would definately come back... More

Love the honky tonk music, the working man's beers, fried oysters, chicken & waffles and the friendly service staff! This place is on our "go to" list!

Poor experience, service and food. Disappointed overall. Wait staff more interested in socializing than attending to customers. Food was average with brisket over spiced and undercooked. Price not in line with the value. Together made for poor experience.

Cool restaurant built in an old firehouse, in an emerging neighbourhood. 8 pages of bourbon to choose from, cool and tasty mixed drinks, very solid and diverse beer selection. Big portions, good BBQ and a compact but wide ranging menu. Helpful and cool staff. Lots of choices in Louisville, but this one is one you shouldn't miss.

Our tour guide at Four Roses Bottling recommended The Silver Dollar and we are so glad we came on our last night in Louisville. I had the Chicken & Waffles and my husband had a burger and everything was cooked perfectly. Our server Nick gave us wonderful bourbon tips and we enjoyed them all.

Great drinks and food menu. The beer can chicken is awesome! All 3 of us had something different and we all enjoyed it. Great ambience with outdoor and indoor spots. There's a cute dessert place across the road if you want to top off the night with something sweet!

Great experience. Chicken and waffles, fried okra, and cocktails were the highlight of our experience.

We've been visiting Louisville for years and found a new fav in The Silver Dollar. Our table had brisket, spicy chicken thighs, and chicken and waffles. Sides were collard greens and hashbrowns. Every dish was amazing. My fav: chicken thighs. Service, drinks, and atmosphere were perfect. Alex, our server, made great recommendations and made us smile from the moment we... More
