As a patron of the Rover a few times a year I felt it overdue to make a review! What you will find at the Rover is very cool, that is if you like historic buildings old floors and a bar that doesn't have a 72" TV. In short everything about this place oozes neat with a cool story. I... More

We appreciated the extensive menu AND the lively, homey atmosphere at the Irish Rover. Our party of 10 had a reservation on a Friday evening, and was seated right away. We ordered 3 tasty appetizers (Bubble & Squeak and brie were the favorites) for the table.The chicken, apple & walnut salad was heavy on the chicken/apple/walnuts and VERY light on... More

On a recent visit last week, my husband ordered his usual, the fish and chips, and I tried the Prawn Cashew Salad for the first time. Accompanied by their homemade bread and real butter, lovely selection of beer, warm ambience, with owner Michael holding... More

It's far from the best Irish/British Restaurant I've been to but it's the best in Louisville and always an enjoyable experience.

We had just left a concert and wanted some place different and comfortable. We decided on the Irish Rover. The Pub area is spot on for an Irish public house. We were seated in the main dinning area. The historic building and charming decor and traditional Irish music really set a relaxing mood. The staff was friendly and attentive. We... More

Very nice atmosphere in a historic building with a relaxed outdoor dinning area. Nice food selection and very reasonable children's menu. I have always enjoyed everything I have ordered here, especially the Guinness on tap. I would recommend this location especially if you enjoy Irish food.

Irish hospitality, charming and fun. Great beer/whiskey selections. Not just trad. Irish fare. Interesting eclectic menu. Service and food were excellent. After a long day of driving our family loved it.
