Don't go to Frankfort Ave. It's a waste of time. Most places are closed down. And the one's that are open don't have much.

I am a local and take out of town guys to the museum. Always a hit. The way the museum walks you from the first firearm to modern day is spectacular.

Maybe Bardstown Road is your kind of strip; well Frankfort Avenue is just as lively at 11:00 pm as Bardstown Road any night of the week. Do yourself a favor and check out some the little beer joints and eateries here too! Parking on side...More

This place sparkles! It is just amazing what little shops and restaurants have sprung up in this area, each one unique. From bookstores, to hair salons and arts and crafts, this is a very special area of town.

Lots of interesting shops and restaurants many of which are independent. A good way to spend an afternoon or morning.

You won't want to miss dining at least one meal along Frankfort Avenue! Google all the great restaurants, dessert and coffee spots, and stroll. Whether along the sidewalk or the water company reservoir mayors-mile track. It's old, historic, filled with shop, restaurants and culture.

We couldn't decide on Volare, Varenese, or Porchini. Varenese won! It was spectacular! Getting to Frankfort Ave. was not easy but we found it using GPS. We loved the "neighborhood" feel of it.

Louisville is an interesting city with many historic neighborhoods. Frankfort Ave. is quiet, filled with local stores, and an interesting area to explore. If you like architecture, it is fun to look at the buildings and homes. There are shade trees, benches, and outdoor cafes....More

This is late because I didn't see this but off Vernon Avenue in the Clifton area is good! Sorry for the delay.
