Great view of the river. You get both hot and mild salsa. Kid friendly. Not too loud. Close to other downtown activities. Accessible by boat as well. Fajitas are amazing!

I always have lousy service at this location, but I go back bc it is tolerable and I like the food, view and atmosphere. The most memorable experience was when we went in the evening near closing to have drinks. The staff was so busy with their closing duties that they just forgot about us. After sitting with our glasses... More

My husband was in Louisville, on business and we joined him Fathers Day weekend. The tumbleweed has a nice atmosphere. Beautiful view! Whether siting outside on the deck, roof deck, or inside. The service was great! We actually enjoyed our meal and view so much so, that we dined there on two occasions during our stay. The food was delicious!... More

We first went there for a drink in the bar. The were so hospitable, we went the next night for a meal. Again the wonderful hospitality and Megan the waitress was even working on her 22nd birthday. Food was excellent and they have a great selection of draft beers. Save some room for the Margarita Sundaes!

Originally Tumbleweed only had two locations in Louisville and were very good. Now that they have grown to many locations they have lost a lot of there original taste and quality. I eat at several different locations, but mostly at the Springhurst location because of convenience. There service is spotty depending on who you get that night. There Burrito's ($10.99)... More

Recently moved back to KY from TX and decided to go eat along the river and went to Tumbleweed. Let me preface by saying that my last experience here wasn't positive either, but I just didn't want to admit that a restaurant that I loved so much growing up had gotten so poor. Dishes seemed bland and prepared from frozen.... More

I was very impressed with the Tumbleweed!! The food was fantastic but even better was the great service. Donald was our server, he was fun and knowledgable. It was fast & accurate, which wasn't easy as we were a large group! I loved that it was on the water as well. I would certainly recommend this restaurant!

We had a party of 12 at Tumbleweeds on the river yesterday. We called a few hours in advance to see if we could reserve a table. We were told to call when we were 10 minutes before we were to get there. I called and was told they were currently without a wait. I said we have 12, does... More

decided to eat here since we were close and thought it might be a nice day to over look the Ohio river but unfortunately they sat us in a section where there was a new waitress. Now in the defense of Tumbleweed the waitress was new but they should have had someone with her. She didn't know the menu so... More

This was the third time we tried to eat lunch there after a formal high school function. The other two visits were average but this one was the worst. The hostess led us out to the middle of the floor and got involved with another task and ignored us. Another hostess saw our confusion and led us to a table.... More
