Home cooking!

Best fried chicken in Jeff. They have great vegetables. My favorites are mashed potatoes & gravy, breaded tomatoes, Lima beans and pinto beans. Corn bread is good too reasonable prices. My friend won't eat their because they don't wear gloves or wear hairnets but the food is worth it to me.

From the name, one might picture an elegant supper club, with a view of the moonlight dancing over the river. You would be wrong. You can't really see the Ohio River from here, and it's more of a working man's quick lunch cafeteria, located in the working part of town – the "by the river" part. Food is average to... More

This restaurant is cafeteria style service. Lots of good home cooking (read that as fried) though they do have some healthy options such as baked fish if you wish. The fried chicken and Manhattan are probably my favorite dishes. I've only been here for lunch and their prices are a bit high for lunch, Chicken with two sides and a... More

Ann's serves food cafeteria style. You see what you get off of their steam table. My catfish plate was good but my wife's fried chicken was cold and just so-so, Sides were overcooked or just too long on the steam table. There are a lot better places to eat at in the area!

I work & stay in Louisville regularly & have made Ann's by the River a regular home away from home dinner spot. Although the furnishings are nothing fancy the cafeteria style serving, the homestyle preparation and the relaxed no-bother atmosphere are all very appealing to me. After a long day I come to Ann's for consistently tasty dishes, without wait... More

Great home cooking! Great service! Would definitely return. Fish and chicken are great! Homemade desserts are definitely a plus!

We eat out quite often and was told that Ann's By the River was a great restaurant. So a friend and I went there about 4:15pm. We ordered catfish which was lukewarm and tasted as if it was left over from lunch. We were given cornbread pancakes which were curled up around the edges from sitting there for so long.... More

On our way out of Louisville, we ran across Ann's and decided to stop and eat. We are so glad we did, it was wonderful!

We were pleased to see deviled eggs as a side because this is something usually reserved for family gatherings. Catfish was great.
