    We chose the fried goat cheese and pretzels for starters and they were both perfection! The pretzels were a unique take and expertly executed. For mains the table enjoyed were steak, frites, battered fish and cocktails. Everything was wonderful! Can’t wait to plan our next visit. Our waiter was attentive and friendly! Our experience was exceptional!

    I want to take this time to commend Annie for staying late on yesterday to accommodate myself and my guest. This is one quality that I appreciate about Annie regarding her regular customers. Please forward these words to her and let her know that I appreciate her going the extra mile to make my experience and visit an enjoyable one. Keep up the good work and train others around you to do the same!!!

    My hubs and another couple went for date night. The Exchange did not disappoint! Our server, Miss Sunshine, was a delight, and paced the evening correctly by not rushing our courses. My husband really enjoyed the Old Fashioned while we ate our appetizer of goat cheese fritters. My husband was super impressed by the volcano pork shank, and I was equally as impressed by the GOAT burger, and Brussels! We will definitely be back!!! Great date night choice!

    The second time was possibly even better than the first. We sat in a covered outdoor area, not nearly as noisy as indoors. Good selection of drinks, fabulous food and solid service. The wings were excellent! The Nashville Hot chicken was not nearly as greasy as most other places while the mac and cheese side was among the best we have had. The coleslaw was good, but not great. Very good live music playing this time as well!

    Everything was great but the male bartender was very rude and very unprofessional. Once my date and I got there the hostess guided us to the high top section, once we were seated for 5 minutes, the male bartender walked over and said “I need your IDs for you to sit here” in a very rude manner .. My date left her purse in the truck and she didn’t plan on drinking The bartender kicked us out of the high top section and made us walk back to the hostess Once we got our new table our waitress and food was great. If any manager reads this. Please make sure your bartender is professional enough.

    Very, very disappointed in the new menu. There is hardly anything on it, and several popular items are no longer on it. There are only a few items on the new menu I would eat. Will definitely think before booking here again due to limited menu.

    We’ve been to the exchange several times and enjoyed it each time. Our server needed s a little pep in her step, I think she took a Valium before she came to work. Our first round of drinks were not correct, they did fix it but I can’t understand how you mess up a cosmo or basic Jack & Diet Coke. The menu needs a few more items added back, it has gotten really sparse.

    Restaurant is beautiful, food was amazing, and drinks were great! I want to commend our waitress Camille for outstanding service! We went back a second time to have drinks and were lucky enough to have her again. She was attentive, not pushy, personable, and gave great recommendations! One of the best servers I have had in a long time. I would definitely go back to this restaurant if I was ever in New Albany again!
