Steakhouse
Repeal is Whiskey Row’s only oak-fired steakhouse, located at the birthplace of J.T.S. Brown & Sons Bourbon Company in Louisville. A stylish departure from a traditional steakhouse, Repeal uses a wood-fired grill stoked daily with reclaimed American Oak bourbon barrels. Repeal is a tribute to the Repeal of Prohibition – a place to see, be seen and celebrate the rich tradition of the building in which it resides.

    Food was very good but overpriced. Our waiter was uninterested, arrogant and only engaging if he thought we were going to be big spenders. We ordered a salad and appetizer but only one entree and two craft cocktails with subsequent glass of wine and bourbon. Bill with tip was $150. Would think twice about recommending the restaurant.

    We dined at Repeal yet again to celebrate a professional achievement. Loreal was our server. As always, the food was pure perfection. Our app was the French onion soup; I had the 22oz bone-in steak. We had sides of mashed potatoes and mushrooms. For dessert, we feasted on the bread pudding. The food…pure perfection. All of it. Add to this perfection Loreal’s excellent server skills. We had a top-notch experience as always. Highly recommend Repeal.

    Steak was under cooked. Asked for medium and got rare in middle of filet. I’m not one to send things back as the waitress offered to put just the middle of steak back in to cook longer really would’ve liked a new steak cooked properly as the outside edges of filet were fantastic. But overall great place that was my only complaint.

    We went for brunch and were underwhelmed with the experience. It took over 20 minutes to get a glass of champagne. I got the American and there was nothing special about it.

    We enjoyed brunch at the lovely Repeal restaurant. The food was very good, and service was efficient. The wait for our table was a little longer than expected since we had a reservation.

    Before we were seated at our table, we waited at the bard, but the bar was understaffed, and it was impossible to get a drink. Oysters were not fresh, and we had to return them. Poorly trained waiter did not know what to do about the oysters, so she assured us they are delivered fresh every day. If that is true, the restaurant has a serious problem with the quality of food delivered by its supplier. Server was enthusiastic but inexperiences and was far too talkative. We finally had to ask her politely to stop talking and let us have some time to ourselves. Noise level too high, converstation across our table was difficult.
