My wife ordered the wings for me with garlic fries and wow were the wings and fryies good. The wings were the best I have ever had. I think they were called lollipop wings with bourbon hot sauce because they had a handle on them...More

We stopped in for lunch and authentic Kentucky Hoy Brown. Amy was our server. She was the best. I had Ali Smash, genuine cocktail. Very good. Lunch buffet amazing, included desserts. Plenty of food. Atmosphere was relaxing and elegant.

The lobby bar drinks are on the middle to high end for drinks in a hotel. The biggest problem I had with the bar was that the seating other than at the bar was old fashion to fit with the décor but quite uncomfortable.

The food was wonderful. The Lobster Mac and cheese was to die for. The bar also has bourbon tastings for very reasonable price too. It gives you a little old world atmosphere. Overall must try place!!!More

We had drinks and a meal in the lobby bar area. Piano player in a gorgeous turn of the century hotel is as good as it gets for ambiance. Drinks were good, but a little pricey. The hummus plate would bring me back repeatedly.

I went because of it's iconic status as The Brown Hotel. I was surprised at how small the bar actually was but found out it came out of someones home. The barkeep poured me a stiffy Crown on the rocks. We walked around the lobby....More
