What a great place to celebrate a special birthday! Love the food as well as the beauty of the restaurant. The view is spectacular. We have watched the new bridge from start to 'almost' finish! Service is always wonderful. Katie always takes great care of us! Can't wait to go back again!

They treat each customer as if there is no one else in the building! This is a revolving restaurant so has wonderful views of the Ohio River and at the right time, the sunset. The food, although limited in choice, is exquisitely prepared and presented. Their appetizers are outstanding, the Sea Scallops with mushrooms, pureed potatoes and crispy bacon is... More

On a couples get away Louisville, my wife and I stayed Galt house hotel, where the restaurant is located on the 25th floor. First off the a part of the restaurant revolves, so get a 360 view of the Ohio river, very romantic for a couple meal. Food was kinda pricey, but taste, prep, and service is totally worth it....

The location is wonderful, the 25th floor of the Galt House. The food was great. The service was very slow, and it was absolutely FREEZING! If going, bring a sweater or jacket. It's a long dining experience, but the view was #1

We were there late afternoon so it was very quiet. The bartender was friendly, attentive, and accommodating.

We had a party of 16 to celebrate my parents' birthday's. We made a reservation so we could sit on the rotating section. Service was good and the food was excellent. They kept the buffet well stocked and food was fresh and hot. The peach muffins were fabulous. They make omelettes to order.

Biz casual atmosphere with delicious salmon, steaks & dessert. Fantastic view out this 25th floor revolving restaurant. Perfect for large group, but saw families & couple enjoying themselves as well. Extensive wine & cocktails list to complement your meal.

Solid food, loved watching the sun set from our table. The service though was slow, and we were often put on hold for another group who looked to be recreating an engagement. They demanded much of the restaurant staff's time, and that impacted our meal- what should have been a 90 minute night turned into 3 hours. We were celebrating... More
