Wow. This is not the restaurant it used to be. Well, the decor is still, but the food is as degraded as the decor. The wine list used to be pretty decent, but is very small and not the best selection. Not bad in any...More

While in Louisville for a convention, we were looking for a place for dinner. From the moment we entered the establishment, we were treated like we were in in 5 star establishment. Service was friendly and great, food selections were fantastic and the owner was...More

First of all, did they change chefs, Wth?? I ordered the green chili won-tons, crab cake dinner with skillet potatoes. My favorite has always been the won-tons... they were good but used to have more of a bite to them to pair well with the...More

Family and friends gathered here for lunch after my brother's Ph.D. graduation -- and what a perfect choice. Great food; attentive service; and friendly, casual atmosphere. I ordered the teriyaki-glazed salmon, which was positively succulent. My husband enjoyed a Thai chicken stir-fry; and a couple...More

We were early for our internment luncheon but we're seated anyway and that was appreciated. We had 11 people and ordered off the menu. Everything was reasonably priced with moderately sized lunch portions.

This has been my "go to" restaurant since they opened. That's a long time to have steady service and always great food. There are never any surprises here and that's why I call it "reliable". It's probably not fair that I say all their food...More

I enjoyed the food here - ordered the scallops and grits - but the portions were small for the price I was paying. The beers were on special, so that did enhance my experience. I had a 20 oz. craft beer for 3 bucks. The...More
