Would go again.

Good food, good service and average prices. We had a rehersal dinner there and they did a great job. They have an upstairs room that worked out great and they were flexible with the menu. I would use them again.

Every time I know that I'll be in the area, I make it a point to stop in at Irish Rover. You do feel like you've entered an Irish Pub when you walk inside. They have a large selection of alcohol, however, I was not there for a drink. The menu has many Irish favorites; however, most people order the... More

We visited the Irish Rover like we have on the previous two trips to Louisville. As usual, the staff and the food were great. We tried tow new fish dishes this time. They have some of the best fish and chips anywhere. Our waitress was very attentive and very personable. We shared information about past visits and shared visits in... More

Whenever I go to a new city or town I try to find those little hidden gems that everyone tells you about that aren't chain restaurants. I like to find out the stories and the motivations behind why people do independent restaurants. I spent some time and talked with the owner of this place and he's a great guy with... More

After the mostly favorable reviews, I went alone for lunch and we both went for dinner. Thought I'd get a first impression of the food before going back for what my buddy and I expected to be London pub-quality fish and chips. I ordered the smoked salmon and potato gratin and it wasn't bad, but not anything special either. We... More

Having been to Ireland quit a few times, and just back from there my wife and I were looking forward to an Irish pub atmosphere. It had it a bit, but lacked it as well. Guinness was done nice for the States and a Smithwicks as well. Fish and chips were good. My real criticism is our meales were basically... More

We were in Louisville a couple months ago and stumbled upon Irish rover. We enjoyed it so much that we came back twice during the same trip. This time on our way down to North Carolina we decided to stop in Louisville so we could eat at the Irish rover. My partner loves the Dublin Smokie. I enjoyed potato soup... More

The beer battered fish here with the accompanying dill sauce is the best in town! It's a charming restaurant where you will hear Irish music being played as you dine.

So good! I got the Fish n' chips, husband got the shepards pie, around the table was the shangarry, salmon sandwhich, bangers and mash, and lamb burger. All good reviews, all looked amazing, good service, cute environment. It is an old home transformed into a restaurant, very neat. The fish n chips are by far the best I have had.... More
