Very nice

Went for the Hot Brown. They should call it the Yum Brown. Very very good. Went for lunch and it was casual but yet if you wanted to fit the elegance of the hotel you could do that as well

Relaxed atmosphere. Luxurious surroundings prompt service and good food. I always get a blueberry pancake. Very good. For my second breakfast here this time I got an omelette. Very nicely done. Potatoes were great and the orange juice was fresh squeezed. This is a very good option.

Since we were tourists in Louisville, we had to get a Hot Brown. It was way better than anyone expected it to be! A lot of times, you hear the big hype and then it turns out to be a big let down, but not this time! Big slices of roasted turkey breast and a delicious mornay sauce. We made... More

Ponies, paddocks, bourbon and the HOt Brown; all you need to know about Louisville. Don't leave town without chowing down on the hot brown sandwich at the Brown Hotel's J. Graham Cafe

The J Graham has a wonderful assortment of items to choose from and not your usual buffet choices but each a unique creation. Every item was delightful. Service was excellent and attentive.

You simply must try the Hot Brown, their breakfast specialty! In addition, all of the breakfasts that I had were delicious, the coffee was great, and the service was impeccable. The servers were attentive and helpful, even with driving directions and other tidbits of information.
