“Great food and service”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We had some food and drinks here after a concert. Nice ambiance and quiet. A little pricey but nice for a night on the town.

“Accommodating”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is my third hot brown experience, and the hot brown at the Brown Hotel has spoiled me for any other. I don't know how they get thick slices of turkey to be so moist. The bacon is crisp, and the toast is a perfect vehicle to scoop up any extra mornay sauce. Our server was very helpful to our party of three, letting us know about the option to each order a half hot brown. With a shared salad, it was the perfect portion. The lobby has all of the elegance of white tablecloths and a piano player but without feeling underdressed as tourists.

“A Must Do”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Following the lead of others, we went to the Lobby Bar and shared a Hot Brown and sampled some KY bourbon. We were not disappointed!

“Very Good but Noisy”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Scoring a table in the lobby bar area is not that easy. When we got a table, it was pretty noisy. There's a piano player playing the standard ballads. Order a Hot Brown. The Brown is where the sandwich originated. It's very rich, so 1 is good for 2 at lunch.

“Wonderful classic atmosphere”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Classic, cozy, time-portal to the past. Cocktails, Kentucky Bourbon, delicious food...happiness. I want a three piece suit, a monical, and a silver plated cane...relaxed and classy. Its hard to leave and return to the 21st century.
