Beautiful Buffet

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.

Now, I am a native of Louisville, KY, had a Dad who was a chef in the 1940's at the Brown Hotel, so I find the ambience and history a pleasing experience whenever I have a meal there in any of the eateries within the Brown Hotel. This cafe is located on the ground floor to the left of the... More

Came to J Grahams for the Hot Brown. I was not disappointed at all. The food was piping hot and DELICIOUS. The service was excellent. The coffee was great. TIP - if you are eating at the restaurant, you can partake in the free valet parking! Just be sure to get your ticket validated.

Everything you can imagine was on this brunch. The Brown Hotel is known for its Hot Browns, and it was delicious. Pastries, salads, desserts. Very tasty.

We were in Louisville so we had to try this famous sandwich. It was delicious!! Definitely not a diet item but life is too short to miss something this good!! Our waitress, Amanda, was very friendly & helpful describing the food. Free valet parking for customers of this cafe. Just get your parking stub validated by your waitress.

Panini of the day was quite good: chicken, ranch, pesto. A side of the soup of the day was just ok, the broccoli soup was missing something. Salads were enjoyed by 2 others in our party and another member ordered the club, a very large and satisfying portion.

We decided to have brunch here but were a little too early for the buffet. My husband had a traditional breakfast for $15 which consisted of 2 eggs, 2 PCs of bacon, an English muffin, and breakfast potatoes. The potatoes consisted of 6-8 pieces of potato chunks that were poor in quality and taste. I had the famous "Hot Brown".... More
