Ate here with my daughter who lives in KY. The food is fine -- perhaps not outstanding -- but the view of the river is outstanding and would bring me back.

We ate here with friends. it is very kid friendly and has a Great view of the river. Lots of draft beers to chose from. The Menu is standard tex-mex with some unique options. The enchiladas were ok, but the Mango chicken salad was very flavorful. Service was fine. The building itself looked like it was in need of some... More

We ate here at the recommendation of some locals we met at Church Hill Downs. This place had great food, neat waterfront seating and very kid friendly. After traveling through three states over a week long trip this was our favorite stop to eat at. See photos posted by iGrade for more details.

I recently ate here with a large group of women after a business meeting. The service was good, but I wasn't too impressed with the food. The chips and salsa were very generic. In fact, I prefer tostitos chips and salsa from the grocery to theirs. The table-made guacamole was lacking also. Everyone at the table was asking to pass... More

The Bartender was a young guy kinda quiet at first! He soon picked it up a little!! The service was good and no serious complaints at all!! Will visit again!! The food... More

I've visited this restaurant on two separate occasions on my visits to Louisville, KY. The service is always horrible. They act as if they don't care if you eat or not, and don't ask for anything special, it appears to be too much trouble for them. I believe because they have a prime river front location they don't think they... More

Tumbleweeds had been recommended to us a few years ago, so we tried it on this trip to Louisville. We arrived about 5:30, ahead of the rush, but the cavernous space was still noisy and hard to carry on a conversation. I wish more restaurants would put a little effort into noise control. We had the three-enchilada dinner ($12) and... More

We were in town with an AAU Girls Basketball team. Therefore, finding a restaurant willing and able to attend to all of our tables are hide to find. Well, we found it!!!!!!!!! First of all, the A/C was working and felt wonderful compared to the outside temps. The teenage girls wanted their own tables outside and the parents were inside.... More

I took my grandmother and son here for Sunday lunch. When we arrived, there was no hostess in sight, and we had to wait about 5 minutes for her to show up. Upon being seated, there were 3 servers waiting on the tables in our area. All three of them looked at us and even made eye contact with me;... More

Had a family get together. Our waitress was fantastic. She made sure the food was served promptly and everything was good. I had the center cut sirloin and it was cooked just right. Thanks for the great customer service and food.
