Nice Brunch. Try the rosemary pork.

We were looking for Sunday Brunch and found Bristol on TripAdvisor. Nice historic atmosphere in an artsy area. Food was typical buffet fare (eggs sausage gravy bacon etc) except for the rosemary pork which took it from 3 to a 4. Very busy place in a good way.

I am from Louisville, but I attend college in Lexington. Every time I come back home, I get Theresa's Sweet Linguini from The Bristol. It never disappoints! Depending on what part of Louisville you are staying in, a quick trip across the bridge to the Jeffersonville, Indiana location is well worth it. The outdoor seating is framed in glass to... More

In Louisville Ky over the weekend and decided to find a restaurant close to our hotel. Saw this restaurant listed in the Louisville, Ky visitors guide. We needed a place that had some vegetarian food along with regular meals and this fit the bill. We had steak and my daughter had spaghetti with veggies. Very good service along with great... More

The soups were good. My friend enjoyed her salmon. We tried the wonton appetizer as were told it was a local favorite. The food was average overall. We did not have a bad experience however there really was nothing that we enjoyed so much we would crave to come back either. The restaurant seemed to have a good size lunch... More

My friend and I met there for lunch today. Great service! She had her small dog with her and we ate outside. Staff very attentive. Food came fairly quick and was delicious! Never had an empty glass! One of my favorite places to eat in Louisville, KY!

We were recommended this restauant by someone who had visited the before us. However, there are several locations to choose from for your meal. We went to the Ba rdstown road location. First thing to note, parking is limited so give yourself time to find a parking place. They do have a parking lot behind the restaurant but there are... More

The menu was promising and the service was good, but the food was a mixed bag of good and bad. The resturant is clean and reasonably comfortable. The good: - The Hot Brown. It was my first try of this classic and I loved it. - Black Bean Sour. Great warmer on a very cold day - Bib and stilton... More

We stopped here on our way home from the bourbon trail for the sole purpose of getting a hot brown and a mint julep. (Who goes to Kentucky without getting at least one of those?) It just so happened to be my husband's last day in his 20s so we also were in the mood to celebrate. We were beyond... More

The green chili wontons were delicious, but just barely lukewarm. The California club salad was really good, but that ranch dressing with cottage cheese is awful. Good think i got it on the side. The nice waitress brought me something else. The black bean soup was very good. DH enjoyed the brew selection, and I enjoyed a nice glass of... More
