I grew up in Louisville eating deep-fried food at Kingfish. When I was a kid, the Kingfish restaurants were themed to look like steamboats floating in an artificial pond (you arrived by walking across a "gangplank" bridge from the parking area to the restaurant). I don't know of any of the classic design restaurants still in existance. The new modern restaurants look more like any other chain suburbia style place. The interesting old riverfront themed photos and artwork are on the walls like I remember.
The food is still the same as I remembered, always crispy fried, never healthy, the way southern-fried food ought to taste.
I ordered a sprat fish sandwich. This is one of the cheaper items on the menu. This sandwich is similar to a "Moby Dick" sandwich (another Louisville area restaurant chain). If I was hungrier, I'd be ordering one of the combination platters loaded with all kinds of wonderful deep-fried goodness.
If you want healthy food, you'd probably do better elsewhere, but if you want tasty, crispy, not too greasy food full of yummy calories... this place hits the spot. I'm glad to see that the menu still offers DEEP-FRIED LOBSTER. I'm gonna have to put that one on my bucket list of items to try at least once.
