The meal was delicious if you don't mind the not so frequent order of grilled salmon, but it is worth the wait;

I try to get to Mike Linnigs every time I visit Louisville. Always great service and lots of food. The inside seating about the same as when I first started visiting, but they really have expanded the outdoor facilities. Can't wait to see what's next.

For some reason we only seem to get over here once a year. We miss them being at the State Fair or that would be twice. Everything is good and there is plenty of it. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Great Louisville tradition!

Has Mike Linnigs changed ownership recently? I don't see the same staff at the bar when picking up my order. I also don't see the Linnigs brothers in the drink Shack or at bar. I had heard rumor it had.
