Whew. $35 four three fish sandwiches and some fries. I live in neighborhood. Ran out at 7:30 on Ash Wednesday to get dinner. I will keep driving. Very pricey for what you get. The food is not bad but just small portions and expensive.

...to eat fried fish once in awhile. Great selection of fried fish from catfish to perch to shrimp, oysters and clams. One of my top-three favorites in Louisville.

My favorite Louisville fish diner (as good as Mike Linnig's but slightly lower prices). Locally owned and personally prepared seafood. Yes, it's all fried. But you gotta live sometime.

Food was good--I really enjoyed my fish sandwich and fries--and the hushpuppies were GREAT! But I had to ration my tea because I was not about to pay for a refill. That is just NOT the area for a restaurant to cut corners--I don't care how small you are!

I have driven past this place many, many times and was somewhat skeptical but when faced with needing to get a quick dinner in this neighborhood AGAIN, we decided to give it a try. The owner was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was great, much better than Kingfish. There are just a few... More

Price was very reasonable and food outstanding. These people know how to fry fish AND shrimp. The hushpuppies were so muchbigger and better than at a fast food chain.

OK, I have known the owner since he and I were kids. But anything you can get at a certain location on Cane Run Road is done better at Hill Street . It is tastier, less greasy -- the fried mushrooms and crabcakes are worth the stop by themselves.

Great fried fish, but definitely a hole in the wall kind of place.
