“Good atmosphere, mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The atmosphere is great. The food, just so-so. I had the chicken and waffles, which was a huge disappointment. My husband had good steak pasta, but the portion was very disappointing. We both ordered mint juleps, they didn't muddle the mint. This left a very disappointing taste in a drink that should have been very good.

“Team Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

there were 18 of us for dinner and the Manager set us up for huge success. We had a table next to the private balcony. We had 2 dedicated servers that were the best! There was a free concert that night and our private balcony seats were perfect! And the food.....the food was incredible from the apps, to the salads to the fish and steak entrees.

Thanks so much for helping our team relax and celebrate together!

“Good steak, atmosphere not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

With a name like Makers Mark, I expected this to have a bit more atmosphere relating to the brand. I went here as part of a group for a work dinner. I had the KC strip which was good--but not awesome. The decor seemed a bit more apropos for an airport lounge than a bourbon house. The KC strip was $34. I would much rather have had KC BBQ. I probably would not go again. There are lots of other great choices in that area.

“This was a big let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I would love to be writing about how great this place was... But the absence of taste and execution of presentation was quite obvious. I needed this place to rock, and it just stunk.

“Enjoyable Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Had a business meeting/dinner here with a half-dozen colleagues. Casual atmosphere and good food. Convenient to downtown hotels and Power and Light District.
