    This restaurant is our 'fancy place' to eat brunch, as my kids identified it, and for the past few years, we celebrated special occasions here, attended numerous brunches at their old location, and always had a great tasting food. This was our first time eating non-brunch food and first time at the new location. Cleanliness and staff professionalism, still at par. Four of us had two appetizers, three entrees, side of potatoes, and caser salad. Salmon entree was awesome! Short rib should be called pot roast. That's what the texture and flavor was for us. This could be partially due to meat supply availability, but then it shouldn't be sold under 'short rib' description and pricing. Caesar salad and fingerling potatoes both had sweet after taste, little bit odd for the caeser dressing. Hamburger entree was nice, although, I didn't understand what was going on with fries - looked burnt. My kids ate some of them, so I guess flavor was good. Queso dip with brisket was the hit with everyone. I asked for just a plain queso, for the kids, and our server offered to have a brisket and Pico de Gallo on the side, so great job there. Chicken wings were overcooked which made them dry. My youngest loves hot wings and eats them at every place we go to. Unfortunately, Fork & Barrels are at the bottom of her ranking list. Wings came with the Alabama white barbeque sauce that had a radish taste. I loved it, but no one else at the table did. I dipped few bites of "short rib" in it, and paired well for me. Husband and I share our entrees and we both concluded that we won't be ordering short rib here, again. And yes, we'll be back. Kids won't we are told, unless we go for a brunch. Husband and I will continue going through the menu until we both have our favorites. So for now, we got salmon entree and brisket queso.

    Our food was good and it is always fun to try new places but I would not eat here again. It took 45 minutes to get our appetizer and the place wasn’t busy and all the tables around us were getting their food. If you like new places I would for sure give it a try but for us the food was just good not amazing and for 145.00 bill for two I want my food to be WOW.

    The food was outstanding and well priced. Everyone was very hospitable and friendly. We will definitely return for another meal. My partner raved over his burger, the fritters were very good, the shrimp and grits contained excellent andouille sausage with perfectly cooked shrimp.

    We had a wonderful dinner here. My wife is wheelchair bound and the manager went out of his way to rearrange the tables to make it easier for her. I really appreciate this kind of service. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and will return the next time I’m in Louisville.
