My husband and I were staying in Old Towne Louisville (our 8th visit) and was looking for a day trip nearby. Shelbyville is about 30 miles away. The Science Hill Inn had been a girls school for over a hundred years, it now contains some unique shops and a beautiful,refined dining room. Eating here was like traveling back in time.... More

Eating here is like traveling back in time: elegant, slow paced, with excellent food. Most of the very attentive service staff has been here for years which is a good sign. The hot water cornbread never lasts long on the table. The hot brown is excellent as is the trout. This is a setting more appropriate for adults than small... More

I was off during the Holidays, so I called my parents and asked them to meet me for lunch, it was WONDERFUL! The staff was awesome, Arthur is on the ball, EVERY time we go here! Food is always top notch, so I most definately recommend eating here! Christmas decorations at the Gallery are very much worth checking out too!

We like the food and service at Science Hill Inn. Especially during the holidays when all the shops in the building are decorated for Christmas. It is a destination location for us Louisville folks to have a great lunch and shop for unique items as well as marvel at the decorations and antiques. It is an old time dining room... More

My husband took our young granddaughter to lunch on a Friday. It was very busy and we didn't realize we should have reservations. The staff was gracious and seated us anyway. The food was wonderful. We had salmon and hot brown. There is not a kid's menu. The only negative was the other patrons. They were snooty and rude. I... More

Not for folks on a low cal diet but if ou like Southern fired chicken and all the grits etc. it was excellent. Homemade salad dressings were great on salads. prices were from 12 to 15 dollars for lunch. Very cute historic... More

My spouse and I went Science Hill for brunch on Sunday. Service is from 11 AM to 2 PM. Reservations would be a good idea, especially later in the service. The brunch was an excellent assortment of quality Kentucky dinner items, since the midday meal was the largest meal of the day. There were several high points. The first was... More

Science Hill Inn's dining room has a great old time down-south Sunday country brunch in a 1830s building with an antique shop and patio gardens. It is a scenic 25 mile drive south-west of Louisville Kentucky. For starters, their "make it your self salad" with lots of fresh locally grown ingredients has numerous home made dressings, but the pick of... More

Very unique setting...with feel of old southern charm! Felt much like going back in time. We had a reservation & there was no wait time for seating. Waitress was extremely attentive & nice. Coke was a little flat due to the fact it was kept in pitcher on ice, but not horrible. Glasses were kept filled promptly. We had a... More

I've visited Science Hill several times and have never been disappointed. The service is always friendly and your water or coffee never goes empty. They start by bringing out warm bread and corn muffins to the table which are so good with the butter you have to try and not fill up on those. On my last visit I had... More
