    Tasty Steaks a little overcooked. Sides not appetizing looking but tasted good (Brussels sprouts and mushrooms). Service very good.

    We have dined here several times as we often stay at the Enbassy suites which is connected. We were promptly seated and when asked our server recommended the goat cheese bruschetta which was outstanding. We both had the cornbread crusted salmon and it was very good. A generous perfectly cooked portion served over greens. The greens paired well with the Mac and cheese. We shared the warm butter cake which while better than average wasn’t anything amazing. I have two areas of opportunity. The Mac and cheese and potatoes that came with the salmon were both less than hot when served. I should note we did not complain. Lastly, Brendan’s needs to up their game in non alcoholic drinks. The only have one mocktail and O’Doums is their only NA beer. We’re usually drinkers but are abstaining for a while. Sam Adams Just the Haze would be a welcome addition to the beer list. Several Louisville places like Volare and Seviche have a robust mocktail menu for non drinkers. I always recommend Brendan’s to friends even with the occasional miss.

Discover Downtown Louisville

The state of Kentucky is known around the globe for its fried chicken, and Downtown Louisville has some of the best the state has to offer. While Louisville is famous for being the home of the world's largest fried chicken chain and second-largest fast food chain in the world, it boasts many independent chicken and waffle houses, gourmet fried chicken restaurants, and hole-in-the wall diners serving up this popular comfort food. When you visit the area, don't get so focused on finding the best fried chicken joint that you miss out on the many restaurants serving classic Southern cuisine such as breaded catfish, hush puppies and the Hot Brown, an open-face sandwich with bacon and turkey made popular by the Brown Hotel located in Downtown Louisville.
