Went there for the history and left after a good meal . Kind of dated , but what the heck --it is old . An interesting experience .

The title of the place is deceiving. It is located just across the street from Churchill Downs. And, it is a staple of both locals and loyal Derby attendees. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. But, do not expect a fine linen table experience.

The food was decent. Honestly went more for the experience/history of the place. While I heard they have massive omelets, we personally didn't order one.

I love places like this - old-fashioned food in an old building. We took a break from the Derby Museum for lunch here, on recommendation of our tour guide. Enjoyed it. Meals like patty melts, ham and cheese, burgers. Good quality, tasty.

Husband and our 3 kids had lunch after seeing the Kentucky Derby Museum. The Derby Sandwich was delicious. The chicken salad and vegetable beef soup were good. Good French fries. Much better choice than chain fast food!

Any trip to Churchill downs would not be complete without a stop at the historic Wagner Pharmacy for a hamburger. This place has been around since 1922 and is directly across the street from the track. It is a simple diner loaded with racing memorabilia....More
