We ate from the Saturday Breakfast Buffet. The buffet was well stocked and our service was great. It is located on the ground floor of the hotel and a convenient place to eat while staying there.

Wonderful service! Great food. Clean dining area and cozy atmosphere. Bailey was our server and I could talk with her forever. I had the famous Hot brown and if you should dine here, you have to try this. It was awesome .

We went very late in the day around 2:30p and I think they close at 3p. We went specifically to get the Hot Brown sandwich because this is where it all started - at the Brown Hotel. BTW you can also get the Hot Brown in the other restaurant here, the English Grill and in their Bar area. We split... More

Actually, I am not not sure if it's the best in town, but, we wanted to go there because this is where "The Brown" originated. We went for breakfast one morning, and oh my goodness, it was so good. We have never had a sandwich this good. My husband is not a fan of turkey, but, we went back a... More

We went for the breakfast buffet and also got great sightseeing advice from the manager there. He took the time to bring maps of the city from his office and gave us directions to the things we most wanted to see. Definitely above and beyond his duties!

When in Louisville, you have to have a Hot Brown and the only place to have one is at J. Grahams Café! The wait staff was incredibly kind and attentive. Our waiter/bartender made one of the best Bloody Mary's I have ever had (I like mine extra spicy and normally it's never spicy enough - here it was perfect!). My... More
