Stopped in for a quick bite and drink after viewing the eclipse while in Louisville. Great beer and whiskey selections and food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and good with suggestions for us to try.

Although I prefer the cozier outdoor dining at Molly Malone's, the food at the Irish Rover is better...much better!!! The Rover has an extensive menu and everything is excellent! The best Irish food I've had anywhere.
