We had a great experience here. You walk to the counter and order your meal, which they cut in front of you; wide variety of BBQ sauces. Everyone in our party loved their food. Portions were huge. I had the smoked turkey, which was amazing....Drinks are offered at the bar. You can eat inside or under the roof outdoors on 4th Street Live. After eating, we took our drinks outside and played corn hole for awhile. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly. We’ll be back next time we’re in Louisville!More

This is located under the Fourth Street Live covered area. You can buy drinks/food and take them around the cordoned-off area as long as you tell them and get your drink in a plastic container. Very nice touch! The ambience is cool and the margarita...was great!More

They were out of the sauce I ordered because it was the most popular sauce. It was expensive. You order meat, and get nothing with it. No bread, and sides are ordered separately. My husband ordered pork, and it was just kind of blah. I...got smoked sausage and it was dry and tasteless. His baked beans tasted like plain ol pork and beans. My macaroni had almost no cheese in it. I wound up getting pizza after we left because I was still hungry.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Guy’s spot. The meats were very flavorful, good sides and a nice variety of fun / different sauces. They have enough space for people to feel comfortable and a nice patio area on 4th street. Chef Q was super...friendly and answered any question we asked!More

Stopped by at the end of February for a late night dinner. Restaurant was very busy and had about a 15 minute wait to get seated. We had the Brick burger which was good and The Ultimate Cobb Salad which was very good. Over all...the service was good but since we didn't order drinks, we felt our server was more interested in the other tables.More

Put Guy Fieri's on your list of "must go to's" while in Louisville,KY. Fantastic food, fun staff, fun atmosphere. 4th Street Live walk after ties it all together.

My wife and I were really excited to visit Guy’s Smokehouse. When we got there the waiter was amazing. This was our first time and he gave us a rundown of the menu, which was awesome. However, he informed us they were out of the...trash can nachos, which was a huge bummer because my wife loves nachos. I ended up getting the Ribs and my wife ordered the pulled pork. The Ribs were great, they were full of flavor, the bbq sauce was sweet. My wife’s pulled pork though was cold...which was a big negative for us. The Mac and Cheese was really good though and totally worth the two dollar up charge. All in all we would go back, it was a good place to eat and the smell when you walk in and the service will bring us to go another round in flavortown.More

We really enjoy Guy's restaurants. Boy was I really disappointed. We were a little after the lunch rush so thought it would be a good time to enjoy lunch. Not the case, our server was prompt on taking our order, from there things went downhill....When the food did finally come out it was cold, but our server didnt come back to check on our meal. Sure will think next time about eating at this restaurant or ant of his other spots.More

If you like brussel sprouts, get the appetizer. If you don't like brussel sprouts, get the appetizer. Basically what I am telling you is that the brussel sprouts are good. We sat at the bar. We got the wrong food because the people next to...us ordered nearly the same thing. They made us new food. We overate. It was really busy. It's good. Guy Fieri's name draws a crowd. That is the purpose of the restaurant.More

I have no idea... I suggest you send them an E-mail. I will say this, I am a huge Guy Fieri fan and one of my BBQ pals is a friend of his, but I was very disappointed in the three menu items I had. I would tell you what... More
