Great food!! Service was a little slow, but food was great! Pork belly and vegetarian meatloaf was excellent. They also have frozen mint juleps as well!

We had excellent service and food. Six people ate and everyone thought their food was outstanding. Everyone’s food was very fresh. We will definitely go there again on our next trip to Louisville.
