This is a "must" restaurant for us to eat at when we are in town on business each year for the National Farm Machinery Show. Dave the owner is so hospitable and knowledgeable about the Louisville city. This is a "small" seating area and parking is a premium, they do carry-out and is always crowded, which means they have "great"... More

Our family party of 5 came here for lunch. Everyone ordered different food. Anything from fried and baked fish to oysters, and soups. Everyone loved their food. All was fresh and tasty. The gentleman who took our order was also very helpful, cheerful and accommodating.

Our friends gave us a gift certificate because it was their favorite restaurant. It is one of our top fish restaurants to go to. It is up there with Mike Linings! They have homemade tater sauce and even one is jalapeños tater sauce. Would highly recommend.

We were just passing through Louisville, and Husband saw the Fish House out of the corner of his eye. Stopped on a whim, and glad we did. Got a fried oyster sandwich made up for me, with fries and their clam chowder. The oysters were great, and while the chowder was a bit more like soup, it was tasty nonetheless.... More

Totally came here on a whim and so very glad I did. Service was excellent, restaurant family operated. Didn't matter with whom I was talking, they all were lovely. The only thing that topped the service was the food. Catfish, haddock, beignets not a spoiler in the bunch. All will please. Made my trip to Louisville a tasty one!

The fish can be ordered fried or baked, and there are several choices from which to choose. I ordered the baked scrod for $5.50 and was elated to get a giant-sized portion, much too large for the two pieces of rye bread that came with it. In addition to the regular tartar sauce, they offer "jalapeño" tartar sauce at no... More

AMAZING is the only way to describe the beignets. I love the pillow like pastry and when you bite in to the pillow and a little cloud of powdered sugar tickles your nose...breakfast heaven! You can't go wrong with the sausages...any type of "piggie" is just fine, thank you. The coffee is amazing and my favorite thing is to just... More

I have been gluten free for awhile now and not only did this amazing restaurant accommodate but it was the best gluten free meal I have ever had. If you have a gluten intolerance or celiac have no fear with this place. Just go and be amazed.

Following church with my 95 year old mother, we searched for a place in the old Highland area for a nice brunch. Although we have driven by The Fish House dozens of times my mother had never experienced their food and atmosphere. We chose to sit inside as it was another hot humid day in Louisville although outside seating is... More
