Good food, friendly

We went to Boomer's on the recommendation of someone as we wandered around the downtown area. I found the staff to be especially friendly and accommodating for our party of six which included four kids. It was different and a little kitschy, but we like kitschy. The menu is limited to... read more

Boomers is about as quaint a restaurant as you can find in downtown Louisville. The decor is kitschy, but sincere in the homage to Boomer the beagle. The owner is in the front of the house, doing everything with her small, friendly staff. All that is well and good, but the food is nothing to write home about. It's just... More

We were with grown children and teenage grandchildren Everyone enjoyed a choice from the simple menu of favorites. We sat in what could have been my grandmothers dining room. Delicious chicken salad sandwich, chilli, grilled cheese, and several had the days special chicken fingers and fries. Good food at reasonable prices in homelike atmosphere. Close to bat factory museum. Do... More

The food was decent, I'll get that out of the way right away. We only order sandwiches so I can't speak for every item on the menu. Our fruit salad cup had a large sliver of metal in it, our guess was it was from the metal can the fruit came in. The menus are fill in form that you... More

Boomers is a refreshing and welcoming lunch experience. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and felt as if we were at home getting ready to sit down to a small family lunch. Boomers is named after their family's precious beagle who passed away. If you are a dog lover you will understand the decor of... More

Our family found this great little place last summer and my son wanted to make sure we ate there for lunch when we went back to Louisville this month. They had daily specials as well a simple sandwich menu and are only open for lunch but it's the atmosphere and the owners that make this place a gem. As my... More

We were on our way to Subway when we noticed this place called Boomers. We decided to step in and have lunch. It was the best experience and one of the reasons we miss the Louisville area, real down home nice people. The service was very personal, and the food was all home made just like I remember grandma would... More

Part antique store, part lunchtime cafe, plus full time law office. Very cute and quaint. "Boomer" is a beagle. Home style burgers, sandwiches and soups. The order is taken by filling out the menu sheet. If you want the daily special just write it in. Very reasonable prices.

Nothing fancy...just good old southern food. Everything here is great. The atmosphere is comfortable, food is good and plentiful and the price is reasonable. Lots of breakfast and lunch choices available and they are all great choices.

we took our grandsons here because the excellent place next door that we had been to several times was closed for the holidays. Disposable plastic plates and cutlery, canned tomato soup, a grilled cheese sandwich that was barely warm and the cheese was not melted. The hosts really seemed to genuinely want to please but were overly solicitous, while the... More
