We had a variety of dishes, there were 3 of us. Mussels, salad and a couple of burgers. The burgers were thick, mussels were most excellent. Not cheap, so if you are on a budget, this will stretch it. Also reviewed the downtown M&B Bar...More

A huge burger and a monster bowl of mussels what a combo. Beautiful restaurant right downtown with plenty of food choices. Prices were reasonable especially at lunch time. Have some dessert when you finish...great place.

Met some friends for lunch, about ten of us. I have been here several times and was familiar with the menu which, some may consider limited as it is all about mussels and burgers. I prefer a restaurant doing a few things well than many...More

Date is off but oh well...had the “local burger” with heirloom potatoes...burger was great and cooked perfectly. Potatoes were a great addition and a nice parting from the normal “fries” side. Definitely worth a stop when in Louisville.

I would say this restaurant stays close to the menu and that would mean a big "no". While they do produce good food they are as slow as a snail.

I think they will do private party type situation, but no reservations for medium size parties. We had 10 people and we could not do call ahead. We waited a good 45 minutes.
