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

The Hot Brown is their signature dish; too many times I have brough an out of town guest here for this experience and the Hot Brown was not hot at all, but merely tepid. Add a tad of insult to this and the menu prices change without notice during a few times of the year, quite unannounced. Got the bill... More

Was not a fan, the food choices were very minimal on the buffet and the quality of the food was average. The syrup for the mushy pancakes was so odd, nearly perfume like it stuck with me all day (not a good thing).

I arrived without a reservation on a Sunday morning looking for brunch. The host could not have been nicer, and really hustled to seat all of us who were arriving without reservations. And the room itself is lovely. Unfortunately, the experience went downhill from there. The brunch is decently priced, but the food was a little underwhelming. The assortment was... More
