I was in Louisville for a conference last week, and had the opportunity to enjoy a couple of dinners at the Blue Horse Cafe.
This restaurant is located within the Crowne Plaza hotel, close by the airport and almost directly across the street from the Kentucky Exposition Center. There aren't a lot of restaurants in the area, so I was happy to see the sign out front and the promise of a good meal.
The restaurant has a lively bar and a fairly large seating area. I was seated right away, and the server introduced himself and get me set up with a drink while I perused the menu. It's a good menu, with a nice mix of fun stuff and comfort food. I ordered a steak and a nice Cabernet Sauvignon to go with it.
The ambiance is nice. It's a good spot to unwind after a day at a trade show, and looking around, it appeared most of the clientele were (like me) doing just that.
The meal came fairly quickly, and was beautifully prepared. Delicious, actually. I had a bit of wine left, so I splurged and ordered the big chocolate cake for desert. They're not kidding - the server returned with about a pound of cake. So much for the diet - but it was fresh and delicious.
Came back the following night to try some seafood, and once again, was very pleased when I left.
Service was very good in both of my visits. The staff are friendly, and do a nice job of being attentive without hovering over you.
Reservations might be a good idea, especially if you have a large group, but arriving earlier in the evening I had no trouble being seated right away.
As mentioned, there aren't a lot of restaurants on this side of the highway so I was pleased the Blue Horse turned out to be so good. I'll definitely repeat.
